Happy 100th Birthday, Maybelline New York!

Has it really been 10 decades since Maybel Williams sparked a fire and changed the history of beauty? Quite literally actually as she attempted to enhance her very own lashes that were accidentally burnt. Her instafix? She concocted a mixture of Vaseline with coal dust to make them look darker and fuller. Inspired by this ingenious idea, Tom Williams, Maybel’s entrepreneurial brother, cooked up the world's first commercially available mascara called Lash-Brow-Ine. In 1916, a year after Maybel's accident, Tom changed Lash-Brow-Ine's name to Maybelline after Maybel (no less!) and Vaseline. Being the mascara pioneer of the world, Maybelline changed their mascara packaging to the iconic pink tube and green cap also known as the drugstore cult find, Great Lash.

This 2015, we're in for a double treat! To celebrate 100 years of iconic beauty, for a limited time only, Maybelline Philippines is bringing back their most popular and well-loved mascaras by fanatics worldwide – the Great Lash mascara.

  1. Ang mahal sa points! :)) Sadly, I'm only at 172. Not quite ready to get a VIP subscription, so I'll have to pass on this one for the meantime. Love the photo of the old-timey mascara. Maybelline was the first ever one I bought, and I've trusted this brand ever since.

  2. Ditto -- my first mascara brand is Maybelline too! I love, love, love Lash Discovery! The best for sparse, Asian lashes like mine. :)
