Eyes for sale.

21 Jan


As some might say, I sold out for free stuff. Welcome to the recession!

I am happily participating in what I call the other side.

As an entry-level communications professional, learning much about social media and about pitching to bloggers, I was happy to be on the receiving end of a pitch to have a better idea what it all really means!

As for my title, nobody is selling eyes, only mascara, which can make it look like you have new eyes!beautytubes_packshot_brush1

I was offered a chance to sample the L’Oréal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara which, if you know me well, is quite appropriate as I have ridiculously long lashes and put a lot of stock in my mascara. Growing up as a dancer, and having done some modeling, I’ve worn my share of makeup!

I like how it goes on, and I am refining my technique as the days go by. It also fares well through a full day of work, and also a nap.

Oh, and this mascara is AWESOME to remove. I’m notoriously bad about taking my mascara off with eye makeup remover and usually just do it in the shower, which means I come out with black zombie eyes! This stuff is certainly the easiest to remove of any mascaras I have previously used and I don’t have to fear terrifying small children. [Or my boyfriend’s usual reaction, yelling “WHOA! FRIGHT NIGHT!”]

I haven’t much else to say other than watch my video. [please] I think it is more representative of my experience! I tried the mascara for the first time in front of the camera so that I could share my genuine reaction.

I’d like to get some girlfriends to try it and put some pics up to supplement this. We’ll see…
