Hello! Welcome!

I feel like I don't say that enough.

Today I will be starting something new called "This or That" where I literally choose between two like products and give you the run down on both.

Let's get to it, shall we?


WINNER: L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly

Now, some makeup and beauty purists will tell you this is not a true comparison because the Smashbox has extending fibers in it and the L'Oreal does not (that I know of) but here's the deal:

I wasn't looking for a lash extending mascara when I purchased either of these. I was looking a mascara that would make my lashes look fuller, and last all day. The L'Oreal absolutely does that for me, while the Smashbox (still a great mascara) was just 'meh' for me because I felt like it would wear off half-way through the day and I'd be ready to apply. I also thought the formula was a bit runny.

And if you're anything like me, that's a deal breaker. I'm an apply once and go kinda girl.


WINNER: Klorane Dry Shampoo w/Oak Milk

When I went into the store, I was actually looking for the Klorane since I was out of my current bottle (I'm on my third). The associate at the store recommended the ColorProof over the Klorane and because I'm always cool for trying new things, I was game.

It took about 2 weeks before I realized that I really didn't like it.

And now that I've gotten towards the bottom, I like it even less. It literally does nothing for my hair. Nothing. Sorry Colorproof, but it's just not working for me.


WINNER: Sonia Kashuk No. 29

In the not-to-distant past, I was an E.L.F brush fan because of the price point and they did a pretty decent job without the bristles falling out of the brush. In fact, I'm still a fan of some of their products. 

However, the second the Sonia Kashuk brush touched my face. I was hooked. The price point is good, (the E.L.F is obviously less expensive, it's sort of their thing) and the quality is fantastic!


WINNER: luMESH Hydrating Lip Gloss

I received a sample of both of these in past Birchbox's and tried theBalm right away but didn't try the luMESH for some reason. 

Anyways, I recently rediscovered my sample and I.Love.It.

My sample is in Sadie (which is exclusive to Birchbox) and it's the perfect shade, has the perfect amount of shine and lasts pretty long for a lip gloss.


FRIENDS vs How I Met Your Mother


Bah! You really think I'd ever be able to choose between these two shows? I just threw this one in here to see if you're paying attention.  Both shows are:


wait for it
