The question has been asked over and over and time and time again...what makeup product would you bring with you on a deserted island? I believe that mascara has been pretty much up top on that list every single time. As for myself, assuming that I get sunscreen as a default, mascara would be one of my essentials I would take on that island. With so many brands with promises of longer, fuller lashes ranging from high end to drugstore it can get kind of intimidating to sort through them all. I have this thing where I really don't understand the appeal of buying a $20+ mascara. Like, really? It's only good for a month or two then you have to throw it out because of the bacteria that builds up in it. I have gotten a couple samples and full size through sub boxes and the only one I think is worth it is the Diorshow.
Sorry, not sorry.
I have been a fan of Covergirl mascaras since high school and found the formulas to always be not too wet and not too dry. Just perfect enough to keep a curl and they usually do what they claim to do. When I saw this mascara in Big Lots for $3.50 I really wondered why I never thought to go for it before. Was it too pricey when I saw it sitting in the drugstore? Was I too obsessed with a different mascara at the time? I have no clue. But since it was so cheap and waterproof to boot I thought I would give it a whirl.
I picked it up in the only color they had left, black brown. I normally get a black or preferably blackest black. I can make it work, I'm sure I can. And I did.
I think the color is just perfect when it is just too hot to wear any makeup at all. It makes my lashes look thicker and they stay curled all through out the day without melting off. Sometimes I find just putting on a black mascara when my face is neked just looks a little too costumey or like I am trying to hard. I prefer this because it gives me the "I wake up like this every morning" look. I just curl and swipe once or twice and my eyes look open and awake.
It really is a game changer for me. I really wont turn my nose up a brown mascaras again because right now with the 100 degree freak weather we have been having I'm too lazy to care about anything else but looking like I didn't spend all night tossing and turning in bed because it's hot.
What I am most sad about is that I don't think they even make this mascara anymore and I really wish I didn't have to start this relationship knowing it can never last. I have seem some listings online for purchase but on the official Covergirl website this thing doesn't exist. My luck and timing just sucks. So after I finish this I will be on a new journey to find something that can give me the same look as this does.
So I have included a poll asking what you would take on that deserted island. It's so cliche I know but I included an exciting answer choice. I was inspired by a comment from an article that had a poll and have been itching to do a poll since then just to include this option.
I hope you all appreciate the "I don't give a damn" as much as I do.
It's an option, I won't be offended if you use it.
