A love letter to the best drugstore mascara that ever existed

Dear Majolica Majorca Lash King Mascara,

Six years ago, I knew I loved you before I met you. Your predecessor, the Lash Expander Mascara, immediately blew my lashes away to unbelievable heights, so I knew that you were magic even before you laid yourself onto my eyes. I was right. You were amazing.

You made my downturned lashes come up coquettishly, like they were created by the divine that way. They were thick and extra black in a manner that I never thought was possible thanks to the fiber pieces in your formula. My lashes stay curled all day and never smudged - truly, you were the perfect mascara for my sad excuse for eyelashes.

A couple of coats of Lash King look like falsies!

Eventually, however, I wasn't faithful. You were so clingy and hard to take off! I would lose a lash or two every time I go out with you. You were completely waterproof but that came at too high a cost.

So many mascaras came and went into my life. I've forgotten you all these years until one day, you came back to my doorstep. I was in love with another mascara (or three) those months ago, but soon enough you became my one and only once again. You're too good to be true. Everybody keeps on asking what falsies I'm wearing when it's only mascara!

Luckily, we have already formulated the In Her Element First Wash Cleansing Oil (P450 at inherelement.ph) which makes taking you off at the end of the day a breeze. It's the only one that can melt you quickly and without damage to my lashes. If I were to be honest, we wouldn't be together again if it weren't for this cleansing oil.

I am so happy that we're an item once more. I hope that this time, it's forever.

Majolica Majorca is available in select Watsons and SM Beauty stores. I know there's a counter still inside SM Aura's department store! The Lash King is around P795 per tube.

PS Yup, Lash King is better than Heroine Make's Long and Curl. It has thicker and longer fibers in it, IMHO.
