Last April I purchased several new domains that I planned on starting new blogs on. Well, a couple of the domains were for current blogs that I wanted to move to their own domain, but I still haven’t made the move because the blogs are doing well where they are.
Unfortunately I didn’t really get to work on the new domains until recently. I had done some posts on them, but it was very sporadic. Lately though I’ve been starting to work on the new blogs regularly and I’m quite happy with how they’re turning out.
One of the blogs is a shopping blog. I talk about everything from products for the home to fashion trends, interesting gadgets and of course the occasional discussion about cosmetics.
In order to stay current I’ve been surfing shopping related sites, magazine websites and I’ve subscribed to a few new magazines.
If you have a niche blog do you subscribe to websites or magazines that are related to your sites topic?
I’ve actually really gotten into the site and I think once I’m ready to reveal it to my regular readers that you’ll like it too.
I’ve even gone so far as to purchase some of the items that I talk about. No I’m not purchasing anything that we won’t use in our home. So far the type of things that I’ve purchased were mainly cosmetics. Hey, I needed to replace some of my makeup anyway so I might as well try some of the new products like mineral makeup right?
So far I’ve been pleased with all of the products I’ve tried. My only disappointment so far has been Cover Girl’s Lashblast mascara. Oh the mascara and the big wide brush are pretty good. My lashes looked great, but the mascara did flake a bit. It’s the handle on the brush that’s the real disappointment!
It’s so big it’s hard to hold, especially when you’re trying to gently apply mascara to your inner eyelashes. The first time I tried using the mascara I actually poked myself in the eye twice when the brush handle slipped from my fingers. It’s just too big and too slippery.
Don’t think I’m a newbie at applying makeup either. I’m actually a makeup artist! I haven’t used my experience on others much recently (side tracked with a career in nursing).
I think the next time I try using this mascara I’ll wrap an elastic band around the brush handle to give myself a better grip. I certainly don’t want to poke my eye again!
Have you tried Cover Girl’s Lashblast mascara yet? What did you think of it?
