The verdict for Maybelline‘s Great Lash can be reached this simply: no. Just, no.
I know that’s not a “worth the hype” or “not worth the hype”, but… I’m not going to try it. Why not? Because so many people have a love/hate relationship with it. Because it’s everywhere, like an infestation. Because it’s so ugly! (Cold, hard truth: I’m shallow! lol. But really – I’d like my mascara to look acceptable in my pristinely clean cosmetic drawer and cabinet, not stick out like a sore black thumb.)
If you’d like to hash it out in comments, supporting or hating on it, go ahead – I’m eager to hear what you all think about this cult mascara!
Chanel‘s Blue Satin. All you have to do is see it once to fall in love with it.
(All Laquered Up has photos here.)
The verdict: There is none.
Why not? I think it has something to do with the unmistakable allure of this polish; the fact that I can’t see it without completely melting. This is gorgeous polish, people. It doesn’t get any better than this.
So why can’t I say it’s worth the hype? Uh…the price tag. Have you noticed it? I have. It’s obscene. I mean, it’s affordable, I suppose, but if you can buy a normal blue for under $10, and you basically cannot find this…
I’m waiting on a great knockoff.
Crème de la Mer. Haven’t tried it, don’t want to. I don’t care if it’s a miracle, it’s way over-priced and over-hyped! I mean, I’d much rather buy a $20 Olay cream and save the 100-odd dollars – spend it on a new dress, a pair of heels, a nice meal out… After all, you’ll end up with *almost* the same results.
Sure, La Mer might be better, but only minimally. Or hey, you could even save up for a while and just get botox – those are the results that are sought after, yes? Yah.
The verdict: Not worth the hype.
