In which I try desperately to fulfill my need for thick glorious lashes at the drugstore.
My new office building has a CVS in it.
I'll let that soak in for a second.
Yup, so that means that on my way into the office, out of the office, to grab lunch, to go to a meeting, coming back from a meeting (you get the point) I can stop into the drugstore and browse the new mascaras, eyeliners, shampoos, etc.
It's very dangerous. Especially since I jones for new mascara like Heidi must jones for synthetic fillers.
So, on one of these trips, I noticed that Maybelline mascaras were two for one! I picked up a tube of my current love of the moment, the XXL and was struck by a fat yellow tube labeled COLOSSAL.
Since I didn't have the foresight to have someone lash (no pun intended) to the mast of a ship or something, I could not resist the siren song of the promise of thick glossy lashes.
So imagine the let down when I busted open the tube and discovered a similar wet formula like the Lash Blast. Seriously....are these the same? The Colossal was distinguished by an uber funky smell.
That was special.
I tried once or twice to use it again but was put off by the smell.
And into the trash it went.
to be continued....
No joke, as I was writing this post and watching The Hills (that's right, I multitask) the commercial for this mascara came on. No mention of funk smell. Call the FTC.
