Thursday Poll


I have a confession.  It's extremely difficult for me to say this, but I think it needs to be said.  Since December of 2008 I have been using Beauty Blogging Performance Enhancing Drug.  I know. This must come as a shock to you because, well let's face it, my blogging career isn't all that, but I have been using these Beauty Blogging Performance Enhancing Drugs in order to be as great as Christine from Tempalia, Karen from Makeup and Beauty Blog or the other Christine from 15 Minute Beauty Fanatic.  Alas, all my blog doping has only resulted in being in the middle of the pack, overlooked by certain readers and brands and under valued by various "how much is my website worth" web pages which are mostly fronts to send spam to the domain and owner.   It all started so innocently.  Some of the "bad girl" bloggers told me it would be fun, and everyone was doing it.  I gave into peer pressure and imbibed.  At first it was just once in a while, I would knock off a few posts and get all sorts of comments.  But then I think I became addicted to the comments more than the Beauty Blogging Performance Enhancing Drugs.  I was constantly refreshing my e-mail to see if new comments were coming in.  I was printing them out and wallpapering my house with the comments.  Every once in a while I would get a negative comment and it would be like my world had fallen apart.  I would sit in an unattractively lit room, applying lip gloss over and over until I had finished the tube.  You realize that for a beauty blogger to finish a tube of lip gloss is so momentous and unbelievable that it was a cause for celebration, right?  That is how I would try and "pick myself up" after a negative comment.  I would tweet about finishing a gloss and then bask in the number of favorite stars and RTs I would get.  Eventually, I started taking Beauty Blogging Performance Enhancing Drugs all the time.  It started to interfere with my daily life.  I found myself swatching everything within sight. From lipstick to sriracha sauce, my forearm wasn't safe any more.  Then I would blog into all hours of the night.  Most of my posts making no sense at all because I was delirious with this fake "power" that Beauty Blogging Performance Enhancing Drugs gave me.  I began to obsess about blogging about ALL THE THINGS! But that wasn't my rock bottom.  No.  My rock bottom was when Mr. Sith found me after a combination of a negative comment, lack of "likes" on a facebook post and no ♥'s on my latest Instagram pic, sitting in a room with flickering fluorescent lighting applying makeup.  I had wanted to finish 2 glosses, a lipstick and a blush in order to get my "kudos fix" on social media.  He found me covered, from head to toe, in a sticky, powdery, pink and gold shimmer mess.  He saved me.  He cleaned me up using my favorite Micellar Cleansing Water, brushed my hair with a natural boar bristle brush and tied it back with a no snag elastic.  He toned, moisturized and primed my face and told me that no matter how famous or infamous I would ever be, no Beauty Blogging Performance Enhancing Drug would ever give me the satisfaction I sought.  He was right.  I knew it long ago, but it had to take me this long to admit it.  I CAN blog without Beauty Blogging Performance Enhancing Drugs.  I CAN get "likes" on Facebook and re-pins on Pinterest without Beauty Blogging Performance Enhancing Drugs.  I know I can, and I know I will be a valuable and informative beauty blogger no matter what happens. So it is today, with unsteady yet freshly shaved and moisturized legs, I stand tall and vow never to use Beauty Blogging Performance Enhancing Drugs ever again.
On To The Poll!

1.  Lip Of The Day? - Le Metier de Beaute lip gloss in Cebu. My favorite pinkygoldshimmer awesomeness!

2. When Lance Armstrong FINALLY admitted he had used performance enhancing drugs to win 7 Tour de France competitions were you surprised? - I was surprised he finally admitted it, but not surprised that he took them.

3.  What is your favorite lipstick or lip gloss color and what color do you own the most of? - My favorite is RED!  I love red.  But I actually think I own more pink glosses than anything else, but red lipstick is a very close second.

4.  Is your impression of Lance Armstrong better, worse, or unchanged since he finally confessed to using performance enhancing drugs? - A bit worse.  There was always that benefit of the doubt I was giving him, but now that he admits it, he's pretty low in my eyes.

5.  What is your favorite mascara for making your lashes look really tick and really long? And do you use more than one mascara? - I would have to say that I really like the Josie Maran GOGO Instant Natural Volume Argan Mascara, but I am using a sample of Tarte Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara and I am really liking it very much! I might make a change.

  1. "You realize that for a beauty blogger to finish a tube of lip gloss is so momentous and unbelievable that it was a cause for celebration, right? " I have yet to finish one of my 200 or so.

    1. Lip Of The Day? - Le Metier Summerland gloss

    2. When Lance Armstrong FINALLY admitted he had used performance enhancing drugs to win 7 Tour de France competitions were you surprised? -NO, not really but I wanted to believe he was being honest.

    3. What is your favorite lipstick or lip gloss color and what color do you own the most of? - Rosy Nude color...Nude. I also like saying nude...a lot!

    4. Is your impression of Lance Armstrong better, worse, or unchanged since he finally confessed to using performance enhancing drugs? I'm disappointed in him. I ran ING New York Marathon for his charity in 2007 and met him and thought the world of him. I remember he grabbed my finishers medal and said something I don't remember because I was paralyzed by his eyes and my plan was to jump on him and kiss him but I froze lol. It's hard to see someone you looked up to and know they lied, but he is human and we all make mistakes.

    5. What is your favorite mascara for making your lashes look really tick and really long? And do you use more than one mascara? - I love Mally's mascara, but I always layer it with something else from Estee Lauder or Lancome. I have too may mascara's!

  2. 1. Lip Of The Day? - Revlon Lip Butter in Candy Apple, perfect red for dry lips day

    2. When Lance Armstrong FINALLY admitted he had used performance enhancing drugs to win 7 Tour de France competitions were you surprised? - No, from my European point of you it's very American to confess publicly and ask for forgiveness. I'd honestly tend to say he would do it to get a new positive image even if he didn't do anything.

    3. What is your favorite lipstick or lip gloss color and what color do you own the most of? - Fuchsia FTW

    4. Is your impression of Lance Armstrong better, worse, or unchanged since he finally confessed to using performance enhancing drugs? - I don't care. And I think it's very hypocritical to put all the blame on one person when this sport is obviously corrupted on ALL levels because the media demands from the athletes that they offer more spectacular prestations. The human bodies has limits, if you want to push them, at some point you implicitely ask people to find alternative ways to do it. It's a bit disgusting, frankly.

    5. What is your favorite mascara for making your lashes look really tick and really long? And do you use more than one mascara? - It is YSL Faux-Cils, always and forever.

  3. 1. LotD? Revlon Really Red. Gorgeous, matte red. I hated wearing it today, because it's exam week and I should be wearing sweats and lip balm. But today was speech, and apparently I needed to dress up. Which I resent.

    2. Lance Armstrong? No, I was not surprised. You don't go from middle of the pack to winning the Tour de France.

    3. Favorite? My favorite colors are peachy-corals, but somehow I accumulated a ton of reds.

    4. Drugs? I don't care that he was doping, but I do really care that he let tons of people look up to him as a hero and role model.

    5. Mascara? Benefit they're real mascara and pretty much any maybelline mascara. I like to use multiple mascaras.

  4. 1. Lip Of The Day? - Guerlain Bois de Santal pencil with Armani gloss in 502.

    2. When Lance Armstrong FINALLY admitted he had used performance enhancing drugs to win 7 Tour de France competitions were you surprised? - Not in the least.

    3. What is your favorite lipstick or lip gloss color and what color do you own the most of? - Soft roses or coral tinged pinks seem to dominate my stash.

    4. Is your impression of Lance Armstrong better, worse, or unchanged since he finally confessed to using performance enhancing drugs? - It's unchanged because I always suspected he used drugs. In our culture of instant gratification and easy fixes, performance enhancing drugs are rampant in sports.

    5. What is your favorite mascara for making your lashes look really thick and really long? And do you use more than one mascara? - Armani Eyes to Kill when I want that false lash look. My day-to-day reality is Guerlian Noir G

    4. Is your impression of Lance Armstrong better, worse, or unchanged since he finally confessed to using performance enhancing drugs? - I pretty much stopped liking him when he dumped Sheryl Crow, now I think he's just a douchebag.

    5. What is your favorite mascara for making your lashes look really tick and really long? And do you use more than one mascara? - I am Too Lazy to use more than one mascara. I am still obsessed with Kiss Me Heroine Make Volume & Curl, but I wish I could find one I didn't have to buy on ebay.

  6. 1. Lip Of The Day? -Fireberry Clinique lip gloss

    2. When Lance Armstrong FINALLY admitted he had used performance enhancing drugs to win 7 Tour de France competitions were you surprised? No, just surprised it took him this long to admit it. We knew he had some honesty issues based on his personal life in the news from long ago.

    3. What is your favorite lipstick or lip gloss color and what color do you own the most of? love mauves and berries

    4. Is your impression of Lance Armstrong better, worse, or unchanged since he finally confessed to using performance enhancing drugs?
    A bit worse only since I think he didn't seem contrite for anything except the effect on his Livestrong foundation.

    5. What is your favorite mascara for making your lashes look really thick and really long? And do you use more than one mascara? -I love Revlon Lash Fantasy, which has the lash primer on one end and mascara on the other. I like to use the primer with other favorite mascaras, like Clinique High Lengths or Lash Doubling mascaras. Really wanting to try other primers or Fibres, like Essence lash fibres.

  7. 1. Lip Of The Day? - MAC Energy Lipglass

    2. When Lance Armstrong FINALLY admitted he had used performance enhancing drugs to win 7 Tour de France competitions were you surprised? - I think we all wanted to believe he was clean but for so many years people have said that everyone was doping...so, no.

    3. What is your favorite lipstick or lip gloss color and what color do you own the most of? - My favorite *at the moment* is pinky-fuchsia but my favorite of all time is red and brick red.

    4. Is your impression of Lance Armstrong better, worse, or unchanged since he finally confessed to using performance enhancing drugs? - I can't believe it took so long to figure this out, honestly. I can't blame him for hiding it. Would YOU admit to something like that? I feel bad for his kids more than anything.

    5. What is your favorite mascara for making your lashes look really tick and really long? And do you use more than one mascara? - I don't really use mascara unless it is a 'tube' mascara (meaning it makes tubes over your lashes using a primer) because of my horrible eye allergies. I can handle eyeshadow as long as it doesn't get into my eyes and eye liner as long as it is not wet but mascara is the worst :(

  9. 1. Lip Of The Day? - Right now it's the Dior Lip Glow but I might change it up later after lunch.

    2. When Lance Armstrong FINALLY admitted he had used performance enhancing drugs to win 7 Tour de France competitions were you surprised? - I feel the same way you did...surprised that he admitted it after saying that he didn't do it for so long but not surprised that he did it.

    3. What is your favorite lipstick or lip gloss color and what color do you own the most of? - My favorite are pinky/mauvey/rosey colors which are a MLBB for me, I probably own the most of that or some other shade of pink.

    4. Is your impression of Lance Armstrong better, worse, or unchanged since he finally confessed to using performance enhancing drugs? - Also same as you here.

    5. What is your favorite mascara for making your lashes look really thick and really long? And do you use more than one mascara? - I usually just go for length/color but actually today I used 2 mascaras to get some volume as well as length. The new L'oreal Telescopic and Maybelline Rocket mascaras. The Rocket one is actually better in the non-waterproof formula volume-wise but I don't like mixing waterproof and non-waterproof formulas so I'll have to wait until I pick up the non-waterproof Telescopic to try that out, but I think it will be even better.

    1. How weird!

      I have neer used Telescopic. Nor have I used The Rocket. Well, I have been thinking of picking up The Rocket, based on some reviews. Tonight while I was beauty blog surfing I stumbled upon a Telescopic review. The length it gave her was pretty impressive! My first thought was I've gotta get that, and do a combo with The Rocket!
      I was just a little bummed because how on earth would I know if that's a good idea considering I'd doubtfully find a review of them TOGETHER.

      Low and behold!

      Thank you for unknowingly answering my question! Now I'm excited! Lol!

  10. 1. Mark. Glow Baby Glow in Honey

    2. Well, not really. But I always like to believe the best in everyone so I guess I was hoping it was all a lie.

    3. Most shades of pink (as long as it isn't too bright).

    4. I'm kind of disappointed in him. I didn't really follow his career or anything but I saw him on Oprah once and he seemed like such a down to earth good guy. Its kind of sad that he's fallen as far as he has.

    5. YSL Effet Faux Cils Shocking. Unfortunately I can't really afford to buy it that often. I don't layer my mascaras. My lashes are pretty long and full naturally so I just need a little extra oomph.

    ReplyDelete
  11. 1. Lip Of The Day? - YSL Gloss Volupte in red - 91BA? Delicious and at the very end of the tupe - OMG I may have used an entire lipgloss. Of course I've had it for 2 years.... Love it and I don't think it is made any longer. Must find replacement and also figure out how to dig the last bits out of the tube.

    2. When Lance Armstrong FINALLY admitted he had used performance enhancing drugs to win 7 Tour de France competitions were you surprised? - Suprised he finally admitted it but not suprised as the evidence against him continued to mount.

    3. What is your favorite lipstick or lip gloss color and what color do you own the most of? - My favorite is pink, and I have the most gloss in pink. I have a really difficult time finding red gloss or lipstick that works w/ my coloring.

    4. Is your impression of Lance Armstrong better, worse, or unchanged since he finally confessed to using performance enhancing drugs? Worse- because he only is doing it under duress and to hope to avoid prosecution and because now he is facing law suits. I also think he is going to throw a lot of other people under the bus on his way down. He sucks. I used to think highly of him and now I don't want to hear another word about him ever.

    5. What is your favorite mascara for making your lashes look really tick and really long? And do you use more than one mascara? - My favorite is Max Factor 2000 Calorie mascara, which is no longer available in the US - and whatever they are selling in Europe is NOT the same - the brush changed and the forumla may have changed and it is SO disappointing. My second favorite is the mascara from Bare Minerals - I think the closest dup I've found. However, I have tons of mascara samples and I use whatever and I have thin little wimpy lashes pretty much no matter what.

  12. I read you every day!!! but only once and a while leave comments on certain products you review .... I love you thursday poll! :)
    1. Lip Of The Day? Shiseido #701
    2. When Lance Armstrong FINALLY admitted he had used performance enhancing drugs to win 7 Tour de France competitions were you surprised? yes and no ... cycling is where they have the most problem with drugs so if you win 7 title in a row ..... the federation should be scare now that the Olympics committee what to remove cycling from the games! :0
    3. What is your favorite lipstick or lip gloss color and what color do you own the most of? I have a lot of plums (the colour of my lips) but two years ago I really tried to branch out and I have to say pink, red and coral are really close.
    4. Is your impression of Lance Armstrong better, worse, or unchanged since he finally confessed to using performance enhancing drugs? Worst I have a colleague who was pro cyclist for 4 years in Swiss and know personally some tour de france winner (not Lance) and told me some gossip about Lance, how rude he is, egocentric etc , I think he need this fall he was asking for it!
    5. What is your favorite mascara for making your lashes look really tick and really long? And do you use more than one mascara? les 2 Guerlain (length ) , I have les 2 guerlain and one from maybelline for day to day.

  13. NNNooooo!!! I can't believe you have also fallen into the BBPED crowd. I weep...Sniff Sniff. However- i will stand beside you wearing my cheap eye liner and mascara crying my eyes out, black rivers of product flowing down my cheeks, as you take it one day at a time.

    OMG I needed that laugh- thank you!

    1- QTICA Intense lip repair balm- darn this winter

    2- No as I had just read an article featuring information from the Andreu's. Sickened and shocked. I am so naive.

    3- So embarrassed to admit this but I have only become rabidly obsessed with makeup in the last 6 months and am still learning about so many brands. So my fave right now is a safe one- Mac in Syrup. I wear rose and plum shades mostly as they are MLBB. Which I had to google only in Nov to find out what that meant. hee hee. I am OBSESSED with finding Lipstick Queen's Jean Queen (can't find in Canada so far) as apparently it will suit my lips as well. Once I get it I will wear it a couple times and toss it in a drawer to focus on my next hard to find product.

    4- Worse- so very very worse. It seems to be driven by other motives. Such a big production to 'admit' the truth. Plus we still have to watch to find out how much he actually admits. I am sickened by him. I am pretty gullible and tend to believe the best in people so I had held out hope until recently that his 'hero' status was not in vain

    5- I love layering mascara and one that works like magic on me but I never read about is Bourjois volume Clubbing Mascara then I top it with one for length like Benefit's They are real.

    Keep Calm and Say Clean ;)

  14. 1. Au natural, been feeling icky and haven't wanted to do any kind of make up.

    2. A little. I guess I had hoped he was above all that.

    3. Red. I have all kinds of red lipsticks and stains and glosses. I love red.

    4. Definitely worse.

    5. Bare Minerals Flawless Definition for everyday use, Maybelline Falsies for going out on the town and when I can get a sample Guerlain Noir G. Though I may bite when my bonus comes in.

  15. 1. YSL Glossy Stain Corail Aquatique

    2. I've no opinion, don't really care.

    3. I own tons of pinky corals, I guess I'm always worried my teeth aren't white enough to go too dark *shakes fist at coffee mug*

    4. Unchanged.


    5. I love Lorac's special effects mascara! Not sure if it's the primer that gives it that little oomph but it really makes them look long and non-clumpy.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Your confession is ingenious.

    1. Lip Of The Day? - Pantone Tangerine Tango. I'm determined to finish it (although it may take a lifetime)

    2. Did Lance Armstrong surprise me? In this day and age, not really.

    3. Favorite lipstick/gloss color? Pink

    4. I'm quite disappointed in Lance's confession, especially if the rumors are true that he is only doing it so that he can compete again. I think that's disgusting.

    5. Favorite mascara? Benefit Bad Gal

  17. 1. Lip Of The Day?
    Fasio Melting Glossy Rouge RD441 - using up the last bits!

    2. When Lance Armstrong FINALLY admitted he had used performance enhancing drugs to win 7 Tour de France competitions were you surprised?
    I'm with you, I was surprised he finally admitted it. A part of me was hoping.

    3. What is your favorite lipstick or lip gloss color and what color do you own the most of?
    I like them all, as long as they look good on me; I have a lot of clear/sheer ones - just end up with them somehow.

    4. Is your impression of Lance Armstrong better, worse, or unchanged since he finally confessed to using performance enhancing drugs?
    Again, totally with you. I had a bit of doubt/hope until he confessed. I think it's terrible - perhaps because of the whole image. I wonder why I don't care as much about similar abuses in MLB, etc.

    5. What is your favorite mascara for making your lashes look really tick and really long? And do you use more than one mascara?
    I'm always testing mascaras. Currently like Heroine Make Long and Curl, but it does smudge/flake a tiny bit.

  18. Elvira, be careful. One of these days you might get sued for damage. (in other words: You're too funny. Ow ow ow my sides ='D )

    1. Lip Of The Day?
    Epically Epic lip balm in Cantaloupe -- No make-up day makes me sad, but sometimes laziness needs to happen.

    2. When Lance Armstrong FINALLY admitted he had used performance enhancing drugs to win 7 Tour de France competitions were you surprised?
    To be honest, I didn't even know who he was. Never cared for athletes or celebrities in general. But no, I was not really surprised that yet another generally respected person got caught cheating, no.

    3. What is your favorite lipstick or lip gloss color and what color do you own the most of?
    Reds! I love everything red and shades with red undertones. I find they look really flattering on me. <3

    4. Is your impression of Lance Armstrong better, worse, or unchanged since he finally confessed to using performance enhancing drugs?
    Again, no idea.

    5. What is your favorite mascara for making your lashes look really tick and really long? And do you use more than one mascara?
    I'm currently using Hourglass Film Noir with a generic TKB lash primer. I'm not too picky with my mascaras as long as they don't smudge or flake, really.

  19. 1. Lip Of The Day? - Neutrogena Lip Moisturizer SPF15 -Because I'm spending the day in the barn.

    2. When Lance Armstrong FINALLY admitted he had used performance enhancing drugs to win 7 Tour de France competitions were you surprised? - Not really.

    3. What is your favorite lipstick or lip gloss color and what color do you own the most of? - For day rosy pinks. For going out at night red all the way!

    4. Is your impression of Lance Armstrong better, worse, or unchanged since he finally confessed to using performance enhancing drugs? - Worse.

    5. What is your favorite mascara for making your lashes look really tick and really long? And do you use more than one mascara? - Diorshow

    ReplyDelete
  20. 1. Lip Of The Day? - MAC Creme Cup, I was feeling like a whole lot of brown and nudes on my face today. Plus I had work and they don't like exciting lip colours :(

    2. When Lance Armstrong FINALLY admitted he had used performance enhancing drugs to win 7 Tour de France competitions were you surprised? - not really, I think everyone at that time was using them. Or at least the majority. I just hope that cycling is slowly learning it's lessons and becoming a clean sport.

    3. What is your favorite lipstick or lip gloss color and what color do you own the most of? - MAC New York Apple. It's just perfect in my opinion. Though I mainly own pinks, so... I should probably have chosen a pink lipstick!

    4. Is your impression of Lance Armstrong better, worse, or unchanged since he finally confessed to using performance enhancing drugs? - worse really. It's horrible when someone has lied for so long to discover that they had been. I just have so little respect for that.

    5. What is your favorite mascara for making your lashes look really tick and really long? And do you use more than one mascara? - I am currently really enjoying Smashbox's hyperlash. It certainly gives my lashes oomph and stays put nicely. I don't really try many different mascara. I love max factor's false lash effect mascara so apart from samples until I find something incredible I probably won't be buying any different ones!

    Adored this post :) xo

  22. 1. Lip Of The Day?

    Revlon Super Lustrous L/S in Raspberry Bite
    Holy Crap, I forgot how lovely this lippie is!

    Topped with a pinch of Burt's Bees Super Glossy Natural Lip Shine in Sweet Pink in the center. For a plumping illusion.

    2. When Lance Armstrong FINALLY admitted he had used performance enhancing drugs to win 7 Tour de France competitions were you surprised? -

    I guess I'm surprised he finally decided to own up to it. Then again, the sh!t really did hit the fan, and it had become increasingly more obvious to the point that he really couldn't lie anymore.

    3. What is your favorite lipstick or lip gloss color and what color do you own the most of? -

    My fave? That's hard. For many years if I were going to wear any color, I would rock orange/blue based BRIGHT red lips exclusively.

    However, I have since branched out! I get the most compliments when I wear a wine/burgundy/oxblood shade. Compliments are my fave, therefor deep purple/reds are my fave!

    The majority of my lippies would likely fall somewhere in the 'pink' family. Maybe nude...
    Probably a cross between the two.
    Reds would be a close second.

    4. Is your impression of Lance Armstrong better, worse, or unchanged since he finally confessed to using performance enhancing drugs?

    I sort of assumed something fishy was at play all along. As a fellow (recovering) drug addict, I would like to say I forgive him, because I know from experience how shameful drug abuse can be, however, I felt no true remorse from him. I don't believe he would be apologizing, let alone admitting, any wrong doing if it weren't for the fact that he was "found out". Actions speak volumes. I had to prove to those around me that I honestly wanted to change. The only way I could do that was by showing them. Every day. So for now, my opinion on him is unchanged. It would be hypocritical of me to judge him for the choices he's made, but I also thinks he needs to take an honest look at who he is, what he's done, and what he's gonna do about it before I can fully empthize.

    5. What is your favorite mascara for making your lashes look really tick and really long? And do you use more than one mascara? -

    For thick AND long lashes, I curl 'em, prime them with a primer by Estée Lauder, then load on Smashbox Full Exposure.

    My day to day combo is to curl & prime. Then use a coat of CG Lashblast Length, then another of CG Lashblast Clump Crusher. This gives me volume and length, but not to the extent that they look "false". To me, it looks like I've been blessed with beautiful lashes, and used some regular old mascara... when in fact, its the other way around! Lol!!

  23. Why did this just now show up on my Bloglovin' feed? I'm confused.

    1. Lip Of The Night? - Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Hermetic, I'm all dramaticed up because I'm going out in a bit.

    2. When Lance Armstrong FINALLY admitted he had used performance enhancing drugs to win 7 Tour de France competitions were you surprised? - Nope. I had hoped he hadn't, because I always hope for the best, but I also recognize the worst is possible.

    3. What is your favorite lipstick or lip gloss color and what color do you own the most of? - Translucent roses and dark nude pinks are what I have the most of, because up until recently, I just did "my lips, but better." Those are probably still my favorite, although red and burgundy are catching up.

    4. Is your impression of Lance Armstrong better, worse, or unchanged since he finally confessed to using performance enhancing drugs? Yes, it's scummy to go that long without confessing. We all make mistakes, but he didn't feel guilty enough to own up until he had to.

    5. What is your favorite mascara for making your lashes look really tick and really long? And do you use more than one mascara? - My favorite it Tarte's Gifted, right now. For whatever reason, it works better than Lights, Camera, Lashes. I'm also loving the new Saucebox Cosmetics mascara I got with my last order (it's not for sale yet) because it DOES NOT GIVE ME CRUNCHY LASHES. It lengthens and thickens, but they're still smooth as silk. And they still hold a curl. It doesn't last as long as Gifted, but it still lasts for 8+ hours without needing a touch-up. I always comb out my lashes after applying mascara, and I barely need to do that at all with Saucebox.
