It wasn't so long ago, that while getting ready for an outing with my posse (yes, I'm too old for that term but WTF), I whipped out my trusty mascara: Maybelline Great Lash in the pink and green tube.
I still have not lived it down.
You'd have thought I pulled a sanitary napkin and elastic belt set from my make-up bag that day, judging from the way the girls reacted. While I do fancy myself somewhat cutting edge in the product department, it seems I didn't get the memo: MAYBELLINE GREAT LASH IS SO OVER. No, I mean REALLY over. Over as in--A Flock of Seagulls called and they'd like their mascara back--kind of over.
Sheesh. Last I heard? Maybelline Great Lash was the best kept secret of runway make-up artists the world over.
It's just another good example of why a girl's gotta have friends. I mean, I could, to this very day, be applying a totally, embarrassingly outdated product to my very own eyelashes.
It just gives me the shivers every time I think about it.
I'm happy to report that this outrageous wrong has been set right with a Lancome product which, while I can't pick up a tube at Walmart? I have to admit really does work better than Maybelline. Great Lash. In the pink and green tube.
All this is to say if YOU are still making Bette Davis Eyes with the MGL? This may be the offer for you:
From Sephora, 10 travel sized tubes of the latest mascara technology for $35 (according to Seph an $85 value. And judging from the price of mascara these days? They probably aren't lying.)
