Is It Better Than Sex? #toofaced

IMG_1832 IMG_1833

I have loved the Too Faced line for a long time. This brand is an example of how much product packaging influences people. I am always drawn to the packaging first and the product second when it comes to Too Faced. It really pulls my girl heart strings, so I honestly don’t know why it took me so long to try this stuff. I received a few samples while I had eyelash extensions so I wasn’t able to really try it. Once I made the decision to stop getting extensions I was on the hunt for a mascara. I went back to my old favorite by Hard Candy, but it didn’t have the same magic. I think they may have changed the formula of the Hard Candy Volume mascara because I used to LOVE it and the last tube I tried was disappointing. So on I went in search of a new mascara. I ended up having problems keeping my lashes curled. It seemed like anytime I curled my lashes and then added mascara they would fall flat. No amount of curling was helping them stay up, even products like the Benefit Rollerlash didn’t work. I never used to have any issues with keeping my lashes curled so this was new territory. There is a super talented makeup artist called Amrezy and she mentioned that this was her favorite mascara. This is when I finally decided to go out and give it a try, and I’ve been loving it. The packaging it so cute and sturdy. I think it has an aluminum outer so that gives it some weight. The brush doesn’t look ‘user friendly’ but it is. I was using the L’Oreal Voluminous and I think it’s good……..but I always thought it was a tad too wet. I had to be careful applying it or my lashes would clump. I’ve been using the Better Than Sex mascara for about a week now and I really like it. Some days after I apply it my curl goes flat, but I can easily re-curl my lashes and it actually holds. The only CON I have is that it does flake a little bit. I imagine that the older the tube gets the more the formula will flake……I just don’t know how long a tube will last yet. Right now I only notice 3-4 small flakes at the end of the day so it’s pretty easy to just wipe away.

So now the big question – “Is it better than sex?”. Well I have to say NO of course not, at least to me haha.

ER With Audrey

Last night we were in the ER until after midnight. Audrey was having some trouble breathing so I decided to take her in. I knew something was off the whole day and by the afternoon she had gotten worse. I wasn’t sure why she was having a hard time breathing but she had been sick with some sort of cold. It would have been nice to have family close by to help out :(. Tom was doing his own thing out of town so it’s been just me and her all weekend.  Once we arrived they brought us in within 5 minutes so that was nice. It’s pretty common for kids to have some sort of illness that causes breathing issues. RSV is one that is very common in young children, but that is not what she had. Either way I knew that the ER would be perfectly equipped to help her. I wasn’t anxious or scared, just stressed that I had to juggle everything by myself. Poor Baron was stuck inside all day. He was very happy to see us when we got home, I’m sure he was worried about us. I don’t like seeing my baby sad. She’s got such a fun personality and it was being extinguished. She was such a fighter. We had to restrain her multiple times in order to give her breathing treatments. After hours of waiting and treatments she started to improve. Luckily I had a purse full of fun makeup to play with while Audrey slept. I may be in the hospital all night but I’m gonna look fresh lol!
