I wasn't aware until recently that you could still buy this! Marilyn Monroe apparently used Longcils Boncza cake mascara. Nowdays it's
Catherine Z Jones among others. It contains beeswax and rosewater, which has to be better for your lashes. Other brands that have cake mascaras are Paula Dorf, Isadora and Lola Cosmetics.

I'm not happy with the modern tube mascaras so I'm going to try to find one of these brands over here!

I wonder if BeneFit and/or Urban Decay have it? Or Stilla? Seems the sort of thing they might. Benefit has a cake eyeliner I like a lot ...for some reason, I can manage that, and any variety of liquid (I use the cake as liquid -- just add a drop of water, and apply with thin brush), but I can't do pencils....I find they never ever go on smoothly, no matter the brand.

ITA, I gave up pencil eyeliner when I worked for MAC and got hooked on their cake stuff...it really is amazing.
Max Factor did a cake mascara, but they've recently tried to reinvent the brand, with Carmen Electra as spokesmodel, and basically ruined it.

but keep looking, because I know it's out there!

Carmen Electra? Eeeek! The original Max Factor is spinning in his grave! I suppose you can't expect much when even Revlon is Not What It Used To Be. I'm awfully surprised they still make Fire and Ice.

I don't know what my problem is with pencils -- I have a hand tremor (sometimes it's really bad), and I think that's part of the problem, but it doesn't make much sense that my hand would be so much steadier using cake or liquid.

I can't use eyeliner at all. I end up looking like someone punched me in the eye. Instead, I use eye shadow as a liner. Seems to work well. Especially on the lower lid as it looks softer.

I have that in brown, but I'm a redhead; I prefer their tube mascara in copper, but it's hard to find, and very pricey.

For full-out vintage, though, I use the brown cake. BTW, I like to spray a little rosewater on it, instead of plain water.

Stilla makes copper mascara in a tube. I have some, but oddly, although a redhead with very fair skin, my brows and lashes are quite dark, and black-brown looks better on me.

Would you believe people have accused me as not being a REAL redhead (meaning either i have a dye job, or that I'm some sort of Lesser Being) because my brows and lashes aren't terribly fair? Hmmmph. Snots.

I was born strawberry blonde, but my hair darkened to a very dark chestnut brown.

I'm definately not a natural redhead now, though most people are startled to find I was brunette...black Irish, though.
