Ah mascaras.

They all promise to do one amazing miracle for your lashes: define, curl, lengthen, OR thicken. But how about a mascara that does all of the above for us gals who want it all? This magic product eludes us year after year. Why do the makeup companies keep coming up with a brush or a formula that only does one thing but in a new and improved way?!

I hope some research lab or marketing executive for a cosmetics company figures this out. Shu Uemura, I'm looking at you. You came up with the mother of false lashes and the holy grail of eyelash curlers. Get your scientist chickens off Project Unicorn and onto Project Magic Mascara, stat!


  1. Hee-hee, so true. I want some fake lashes like those from the pic though...I've never worn fake ones and they look fun.

  2. gotta love mascara...=)

  3. from afar, they look like butterflies that just landed on the eyelids...

  4. i love mascara, i think ive found the perfect one, its not even that expensive! maybelline !! thickens, lengthens and curl with any curler! waterproof or non waterproof!

  5. Lenorenevermore, that's a very interesting way of looking at them! I see what you mean.

    Heartofpearl, I tried Maybelline Great Lash ages ago and was disappointed by how clumpy it was. Are you referring to a different brand? My standby right now is Cover Girl Lash Exact because it always makes my lashes look very defined and won't clump even after about 5 coats.

  6. hahaha lisa i LOVEEEEE using mascara however I stopped using it 4 years ago - i go with eyelash extensions now - I recommend the Wink Beauty Lounge downtown! Trust me - you will never go back to mascara again! you just wake up - and your lashes are long and thick!
