Mascara News: Maybelline’s retro and Hello Kitty mascaras

Soooo, instead of doing  a mascara review EVERY Monday, I’ve been thinking talking about all of the happ’ns in the Mascara World. You know, deals, sales, upcoming mascaras, mascara ads, mascaras commercials from the 70’s and all other randomness about the one product that women spend millions of dollars on annually.  And yes, I capitalized Mascara World like it exists. I reside there. You laughin’ at me? :)

I took a stroll in Target a few days ago and saw some kids that I THOUGHT were being pulled from the shelves.

Mascara Monday: YSL Mascara Singulier Exaggerated Lashes

Clumps readers are pretty funny. Some of them are annoyed to bits when I review pricey mascaras. The fact is, to be an adequate resource for mascara lovers, I think I HAVE to review all kinds of mascaras. While some of us don’t want to spend over $7 on a tube, there are other ladies, that would rather use luxury brands. And I think that’s perfectly fine! As Mama Clumps, “Do what yo can afford.” Yves Saint Laurent is one brand that I WISH I could dive into more. y wallet simply won’t allow me. But after reviewing YSL’s Volume Effet Faux Cils, I was hooked. Can Singulier Exaggerated Lashes do the same thing?

You know what?  MAC Cosmetics gets an enormous fist from me. This mascara was listed on their website for months before it was released in store. No bueno for a mascara fiend like myself. Of course I could have ordered it online but who wants to wait THAT long? Well here we are, darlings….was this mascara worth the wait?
