December 16th - Hourglass
Well, after yesterday's admissions, guess who slept in all her makeup after rolling in late???? On one of the last weekends before Christmas I shouldn't think I'm alone in my tenderness this morning. The electrogel cleanser is about to go on to wash away all my sins, and Day 16's little guilded drawer yields a mini Hourglass mascara so I can do it all again straight after. Some people have very intense feelings about mascara, but I'm not really one of them - it's not the thing I tend to spend on and I just think they're all pretty OK. However, this is a very pleasing triangular shape, and I am in a slightly vulnerable state so it may well change my life.
A good mascara is like a good partner; rare as hell so you must cling to it and not share it with another person for fear of disease.
Lucky for me, I already have a great one. Mascara that is 😏. It’s Max Factor’s False Lash Effect Clump Defy, which does exactly what it says on the tin. In moments of decadence I have opted to try other, schmantzier brands - Dior, Clinique, Chanel, Benefit. None are as good. Prepare for the latter to get a reet going over on the reviews page soon.
This Hourglass one seems handy enough, & v good for an Easyjet flight as is tiny. It’s in the shade ‘ultra black’ = interesting. What’s blacker than black? The abyss? The card that comes with it says it delivers ‘endless length and volume’ which just cannot be true. Endless. So much jargon for such a small package.
Was in Liberty’s today and found myself eyeing brands not yet included. LIBERTY CALENDAR DRINKING GAME IN HONOUR OF @heidistephens. Have an early morning shot if the following come up:
