Make Me Over Friday

I finally got to try some mascara I've been eyeing!  I usually use Benefit Bad Gal mascara, but Benefit just came out with a new mascara called "They're Real".  This mascara has had excellent reviews so far & I must say it did not disappoint, I was really impressed with it!

Here is my Before/After photo :
This jet-black mascara lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts & separates lashes for a spectacular "out-to-here" look.  The exclusive brush is specially designed to maximize the performance of the long-wearing, glossy formula-revealing lashes you never knew you had!
Some Stats :

94% saw dramatic length and volume

90% saw base-to-tip curl

94% saw visible lift

100% saw long-wearing results

Staggered bristles grab close to the root, boosting length & volume beyond belief. The precision bristles on the custom-domed tip lift, define & curl even your tiniest lashes. The end result...luxurious, silky lashes that won't smudge, clump or dry out.

 See the difference???

I also recieved my 4th Birchbox in the mail.  I was really impressed with last months box.  This month....not so much.  I like to recieve MAKEUP, not oil & granola bars???  What? 

The box was wrapped pretty :
 This was what was in my box :
Hopefully next month it will have more makeup goodies in it ;)
Happy Friday Yuns :-)

I've been using a sample of that mascara all week and I love it!

Hey, you can send that lotion from your Birchbox to me! I love that stuff! I have some in my purse right now - that same scent! ha!

I have been using BadGal and I'm not exactly in love... but wow, this new stuff looks promising. Now I'm dying to try it!

And holy crap, your eyes are THE MOST AMAZING color. POP POP! So gorgeous.

If this is a duplicate sorry... I have issues commenting sometimes from my phone.

At least you got some Philosophy stuff! Love all oof their stuff.

I've heard about this 'scara.... I'm a bit of a tough critic. Bad Gal has far too large of a wand for me. This year so far I've veared from my standby Definicils and tried YSL, Trish McEvoy, Ojon & now Mary Kay's Lash Love. I am anxious to try this though when my current tube dries up! Looks promising!

Thanks for the review!

I love that mascara too!

I've been getting Birchbox for the past two months and haven't been all that impressed. That box doesn't impress me that much either. This may be my last month I'm afraid.

Hahahaha! I find myself here again. Every once in awhile I read a few of the SMYL on Kelly's Korner and this is the second or maybe third time I chose Java Mama without even knowing it was you. That is just too funny to me.
