my First crappy product of 2013!

***purchased by me!***

Maybelline Master Duo in Violet Luster I'm looking at you

What it promises..

Go from Thin to Thick with the Twist of Your Wrist
Experience the revolution in liquid liner with eye studio master duo glossy liquid liner's unique 2-in-1 dual tip applicator:  Create thin, precise lines with one side and bold, thick lines with the other.

Okay, according to instructions..it must be shaken first. So I shake it. and shake it. and shake it. and test it. one swipe of color provides a watery less than pigmented sample. two swipes, not much better, three swipes, not even close to the picture.

Now quite honestly, I do not have time in the mornings to reline my eyes 3 times. I honestly can't think of many women in the real world that do. 
This in my mind was a complete waste of time and money, and back to Target it went. I would have swatch photos of this, but this was one of those products that annoyed me so badly I could not wait to return it.

ohhh, I am getting another voxbox.!!

for those of you that don't know about Influenster vox box this is a free program and they send you boxes of goodies every once in a while that is geared to what interests you in your life.
last one i got was last Nov..so very excited for this...

 And do check them out!  Linkie
On other news, I have started taking 5000 mcg biotin every day. I figure with the cocount oil working on the outside I should work on the inside.
I am also going on a one month no buy (March) to try to save up some money so hubby & myself can go on vacation.  Also I would like to use up some of the excess items I have in the house.

nails of the weekend

Still going to do the AndreasChoice lip thing...
however this week was a bust for anything other than trying to stay upright. I do swear I seem to have the worst luck! Got sidelined by a GI bug that was developed by evil scientists! 12 straight hours of the worst pain and vomiting I have ever withstood. And since my work place is so understanding about illnesses...back in the next day. Did I mention I'm a nursing assistant? and work is where I caught the bug in the first place? So 4 days of constant handwashing,santizing, and glove wearing...and needless to say my nails were toast. Been putting on a coat or two of Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails. And since I'm off today I did a quicky color of L.A. Colors NP116 Berry Red.
Not too terribly impressed all in all...3 coats and it's barely as red as the bottle. But for a two day nail color I guess it will do!
I will say this, they have minimal chipping and I've done a ton of dishes this weekend.

experiment time!

I really should not watch so much YouTube...

that being said for the next week I'm going to try the suggestions that Andrea from Andreaschoice has in her video (link below) for pinker lips. Now I have some really pigmented lips...but my upper lip has been getting lighter... Not 100% sure what is going on...may very well be an age thing, but let's try it..

Love the start of this video.."put the cup down...!"
I already do the toothbrush trick. She has some really good suggestions. (never heard the orange one..)

and today i got to do something nice for mommy

So my mom cannot find her beloved Max Factor Clear Mascara anywhere. Umm, mom?  Sorry but Covergirl decided us Americans do not need Max Factor..../sob!!
So  I went out and got her presents...on the mascara side I got her Covergirl's, Jane's, and E.L.F. clear mascaras so she can try them out and decide which she likes.
Also got her the Anastasia's brow powder duo in medium ash/medium brown for her brows. And got her the Essence eyeliner brush to apply it. Since the one she has is prolly from 1988. Love my mom, but she is not all about buying the brushes.

This week was a bust..hehe

Hopefully get some pictures of my Wet n Wild finds over the weekend. Sorry all, but my asthma has been less than cooperative this week. It's still worlds better than November was, but not as good as it was in December. And currently waiting on the newest Ipsy bag. Not too excited over this months, don't really need anything in there or interested in it, but whatever..I'll give it another month.
