BEST MASCARA EVER!!! (+ my favorite eyeliner)

So I'm not a big make-up gal... never have been... I've tried, but really the only staples I use are eyeliner, mascara and lip gloss.  Let's face it, these things take no time to put on and in my case I find it necessary.  My eyelashes are so short and light that it almost looks like they don't exist at all.

I was fine with my current mascara but when my friend (who I had met through blogging/emailing because we had both lost babies) started selling this mascara, I became intrigued.  The pictures she would post looked too good to be true.  I was a bit skeptic but for a friend was ready to take the leap.  The mascara is about $30, but if it did what it said it did and lasted 2-3 months I thought it would be worth it!

The mascara comes in what looks like a hard, glasses' case and there are two mascara wands inside.  The directions on the product are a little different than the way I use it (they say you can start with your old mascara but to be honest, when I got this stuff, I threw out my old mascara).

The way to apply it is to use the long wand first.  It basically looks like a regular mascara but is also a gel.  So you use the long wand and apply mascara.  Then you take the short wand (which contains the fibers) and put the fibers on (similar to putting on mascara).  The fibers really only need to be on the top half of your lashes (not all the way down to the base like you would put mascara).  The fibers are what stick to your lashes and make them look longer.  You can apply as many coats as you'd like to make them as long as you'd like.  I made a video tutorial/review that you can see HERE if you are a more visual learner.  You can also see my before, pitiful little lashes and feel sorry for me! ;-)

Here's a close up so you can see what my lashes look like with this mascara on!  If you want to order some, you can contact my friend, Deni.  There is a link at the bottom of the video I made and the product is shipped directly to your house.
(Thanks for your order if you choose to place one.)

And while I'm talking about mascara and make-up, I thought I'd share my new favorite eyeliner!  It's awesome!!!  I found it (ironically) by checking out reviews on Amazon and then picked it up at my local store to try.  Turns out that Amazon was cheaper.  If you want to check that out too, click HERE.

4.5 Stars and over 400 reviews is pretty good!
