Six months or so ago, my favourite Urban Decay Big Fattie mascara ran out. What kind of mascara to try next? What a dilemma! I ended up getting a tube of Dior mascara for around $25. And it was okay. Ish. I mean, my eyelashes looked black, and it was good. Ish.
The other day, I saw a commercial for Maybelline Volume Express Falsies mascara. Now, I’ve been around for a little while, at least long enough to know that you don’t take the claims of commercials/advertisements at face value. Nonetheless, I was intrigued enough to give it a try. At about $8, it was 1/3 the price of the Dior mascara that I wasn’t all that impressed with.
So okay. I don’t look like I’m wearing false eyelashes. But my eyelashes appear noticeably longer and fuller, and I have to move my reading glasses a little bit down my nose because otherwise my eyelashes bump against the lenses.
I’m not dissing Dior. But in the great mascara showdown, I’m sticking with Maybelline.
(and Urban Decay? Sorry, but the Maybelline falsies is comparable to your Big Fatty for a lot less money! Don’t worry. I’ll still get my smog and midnight cowboy and your awesome palettes.)
