mid week pick me up…

After what seems like the longest week ever, and as it stands it’s only mid-afternoon Thursday, I decide to treat myself with beauty products.

gloss and mascara

Nothing like mascara and lip gloss to make Thursday seem more like a Saturday.  And bought myself some flowers.  

Oh and I made brownies (they’re gone).  

And am having a glass of sauvignon blanc (almost gone but thank God it’s refillable).

dior gloss

My make-up arsenal consists of gloss and mascaras.

This Dior gloss, Creme de Rose, is incredible.  Smells like roses and not like old ladies.  It’s plumping without being sticky.

And everyone always need more mascaras.  My two current favorites are Dior Addict It-Lash and Marc Jacobs Omega.  Layer for almost fake looking length.  I’m southern, I like mascara.  A lot of it.

julepApparently I had decided as early as Monday this was already the longest week of my thirty years because that was when I ordered my present to myself online.

Ten hours and counting til Friday…

 My favorite beauty tool, known to woman, is mascara.  I usually have about three or four favorites going around in the mascara rotation at any given time: Estee Lauder Sumptuous Volume, Lancome Hypnose Star and any wand from Maybelline is pretty much amazing.

Recently while perusing Vogue, I saw a picture of the new Lancome Grandiose wand and knew I had to have it.

Once I mastered the wand (which did take a couple tries), it flew to the front of the mascara line.  Super black, gets every lash and makes for some dramatic lashes.

Now I just need to get my hands on the crazy Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes mascara.  Next up on the lashwishlist.
