    H&M (a UK clothing chain) are now selling men's mascara. What distinguishes it from women's mascara, I don't know. Probably the packaging... MaxLash etc. ;)

    Anyway... just how ready are you to take it like a man?

    In my days treading the boards I've worn a bunch of different make-up stuff. Mascara was the worst, difficult to put on, stings when you get it wrong and in the grand scheme of things does f*ck-all.

    No, I wouldn't wear mascara (or any make up for that matter) by choice. But then I hate the feel of even sun cream on my face and wearing that isn't a matter of choice here.

    No mascara for me thank you. Blergh.

    Nyet. I don't use any cosmetics as it is. I'd need to start with hair products before I could graduate to mascara...;)

    ....But you should make this a poll!

    Erm, no. But I know some blokes that would if magazines like GQ said it was fashionable.

    I think it'll have a market... but not exactly sure if that market shops at H&M. Doesn't exactly strike me as a major goth/emo kid hangout. I'm sure there will be the odd bloke who will take it on outside of those niche markets, but it's definitely not for me.

    Moisturiser? Fine. I have no problem spending £30 on an Origins tube, and I always pay out for quality shaving goods. But mascara is not for me...

    Not even as an androgynous pirate.

    BTW, the eyepatch is for therapeutic purposes. So is the seeing-eye parrot.

    Would and have,plus spending 12 months on Interferon which has the side effect of making the hair on your head fall out and your lashes to grow commonly referred to as Llama lashes,some glass wearing people have had them grow long enough to touch there glasses,groovy side effect.Incidently I've also shaved of my eyebrows which caused some interest.

    Not really... my eyelashes are long and beautiful enough already. ;) Anyway... it's a bit too emogoth for me.

    Though I am partial to a little bit of glitter and eyeshadow on a friday night out, especially the overdosing red eye look. :)

    Why should girls have all the fun anyway??? :(

    Does it come with THE Lube? :p

    Sorry, with all the mentioning of the lube by MR users, I had to say it for the sake of belonging to the forum. :D

    Nope, no mascara for me neither.

    No, I'm more likely to turn up smeared in engine oil than makeup. Just not into the whole prettifying thing.

    I don't think so. I'm not wearing any mascara. I'd probably end up poking my eye out or something. :p

    When I was really young, girls would tease me about wearing mascara. Like my eyelashes looked so good, full, or whatever girls think.

    Since I was a young boy, i really had no idea what mascara really was, but asking mom got me the info I needed.

    From then on I always just said "you're just jealous I dont NEED mascara!" to anyone who thought I was wearing it and felt the need to point it out.

    so, would I wear it? No, never.

    And if would, i dont need it! :D

    I wore mascara once before while modeling. It was horribly while they putting on (my designer did it herself). But it was cool..... I wont wear mascara unless it's modeling or acting.
