One of the most fun things about sharing a room with Chelsea and Molly last month was getting to see what products everyone obsesses over. A new find I brought with me to the conference was Benefit’s They’re Real mascara. I’d heard lots of hype about this stuff, and after using it for a few weeks, I’m really loving it! At first, I wasn’t sure if I would, because to be honest, the wand bristles are so thick, you have to be careful or otherwise the formula will clump on your lashes. However, after playing around with how I apply it, I’m clump free and notice a huge difference before I apply the mascara versus after. They’re Real is great if you’re looking for thick, voluminous lashes. I like it better than CoverGirl’s Lash Blast, which is what I was using before. $12 more? Well, good point. Ask me in another month or two.
The biggest hit with us girls was Molly’s Bombshell curling iron. You might’ve seen me mention it last week on Liz’s Blogger Crushes post, but let me reiterate: this thing is amazing. I’d only ever used a regular curling iron to add waves to my hair, but after seeing how the Bombshell worked its magic on all of us, I’m saving my pennies for one! I don’t know how it does it — is it the high heat? the fact that it’s ceramic? — but this sucker will give you UNBELIEVABLE curls that will last even after sleeping on them. I curled my hair with it Wednesday night, and even by Thursday evening, still had great waves. Chelsea and Molly both did too! Chelsea and I each looked at our hair and were like, “Wow.” Molly, knowingly, just said, “You’ve been Bombshelled.”
