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
Looking good! What is the eyeshadow base you used? I find that is very hard to get right (and my eyes have a year or two on yours!)
Thanks. The eye shadow is from Ulta. It came in a kit, and unfortunately there is no name on it. It does stay on well. If your eyes are blue, bronze works quite well.
Us poor men just have to get all saggy. It ain’t fair….
Um no, try childbirth, menopause, job inequality, I could go on for days! LOL
Ok…you got me!…(folds eyelids over forehead and and gets over it) 🙂
These are $8.75 today at ulta, online only 😍
I saw that! Thanks for the reminder!
