It’s almost 7 A.M., and I…
…Realized this blog has nearly been on a winter long hiatus, and that simply will not do.
Still alive! Just got rather sidetracked with all the joys of Instagram and flu season!
Also, in other news: C’est Bon will also be undergoing a little makeover, as I have come to the conclusion the post categories might be a little bit confusing for the curious first time visitor.
And my lovely friend Sarah brought to mind a question I often get asked, but have basically never addressed (easily sidetracked):
Ashley, what do you use on your lashes to make them so long and voluminous?!
In all honesty, I already have pretty long, and decently thick lashes. The biggest issue I have is with color, since my natural lashes grow in both blonde and brunette. Bane of my existence! But with all that having been said…
Yves Saint-Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking Mascara is what I use, and am totally in love with. For a little extra va-voom, I first apply a layer of Dior Diorshow Mascara on before the Yves Saint-Laurent.
My natural lashes; please kindly ignore the smeared residue of my Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Pencil (in Delinquent, which is lovely)!
Only Yves Saint-Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking Mascara has been applied here (which you can see is simply fantastic at what it does).
Here I am wearing Yves Saint-Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking Mascara layered over Dior Diorshow Mascara for just a little extra plushness and volume.
As you can see, the combination of the two mascaras is pretty amazing. The only issue I find, is that Diorshow mascara can flake a lot, which you can see in the form of the little black speckles along my lower eyelid.
I am really quite terrible at applying false lashes (will not even try and skirt around the issue). Not sure if it’s simply due to my particular eye shape, or if I just lack some sort of basic motor skill that half the female population in the North America alone seems to be able to utilize, easy breezy!
A few closing sentiments:
I have not forgotten about my “Monthly Purchases” posts, but I have been terrible about seeing them through. I have about 3 months worth of those post in the works (I shop a lot, ladies – I need therapy for my retail therapy), so do be on the lookout for those!
I hope you all have been staying warm, and avoiding the dreaded wintertime influenza!
Until next time beauties,
