Of course I have watched Sex and the City. I’ve watched all episodes, I’ve watched the first movie. I even went back and watched the second movie, even though the first one was pretty disappointing.
So I get what Lancôme is doing here, both with naming and with description. Monsieur Big. “You’ll know he’s the one at first stroke”. They obviously want us to think of Carrie Bradshaw and her somewhat questionable choice of men.
But I cannot help it, with the name, the appearance, heck, even the description I instinctively think of something else. Now I don’t know if any kids (probably mine?) will ever stumble upon this blog post, so I will not go into more detail here. Question is: Is your mind as filthy as mine?
To get back on safe territory, let’s concentrate on the fact if the Lancôme Monsieur Big mascara delivers.
Random fact about my life: I love Fantasy and historic stuff. Not only books, but fashion and lifestyle as well.
Don’t get me wrong, I am perfectly happy to live in 2016 and wouldn’t want to give up female rights and health care for staying in a cold castle and most likely die by the age of 40, but there were some fascinating things around back then.
Did you know that there was a “language of the fan”? A series of ways you could hold, flap, open or close your fan and thus transport a message to another person without having to say a word? Like invite someone to a secret meeting outdoors, telling him he has greatly annoyed you or that it is time to shut up?
Fascinating, and complicated to master!
Even without a fan I can sense you asking: Why on earth is she telling us that?
Well, these days we let our eyes do the talking (or the smartphone, but let´s ignore that for romantic reasons), and Lancôme Grandiôse Mascara promises a “wide-angle fan effect” for your lashes. The perfect opportunity to start practicing wordless communication, don’t you think?
