John Kiesewetter " :uy:- . - A A ASS WW 0 ON MASCARA BYREON CARTER The Cincinnati Enquirer There's much ado about those stubby hairs that frame women's eyes. The search for the best products to lengthen, strengthen, plump and pump them up goes on. Mascara sales for 1994 totaled $400 million, according to Kline & Co., a Fairfield, N J.-based consulting firm. (It's third in makeup sales after foundationbases and lipstick.) No wonder cosmetics companies are going all out to tout new packaging, brushes and formulations to get their share of the pie. The basic straight or curved brush designs have been tweaked by varying bristle lengths and their positions on the wand. Many of the "revolutionary" concoctions are improved formulations with familiar ingredients rather than new, exotic ones. And some companies that have added exotic ingredients obviously did t so lor their psychological effect. Christian Dior included cashmere in its Diorcil Lengthening Mascara with Cashmere ($18) but in near negligible quantities. Why not lashes? If it works for the hairs on your head why not the lashes? That's the approach many companies such as Pre-scriptives, Origins and Elizabeth Arden have taken by adding ingredients such as pan- thenol (a moisturizer that penetrates the cortex of the lash) and keratin (which smooths out ridges on the lash surface) to the mix. Paula Begoun, a Seattle-based consumer reporter and author of Expensive name brands and drugstore varieties get put to the test Don't Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me (Beginning Press; . $13.95) doesn't think that extra lash conditioning is necessary. "Conditioners aren't going to make them grow any better," Ms. Begoun says. "With heavy moisturizers, you're bound to get more smearing. And if you think about it, who really wants silky, bouncy lashes?" Ms. Begoun, who has reviewed hundreds of makeup lines, says that when evaluating mascara, she looks for those that go on easily : and build thickness without ' clumping or smearing. , - Her top picks: Lancome's ' Intencils ($16) and Definicils jiji ' ' Mascaras, from left: Almay One Coat, $4.99; Maybelline Great Lash, $4.09; Lancome Intencils, $16; Ultima IIFalsies, $12; Christian Dior Diorcil, $18. ($16); L'Oreal's Lash Out ($5.95), Accentuous ($5.95) and Formula Riche ($5.95); Cover Girl's Professional mascara ($4.49); and May-belline's Illegal Lengths ($4.69). s The pits: Maybelline's Great Lash ($4.09), which is the industry sales leader and a favorite among fashion magazine beauty editors. "It smears too much," Ms. Begoun says. To avoid bacterial , contamination, it is recommended that opened mascara be replaced every three months. This can become expensive if you buy high-end mascara for $18-$20apop. Put to the test I put four of the offerings that are creating the most beauty buzz to the test to see how some of the more expensive brands compare with the drugstore offerings. For the record, Maybelline's -Great Lash Mascara is my mas-cara of choice. It goes on smoothly and evenly without clumping and builds to a defined but natural lash. And best of all, it's cheap. I haven't experienced any of the excessive smearing Ms. Begoun mentioned. (Because the finished effect is often dictated by what type of lashes you start with long and sparse; short and thick results might vary.) Intencils (Lancome, $16, .22 ounces) It comes in an attractive penlike case. The wand features an hourglass-shaped brush. I tried this mascara once before but obviously wasn't impressed enough to (Please see MASCARA, Page C6) Easier-to-use lash curlers .V', -ft. K The eyelash curler: Some swear by it while others dub it the lash eater. Although improper technique often is the culprit, it was easy to blame those old-fashioned metal curlers that remind one of torture devices for ripping out lashes. New curlers, such as Curl Up (by Preo, $28) have been streamlined for better control. The curling surface is smaller, which means small sections of lashes can be curled or just the tips. The Soft Touch Eyelash Curler (by Silverstar. $10) is made of a less intimidating, lightweight plastic, 'X. and as a result is easier to use. v Instead of "'J squeezing the handle, i it curls with "' a gentle pressing motion. Helpful curling tips: Only curl lashes that are dry so the curl stays in longer. Wait a few minutes after showering or washing face. Do not curl lashes with mascara on; it might cause lash breakage.

BURBANK, Calif. A gasp echoed throughout Stage 11 after the ending stunned the 175 people seated in bleachers watching the cast of Murphy Brown film an episode last week for February sweeps. "That was great how you gasped right on cue," said comedian Clair Burger, who has entertained the weekly studio audience for eight years. "Now see if you can do it again," she said as Candice Bergen, Joe Regalbuto, Charles Kimbrough, Faith Ford and Grant Shaud prepared to film the scene a second time. Our job in the studio audience, as Ms. Burger explained when we arrived three hours earlier, was to provide the laughs for the laugh track.

Whether that's true, none of us had any trouble delivering spontaneous bursts of laughter on this night, when Murphy Brown satirized the CBS controversy about killing a 60 Minutes story about cigarette smoking. "They wouldn't do this to Mike Wallace!" exclaimed newsman Frank Fonlana (Mr.' Regalbuto) when told that network executives who feared being sued had axed a tobacco story. Surprisingly, the line was just as funny the second and third time Fontana screamed it in (Please see MURPIW, Page C2) Piano concert Pianist Richard Morris performs music by Haydn and Chopin, 8 p.m., Mount Auburn Presbyterian Church, 103 William Howard Taft Road, Mount Auburn.
