Wake Up!

Yesterday morning, while I did my morning run to our local Kroger for "Cinnamon Roll Sunday", I ran across the Bright Eyes collection from Almay. I'd seen the ads when the new line first came out a few months ago, but wasn't entirely convinced that some neutral eye make up was going to do much for my olive-skinned, weary eyed, complexion. Well, needless to say, I decided to treat myself to the Bright Eyes liner/highlighter duo for $8.95:

I tried it this morning and was pleasently surprised see that not only is the darker shade the perfect balance between brown and black (too black makes me look akin to a racoon) but the highlighter, when placed on the inside corner of my eyes and below my eyebrows, really does brighten things up! Really! I've tried a similar eye brightening product from Benefit and I have to say that Almay really has outdone itself this time. For $8.95 you must try it. It comes in three different shades for my lighter and darker complexioned friends. Hopefully, after my normal two cups of coffee, I'll feel as awake as I look.

I have to say, I bought this at your suggestion and loved it! It made 7:00 am seem less angry.

cheers for cheap make-up that works!

Hmm.. I might need to try this stick. My purple circles aren't quite sophisticated. Right now I use Bobbi Brown concealer, but even that doesn't wipe it out completely.
