I've not left the house without mascara since I was 16 (a VERY long time ago!) My lashes are short and fair, and visually don't exist at all unless they get a little help. My relationships with different mascaras have been rocky. I'll try one, we'll be happy together for awhile, then I get mad at it and break up with it. I just broke up with a MAC mascara for being too messy, and I'm now involved with a Clinique waterproof one that I have high hopes for. I just wish I could find the Mr. Right of mascaras. Is there any hope for my fickle ways?

Does anyone have one that they're loyal to and would like to recommend--just in case Clinique gets kicked to the curb?
