We were taking our oldest son to a birthday party and I thought I had gotten myself completely ready when a quick glance in the mirror showed otherwise. I had put on my False lashes like normal but then didn't put any mascara on to blend them. It was VeRy visible to me that I had black lashes resting on my natural brown ones....WHAT KIND OF A MAKEUP ARTIST AM I????? My husband said he couldn't tell, but.....he's a guy.....enough said. We stopped at a drug store and I grabbed the cheapest mascara I could find (that WaSn'T the green and pink bottle disaster!*) and it turned out to be this one. It cost just over $5 and I figured I could do a review on it as well. I liked that it was thick and did just what I wanted it to. I even liked the smaller wand, which I don't normally. I didn't love that quality as much when I used it on my natural lashes unfortunately. Give me a large curved wand any day when I'm not wearing my falsies! The only thing that left me a little blah was that it seemed to take a while to dry. Like I was scared to blink too soon...which leads to me keeping my eyes wide open like a dummy...which leads to my son never getting invited to another birthday party. Let's just say that it is worth the money for me since I am usually wearing false lashes but I'll be sure to give myself a few ticks of the clock before I step out into the cold with wide open eyes!
*I am always shocked and dismayed to see posters and signs all around the Maybelline Great Lash mascara as saying it's the #1 purchased mascara. That it's the makeup artists secret (c'mon Carmindy...REALLY???). The only reason that it may be #1 is that people pick it up out of habit or they don't KnOw any better!!! Let's change this ladies by spreading the word that it is pure JUNK!!! The only "secret" to me still having it in my kit is for when I actually need the model to have smeared makeup. Yuck, yuck YUCK!!!!!
