Stuff from Stephers

I used to share a blog with Melissa, but she's been MIA for a few months, so I made it all mine! Random thoughts on my every day life to bore you with.

Maybe she's born with it...

but it's definitely not Maybelline. I'm on the hunt for my favorite mascara or anything similar. It's not the clearest photo but I've tried tons of mascara's in the last few weeks trying to find a replacement. I normally use Revlon's Colorstay Extra Thick Waterproof mascara. It holds the curl to my lashes, isn't too liquidy, doesn't clump on the brush, or my eyes really (unless you have something to tell me that I never noticed) and darkens perfectly. Unfortunately, it seems that maybe they've stopped making it. Why you would quit when you have the absolute best mascara is beyond me. My next runner up so far is Cover Girl's Mascara Triple, and then Loreal featherLash. Both are ok. I used the Cover Girl Fantastic Lash only once, and once was enough. Same goes for the Max Factor IFX Lash Perfection. It might have a cool rubber brush, but the stuff doesn't dry so if you blink you get mascara all over your face. So if anyone has any mascara suggestions, or knows where I can find the Revlon Colorstay Extra Thick, comment away.

L'Oreal Volumninous mascara is the best ever. In my humble opinion.

Although, if you're into pricey stuff, I hear the Lancome mascara is really great too.

Since I (sort of) wear make-up now, I feel like I should offer my very humble opinion. I agree, Maybeline mascara is crap--don't buy the hype! I use Almay Lengthening in Black. Good brush, no clumps and really does lengthen.

Thanks everyone for the reccomendations (sp?), looking in CA, and online for me - even people who didn't comment sent me links to places. Joi - that isn't exactly it. I DID find some on ebay and bought a few so for now I'm ok, but next time I run out I'll try the ones you guys suggested. So weird how you get so dependent on something like mascara. It's my crack.

I'm no aficionado of fine mascaras, in fact, now that I think about it I think I've used the same kind since middle school- the Maybelline stuff in the green and pink bottle. Anyway, I see you've already found some, but if you ever need a back-up...
