Guest Blogger: Beauty Addicts Mascara Review

While I am in NYC, I've asked a few lovely ladies to keep BAD going by guest posting. I'm excited to share their sites with you and hope you love them as much as I do. :) Next, we've got Stephanie from the dynamic duo "A Brunette Duet" If you aren't following these ladies you are really missing out. They've got the 411 on anything beauty related and if you want to be in the know, start following immediately! Here she's sharing her experience with a product from Glossybox.....
 
Hello girls! I am Stephanie from the blog, A Brunette Duet! I know, I can hear all your moans of disappointment that Nikki isn't around to dazzle you! I really am sorry! I'm also sorry that I'm not the one going to Fashion Week. (Insert jealousy here! I am positively PEA GREEN with envy! Bonus points if you can name that movie!)   

Today I have a quick review for you of a new mascara I got! I don't know about you but I've never heard of the brand Beauty Addicts so when this mascara popped up in my Glossybox a month or two ago I was a little skeptical! Here is a picture of the packaging and the brush.
It's a very wet formula so you have to make sure you give it time to dry before blinking but it does give a nice dark look to your lashes while staying natural looking! The wear time on it is great, I've been wearing it all day with no smudging or flaking and application really wasn't very difficult, although I prefer a regular old plain fat bristles brush.  What can I say?  I'm a plain Jane.

I wanted to make a good impression and for some reason I thought taking a picture of my bare naked eye was a good idea.  It wasn't but I'm showing you anyway, so don't complain, you've been warned!


As a side note, it's horrible when your iPhone takes better pictures than your camera, isn't it?  Sad, sad day! Back to business, you can see the difference in the before and after! You can also see that it really darkens the lashes but doesn't provide a whole lot of volume.

It retails for $20 on the Beauty Addict website and to be completely honest, I don't think I'd spend the money on it had I not gotten it in a beauty box.  It's a nice mascara that I'm happy to use but it really doesn't do much more than a regular old drugstore mascara would do.

Thanks for taking the time to stick around, and thanks to Nikki for asking us to take over for her!  I hope you you'll come by and visit with me and my friend, Laura, over at A Brunette Duet!
