Product Review – Lash M 3-in-1 Eye Bright

I’ve been using Lash M 3-in-1 Eye Bright for the last few weeks. Thanks to Meg’s Makeup for sending this to me in a recent gift package!

  • I like the icy, tingly feeling I get under my eyes when I apply this. I actually use it in the morning too – although the directions say to use it at night – because it makes me feel a bit more awake. I can’t find the ingredients on the Lash M website so I’m not sure what’s in there for that tingle.
  • The texture is a little bit sticky, so I have to put a moisturizer on top of it, lest my skin fold over and stick to itself when I lie down to sleep. The last thing I need in that area is another wrinkle.
  • I haven’t noticed that my panda circles have diminished, nor do I feel like it’s a good moisturizer
  • Finally – the cream squirts out of the container rather indiscriminately, and with that white-ish color…that’s just unfortunate.

Go on, tell me this doesn’t make you blush and giggle a little bit

I don’t think I would repurchase this. This might work for women who don’t have serious under-eye circles or wrinkling problems, but I need something a little more heavy-duty and with some slip.


Face of the Day

Here is what I wore today for an appointment I had at 9am:


  • Foundation – Lumiere Cashmere in Light Golden
  • Blush –  blush half of e.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
  • Eyeshadow – the shadow half of the e.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
  • Lipstick – Avon Smooth Minerals in Malted Minerals (discontinued)
  • Concealer – Silk Naturals Sleep in a Jar Light Peach Under Eye Concealer
  • Eyeliner – Avon Glimmersticks in Cosmic Brown
  • Mascara – L’oreal Something in Brown (can’t remember what kind! but it’s been discontinued)

I was going for a professional look, and these stand-bys are always quick and easy without looking like I spent a ton of time on my makeup (as I am wont to do).


Workout of the Day – TRX

I’d been interested in TRX for a while, so when a local gym that offers TRX classes was on Lifebooker, I snapped it up. At 20 classes for $20, I figured it was definitely worth trying.

After the first class…OMG. TRX is a humbling workout. It requires balance, strength, and coordination. I hadn’t been that sore since…ever.

Surprisingly, this gym is not overrun with new members using that fantastic deal. Classes are limited to 5 students, but I’ve had most of the classes alone so I can ask the trainer to work on specific areas. Today, it was my back. I’ve got a goal of doing at least on unassisted pull-up by the end of the year, so we worked on various back exercises, including low-rows.

I can’t wait for Friday’s class.
