When I’m in the department store and my eyes start to light up at some new/breakthrough product, I really do wish that a sign like this one would pop up.

I was headed to the MAC counter one day to get my trusty no fail lash combo – MAC mascara and primer. I’ve used it for years. It’s reasonable and it works. I also like Diorshow, but it’s a little pricey considering how much I love and overuse mascara. But I digress, I meandered over to the Lancôme counter hypnotized by the big-headed dolls and left with a tube of Hypnose Doll Lashes Mascara.

This post is not a review but a personal rebuke. Lancôme's Doll Lashes is a fabulous product, but I had a hard time using the brush and it wasn’t dark enough for me. These two points should have turned me away immediately. I looked at the strange brush on the display with contempt and a raised eyebrow. When I asked the saleswoman if there was “blackest black” she said “no.” I bought something that didn’t meet my standards.  The product doesn’t deserve a bad review; my shopping skills that day were horrid {sad face & head hanging low}.


  1. Why is black mascara never really dark enough? It always is more gray to me. I'll have to try MAC mascara sometime. :)

  2. I got a sample of bare minerals that was sufficiently dark too. Sephora has the best sample rewards ever!
