Maybe she's born with it...

...Maybe it's Maybelline


Or maybe it's a crock of "you know what."
I mean, really! As if a vibrating mascara wand is a good idea. It's hard enough to put mascara on with a perfectly still wand. I can't imagine that thing vibrating right up next to my eyeball. Mark my words...someone will poke their eye out with that thing, blame the vibration of the wand, and sue Maybelline.
And let's talk about the false advertisement. So, let me get this straight...if I use your special, magic vibrating mascara wand, I will have lashes that look like that!? Well move out of my way while I run out to the store and grab me some of that! Where is the legislation that says you can't sell me something based on false claims. I know, I know...they get around that by never actually claiming that your lashes will look just like that if you use their product. No, they just show them growing exponentially before our eyes and only show women with these ridiculous false lashes on their commercials for the fun of it. It has absolutely nothing with leading us to false expectations...nope, not at all.
So I actually decided I would test my theory that there is no way my lashes would ever look like those on their ads if I used the product, and guess what....I was wrong. They actually look JUST like the ones in the commercial. Check it out:

Now you better rush to the store & grab you some before I buy it all up!

Seriously Lindsay?? For real?? ARE THOSE YOUR REAL LASHES?? Maybe it's because you don't usually wear make-up...but those lashes do not look real. Seriously?? You better let us know before we go waste our money on false advertising. ;0) LOL.

LOL!!! I am cracking up. Those are most certainly NOT my lashes! I thought surely I was making them exaggerated enough that it would be obvious. I guess not! :)
It's all Photoshop.

LOL that is so funny. I totally thought the same thing about that, when I saw the commercial. CRAZY! You are too much girl! :)

Lacey said...

Okay, you got me. I thought, surely those are NOT her lashes...but then again..you hardley wear make-up so I thought, maybe she has these amazing hair length lashes and just never wears mascara.
You are a riot Lindsay. hope you guys have a great long weekend! YAY for school next week!!
