We caught a brief but interesting beauty discussion this morning between GMA anchors Lara Spencer and Amy Robach. The topic was high-end mascara VS. drugstore mascara. Is there REALLY a difference?
GMA's Beck Worley purchased 4 mascaras and had a pro makeup artist apply each one to see if buying expensive allowed lashes to appear even more lush:
•Chanel Inimitable Mascara, $30
•Lancome Oscillation Mascara, $36 (the applicator vibrates as you apply the Mascara)
•Benefit “They’re real” Mascara, $23
•Maybelline Great Lash, $5
Becky concluded that the cheap mascaras let lashes look just as long and full. The makeup artist chose the Chanel as the winner.
And then Lara and Amy piped in. Both girls go drugstore for their mascara:
Lara uses Maybelline's Great Lash..
While Amy prefers L'Oreal Voluminous.
Honestly, we thought these GMA stars would have purchased high-end mascara. It's great to know that TV people who are used to getting dabbed with tons of makeup on air, 5 days a week, sometimes go cheap.
Kind of refreshing. Lara and Amy are pretty down-to-earth. No makeup snobs here.
