Feathering Fridays: Mascara Musings

A month or so ago, I went out in search of organic cosmetics. My first stop was at a local nail parlor [Originails]. I had googled Jane Iredale sellers in my neck of the woods and this was the closest locale.

That tale is relayed elsewhere on this blog [see May 29, 2015 posting] so I will not repeat myself.

However, I did manage to acquire a sample of the Jane Iredale mascara and primer.

Mascara and I have always had a love/hate relationship–so much so that for years, I went without it. When I wore contacts, chunks of mascara were forever lodging themselves in my eyes–a nasty business!

Even some of the “better end” products  were hanging around my eye frames the day after I scrubbed it off; or, interfered with my glass lenses; or tried to make a home in my eyes…

Back to Ms. Iredale.

The product is easily applied, looks great all day, does not irritate in any fashion, and is easily removed.

My sample is almost empty–time to take the step and purchase…

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!
