Leslie Loves...{3.02}

I promised myself that I was going to do "Leslie Loves..." posts on a more regular basis this year. Given that this is the second month of the year and this is my second "loves" post, perhaps I will make it my goal to post about my favorite products/obsessions once per month. Stay tuned to see how this works out for me! :)

Let's move right along to this installment of products I'm loving...

Too Faced 'Better Than Sex' Mascara

Favorite Mascara

I'm a tough critic when it comes to mascara. I'm pretty sure I've tried roughly 328,347 brands/types of mascara in my lifetime...and I really do love this one. There's really not all that much you can say about mascara, but I will tell you the single best thing about Too Faced 'Better Than Sex' Mascara is that IT DOESN'T CLUMP! That's a BIG.DEAL in my book. It's pretty much the only mascara I've found that lengthens AND adds volume {why doesn't spell-checker recognize 'volumize' as a word?!!?} without getting all clumpy on your lashes. There are lots of mascaras out there that either add length OR add volume, but I can honestly say Too Faced 'Better Than Sex' Mascara does both.

The Wet Brush

My always-thoughtful mother-in-law included The Wet Brush in a care package she put together for me when Huston was born. I'd heard about this brush and how awesome it was for getting tangles out of wet hair, but since I don't really have a lot of tangles in my hair and it wasn't getting wet all that often {let's face it...I hated to wash my hair BEFORE the babe was born, so the days between hair washes definitely didn't become fewer after he arrived!}, I set this part of the gift aside and kind of forgot about it for a couple of months. I felt terrible when my MIL asked if I'd used it yet and I had to admit that it was still neatly boxed up in its package. I immediately went home and tried it out {on my dry hair} and loved it. I was able to brush through my dry hair without getting any static! Of course it was a couple days until I washed my hair, but once I had an opportunity to try it out on my wet hair, I finally realized what everyone had been raving about. This brush is legit.  The Wet Brush seems to magically slide through the hair without pulling/tugging on your scalp. You don't even have to be careful when you're brushing through wet hair because the soft bristles bend easily and prevent wet hair from breaking off even if there are tangles.  I had been using the same 'ole type of brush for as long as I can remember, but I had no hesitations in throwing it away and replacing it with The Wet Brush.

P.S. The Wet Brush is also fabulous in catching all of your hair when you're pulling it up into a ponytail {a Mom-tail as my husband likes to call it!}.

Do you use either of these products?
