YSL Mascara Product Review

In all actuality, the name of this blog post should be YSL mascara *LOVE* but...

Let's start with product presentation - let's be honest, sometimes it is nice to have a super cute product and the shiney gold tube is awesome!  Honestly, it is easy to find in my bag because it is so different from all of the black that most make up comes packaged up in!  So, there's our first plus!

Next, I love the little click when opening/closing - the YSL logo lines up when completely closed!  No worries of the makeup leaking out onto everything else in my bag...

When I first pulled the wand out I was admittedly a little skepticle.  It all looked like a matted up mess on there and I wondered if it would really deliver.
Then I tried it...
And boy did it ever deliver!
The wonder of the wand is that it captures mascara on it allowing there to be enough on the wand to actually make it on to your lashes!  Great plus it that you don't have to constantly "redip"  The brushes are so close  that they allow great detail of your individual lashes rather than a clumping of many lashes together!

There is a great and quick little video on YouTube by Influenster that shows the zigzag application of mascara for your top lashes!

So, for me - 5 star product YSL!  Keep up the great work!

Hello!  This is not my normal crafty post but I have to share this wonderful product with you!

The Vicks Cool Mist Humidifier is wonderful!  We are having a yucky Winter here full of colds, flu, and dry air due to the heat - VICKS to the rescue.

First, I need to disclose to you that I did receive this product free to test from Vicks and Influenster, however the opinions of the product are solely my own.

We have owned Vicks humidifiers in the past and although worth it, the plastic seemed to be thinner and would break down fast.  Also with the older models, you have to pour the medicine into the water which can sometimes make a mess.  Oh and the amount of "mist" they put out was not consistent...AT ALL!

That is NOT the case with this new model! I love that the product seems to be VERY durable (I knocked it off the nightstand onto hardwood already and it survived!) AND no more pouring the medicine in!  These use wonderful little pads that slide right in and viola - your menthol smell has arrived.  The amount of mist seems like a very consistent rate throughout the duration of use but isn't so much that things are left wet or damp around it.

Most of you already know that I am a nurse by day so this product is completely my "thing" to test!  I am all about keeping my little family as healthy as possible and thanks to Vicks - I feel like we are taking an extra step to healthiness!
