Product Junkie

So, I'm a bit of a product junkie.  I can't help it.  I'm also a consumer.  Infomercials are designed for people just like me.  I see a commercial for a mascara that actually makes your lashes grow 40% longer and I cannot resist.  I'm not sure if it's that I actually believe it will make them's not even that I need longer lashes (mine hit my glasses as it is...)  It's just....well, how absolutely cool would it be to have abnormally long eyelashes.  You know, like stoppin' traffic your eyelashes are so long.  I'm just saying, it sure would be something to blog about.

Reason number 467 why I love my kid:  Have you seen the infomercial for the "Slap Chop"?  It's compelling to say the least.  When the number flashed across the bottom of the screen, and the guy (Vince, I believe his name is...) says "Call Now!!"  Q was like, "Mommy, should we call now?"  Ahhhh, just like his momma, that kid.  But seriously, in his defense, who wouldn't want a slap chop after seeing this:

I know, right?  Revolutionary.  Like change your life for the better, who would ever need therapy, world peace is on the horizon kind of revolutionary. 

Back to me...I buy pretty much anything that promises to make me look prettier, girlier, younger or thinner.  Sometimes, I'm completely disappointed and other times the products do exactly what they say they do (Amazing!!)  Here are a few such gems:

Erase Paste by Benefit Cosmetics
This stuff is fabulous.  It conceals my blemishes like nobody's business.  Under my eyes, around my nose, this stuff hides a multitude of sins (which includes a fabulous patch of adult acne...I'm saying stress...but it's probably from the contraband cigarettes I've been smoking when Q isn't looking...)  It's basically spackle for your face.

Some Kind-A Gorgeous by Benefit Cosmetics

This is some kinda AMAZING!  It's light-weight, almost invisible and it totally blends your skin tone.  I have lots of freckles and this just blends them into a unified almost-tan.  It's great for those days when I'm trying to look as though I'm not wearing any make-up at all...

This is my next little test...L'oreal Secret Studio Primer. 

I figure if you have to prime a wall before you paint it, you might as well follow the same principle on your face.  Okay, okay that's just a lame excuse to try it.  And if it's good enough for Eva Longoria, it's good enough for me.
