Mascara in one form or another has been around since the Egyptians circa 4,000 BC !
Eugene Rimmel, a French perfume magnate, was the first to commercially market
mascara in the 1830s, and his name is still the word for "mascara" in some languages.
Modern mascara was created in 1913 by a chemist named T. L. Williams for his sister,
Mabel. This early mascara was made from coal dust mixed with Vaseline Petroleum
Jelly. The product was a success with Mabel, and Williams began to sell his new product
through the mail. His company, Maybelline, a combination of his sister's name and
Vaseline, eventually became a leading cosmetics company.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
