I hate this mascara!!!

Dior Show - $25 at Sephora

I know I's been listed in magazines as one of the best ... but it's not!!  Save your money!!!

I bought this mascara a few months ago at Sephora when I had a 15% off coupon ... I thought ... why not give it a whirl.  Let me just say that I should have picked something better to use my coupon on.  This mascara is HORRIBLE.

The wand is too big so it touches like every part of your eye lid and FORGET trying to put it on the bottom lashes!  It comes out too thick on the brush so it goes on like an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico!  Once you get it on and fix all the mess you get to work and realize that it has smeared across your eyelid AND burns your eye like someone is poking you in the eye with a red hot poker!

The worst part (as if it could get worse) it doesn't even do anything extraordinary to your lashes ... it doesn't make them look fuller or look longer they just look like you have mascara on.

So since I paid a little over $20 for this mascara ... I've been wearing it and suffering everyday for it.  So over the weekend, I said to myself ... enough is enough!  I am going back to the mascara that I love and that works GREAT.

Maybelline Great Lash!!

I got it for a little over $4 at Target!  This mascara is great!  It comes in a few different varieties which are all great except for the new Lots of Lash (I did a post on this click HERE).  

So sometimes the best things in life are the cheaper ones!!


  1. I do like Maybeline's Great Lash, but I also really love Dior show. It never gave me any problem. xoxo

  2. I love your descriptions... "so it goes on like an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico!" And I also share your love of drugstore products!

  3. hello, Friday ~ I wonder why it works so well for you...I've been trying to wear it for weeks and it SUCKS!

    aki ~ thanks ;) I just think that sometimes you're just paying for the packaging and name with higher end can find things that work just as well in the drugstore...not all but some!

    Thank you both for your comments!

  4. It wowed me at first but later it gave me meh. Personally I think it's up to the individual and their lashes. It works wonder for some but not for others. The maybelline one is a classic. I love it and always keep one around. It's no wonder it's still around.

12 Things You Need for Successful Weight Loss

1) Get your head in the game! Weight loss doesn't happen without dedication.  You have to have the mindset to get it done.  I've said in the past that motivation for me is like a light switch ... when it's on it is ON.  Even though motivation is one of the key things you need ~ you also need patience, understanding, time, and willpower.  You have to make a commitment to yourself and stick with it. 2) Track your progress! Tracking keeps you honest to yourself.  Without tracking you can sabotage yourself into overeating.  For example, tell me EVERYTHING you ate on Friday off the top of your head, not so easy right?  Also, there are tons of apps out there that you can quickly track or you can do it the old fashion way of writing it down.  Find what works for you and do it daily.  Also, as a rule I normally track my whole day in the morning.  Breakfast, Lunch, Snack & Dinner.  This also keeps me in track.  I can budget out my day and make changes if things arise or when y…

It's Okay Thursday/Hello Monday #5

... to be so productive that you "forget" to blog!

... to have tire issues on April Fool's Day and have to preface every text with ... this is NOT an April Fool's joke.

... to buy 11 items from the dollar days area at Target in an effort to get organized.  {hmmmm ... maybe a good idea for a blog post.}

... to forget to finish this post!

Hello Monday#5 It is truly amazing how much better my makeup and hair look on the weekend. So if you have never tried Starbucks Via Iced Coffee - I highly recommend. So I just watched Into the Woods over the weekend.  Why did the music sound EXACTLY like Sweeney Todd? Seriously I even googled that sh!t and came up with nothing. Why is it on weekends I am all about managing my down time  like it was my last meal or something.  Um no, I cannot do XYZ,  that is a total lack of consideration to my weekend of staying at  home and doing nothing for 48 hours straight.  
How are you doing today?
