NWR: I would just like to say....

....my mascara SMELLS!!!! 


I'm a believer in cheap mascara (since it's supposed to be replaced every couple months, I don't invest a lot of money into it).  I've long been a fan of Maybelline Volum Express, and Volum Express Turbo Boost.  So the other night, I ran across Volum Express The Colossal!!  Well, if regular is good, Turbo is better, than surely Colossal is even better, right?


So I used it for the first time today... it works alright, no better than the others (in fact, I don't think it's quite as good as Turbo Boost)... but the weird thing is -- it SMELLS.  Not bad, but sweet and perfumy!!!!!  It's the strangest thing!!!  And it's DRY now (I applied it like 2 hours ago!) and yet I can STILL smell it ever so slightly!!!!


LMAO!!  Who the heck thinks of adding SCENT to mascara??????

that is so odd! I would think that would be a hazard, like sensitive eyes or something?
