So I usually keep pretty close tabs on my makeup supply, but somehow a few weeks ago I ran out of mascara. I usually buy from the Clinique counter or order MK on ebay, but I needed it ASAP so I ran through the files in my brain of ads I had seen in US Weekly and remembered this one with Rihanna.
On a side note, I had always thought her name was Rhi-Anna, but today I discovered it is actually Ri-Hanna. Interesting.
Anyway, needing the mascara right away, I ran (drove) to Wally and purchased Covergirl Eyelights. I found the one that is made especially for brown eyes. After using this for several weeks, I have come to the conclusion that there is nothing special about this mascara at. all. It doesn't make your eyelashes sparkly or illuminated or anything of the sort. It just makes them black.
It's just regular mascara.
I don't get why they want you to think it lights your eyes up or something (I mean, with all the fancy advertising, I was actually thinking my eyes were going to have a twinkle in them.) I'm beginning to wonder if the one made for blue eyes is exactly the same but just in a different package. After having to go through this total letdown from the drugstore cosmetics industry, I have decided to start a mission. I am going to try out different types mascaras that have been hyped up by the media. I will test them and report back to you. I will do this because I love you.
PS: last night at midnight I was watching a rerun of Tori & Dean while eating a bowl of vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce, peanuts, and rainbow sprinkles (yeah, I know.) and I decided that I really would be a much happier person if I had Tori's arms. I'm totally into skinny arms right now. I mean you can put Spanx on other problem areas, but there is just no way to shapify your arms without actually having to do pushups or curls or something.
On another side note, I would never, never want her scary boobies.
