Look into my eyes.....
Today I am going to focus on my eyes...I know there are probably bigger items that I could focus on, but I want to talk about eyeliner and mascara today. This was the sleeper hit for me. I have always been a mini-brush mascara user. I have used other kinds but I really love the mini-brush. Whenever I try to use any other brand I see that big huge wand coming at me and I instantly get it all over myself!
I bought the pink tube once, I don't even remember the name, but everyone raves about it. I hated it! I used it for vacation only, and finally I just tossed it. The brush was HUGE and it was clumpy. I realize everyone loves different things, so that was just me.
Then as I was buying my initial products to use from Arbonne I decided to throw in some mascara. I don't know why, I didn't really want to stray from my mini-brush. I threw in some eyeliner as well. I had a bunch of credits where if I didn't use them I would lose them, so what the heck!
The eyeliner is almost exactly the same as the eyeliner I currently use! SCORE! Why change then, you ask? Well, for starters, there is ONE MAJOR difference in the 2 eyeliners. The new one isn't filled with chemicals! It does not have any animal parts in it - I'm sorry, I just still cannot get over this. I am going to make a whole post about that next! It glides on just as smooth, if not smoother than my current eyeliner. Sold!
Back to the eyeliner...But it's so expensive you say. Let's take a look. The eyeliner I purchased is 23.00 retail. I do not pay retail for anything - ever! Neither should you! More on that later too! I get 35% off of this eyeliner. Bringing me to 14.95. Like I said above, I had credits to use, so I think by the time I was finished it cost me 5.00. The eyeliner I use is from any drugstore. I checked Target and it was 4.50, minus my 5% for having a redcard it is 4.27. Why do I always end up paying 8.00 when I am desperate for it?? So it is a 10.00 difference. But this little notice that I just saw on the website will make me pay the extra 10.00:
"WARNING: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm."
Wait, what?? I am finished having kids, but really? I can still get cancer! I see this from time to time and have always glanced over it. Now I am suddenly aware (@_@)
Now to the mascara. I was hesitant as I have stated before. For starters, the brush isn't as big as I thought it was going to be - whew! But it isn't a mini brush either. I tried it out and LOVED it!! First of all the smell - weird right? It has a nice smell. Not over-powering or perfumey, just a nice scent. Second, it goes on so smooth! My lashes looked very nice after. Third, you all know what I am going to say by now...At least I hope you know...IT ISN'T FILLED WITH CHEMICALS! Yay!
I don't wear eyeshadow, and I am not going to start now because I am an Arbonne Consultant, however, everyone I have talked to has loved it! So give it a try! You have 45 days to return it if you don't like it!
One more thing...Paying retail! Never, ever pay retail for Arbonne!
