my secret {makeup} weapon

Once upon a time, shortly after Mia was born I got eyelash extensions, and I loved them! I felt so pretty with long, gorgeous lashes and I didn't mind the upkeep... until Mia grew out of the stage where she slept for hours at a time, whether it was in her car seat, crib, my arms, wherever! It became to much of a hassle to get my lashes touched up every 2-3 weeks so I quit. And I missed them, I missed them a lot! I have debated over time whether I can commit to the upkeep and putting them back on, but I ultimately decided that it's just plain expensive and not in our budget to have gorgeous eyelashes. Then I was introduced to Younique 3D Fiber Lash Mascara.
Now, these pictures might suck (Eric doesn't pretend to be a pro at photography and let's face it, pictures of eyes are kind of freaky and it's hard to make 'em look good! While I'm at it, I don't pretend to be a pro at applying mascara... ha!) but this mascara doesn't! I won't lie, it was kind of a pain applying the multiple coats my first time or two, but now it's just a normal part of my routine! When I ran out of the 3D Fiber Lash, I actually waited a bit to purchase some more. I wanted to be sure I loved this stuff because I've never spent more than $5 on mascara before in my life... but I couldn't stay away for long! This is way cheaper than extensions (although, I can't promise I wouldn't go back to those if we could afford it, HA!) and I find the time in my day to apply make up, so what's a couple more minutes (versus an hour or more, plus finding a babysitter to go get lash touch ups) of applying a couple coats of mascara for amazing eyelashes?!
Anyway, I just wanted to share my find for beautiful lashes (wish you could see these in person so that my eyes don't freak you out, ha ha!) and if you're interested in checking them out for yourself, go here!

I keep seeing weird Instagram ads and stuff for this and I thought it was a scam and the people's Instagrams were hacked or something!

Good to know. I am a firm believer in the maybelline stuff that gets all.over.my.eyes. Not. It's just cheap so I use it anyways and blink carefully for a few minutes. Will definitely be trying this out!
