Did you know "modern mascara" was invented in 1913 by a chemist for his sister Mabel? Yes it's true! This chemist went on to start a company, you guessed it, Maybelline! Now, I've tried high end and drug store mascaras, and I will tell you time and time again, I am a loyal mascara buyer of Maybelline. I started off with the old standby green and pink tube in highschool, progressed through the 3X, 5X, 7X and now, I'm currently using the Colossal, to which, IMHO, no other mascara (not even high end Lancome) can hold a candle in the wind. I was very pleased to learn that Maybelline was the modern day inventor of mascara, must be the reason why it's so awesome!
But regardless of which brand I happen to be using that day (today, it's Givency Phenomen'Eyes Mascara), I am thankful that I am able to quadruple coat my lashes in my favorite black thick paste on a daily basis.
