Throwback Thursday: My Favorite Mascara from High School

Over the past few weeks, I have been stocking up on drugstore mascaras for a "Battle of the... Drugstore Mascaras" (stay tuned for that hotly-requested bad boy) and while looking around, I saw my used-to-be holy grail mascara that my 16 year old self LIVED FOR! ...If you knew me in high school, then you should already know whats coming. I turned everyone I knew onto this mascara - my prom date's mom, my best friend, ANYONE who would take my inexperienced makeup advice!  Yet somehow, despite my seemingly undying devotion to this product, our love affair fizzled out over the years  Why, you ask? I actually have no idea but it has been a good 5+ years since the last time I owned it, let alone used it.

So in honor of THROWBACK THURSDAY, we are kicking' it old school with an oldie but a goodie:
Maybelline Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Mascara!  I gave this baby a whirl to see if it could still hold its own in an arena of newer, hipper favorite mascaras.  Verdict? Just keep reading!

As I cracked the container open, the smell of the mascara (which I actually love) immediately brought me back to my bedroom at my parents house, getting ready before school in front of my dresser and the makeup covered mirror... Haven't decided if that's a good thing or a bad thing but reminiscing is sometimes fun.  It is also black as night, which I recall loving about it as well.  And the packaging is sleek and pretty; the metallic red logo and square, heel-like container definitely do it for me.  But NOW for the true test: does it give me the length and volume I remember sporting through the high school hallways?

Not a flattering angle of my nose but if we could get past that and look at THOSE LASHES!

... HECK YEAH IT DOES!! Why did I EVER stop using it?! Damn you, Sephora, and your sorcery! This stuff is so good. Definitely never putting it down again, my trusty side-kick did NOT disappoint me. Run to your nearest drugstore and pick yourself up this mascara. It's going to be your new BFF.
