I'm a winner!

I won a blog giveaway from Karissa at Cardio Foodie for mascara, which is seriously my favorite makeup product. I am forever buying new mascara looking for that magical one. So I was happy to win a new one! I never win anything.

I thought I would take some pictures and give a mini review for y'all since she was so kind to send it to me : )

I won Loreal Voluminous, which I love and is a great, basic volumizing mascara, and Maybelline Great Lash Big. Great Lash is supposed to be this amazing, classic mascara...and I think it sucks. It just doesn't do anything for me at all. But people rave about it and it is one of the all time best selling mascaras! I don't get it. So I was moderately skeptical about the supposed Big version.




You can see how fat the Big wand is.

Now for the scary part! On me. Let me tell you, taking close up self portraits is humbling. "Why is my face askew? Do I have that many freckles? My nose is totally asymmetrical. I should put on some concealer. Dude, I am radioactively pale."





Without any mascara. Or enough sleep, apparently.







Using Great Lash Big










Wow, that is a lot of pictures of my face. Anyway, I surprisingly really liked the different Great Lash! It has a fat wand which is good for volume. My eyelashes are longish but thin, so I use volumizing mascara. It has the right amount of mascara on the wand from the start-not too runny, not clumpy at all. It wasn't OMG AMAZING, but was pretty great for a $4 mascara. It would make a great everyday mascara. I didn't take pictures of the Voluminous, but it is one of my all-time favorites. I do think that it can be too thick/runny right when it is opened. It works great on almost everyone, so I didn't think it warranted pictures. The Great Lash was surprising, so I took some pictures : ) 

Thanks Karissa for the giveaway!!


What is your favorite mascara? Have you ever won anything? Are you working out today? 


I think I'm taking today off, my legs are just too sore from a good run yesterday!

Your blog is amazing! (and you have insanely gorgeous eyes, by the way). It's like reading a magazine, but with more personality. Love it!
