There are a few things in life I don’t trust.
Take mascara for example.
How do I know which one to buy?
There’s mascara that makes your lashes long, others that make them thick. Then there’s 24-hour mascara, waterproof mascara and smudge-proof mascara.
But how do I know they really do all those things? I mean, what if every brand of mascara is really just the same thing mixed in the same pot and put in different tubes with different shaped brushes?
Fact is, there’s no way of knowing, really. As a conspiracy theorist, I believe it’s quite plausible that all makeup comes from the same makeup factory and put into different boxes while the owners laugh themselves silly at us. “Look at those easily-duped morons! They think they’re getting Cover Girl or Revlon when it’s all made from the same stuff in China!”
There’s no other point to this post. I mean, it just hit me today that buying mascara is dicey business. There are no guarantees that I’m getting something unique and special for my money.
Life’s like that. You take your chances. You’re never guaranteed anything, are you?
So why should mascara be any different?
