Oops!- Why’d I buy that?

Ever look in your Make Up bag and see products you never use? I know I do! Oops! Why’d I buy that?!

image

e.l.f. blush – I bought this thinking I could use it as a contour shade. Then I bought my Wet n Wild MegaGlo pallet. Oops.

Maybelline Mascara – Bought this cause it was on sale. I like it, but it’s not my The Falsies and it’s not waterproof! (Critical for keeping curl to my sad little lashes.) Oops!

NYX CC Concealer- It looked so purdy. My YouTubers/ Instagramers use it. I can’t figure it out. I know what you are SUPPOSED to do… I just can’t make it work for me! Oops.

L’ORÉAL eyeshadow- Colour riche= rich color… false promises en français. Ferme la bouche, L’ORÉAL! Your color payout sucks! Oops!

L.A. COLORS pencil- It’s pretty, it’s cheap. Good color… but instead of just a pretty shimmer, they slammed glitter in there! Glitter and contacts are not a match made in heaven. Oops!

e.l.f. HD Undereye setting powder- I just felt the claims of this product fell flat. I use a regular powder and I feel it brightens and smoothes much better. Oops.

Younique lip stain- This is hands down my biggest blunder. $27.00 down the toliet for this crap. It looked nice at the party, but after a couple of uses I noticed it was super drying and it wore off unevenly and it made it look terrible! Like a kid after a cherry popsicle! There were clear lines between intense color and my nude lip. Crap, I say! Crap, crap, crap! Don’t waste your money!

What say you, Lovelies? Have YOU tried any of these? Let me know below or email me!

And I cried…

Woke up from the most vivid dream I’ve had in a while. In my dream, I screamed and yelled and cried at Butthead. I woke rather upset. As I pondered this, he poked his head into our bedroom to see if I was awake.

My face must have betrayed my thoughts, as he immediately asked what was wrong. Feeling silly, I told him. It was just a dream… I needed to shake it off. However, instead of assuring me that the dream was wholly preposterous… he began a statement that began, “In the interest of full disclosure…” and finished it with what felt like a gut punch.

And I cried. Big, sopping tears. Crinkled face, ugly cry. Bare your soul cry. Face your fears cry. Made him cry, cry.

We spent the rest of the day in bed, talking while wrapped in each others arms. There was more crying. But there was also laughter, kisses and more “I love you”s than had been said in a long time. Something that could have tore us apart just brought us closer together.

For the first time in a long time we actually listened to each other. We forgot ourselves and asked what did the other need? It was a remodel. A tidying. The earth may have shook, but our foundation is strong.

I could have been angry… shielded my hurt with harsh words. I chose to be raw. Be real… show my hurt and see my faults too. In turn, my love has grown stronger and wiser. I don’t regret crying.
