My eyes water a lot, and my eyelids are a bit oily. So I've had a really hard time finding a mascara that worked well for me. I've been using L'oreal Voluminous Waterproof mascara for years and years. It was the best formula that I'd tried so far, but it had a tendency to smudge. If I didn't keep an eye on things, by the end of the day I'd look like a raccoon!
For the past few days, I've been trying L'Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes mascara. And I must tell you - I'm thoroughly impressed!
- Does not smudge. Period.
- Removes with soap & water - no special mascara remover needed
- Lengthens lashes dramatically
- A good value at $10.99, compared to high-end department store brands
- Takes longer to apply than regular mascara - It's a two step process. First you apply a white primer coat and then the mascara.
- The wand is awkward. It's much thicker than most mascara wands so it takes a little time to get used to it.
- Does not thicken lashes as well as L'Oreal's Voluminous Mascara.
- Lashes tend to stick together in "spikes" so you need a good lash comb / separator. (A dry mascara brush works great; you can get one for $1.00 from EyesLipsFace.)

Now that I'm selling through Etsy, I have the space once again for tutorials! You can see them by clicking on the "Tutorials" button on the left side of the screen. So far I have tutes about making a basic necklace or bracelet, how to use crimping pliers, and bead stringing materials. I also plan to add the content from the tumbler tute posted a few weeks ago on my blog.
I enjoy creating tutorials; it's that "teacher" in me coming out. What other tutorial suggestions do you have?

He is well known for saying exactly what he thinks and has earned the nickname "High Priest of the Church of the Painful Truth." He doesn't hesitate to call a spade a spade. He is a Libertarian and an ardent critic of big government, government waste and abuse, and lazy people wanting handouts from the government. He also has a particular distaste for those of us who are evangelical Christians, creationists, and pro-lifers, but that's OK. Nobody's perfect. :)
Congratulations, Neal! Sometimes I like you, and sometimes you drive me nuts. But whenever I get to listen to you (which isn't too often) you're always entertaining. And thank you for all your efforts on behalf of the Fair Tax - which in my humble opinion is the solution for nearly ALL of this country's problems.

Here's a link to the listing on Etsy where you can see more pictures.
I love this bracelet and will be really sad when someone buys it. But hey, I'll get over it! :)
