Lashes and Nails

Does anyone else have this problem?  It's midday and I look in the mirror to see what looks like a drug addict or someone in desperate need of sleep starring back at me. It is not a junkie or an insomniac in the reflection, it is just me. I can understand my mascara running after a hard night of partying, but why is it that I am left with raccoon eyes after only three hours of applying my eye make-up? Because of this problem, along with itsy eyelashes, I am constantly looking for that miracle mascara. I have tried everything from Chanel to Cover Girl and I have liked the results of some, but I can't say that I have a mascara that I love. Sad, isn't it?
 When my sister-in-law Christy was in town, I was venting to her about my under eye debris and a month later darling Christy sent me Sephora's Lash Stash including eleven different brands of mascara, eyelash primer, and a pair of false lashes! I am still finishing the tube of mascara I had when I received my b-day package, but I can't wait to put each of these mascaras to the test. I also plan on creating graphs and charts on the performance of each mascara, because collecting data is fun way to incorporate education in my beauty routine. I'll let you know the results when I'm done, but that may be a while because I keep mascara forever ( I know that's bad) and I have eleven to go thru.

As far as my nails go, I decided to get the Sensationail starter kit because I love manicures, but hate paying $50.00 for gel manicures. I have used it once and I am pretty pleased with the results. My manicure lasted a solid week which is good for me, because once I get the slightest chip, I will go crazy and peel the rest of the polish off. Next time, I will add another coat of color and they should survive longer. Hooray for new nail technology!
