I’ve decided to start a new series in the spirit of sharing my experience with different products (some makeup some not) I’ll pick two: one that totally hit it out of the park and one that completely fell flat for me.
This week is a quite random edition (but maybe prepare yourself for random editions since I kinda think it might be like that often:)
Let’s start with the bad news and just get that out of the way.
Younique 3D Mascara. This is fail I’ve been sitting on for a while now, I get asked about it often. The reason I haven’t talked about it until now is because, while it was a total bummer for me I know lots of people totally love it. I have some theories as to why that is, so let me explain.
I tried it 100 different ways. I tried going light, heavy. One coat, two coats & three coats. I tried it with different mascaras. Each time my lashes looked more like squashed spider legs. (my brows are pretty sad in this photo as well:(
Two things to keep in mind though:
1. I am USED to the look of false lashes and lash extensions. That is just my personal taste. I have never really liked the way heavy mascara looks, while some people definitely do like that look. I have noticed it’s actually a popular look right now actually!
2. I have very short/sparse lashes and I’ve noticed most people that really love this product have pretty good lashes to begin with so the product has more area to build on without clumping up so much.
I really liked the idea of not needing falsies to get glam lashes and I’m stoked for all the gals who have had great results with it, I’m just not one of them.
On to the good news!
Another product I get asked about constantly is Billy’s Amber Bead Teething Necklace. (A necklace he wears made of amber beads that are supposed to be a natural anesthetic from teething pain)
Does that thing actually work?
Well the truth is I don’t know for sure that it removes his pain. He can’t talk and he does still seem to be bothered by teething with it on. What I do know for certain is it does help with the drooling associated with teething pain. Before we got the necklace he was drooling though every single shirt we put on him in a matter of minutes.
We put it on and like magic there was no more drool! I didn’t even believe it the first time I just thought he must be growing out of the drool faze…until we took the necklace off and he went right back to being a faucet.
It really makes a huge difference. Plus it looks really cute on him. I will say no matter what he’s wearing people CONSTANTLY assume he’s a girl but I’m not sure if the fact that he’s wearing a necklace is the cause of that or his crazy lashes:)
Hope you guys had a great labor day weekend!
