One of the most defeating moments I’ve ever experienced as a human being is accidently stabbing myself in the eye with my mascara wand. Not only does it delay my makeup routine by at least 10 minutes, it also causes uncontrollable tears and serious self-reflection about my makeup capabilities. If you haven’t had the unfortunate experience of stabbing yourself directly in your eyeball (LUCKY), I’m positive you’re part of the I-sneezed-after-putting-on-mascara club, which is almost as annoying.

Clearly, we’ve all had our share of beauty blunders (see: #MakeupFails), and as simple putting on mascara seems there’s definitely still room for straight up failure. We took to the Internet to round up some of the best #MascaraFails to ever happen. See all eight of our favorite tweets, ahead, to know that you are not alone.
