All the mascara talk of a previous post made me be a bit nostalgic for Maybelline. Actually, I still wear Maybelline Great Lash as I’ve never found a better replacement, especially for the money. But I was curious to see what ads during the 50s and 60s had to say about my old favorite. I never could locate one from the late 60s, so I decided to go with the early 50s. What an air of mystery our enchanting ad girl portrays!
I also found an ad from the early 1940s, in which it stated that Maybelline came in three colors – brown, black and blue. That’s right, blue! And I thought that color came about in the 60s because we were so cool. I loved the blue. It was just so different from real lashes.
And I did located my little 1960s cake mascara. The color is velvet black. Yes, we all wanted velvet lashes.
