Monday Mix: Reader Questions, and, of course, SALES

By Voxy  

coffee break by e's.What’s that smell? Must be the delicious aroma of Monday! Either that, or it’s the scent of Thanksgiving foods wafting over from that other thread. Mmm, sweet potatoes with marshmallows.

Reader Question that I’m forwarding to the group:

Elsie asked:

“Speaking of mascara, I would like some tips. I have long eyelashes on top, but the tips are light, so you can’t tell how long they actually are without mascara. But they’re long enough that my lashes smear the inside of my glasses’ lenses and wet mascara ends up on both my lenses and my eyelids. Do you have any tips for mascara application that will keep the mascara from getting all over?”

You can find my answers to her here, but what suggestions are you all hiding under your collective hats?

    Shadow Insurance- yes, based on your recommendation. =)

    I bought some new eyeshadow that looks pretty for about an hour and then seems to just fade away. I’m hoping the primer nips that in the bud (or slows it down!)

    Will report back.

    Thanks for the sales posting! I just bought some eyelid primer from Too Faced and the secret code made the shipping free.

      Oh, did you get the Shadow Insurance? I *love* that product! Let me know what you think of it — I have a review planned for the nearish future (Dec./Jan.) and would love to hear whether you like it or not.
