Update on Me

Well, I haven’t been posting much lately.  As I mentioned in my most recent post, I’ve been having some medical problems.  My “condition” has limited my shopping ability (and budget – ARGH!), so I don’t have much to post about right now.  However, I’m still sharing deal alerts and beauty interest stories on my Facebook page, so hop on over there if you’re interested:  https://www.facebook.com/BridgettsBeautyBlog


Review: LORAC Pro Mascara

Well, I haven’t posted in a while.  I’ve been having some medical issues (nothing serious, just a condition that’s more problematic than it should have been – and still isn’t solved!) and have been in and out of the hospital all month.  Somehow, in the midst of my medical dilemma, I managed to sneak in a trip to Ulta for the too-hard-to-resist deal on LORAC’s “Pro Mascara” – on sale for just $10.  I figured since I’d pay that for a “drugstore brand” mascara, it was worth a try…

Pros:  Smudge-resistant.  Doesn’t “flake”.  Not difficult to remove.  Paraben-free.

Cons:  Unusual brush (takes some getting used to).  Not waterproof.  Can get “clumpy” kind of easily, if you’re not careful.

Summary:  Decent mascara, for $10, but I wouldn’t pay full price for it.  I definitely prefer Benefit’s “They’re Real” mascara over this one.  However, the Benefit mascara is harder to remove, so the LORAC is a good choice for “everyday” use.

Note:  As of the writing of this post, this product was still on sale at Ulta for $10.  If you’re interested, get it there!  (Also available:  Free LORAC deluxe-sized eyeshadow primer sample with $25 LORAC purchase.)
