Mascara? That’s what I’m gonna talk about today?
The gal who makes videos without a thought to what she looks like (much to your delight – don’t pretend you aren’t pointing and laughing)?
We’ll get to the saddy sad why in a sec…

Isn’t it a beauty?
THE SADDY SAD STORY:
I had cancer.
I not only had cancer, but I had eyelash-stealin’ chemo.
It’s been a bit over three years (THREE YEARS!!! ~high-five~) and my lashes, well, they be weak.
My go-to mascara, which I have loved (and still use regularly for ever’day wear) is Maybelline Great Lash.
It’s a reliable workhorse that allows me to look like a mostly normal person (y’all know, I’ll never be normal).
The thing is, sometimes I wanted my eyes to pop. Not outta mah head, that would be gross and painful, but to look like I have more than 15 eyelashes per eye (that’s a high estimation).
The first time I wore it, I fluttered my new found fat AND phat (does anyone say that anymore?!) eyelashes at anyone who looked my way. This product works as advertised, with a couple of caveats.
* Big fat lashes.
* Big fat glorious lashes.
* Big fat enviable lashes.
* Stays put through the worst allergies or boo-hooing through commercials.
* A bit clumpy, so you’ll need to clean the wand from time to time.
* Tougher to take off than my Great Lash go-to.
My eyes didn’t look like the model’s on the package, but my scrawny lashes suddenly looked like they’d been hitting the gym – they had a bit of muscle behind them.
If you haven’t been through cancer treatments and have a good amount of lashes to begin with, my assumption is you’ll be happy with this mascara.
