What are you thankful for?

Tomorrow's Thanksgiving... there's a lot to be thankful for in one's life.

Here's what I'm thankful for this year...

My little family

The love I get from my wonderful hubby


My siblings (these aren't even all of them)


My friends...pictured only 3 since it would take too much space to put pics up of all the closer friends I have

My team at work

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving of spending time with loved ones and getting fat with them.
Happy Thanksgiving!!

Smokey Purple

I hate feeling fine at home and then getting to work and feeling kinda crappy.
I feel like my nose is all stuffy and I've been sneezing like crazy all morning... must be allergic to work or something.  LOL  No I blame the cold weather we're having today.

Wanted to share my makeup look today with you guys since I hardly ever wear any colored eye shawdows anymore. 

Hope everyone has a good Thanksgiving!!

Battle It Out: Drugstore brand Volumizing Waterproof Mascara

Hey ladies!!  It's been forever and a day since I blogged.  Unforunately, I had to create a new blog since my old one was giving me trouble with not even letting me edit a post.  I guess it is what it is. 

To start things off, I thought I'd battle out my two favorite drugstore brand waterproof volumizing mascaras.  (I am not one to like regular mascara at all since my straight Asian lashes don't stay curled)

In the first corner, the one I've been using for years, Covergirl Lashblast Waterproof Mascara.

Holds the curls in my lashes great
Gives me great looking lashes after 2 coats
I feel it gives my lashes a little more length as well
Doesn't pick up too much product

The brush is too big (mainly for my lower lashes)
A pain in the butt to get off at the end of the day (I still find I get a little "racoon" eyed in the mornings)

In the second corner, Maybelline Falsies Waterproof Mascara.

Holds the curls in my lashes
Looks good after 2 coats
Easier to take off at the end of the day

Too much product comes out with the brush after the first couple uses
I don't know how I feel about the curled wand (pro & con)

Overall, I love the Lashblast more so than the Falsies but I wouldn't mind having both still in my makeup collection.  I say give both a try regardless what type of lashes you have to see which you prefer. 

Oh and what I have been doing lately is putting on one coat of the Falsies and then a coat of Lashblast on top.  Makes my lashes look better, in my opinion.

Hope this was helpful to everyone.  Til the next time, I hope you all have a great weekend!!
