ain't worth the hype
so i was reading the latest "best of" articles in allure magazine - you know, where voters rate all sorts of skin care, makeup, body, etc. products? and there are a few things that always get great reviews and raves that i just don't get.
- diorshow mascara. yeah, it's got a big ass fluffy brush. and you'd think $26 on a damn tube of mascara would guarantee some fabulously lush lashes that create a breeze when you blink. and it seems that folks from celebrities to makeup artists to regular ol' women absolutely swear by this stuff. but i've been using it for a while now, and i just don't get it. i actually think i get better results from $5 drugstore brands.
- creme de la mer. i'm thankful that i had enough samples of this stuff to last me a couple of months - because the hub would've put me six feet under had i bought an actual jar - to the tune of $150. i thought i'd slap this shit on and the angels would sing and fairy dust would shoot out of my ass and my skin would be glowing and gorgeous. um, not so much.
- shu uemura eyelash curler. it's cool and all, and really, $15 isn't that much of an investment on something i can use for at least a year. but i honestly didn't notice that much of a difference between this curler and the $3 revlon one i used to get at tar-jay. [shrug]
