I have used several different brands. They are all basically the same in my opinion.

I use my fingers to apply (after moisturizer) but you can use a brush too.

Bonus Tip – If You Use Eyeliner Switch to Gel

Honestly it is so much better. It is easier to apply and lasts all day so you don’t get those black flakes under your eyes and on your cheekscomparison-gel-liquid1

Toddlers 5 Favorite Items To Flush Down The Toilet

Today’s entertaining guest post is from The Tucson Plumber . They gave us a list of the top five items tots are tossing in the toilet.

drain_toysMost parents I know have a love/hate relationship with the toilet. Especially if you are a parent of toddlers. Around two years of age, young children are thrilled to discover the toilet. Even before potty-training is a subject of discussion, tots quickly and enthusiastically learn that they can flush objects down the toilet. This hobby quickly becomes a favorite “game” for children of various ages. However, this annoying practice can be unsafe for our plumbing system as well as for the environment.

  1. Toys – From stuffed animals to plastic cars, to talking phones and crayons, toddlers love flushing their prized possessions down the toilet. If a toy is flushed, plunging may work to unclog the toilet.
  2. Jewelry – If your gems are left within the reach of your tots, you may soon have a problem. If jewelry or other very valuable items are flushed, they might be recovered from a “J trap” (more common beneath sinks and basins), or from a sewer cleanout between the residence and the sewer line.
  3. Baby Wipes–It’s a fact that kids love baby wipes. And although they are often marketed to be flushed like toilet paper, these wipes create clogs and backups in sewer systems.
  4. Paper Towels – Kids love to mimic their parents, who are often cleaning up messes with paper towels. Unfortunately, flushing them can cause big problems to your plumbing system. These towels are not designed to break down in water like toilet paper.
  5. Disposable Diapers –Diapers are made from toxic plastic that’s designed to expand when it comes in contact with water. In the rare chance you actually get it down the drain, it will instantly cause a terrible back up.
