Recession Friendly Beauty Buy…NOT!
April 20, 2009 By 2 Comments
I recently strolled pass your shiny new mascara display at my local Walgreen’s and decided to give Max Lash Precise a try. Both the price tag ($3.49) and brush style (thin) immediately caught my attention. I couldn’t wait to get you home and wrap you around my lashes. Oh the excitement of a new beauty buy!
Thanks for the thrills!
Unfortunately my Jane thrill was short lived. The thrill of the hunt/acquisition was far more exciting than the actual results. See for yourself:
Here’s the packaging. Shrewd move, Jane. Display the brush and that will attract em’. Well this tactic totally hooked me. I love a thin brush!
Here I am sans mascara. I swear my lash line looks bald!
And here I am with two coats. While its an improvement, I don’t really feel the excitement.
I ended up adding about 4 coats just to make myself presentable to get out the door. Upon applying the mascara I found the formula to be really thick and somewhat difficult to apply. It was actually a little painful…if that makes sense. Basically, working the thick formula was a bit stressing on my itsy bitsy wittle lashes. Yeouch!
Anyone out there have experience with this product? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Please share with a comment.
