Elf 3 in 1 Mascara Review



When I first bought this mascara, and tried it out...I loved it. It definitely made my eyelashes stand out and worked better then any other mascara I have used. It looked very light-weight, natural and definitely defined my lashes. I used this mascara about 3-4 separate times, and each time I was amazed at how it transformed my lashes. I also loved the shape of the brush for this mascara. 



   Unfortunately the down side to the mascara is that I only got to use it 3-4 times because when I tried to put it on the 5th time, there was absolutely no more product in the bottle and the brush was completely dry. Now, this product is only $3....but honestly I don't feel that it is even worth $3. Because of the tiny bit of product that was in the bottle, it should be priced at $1. It is very disappointing only being able to use a mascara that you loved a couple times because there is not nearly as much product in the bottle as there should be. 





Now, lets get into the packaging.
  The packaging is very nice, the bottle is matte black with white writing on it and is very light weight. But I can't say whether that is because of the material the bottle is made of, or the tiny bit of product that was in the bottle. 






Would I buy it again? Absolutely NOT!

Best Chocolate Chip Banana Bread!

Yummy! I'm convinced you, and everyone you know will LOVE this bread!

                                                        Photo source: www.karenskitchenstories.com 

This chocolate chip banana bread has the perfect amount of sweetness. And it counts as being healthy because of the bananas, right? I made this a couple weeks ago and it was so moist and delicious. It lasted about two days in my house. My 1 year old LOVED it also.

So let's get to it!!
This recipe will make 1 loaf (using a regular size loaf pan)


INGREDIENTS: 

  • 2 bananas- very over ripe (1 cup mashed, you may need 3 depending on the size)
  • 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups of flour
  • 1/4 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt



INSTRUCTIONS:

         Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 
     Prepare loaf pan by spraying with cooking spray


  1. In a bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt together.
  2. Mix in the oil, mashed bananas, and eggs.
  3. Stir in the chocolate chips, just until they are combined to make sure you are not over mixing it.  
  4. Pour the mixture into loaf pan, and bake for 60-80 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean in the center of the bread. 




Concealer Tricks

Whether or not you are a makeup professional, or just started experimenting with makeup...It is always good to stay up to date on new tips and tricks. So here are some for concealer.







Under the eye tip: Instead of drawing a triangle under your eye, make a half circle from the inner corner of your eye to the outer corner.


Making eyeliner mistakes? Use concealer on an angled brush to fix them


Looking tired? Place concealer on your brow bone, the middle of your eye lid, and the inner corner of your eye and blend.


Lipstick bleeding? Line the outer edges of your lips with concealer and blend it in. It will keep your lipstick from bleeding.


Eye shadow not staying on? Blend concealer on your eyelids to keep it on and prevent it from settling into your crease.
