Some people solve complex equations.
I, as longtime readers know, have an eyelash complex.
That's right - you all can go on obsessing about the size of your intellect, or your chesticles, or run about solving actually important global issues - but I will be right here, scheming how to furtively switch the Anonymous Husband's lush, long eyelashes* for my own scrawny set without his noticing.
*Dear God: Really, incredible lashes on a man? Just a thought. xo, LBM
The Product: Imagine my delight, then, when I popped into my friendly neighborhood Sephora this weekend and received the following goody in my "Beauty Insider"** check-out bag:
**I'm afraid that this sounds like product placement - it isn't. I will always tell you if someone has asked me to review or plug something. Pinky swear.
Wildly intrigued with this wonderfully named "BADgal Lash" mascara, I immediately sped home in the Trophy Wife Wagon to investigate. I eagerly anticipated the most lush, illicitly tempting lashes, the likes of which would instantly entice men to do my bidding or, more importantly, my laundry.
However, after a few go-rounds with the product, I propose the following re-name:
- SLIGHTLY-MISCHIEVOUS-gal Lash or
- REMEMBER-THAT-ONE-TIME-I-ALMOST-GOT-TIPSY-ON-SMIRNOFF-ICE-gal Lash
. . . because "bad" in the "outrageously good results" sense, this isn't, but it is pretty decent. Gold stars to the applicator wand, which wouldn't clump despite my enthusiastic attempts - just picture Grace Kelly leaping around her boudoir, frantically gauging at her eye with a mascara wand, and you'll get the picture. It also held with no visible flaking throughout a work day. It just didn't have that extra volume or length oomph which those of us who are languid of lash require.
The Bottom Line: solid purchase for those who already have decent lashes & are sensitive about clumping; for you, this is a good, everyday mascara buy on the high ($19) cosmetics end. Sadly, for those of us driven to coveting our husband's lashes, just go on and invest in DiorShow already. Because what price a lash complex?
