Maybelline Great Lash Blue



The Maybelline Great Lash mascara in blue is a fun pop of color to add to your daily look. You can pile it on for a more vivid blue, or you can keep it subtle. I found that swiping it over my normal black mascara gave my look just a hint of blue that was still work appropriate and yet fun.

Now, my opinion of Great Lash has never been the highest. In high school I think most of my friends used it. By college I had moved on to other mascaras, but my friends stuck with Great Lash. From what I can tell, this is still a hugely popular mascara. But I hate the brush. I’ve never liked it. I’ve tried this blue version on top of my favorite black mascara, and I can definitely wear it that way, but to wear it alone, it’s not the blue that turns me off, it’s the brush.

The eyeliner that was sent with the mascara was surprisingly good. I liked it more than I expected considering I’m not a huge fan of Great Lash. It glides on nicely, stays put, and comes off easily.

Final verdict: If you already like Great Lash, this is perfect for you! The blue adds a fun pop of color that is buildable, or you can keep subtle. But if you don’t like Great Lash already, then this probably isn’t for you.

Bookish Girls Dish: Fave Mascaras


Hello Lovelys!

So last night Laura tweeted a new mascara she bought and is loving (I’ll let her share) which started a convo that lasted for over an hour…LOL Yeah, that’s how much we love our makeup! That being said, it was not long before I got the idea to write a post sharing our favorite mascaras. So, without further ado…here are the Bookish Girls’ Fave Mascaras!

Lori’s Fave Mascaras:

Confession: I wasn’t blessed with gorgeous long curly lashes. So as any savvy girl I have to improvise with some good mascara! It’s been a long search to find “the perfect” mascara, but a few years ago I discovered Benefit’s BADgal Lash Mascara at Sephora and I found a winner! There’s nothing really fancy about the packaging or the mascara itself, but it turned my baby fine lashes into a set of sexy full lashes that looked like a pair of falsies (which I’ve been known to wear on special occassions..haha), if that’s not a win I don’t know what is!
