Hey, guys! Sorry for the hiatus. I’m back on campus, but have been incredibly busy with work. Hopefully you all didn’t miss me too much. :) Anyway, I just wanted to share my bulletin board of the month with everyone! With Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought it would be appropriate to promote V-Day. It’s the global movement to raise awareness and end violence against women and girls. For more information, you can check out the official website.
For those of you who haven’t watched a performance of The Vagina Monologues, I strongly suggest going to one! My campus hosts a performance annually around this time of the year, and I don’t regret seeing it for the first time when I was a college freshman. Personally, my favorite monologue from the play is ‘My Vagina Was My Village’. It’s very haunting, dark, and personal. Here is Eve Ensler talking about the inspiration behind it, then later performing it.
I also decided to keep my door decs simple this month. I went into Adobe Photoshop and made name tags that say “Hello, my name is..” in six different languages! The paper I printed them out on was kind of thin, though, so I dont expect them to last very long before getting worn or ripped down.
In other news, I ran out of mascara pretty quickly this month. Decided to give Maybelline’s The Colossal a try. It was about $7 at Target, and the name was promising! I thought that if it was anything like Maybelline’s The Falsies, I’d love it just as much.
Unfortunately, I’m not a huge fan of the bright yellow packing or the brush. The bristles don’t catch every eyelash upon application, and makes it difficult to get product on in a few strokes. The formula itself is also very dry. So between these two factors, it takes a REALLY long time to get the effect I want.
Even then, my lashes don’t end up looking as dramatic as I would like. The length and volume just aren’t enough for my tastes. It give you more of a natural look, and the impact isn’t even close to “colossal”. Definitely not repurchasing or recommending. Until next time! ^.^
