I have been watching a lot of television recently. Along with my favorite shows (Jon and Kate Plus 8, What Not to Wear, the Food Network stuff, etc.) come the inevitable commercials. And most of them are retarded. I have never really believed in the power of advertising. Until the other day. I saw a commercial for a new Cover Girl mascara with Drew Barrymore. I really like her, and her eyelashes looked AMAZING. I was absolutely positive she was wearing fake eyelashes, but I was still impressed. Then the next day I saw a commercial for Maybelline mascara that was sort of the same thing. HUGE, long eyelashes. I thought to myself, "My mascara is running out, and I need more, so...I might as well try it." So on our most recent Walmart outing, I picked up the Maybelline kind, only because it was $2 cheaper. The next morning (yesterday) I tested it out. Here is me before,
and here is me after.
NOT! That was the commercial girl. Here is the real me.
I know, I need to pluck my eyebrows, but let's be honest. I look NOTHING like that model. I wasn't too disappointed. After all it was my own fault for expecting commercial results from an at-home experiment. But, hey, it's better than nothing. Maybe my next experiment will be fake eyelashes...
