Makeup? Who the hell has time to put on a full face of makeup when you have a 4 year old, 2 year old and 4 month old…not this Chic Mamma that’s for sure haha! I’ve always been a pretty plain and simple kind a girl, especially when it comes to make up…less is more right? I stick with my concelear to hide my Chic Mamma dark circles, brush on some bronzer to add some colour, throw some lipgloss on and of course we can’t forget the MASCARA!
Mascara is probably my most fave item in my makeup bag. What a difference it can make to a look! You could look like complete crap with hair up in a messy bun, a tee and some jeans but the minute you put your mascara on you somehow transform yourself from hot mess Mamma to Chic I’m rockin’ this look Mamma haha.
I recently finished my tube of mascara and though, this might be a good opportunity to try out something new and I’m so glad I did! I called up my girl Natasha Kovar of Arbonne (ok honest to God she’s the MOST AMAZING ARBONNE consultant you will ever meet) and asked her about the Arbonne mascara (It’s A Long Story) I keep hearing about. She gave me the run down and I placed my order.
The minute it came, I ran up to my bathroom (like a giddy school girl) and had to try it out. Amazing doesn’t even begin to describe it. It curls my lashes that love to poke straight out, adds length, doesn’t smudge, dries well, no flaking or raccoon eyes, separates and defines my lashes and DOESN’T clump them together making them look all gross (thanks to their fantastic wand). Apply a single coat for a more natural look (the look I always go for) or put two or three for a thicker and more dramatic look. It’s also water resistant which is great because anything water proof scares me (thanks but no thanks…not about all those chemicals so close to my eyes) plus it lasts all day long so you’re covered from morning to night with super easy removal. Take a look at my before and after pic and see for yourself…pretty awesome right?!
Since using it I’ve had so many compliments and some people have actually asked if I got extensions lol. I’m in LOVE! I used to spend so much money on designer brands that yes were great and I loved the results but they were missing a green and more natural side to them. It’s A Long Story has that (just like the rest of the Arbonne line) and it’s also vegan which a bonus for those of you who are big on that.
If you’re looking to try out something new give Natasha a call and order yourself a tube, you’ll be so happy you did. This way next time someone stops you to ask about your amazing lashes you too can tell them…It’s A Long Story 😉
While you’re at it be sure to get some of their FC5 Ultra-Hydrating Hand Cream too…best stuff out there! Oh and don’t forget to ask her how you can shop at 20% OFF as a preferred client 🙂
