Prime Time + giveaway

Posted on Updated on

You know I’ve given up shopping until I’ve worn everything in my closet once, right? Well, ya know what? That frees up a lot of finances! I figure I can try to “up” my beauty game with some of the money I usually use to fill my closet. 

My makeup bag is lacking a LOT to say the least, because as I’ve said before, I’m low-to-no maintenance. 

Enter my friend Lesley who recently started selling Younique products. She started posting pictures and videos using products on her Facebook page. And, of course, I’m impressed! She’s already gorgeous as it is, but you could really see what kind of an impact this stuff has on her! 

I REALLY wanted to try the BB Cream that people rave about so much, but it was sold out at the time. I decided to try the primer instead. A makeup artist I know said she swears by primer for a smooth application and for bringing out the color of your makeup better, so I figured, why not?

  

I finally used it this week and I could definitely tell a difference in my makeup application and the end result! 

It went on really lightly and smoothly. You only need a tiny dot to cover half of your face so it didn’t feel heavy at all. 

I put it on half of my face and used no primer on the other side. The rest of my makeup consists of Bare Minerals powder, eyeliner, neutral eye shadow and mascara. 

 I’m not sure if you can tell which side has primer on it in my picture, but I asked my husband if he could tell and he answered correctly without hesitation! (Primer is on the right side of the above picture)

I said, “how could you tell?!” And he said the primer side was noticeably smoother. Hey, if my husband notices a smoothness, it’s worth continuing to use in my book!  (I know, the under eye bags and circles are a topic for another day! I plan on adding concealer and a real foundation to my beauty routine soon!)

You may notice a difference in my eyelashes as well. 

 On one eye, I used the famous Younique 3D fiber lashes I blogged about before. The other eye has Chanel Le Volume mascara on it. Honestly, when I tried the Chanel mascara, I LOVED it. I still do! But in comparison, it still doesn’t offer the length and volume the Younique mascara offers. And they’re about the same price! Plus, I already know Younique stays put until you wash it with face wash/soap and water. Then there are no raccoon eyes when you get out of the shower! 

So, if you want to try Younique’s 3D mascara, you’re in luck!! 

  
Lesley was kind enough to offer one to give away!
