Anthropologists and historians believe that the first mascaras were created in Egypt as far back as 4000 BC. At that time, women used a mineral called galena to produce a black powder called kohl, which they applied to their eyelashes and lids. Although much has changed since the ancient days of Egypt, the notion that long, dark eyelashes are synonymous with beauty has not. Mascaras are the modern answer for women looking to accent the natural beauty of their eyes. The Too Faced Mascara collection in particular offers revolutionary products that represent advanced research in cosmetic science.
