Granny Panties Vs. Victoria’s Secret Low Rise Cheekys

granny panties

Who wears granny panties?  Don’t lie!  We all have at some point.  Although inarguably unattractive, the comfort is hard to beat!  And, that price though?!?!?  You can’t top throwing a 3-pack in the cart at Walmart.  However, if you’re like me, and got sucked up (get it, sucked up?! LOL) in all the hype and ventured out to Victoria’s Secret…

Well, these are obviously sexy!  And, I’m dealing with a bit more…ahem…trunkage…than the girls featured on their website.  However, I think that gives these suckers even MORE pizzazz!  The lace doesn’t show a panty-line, they are soft, and oh-so-comfy.  It’s nice to know that comfort doesn’t have to come in the form of parachutes (as my husband lovingly calls bloomers).  I would say they don’t ride, but I think they’re SUPPOSED to ride, and the light fabric makes it allowable.  I’m a super fan of these…VS LOW RISE CHEEKYS FOR LIFE!

What’s your favorite type of undies?

Avon Glimmersticks Eye Liner Blackest-Black

WILL WE BE FASHIONABLE?  Yes!  This is one of my absolute faves!  It’s self-sharpening, retractable and the color is rich, long-lasting and doesn’t bleed. The color is rich similar to a liquid liner, but it doesn’t smear easily.  It really makes your eyes pop!  You can’t beat $7 for some of the best eye-liner of your lifetime!  I like to wear it solo when I’m making a quick cat-eye on the run.  And, I don’t have to worry about looking like someone blacked my eye at the end of the day!  Hands-down, it’s the best of the best, Avon promised and delivered on this one!

$7.00 USD

Up your WOW factor. Wears for 9 hours. Smooth, glide-on color. Retractable, self-sharpening. Each, .01 oz. net wt.

Rock With You Metallic Eyeshadow Palette Vidalux Cosmetics


WILL WE BE FASHIONABLE?  FAIL.  So, I really had high expectations for this eyeshadow.  The pictures promise rich, bright, vibrant lasting color, smooth coverage and flawless blending.  It does nothing of the sort.  I like to dip my eyeshadow brush in water first–it makes the colors pop, and it’s easier to blend.  I’ve tried this shadow both ways–water and without, and it’s one of the worst eyeshadows I’ve ever purchased.  The color barely shows up, and it takes a lot–and I do mean A LOT, of work to get these colors to mesh well together.  I rarely use it, and if I do, I use it along with some of my other eyeshadow brands.  I’m not sure how the colors look so nice in the pictures, but I’m pretty handy dandy with makeup, and mine looked nothing like that! Even a recommendation of a good quality makeup brush and good eyeliner won’t help–I won’t purchase this product again.

$14 USD

SEPHORA COLLECTION Rouge Cream Lipstick Crush 23

Sephora Rouge Crush 23

Most importantly–WILL WE BE FASHIONABLE?  One word…YASSSSSSSSSSS! So this is one of my FAVORITE go-to must-have products of ALL TIME!  This lipstick lasts through eating, drinking, talking and yes, even napping!  Who can beat a product that will allow you to wake up beautiful?!  The color is rich and has the intensity of a matte–with the right amount of sheen and great moisture.  The color is deep and dramatic, and compliments my dark skin tone.  I could imagine this lipstick looking great on anyone–even someone very fair!  I like to pair this lipstick with a simple and easy eye because the Sephora Collection Rouge Crush 23 gives such a great focal point!    There is no shortage of compliments when I wear this lipstick, and it’s always in my purse.  You won’t be disappointed!
