Have You Voted in the MAC Originals Contest?

Have you been to the MAC Site to see the entries in the MAC Originals contest? I am blown away at some of the makeup looks that have been submitted.

mac_original.jpg You can view entries by newest submissions and the most popular.

I will be the first to say that I do not know how the most popular have all the points that they do, but hey, it's just my opinion!

The contest runs through the end of this month, January 31st, so if you want to submit a photo of yourself, you better get one in now. And if you do not want to enter, it is a definite must to check out the entries and vote for your favorite. I am narrowing down my choices, but as new submissions keep popping up, I may wait until closer to the end of the contest to place my vote.

If you do submit an Originals entry, please let me know in the comments with a link to your entry, as we would love to see it. 


Covergirl's LashBlast for Thick and Full Lashes.

Add another favorite mascara to my list.

Covergirl recently launched LashBlast Volume Blasting Mascara, and it does as it's name says, makes lashes full thick, full of volume, and all without clumping, smudging or flaking at all. 


The orange brush threw me off at first, but it is actually a fuller version of my new favorite rubber-like type of applicators. My lashes were thick enough with just one, slow coating, and lengthened enough to make me all around lash happy.

LashBlast ($7.50) comes in two formulas, the regular version (which I am using) as well as a waterproof version. Each of them is available in four shades: Very Black, Black (my choice), Black Brown, and Brown.

Let me know if you have tried Covergirl LashBlast and how you like this new mascara.
