Happy day after the July 4th! I’m off work today just hanging out. I visited my friend Marv earlier, now I’m just chillaxing on the couch. Having had the past five days off I visited Ulta twice. (Obsessed much? Yes).
Gravity is not being kind to my eyelids, as I watch them disappear before my eyes, literally. I’ve been looking into some possible procedures, but after doing extensive research, I’ve decided against it. I did a Botox eyelift four years ago, I liked the results, but it only lasted three months and cost $600.
I’ve never been big on liquid eyeliner on my lids, as I wear glasses and I could never get the darn line straight. I was looking through my vast eye make up collection, and came across a freebie Clinique Quickliner for Eyes Intense. I tried it and really liked it. I went to my local Ulta and got Intense Clove. I must say it really enhances my eye color, and makes my lids not quite so hooded looking. The color lasts all day, and doesn’t smudge. I just did a quickie eye make up job today, as I was only going to do volunteer work.
I got a post card in the mail from Ulta saying I could get a full size Clinique Clarifying toner with any purchase. A $14 value. Dang, winner winner, chicken dinner! I was looking for a clarifying cleanser and the salesperson said to use this instead. The salesperson was super helpful with my color selection.
Here are a few photos. Please keep in mind I’m 57, and know I will never have the eyelids of my youth without medical intervention. And I’m okay with that.
The Clinique Quickliner for Eyes Intense at Ulta is $16.50. I got Intense Clove. I used points since I’m a Ulta rewards member and only paid $7.50. Clinique Quickliner at Ulta
