I'm IN LOVE ............

with my new EYELINER and MASCARA:))

I have been on the search forever for a GREAT waterproof eyeliner and mascara! 

Yes, I'm one of THOSE people that would always put my makeup on, leave the house, and by the time I got to work would look like a raccoon!!! NOTHING ever worked:( I had actually just given up on wearing most eye makeup ...

I went to Ulta on Monday, told them I needed the BEST eyeliner and mascara they had ... because I had a funeral to attend and already had issues with keeping eye makeup on anyway ... and then add TEARS to the mix ... and I may as well not wear any eye makeup at all to this funeral!

The sales lady suggested this "Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof eyeliner" ....
I was a little apprehensive but she ASSURED me there was NO WAY it would come off.  So I bought it ....with lots of doubts since it wasn't liquid ... but I bought it anyway ... and thought, here I go... again ..... **SIGH**

Then one of the mascaras she recommended was the "Cannonball Ultra Waterproof Mascara by Urban Decay ...."

She EVEN said they advertise that you can go swimming in the OCEAN with this mascara... and it won't come off!  SAY WHAT?? We are talking about the OCEAN people!!  I thought to myself "Yeah, right, they will say ANYTHING these days to make a sale ..." but decided to go ahead and give it a try anyway.
Let me just say ... if you are like me and have spent BOO-COOS (is that even a word?) of $$$ over the years trying to find something that works ... I have FOUND your solution!!!  This STUFF IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And yes, after getting home from the funeral yesterday, I had to take my eye makeup REMOVER (dust it off because it hadn't been used in a LONG time) to actually get the eyeliner and mascara off that I had applied YESTERDAY morning!!!  And the tears flowed freely ALL DAY LONG .... Too bad my foundation and other makeup didn't hold up as well as my eyes did ... lol... oh well ... can't have it all:)) 
And there you have, Susan's "Makeup Tip of the Day":))
