EauMG’s July 2015 Empties

July 2015 Empties

I put myself into an informal “no buy” in July. I was doing really well until about the middle of the month. David needed me to order him some skincare. And I did. But, I added a couple of items for myself too. Oops. I also ended up buying some liquid lipsticks at Ricky’s and some sheet masks in K-Town. I’ll be more serious about it in August.

I’ve decided in July that I need to “tackle” some of these samples… Continue reading | 12 Comments

Maybelline The Falsies Volum Express Mascara Review

Maybelline The Falsies MascaraI really should of trusted Public Enemy when they said “Don’t believe the hype.” When will a beauty addict learn? I think the answer is never. Here’s a little about me: I’m a Taurus. I like seaside picnics. I like to watch The Ghost Whisperer. I collect glassware. And I have thick and super short lashes.

Maximum Impact? Clinique High Impact Volume Mascara Review

After many years of mascara usage I have finally came to the conclusion that I really do not look good in volumizing mascara. Don’t get me wrong. I love a heavy handed mascara application, it gives just enough of a trashy look but I’m not wild about “mascara”. For years, I have been searching for that perfect one. I even tried match.com and online dating services but they had nothing to offer me either. I’ve finally learned that I am a false lashes kind of girl. If I want extreme long clump-free lashes… Continue reading
