Last night I sat in mystified wonder as I watched a commercial for a prescription drug that will grow longer, darker, thicker eyelashes. The spokesperson is Brooke Shields.
Are we that desperately vain that we are willing to have possible "darkening of eyelids" and "irreversible changes in iris pigmentation" in order to have thicker eyelashes?
Is mascara simply not good enough?
It's sort of impossible for me to visualize going to my doctor to ask for a prescription for the stuff. That would be weird.
