A "Great "Challenge...

Sunday, March 30, 2008

Day 40 over on Blogdorf Goodman's 40 days and 40 nights of Beauty Cult Classics ended with the ever so questionable Maybelline Great Lash Mascara. I, along with others, in the comments section expressed our bad experiences with it. It wasn't til I came across a comment that said that most makeup artists use it on false lashes cause it works better, I thought I would challenge that. Since I've only applied false lashes once and used Great Lash a couple of times without the results I liked, how about a personal challenge?

Here are the goodies:

Maybelline Great Lash

Ardell Starter Lash Kit

Maybelline Nail Lacquer( courtesy of Rite Aid/Edkerds...some buy mascara get nail polish free joint.)

So...I did this on Friday morning, like I didn't need to get to the Le Lion at 8:00 am with the midgets watching Noggin( actually Kelton Patrick was watching me, he watches me put on makeup all the time.). Here I am in the car.
Here I am close up. I did it! I put on the lashes. Kia, are you proud of me? lol!Well, I cut them in half and put them on and then put on a couple of coats of Great Lash. Okay, it worked well but then I had some eye watering episode during the day and the Great Lash started to run. Of course the lashes stayed intact. I don't about Great Lash on my natural lashes but I like the sooty blackness it gave the fake lashes.

I'll give myself a B+ on this...What ya'll think? And check out this "The Mystery of Maybelline Great Lash" over at Jolie In NYC. Explains everything.:)


For the Insiders...

You know how I feel about that pyramid scheme called Sephora Beauty Insider. I won't lie and say that I don't try to bank those points to get that "deluxe" sample. The best one I've gotten was Laura Mercier Translucent Powder. Now they got a new one up for 100 point grabs, Make Up Forever HD High Definition Powder. Interesting...I want it. I think I have like 75 points to go though...
