My mom introduced me to Merle Norman Mascara and it is still my favorite mascara. I used to watch her put her make up on. Her mascara has always been the same since I can remember. People have introduced me to drug store brands and different department store ones but I always go back to this one mascara. It never clumps and it is like an old friend, completely reliable. I finally found a store in Minneapolis so today I stopped by and grabbed some. If it is time for you to get a new tube of mascara I would recommend this one.
