The first ever post I wrote was entitled ‘A Poke in the Eye’ inspired by the Bourjois Disco something or another mascara. At the time it was no joke – it hurt.
I poke myself in the eye quite often, but my excuse is that my lashes are short, therefore I am always dealing with an area just a teeny weeny bit close to my eyeball.
Other reasons include:
1. A cat walking into my arm
2. Drinking coffee at the same time
3. Jessica is about to solve the mystery on Murder She Wrote
4. Answering the phone/Phone going off
5. Not having any light sources (ie. applying mascara in the dark)
So here they are – 5 offending mascara’s with unnaturally hard brushes that hurt if you so much as dare to have a slip of the arm. You fools – make softer brushes!
1. Covergirl Lash Blast
Lash Blast’s brush is massive – humungous! So if you should accidently slip then OUT – it’s like getting a fat lip but more of a fat eye.
2. Lancome Fatale
Fatale’s brush works for some, it didn’t work for me. It’s especially tricky for short lashed women and boy is it a heavy mascara. Whilst trying to get close to the root with the illogical brush I have ended up with an eyeball full of product, followed by extreme watering, followed by pain.
3. Avon Super Shock
Another stupidly massive brush which is just impractical for women like me. It’s quite hard as well so this one also hurts quite badly. I only bought this because I thought it looked so nice on Reece Witherspoon that it detracted from her massive chin.
4. Fasio Digi Colour
This mascara brush is not so bad but the mascara itself – my lord. A nuclear bomb could go off and nothing of me would be left apart from my eyelashes, so long as its covered with this stuff. Its like tar.
5. Shu Uemura Length & Waterproof
I actually like this mascara a lot, and the tiny brush is fab but it is also its downfall. Its so small you can’t always see it coming and before you know it POKE!
This is the first ever mascara I owned and loved by the way.
So ladies, tell me – what do you poke yourself in the eye with regularly? Ahem.
