Under the Dome Season 2: are you watching?

 Hello Gorgeous!
Happy Monday! I love Mondays  and I get so much accomplished. Like, on my to do list for today is to watch the Season 2 opener for Under the Dome. Which was last summer's break out hit. Will lightning strike twice for the show?

Stephen King wrote this first episode, and has a cameo, so tonight's Nielsen ratings are already stacked in the show's favor.

 So what else is in store for the citizens of Chester's Mill?

I read the book and it was so awesome and the thing I understood about the time frame in the book is that it took part over several weeks. In the tv show, I can't tell how long they have been Under the Dome? Aren't  they running out of basic supplies now? Like toilet paper and mascara?

Here is the beautiful Julia Shumway played by Rachelle Lefevre. In this press junket photo she looks like she has lost some weight? Good for her, but what about the character? must be the stress of being Under the Dome!

Nonetheless, this beauty looks amazing with mega watt lashes and I'm curious if she too is using the Benefit Cosmetics They're Real mascara? 

 I received this sample at the 2014 Generation Beauty YouTube Space L.A. party. I'm a huge fan of the Benefit Cosmetics brand and I was so excited to have a full size sample to try. Do you remember last year? While I was at L.A. Live for Generation Beauty and the inaugural event, I went during the "happy hour" to pick up my sample from Benefit and they were all out! Empy! Gone! Nada! Finito! They had been handing them out all day. Oh I wish I had known that!

 So enter "They're Real" mascara and remover. So far, I LOVE the long, and full effect of the mascara. It's a bit stinky, and a tad tacky to apply to the lashes, but, with a bit of maneuvering, the effect is beautiful and lasts all day in the Arizona heat.

In fact, it lasted through my shower. So, this product does require a makeup remover. I am a diehard Bifacils user, but for testing sake, I tried the creamy textured remover in the black tube you see in the photo. Hmm, not really impressed. Again, I'm a die hard fan of a different brand. It took some serious rubbing using the They're Real Remover to get the product off and it had a fair amount of stinging and burning.

Long story short: I love the They're Real mascara and would totally buy it. I do not like the remover and will be staying with my favorite brand for now!

I don't know what Julia Shumway is doing in Chester's Mill while Under the Dome for makeup but whatever she is doing, she sure looks good!

How about you? Will you be going Under the Dome tonight for the Season 2 premiere?
