MAYBELLINE! GREAT LASH! LOTS OF LASHES MASCARA!

MAYBELLINE! GREAT LASH! LOTS OF LASHES MASCARA!

maybellinelotsoflashesStacy B here! Eyelashes count as hair, right? Because last week I talked about how much my hair was growing and how healthy it was thanks to all the vitamins and pregnancy hormones and I really want that to translate to my eyes. I also promised more products that focused on my new healthy bits (hair and nails!) so I want to fulfill that promise.
 
So far, I have noticed no difference in my lashes. No long, lush lashes that brush my upper eyelids when I open them, no lashes that look like fake lashes but really aren’t, nothing envy-inspiring at all. Nothing like my husband and son whose lashes are probably like three inches long.
 
Why is that? How many of you have had a boyfriend, husband or guy friend whose eyelashes conjure up high-school levels of jealousy? I’ve been trying to convince my husband of 5 years to let me put mascara on him just once so I can see how long and beautiful they really are. He will not even entertain the thought. It’s not like I’m coming at him with the eyelash curler. I just want to see what gorgeous lashes really look like! We’re at the point where I’ve told him the next time he comes home falling down drunk he’s getting make upped. It’s been a very long time since I made that promise and nothing. He’s either totally grown up, or scared. We have a wedding to go to this weekend, maybe my opportunity is coming?
 
Since I am not blessed with feathery lashes and I’m clearly not getting that pregnancy gift I have to rely on products. I know I’m in the minority here, but I might be one of the few women on the planet that isn’t obsessed with Maybelline’s Great Lash Mascara in that iconic little pink tube. At least that’s what Allure, Glamour, Cosmo and a host of other magazines will have me to believe. It’s always the number one mascara and I am just not crazy about it. I always found the brush to be too thick and it would make the mascara clumpy on me. With too much clumpy mascara, I found it all over my face throughout the day. And forget tears or rain, one sign of water and I had to get to a mirror fast for some major touch up.
 
Then, they came out with a new brush! Yay! It’s called Great Lash Lots of Lashes Mascara  and I love it! It solved about 99% of my issues with this mascara. The brush is really different, it’s cone shaped, so really thin on the top and really thick at the base but still round all around. And, the brush is that thin rubbery-plastic that a lot of brands are using now, not the faux-hair brushes that seemed to clump more.
 
I tried it on and it really grabbed my lashes and spread them out.I could use the really thin side to get the corner lashes and the little ones on the outsides and I could pull them away from the mass and create an illusion of fuller lashes that spread out more. The thick part got the middle lashes and pulled them right out. They looked long, thick and not clumpy at all.
 
This new little miracle brush took care of everything I complained about but one…it’s still a dry-day-only mascara. My husband cracked some stupid joke and I laughed so hard I started to cry (pregnancy hormones, I swear) and guess what came streaming down my face? Mascara. Not a problem, we’re legally bound together, he can’t leave me because I look like a raccoon freak with a beer belly right now. It’s not advertised as waterproof so I wasn’t surprised. I’ll just hope there’s a waterproof version out there!
 
Anyone else love Maybelline’s Great Lash? Have you tried this cute new brush?
