My eyelashes have a new crush.

Remember this? Who was crazy enough to do this?


Okay, I’ll be honest, I remember doing this very thing thinking it was the greatest hack for combing out my clumped up lashes.  What in the world was I thinking?  This is a freak accident waiting to happen.   So many things could go wrong here.  Like your Great Dane decides he needs a hug and comes up from behind, jumps on you, and oops, there goes your eyeball.  Mascara clumps would be the least of your problems.  Or worse, this is a recipe for a massive eye infection.  I was going to Google the horror stories but my imagination is doing a great job on its own.

What I don’t understand is why didn’t we question the quality of the product rather than sticking a pin a millimeter from our eyeballs?

I was told, by every beauty magazine, that Maybelline’s Great Lash is not only the best bargain but it’s also a great mascara.  Looking back, I have to disagree.  I remember having to buy a new tube every month and the damn thing would become thick really quickly.  And I was kind of brainwashed in my twenties and thirties into believing no other mascara would do.  But yet I kept buying more of this cheap pink stuff.

Well, thank goodness things have changed.

Most recently I was using a product I received in a 2017 Ipsy Subscription(I’ve since canceled this subscription because how many Argan oil products does one need?) The mascara was Lash Domination by Bare Minerals.  At first I thought it was great.  Look at that brush.

But in time I noticed that during the day the mascara would flake and land on my cheeks and many times into my eyes and dirtied up my contact lenses a lot.

So I went searching for a mascara a week ago that would lengthen and not clump my lashes and low and behold “I think” I found it!  Stila Extreme Lash Mascara!

So far so good.  It retails for $23 and it lengthens your lashes really well.  It doesn’t clump.  And I don’t feel too made up, yet my lashes look great. So far no flakes but I’ll update this blog if anything changes.


I don’t expect this mascara to be the end all mascara.  Like most crushes in life, there’s always something bigger and better.  Uh, I mean better 😉

For now I’ll flirt with it and see where this relationship goes.

Have a great day!
