LASH-BROW-INE IS BORN!!!!
Tom Lyle Williams, formed Maybell Laboratories and Lash-Brow-Ine's first little ad, appeared in The Police Gazette magazine.
From the looks of what was going on at the time, you'd think there would be a slim chance for Lash-Brow-Ine, to be accepted, but women were ripe for expressing themselves, and the product took off way beyond Tom Lyle, Noel and Mabel's greatest expectations.
Read the whole wonderful saga, in The Maybelline Story. Signed copies with Hedy Lamarr make-up bag will be available very soon.
