Make Me Yummy

This is the first week of the newly launched blog hop created by the very lovely would like to be a yummy mummy. So we all knew from the off with her blog name that this lady is on a mission and doesn't she mean business? I think so, she has proved very determined as a MOMenTUM girl.

Of course I am an extremely willing participant and shall be eagerly waiting every week for some great 'reveal' of a product I have not yet come across. I love to find new beauty treatments/products and gadgets to try and what better way to find out than through recommendations of real people. Real people that are not only like me but more than likely feeling like me. For my contribution every week I am going to reveal my beauty steals one by one that after years of being tried and tested, I give the seal of approval.

I am a sucker for new beauty potions and miracle workers makeup and have been known to fall for more than one advertising campaign. Show me pretty packaging and I am won over. More often that not though the item will stay in its box, for either not being what I thought it would be, smell like I thought it should or the colour I expected it to be.

The one item I always go back to is Max Factor Masterpiece Mascara in Black. It's my trusted mascara and nothing ever compares (not even their other lines). As I said I am often allured by clever marketing and a bargain price, so every now and then I buy another brand only to kick myself because it just doesn't cut the mustard. Money down the drain again and another mascara to add to the collection. Even though I have read you should replace mascara every three months. I wonder how many of us have mascaras years old but yet won't throw them out because they were pricey? or look posh? Just silly but then I am like that with perfume bottles, however that's a different matter as they cost a lot more and are a feature of my dressing table (just don't smell them all!).

So why do I like this mascara? It simply does the job I want it to. It's easy to apply, doesn't clump and splays out my eyelashes well without having to keep reapplying. That's when I think eyelashes look bad, too many layers. It also lasts well but within the three months.

It may not be much of a revelation but this is my wonder product for this week, what else can anyone else recommend? Can you challenge me to try another? Or if mascara is not your thing, something else entirely.

Join in the Make Me Yummy blog hop if you do!
