Mascara Facts

   A stolen tidbit I learned reading the fabulous Preppy Princess Blog, that was too fun not to share:

This year in September, Maybelline Great Lash Mascara turns 40!!!  You know the one that is pink and green that you can find everywhere. I can attest that I have tried ALL mascaras, specialty and drug store brands included, and I still love Maybelline the best, the price doesn't hurt either.  It's no wonder they've lasted 40 years, their Blackest Black sure does the job, I am lucky that I do have long lashes  to start with, but they do the best job making them look full, and it comes off a lot easier than other mascaras I have tried, using make up remover. 

And obviously the Pink and Green bottle makes it fun and sassy, guess who inspired that idea way back when?

Lilly Pulitzer!!   Even back in 1971 she was known for using the pink and green colors seen on their bottle, in all of her collections.

This year to celebrate the big 4-0 three different designer's have designed limited edition bottles, you can find them  at Target: the designers include Tracey Reese, Max Azria and Vivienne Tam and each has come up with a design that reflects their personal style. 

Happy 40th Maybelline Great Lash!!

Happy Friday xoxo
