10 Oct Snow White and the Seven Mascaras: Find your best wand in verse
Let’s face it, dear readers. This is the age of the longest lash. We’ve seen so many products to hit the market, but our staple — the mascara– remains our wand of choice when it comes to amplifying lashes. Today’s guest post comes from Adina Zilberman of KraseyBeauty, who takes her quest for the perfect mascara into verse.
There once was one very fair maiden- and a princess no less! Both honest and kind, just- and sweet as a warm spring day, she ruled the land with her heart in her eyes and her head on her shoulders. Our story begins one fine morning, late spring. The day was new, and a very special day it was, for it was the day that our fair maiden was to marry her handsome, charming prince. As sunshine streamed into her royal bedroom, she rubbed her sleep filled eyes, pulled on her pink silken robe, and called for her royal cosmetician. In just under an hour, our sweet princess looked stunning, not that she needed much help, anyway. Before slipping into her wedding gown, she afforded herself a quick trip to the magic mirror, for good luck of course. She uttered the following:
“Mirror mirror, on the wall, am I today, the fairest one of all?”
And the mirror replied:
Snow of White, my how you shine
Never so lovely, has there been a bride
Lucky is your prince, to have you by his side.
But alas, my dear princess, there is one small hitch
For your eyes are so lovely,
But your lashes aren’t rich
It breaks my heart princess,
But my words ring true
Heed my words please, for I know what you must do.
And it was then that Snow White cried out:
“Dear mirror, please help me! On this my wedding day, what can I do?!”
And the mirror replied:
Deep in the forest, past bushels and trees
A cottage exists
There enter, if you please
For there on the table, you will surely find
7 distinct tubes to get you out of your bind.
7 black tubes, all magical- it’s true!
Listen on princess, I will tell you what they do.
Use Phenomen’Eyes by Givenchy
For lashes that fan out
For her round spiky applicator leaves no room for doubt
Butterfly lashes, long, rich and curled
Your fluttery lashes will be revealed to the world.
Next there is Smoky Lash
By Make Up For Ever
For smoldering sexy lashes
A worthy endeavor
Lashes so dense, and as black as the night
With a fringe oh so smoky, it can only be right
Yves St Laurent Volume Effets
Faux Cils in Noir Radical
For dense, ultra-thick lashes
That may render you fanatical
Multi tasker extraordinaire
Our dear Extase by Dior
Her length, curl and thickening properties make her easy to adore
With an exceptional formula, an amazing brush too
Your limp, boring lash days would surely be through
For sharp, spiky lashes
Miles and miles long
With Maybelline’s Lash Stiletto you surely can’t go wrong
With just a swipe of her long, spindly brush
Your fringe will be unstoppable
Long, and dangerously lush
For lengthy, lush lashes
Long, full, and defined
Lancôme Definicils yields results most refined
With precious plant extracts
An amazing formula too
Just one application, and your lashes will thank you
With a formula that’s backed by science
Rich, clump-free, and ionic
Lashes are lusher, stronger, and fuller
Why this ambitious little number even does curl
With her indigo shade, your eyes will look bright
Surely then, you will have the glammest lashes in sight.
And here you do have it
Why not forget the rest?
Seven brilliant mascaras we’ve put to the test
Lashes that flutter, with style I’ll say
And just in time for your special day!
So that when you ask who’s the fairest of them all
This much will be true
The answer my dear, will always be you!
The princess smiled to herself, and went off in a hurry, in search of the cottage. I won’t tell you which mascara she went with, for that is for you to decide. Needless to say that the princess, her prince, and her fabulous lashes lived happily ever after.
