How do you make a million dollars? First: Get a million dollars. - Steve Martin
So, I was born with no eyelashes. Okay. I do have them, but they are about two millimeters long and quite pitiful.
Mascara is my friend. It has been since my mom allowed me to wear it.
I have worn all kinds of mascara with all kinds of brushes dressed in all kinds of tubes. I have been the friend of curved brushes, straight brushes, thick wands, thin wands, waterproof, five hour, 10 hour, 18 hour (apparently there was a time when I stayed up for 18 hours at a time).
I remember when experts told us our mascara wasn't working because we needed to throw it out every six months. I also remember when they told us not to pump the mascara because that would activate certain chemicals and that could cause us to go blind.
After years of going through every conceivable kind of mascara I developed some serious eye sensitivities. So, I switched to Clinique for everything. For years I have worn Clinique mascara.
Until about a month ago when I desperately needed some mascara. If I remember correctly, it was right before Halloween. I know it's hard to imagine that I would not plan well and not have the things I needed on hand, but that's precisely what happened.
So, when I was at the grocery store I decided to give Cover Girl a try. I bought the LashBlast 24 Hour Mascara. My first question: Who stays up for 24 hours? And subsequent questions: Aren't we supposed to diligently remove all make-up at the end of the day in order to prevent aging which can occur seconds after you go sleep with make up still on your face? So, who stays up for 24 hours? Aren't their eyes so bloodshot by then that no amount of quality mascara is going to help them?
Regardless I bought it. And, I liked it.
The crazy coincidence is that this opportunity to post about it came up after I'd been using it for a few weeks. So, here's what I can honestly say about it (because lying sucks and I suck at it): It's not clumpy as I kinda expected it to be (sorry, CoverGirl). It's surprisingly light in it's non-clumpiness. In other words, it looks like you have mascara on (in a natural kind of way), but it doesn't feel like you have mascara on (that's really important for sensitive contact wearers like me). It lasts for the entire time I am awake (which is no where close to 24 hours). Someday I will test it for 24 hours and write another post. Kidding!
