    although in this day and age - it actually wouldn't surprise me in the slighest if an expose came out that there were psycotropic substances in make up that caused the wearer into a trance like state but also renedered them addictive

    if they put the CRAP they do in our food - it's not a great stretch to think the money men would have found some way to keep women (some women!) addicted to products costing 20 a pop!

    Okaaaayyyyyy.

    I think it reads like a spoof or April Fool's joke. Really.
    Yes! Maybe it was written to be an article in the Onion.

    I like putting Kajal (eyeliner) and mascara on my eyes, but because I TALK with my eyes (and I have blonde invisible eyelashes).
    I don't feel like it's an addiction, though. I'm cool without.

    I enjoy being female, because I have the OPTION of putting on make-up if I feel like it.

    I've started dyeing mine - 10 minutes of "why the f*** am I putting hydrogen peroxide in my freakin' EYES?!!" for a month or so of visible eyelashes. Just enough difference without being obvious

    What brand do you use? I've considered doing the same thing, but couldn't settle on what brand to purchase.

    You have indeed piqued my interest, NMG.
    My first thought was, that must be a little dangerous...but then I realized I stab myself in the eye with either the mascara or eyeliner every couple of days
