What Ever Happened to Sweet Baby Jane???

Well, she was alive and well on Saturday...

(For those of you who don't know What Ever Happened to Sweet Baby Jane is a 1960's cult horror film, starring real live rivals Bette Davis and Joan Crawford.  Baby Jane, played to camp perfection by Bette Davis, is a former child star who tortures and torments her sister Blanche.  Blanche was the prettier and more popular of the two in their 20's. A car accident after a glittering party keeps Blanche wheel chair bound and in the throes of Jane's evil clutches.)

I was in CVS last week, which is never a onesie, twosie proposition.  I spied a small tube of DermaSilk's 90 Second Eye Lift, that could later be purchased and later redeemed for a $5.00 off the product above,  Just for the fun of it, I popped it into my bulging  red basket.

Then came the blizzard of 2013, where I got to spend a blissful 32 hours in my jammies.  By mid-afternoon Saturday, I officially had cabin fever. When my husband suggested going out to lunch and to see Side Effects, (FAB btw...), I rallied.

My husband would make a magnificent Firefighter.  The man can literally be dressed for any occasion, including Black Tie, in under 2 minutes.  His patience for my lotions, potions, maquillage and blow dryer time is nothing but admirable, but this time we needed to chop chop. Not a good time to give DermaSilk's 90 Second Eye Lift a test drive, but who knew???

I applied a tiny amount of 90 Second Eye Lift to clean, dry skin and let it dry for what seemed like a minute and a half, before applying moisturizer and some Too Faced BB Cream.  I slapped on some blush, liner and lipstick and applied some mascara in the car.  Good 'nuf...or so I thought.

When we returned home about 5 hours later, I happened to catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror.

Quelle horreur!!!!

My previously uncrepey under eye area had turned to papier mache.. They do warn that too much application can result in a white residue, (nuh-huh), that can tamped down with a damp cloth. It can be and it looked even better after I added some Murad Active Radiance Serum.

OMG!  I'm not sure what this says about my marriage, that my husband either did not notice, or did not mention how scary I looked.  Either way he is a fabulous sport and I am grateful for his blindness kindness.

You've been warned Blanche... Oh and Happy Valentine's Day Darling.  You are the true Saint.
