Raccoon Eyes--- Giveaway! EXTENDED!

I don't wear mascara. I have a terrible habit of rubbing my eyes. I also have awful dark circles that probably come from years and years of working too hard and not sleeping enough, but that's not what this is about. The eye touching and the natural darkness mean that after a few hours, I look like a rodent burglar no matter what mascara I'm wearing. I have tried a ton of them, and the benefits never outweigh the quickness with which I look like a dead person. 

The easy solution would have been to stop touching my eyes. Yeah. 

Fidgety people are fidgety. It's pretty much impossible. And then, when I think about not doing it, I end up doing it more and looking like a raccoon even faster.

First. World. Problems.

This first world problem, however, has been solved. I found the mascara of my dreams. 

I don't actually dream about mascara, but you get it.

I introduce to you to the mascara that holds up even through my neurotic neurotic-ness:

Clinique High Impact Waterproof Mascara

Seriously, kids. This stuff is great. I wear it every day. I put it on at 6:00 in the morning, and it's still in place when I get ready for bed at 11:00 p.m. One night, I was super gross and fell asleep without taking it off, and not only was there nothing on my pillow, but my eyes still looked fab the next morning. I also managed to test this stuff out during the most stressful month I've had in a while, and it withstood all of the tears and exhaustion like a cosmetic BEAST. 

I take it off at night with a small amount of makeup remover on a cotton ball and BAM! Naked eyes like it was never there. 

I am so happy with it that I want my readers to understand and enjoy the majesty, so I'm giving one away. All you have to do is comment on this post to enter. Then, you can get extra entries by sharing the post on your social media. Tweet it, Facebook it, Instagram it, Pin it, sky write it, dance on the rooftop with it-- whatever you have to do. Just post a comment with the link to your share, and there you go. 

A winner will be selected on Monday, December 2, 2013. So get to posting!

I have no affiliation or relationship with Clinique, the maker of this product, and they did not supply the product for the giveaway. I purchased the product myself and will be shipping it myself. I have no sponsorships or affiliations with any companies. I am an excited consumer who wants to shout from from the top of a mountain, but I don't have a mountain, I have a blog.

Also, you get an extra entry if you can tell me what movie that last line referenced. Also also, we'll be best friends. 

As always, it's hip to be square (and wide-eyed!), kids.
