Bloody Mary's Purple Mascara from Hot Topic

I want to say a couple of things about Hot Topic. First, I have read a couple of mentions of Hot Topic as "gothy" or for those who prefer "the darker side." Yet it's pretty much a raver's paradise. I kind of think that the only place that offers purple mascara and my favorite hair dye, Fish Bowl, along with a striking array of Lolita-inspired clothes and character undies is hardly dark. I'm just sayin.

Second, Bloody Mary's mascara pretty much sucks balls. It's kind of dry after a few uses and doesn't seem to have been produced by anyone with actual experience in cosmetics. That said, it's freaking purple mascara, and it does have a bit of a shimmery quality that makes that first use worth the eight bucks and the awkward conversation with the high school kids who think it's awesome you have rainbow hair at your age and your baby is rocking a onesie that says, "I think I just shit my pants."

True story.
