1. It's a nice gimmick that has people talking about a brand older than rock'n'roll whose target audience just turned 20.
2. It recognizes a loyal customer -- drag queens.

Notice something off about this? Maybe he’s born with it, or maybe it’s Maybelline. Or maybe it’s that pube-esque beard they slathered in cakey, matte foundation in a poor attempt at distracting from the grossness, deriving directly from their shemale model having a penis. Either way, Manny’s gay o’clock shadowed face doesn’t exactly hit home with Maybelline’s target audience. As a regular woman, this sod’s eyelashes aren’t going to sell me on the newest mascara. It has zero appeal because women can’t relate to NOT SO MANLY MANNY. We want to look like Kate Moss… Not the glitter-bombed, hairy underside of a potato.Good point. The model looks more metrosexually weak. Low energy.
Drag queens want to look like a strong woman. Barbra Streisand. Wendy Williams. Julie Newmar.
Maybelline is not even breaking ground. Cover Girl went Cover Boy in October.
Frankly, I do not care if a guy wants to look like a girl, or if a guy wants to be a metrosexual. Their business, not mine.
But nevertheless, I stand with any conservative sisters who want to boycott Maybelline -- or Cover Girl.
Just don't ask me to give up my Old Spice.
OK, I appreciate this nonsense about Maybelline for a third reason. I don't have to think about Dylann Roof, the Chicagoans who humiliated the retarded kid, or the gunman at Fort Lauderdale Airport. The first and the last are advertisements for the death penalty. I don't know what to do about the middle group.
Pray for America.
Don't worry about men with mascara.
Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
It covers the nomination process only. The general election will be covered in a sequel.
