Girl, Your Eyelashes are GORG!

March 19, 2013 in I Adore What I Love

Everyone has something about them that people have complemented them on since the day they were born.  For some people it’s their thick, beautiful hair.  For others it’s their vivacious personality or gorgeous skin tone.

Well, my something is my eyes lashes. 

Since I was a little girl, random strangers would tell me how pretty my eyes are. They would ask me why I’m wearing mascara at such a young age and I would tell them that I wasn’t! Later in life, the complements became few and far between and when I was old enough to actually wear mascara, of course I had to have it… and I wanted to find the one that would make my eyes stand out even more.

I used Diorshow for sometime and while I liked it a lot, it never failed to give me raccoon eyes.  Annoying! Since then, I have been through a plethora of different high-end and pharmacy grade brands (ie. Benefit, Lancome, Maybelline, MAC, etc) searching for the one that would not only stay on, but would also thicken, volumize, and lengthen my lashes too. It had to be smudge-proof, flake-proof, and most importantly make my eyes pop to the umpteenth degree!  I read review after review, with many of the brands that I’ve tried throughout the years definitely impressing me; but none had it all.  Did I ever believe that I would find such a magical mascara that did? Absolutely NOT.

But after fifteen years of searching, I can tell you that I have finally found it.  And it’s amazing.
Enter Urban Decay Big Fatty Mascara and let me tell you: it works!

It makes your eyes big… and fatty

You know how I know?  In the past two weeks alone since I’ve started using it, the complements from random strangers telling me about my “gorg” eyes have been rolling in on the daily. No joke. And on top of that, out of nowhere, my coworkers have said the same thing.  Ummm, I think I’ll stick with this one ;)

So, for .25 seconds I thought about keeping this gem a secret… but my better senses took over.
Don’t wait 15 years to find the perfect mascara like I did. Just go get this one. Now!

(You can thank me later)
