Cosmetic Case of the Mondays

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  We had a pretty chill weekend, dodging some crappy weather, but the real highlight was that my best friend gave birth to the most beautiful baby boy on Friday!  I was able to meet him on Saturday and I of course fell in love instantly! Even though Sam’s almost one (turned 11 months on Friday which makes the boys exactly 11 months apart!), it was like I forgot how tiny they are when born!  And Sam’s not even a big boy!  All my love to both families and baby Mason!

Moving on to the makeup…

You’d be shocked (or not) to know how many mascaras are currently living in my bathroom.  I’m not even going to count.  It’s like Melrose Place of mascaras.  But of course once I hear of another good one, it’s move-in day!  So last weekend my good friend Julie told me how she’s loving her new L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara.  That it’s so good it almost makes her mad that it’s so cheap while she owns other pricey ones.  Obvi I had to check it out for myself!

So the “butterfly brush” is pretty intense!  Its asymmetrical lash line is intended to extend and lift outer corner lashes to give you a winged-out effect, volumizing lashes at the roots and stretching lashes outward.  It also contains Cocoon Fibers that are meant to wrap lashes to create silky and spectacular lashes that flutter.  Feel like Mariah Carey yet?!

I have to say I really did like it!  Especially for drugstore mascara!  I of course used my Dior Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum primer underneath (I’m not kidding when I say I ALWAYS use it underneath EVERY mascara!) and I loved the formula of the mascara itself (I went with Blackest Black) and the brush is pretty cool!  A bit funny to use at first but definitely easy once you get the hang of it.  I just had to make sure I wasn’t going to poke myself or anything.  All in all, a great find!  Thanks Jules!!

Cheers to a great week and go Noles!
