Jazmine Sullivan - Mascara Lyrics

Yeah my hair, and my ass fake, but so what!
I get my rent payed with it, and my tits get me trips to places I can't pronounce right
He said he'd keep it coming, if I keep my body tight

And them bitches stay mad 'cause I'm living the life
‘Cause I'm living the life, oh
Most people think I'm shallow
‘Cause I'm always dressed like I'm going out to the club,
But I gotta keep up 'cause there's new chicks poppin' up every day
And they want the same things

So I never leave the house without make-up on,
I keep mascara in my pocket if I'm running to the market
‘Cause you never know who's watching you
So I got to stay on, I got to stay on
I got to stay on, I got to stay on
Said I got to stay on!

No, I ain't got a job but, so what!
I don't need it when I'm getting everything that I want, and everything that I ask for
I wear that freakum dress for daddy then he give me more

And them bitches stay mad 'cause they working so hard
While I'm working so smart, oh
It's a small price to pay when you're
living this good and he keep me in the hills,
and he kept me out the hood
‘Cause there's new chicks poppin' up
every day and they want the same things

So I never leave the house without make-up on,
I keep mascara in my pocket if I'm running to the market
‘Cause you never know who's watching you
So I got to stay on, I got to stay on
I got to stay on, I got to stay on
Said I got to stay on!

Now, I know why you're looking at me like that
It ain't attractive when you're looking at me like that,
Girl, don't be mad 'cause while you're
cooking dinner for your broke nigga
You could be in the gym working
on your figure like me. So...

Don't I deserve to be privileged?
Don't I deserve to get the very best?
‘Cause it ain't easy being this fine all the time,
‘Cause if it was, then we all could do it
But we can't now no
So bitch don't kill my vibe, don't be
mad cause you coach class and I'm in that G5.
Beautiful girls run the whole world,
So I got to stay on!

So I never leave the house without make-up on,
I keep mascara in my pocket if I'm running to the market
‘Cause you never know who's watching you
So I got to stay on, I got to stay on
I got to stay on, I got to stay on
Said I got to stay on!

Yeah, she drive the dope boys crazy
She knows, that all them hoes so jealous
'Cause that ass, will make a man leave home, uh
That's why she keeps her mascara on.

    This is my favorite Jazmine song cuz I love the song content, but these vocals. I love those deep, rich notes and I love how effortlessly she’s singing them even more.



  32. april bass

    2019 💥

  33. Sesa Bakenra

    If you attempt to sing this song, it will be obvious how difficult it is to go from the high to low notes and back again as swiftly as she does. Honestly, that's the best way to appreciate someone's talent, see if you can do it! She is so amazing <3

  34. Naira Mounilo

    You all can keep talking about satire all you want, but this sounds like a kept woman theme song. It’s brilliant, authentic, and I’m going to keep listening to it for how it speaks to me. I know what getting pretty can do. 🎵So I never leave the house without...🎵

    Instagram models 🤷🏽‍♀️

  84. Miss Glenda

    💚2019💜 #stilllistening to my baby!

  85. Tanika Nakeya Lewis

    Of very few individuals, her perspective is incorrect.

  86. Chanel HP

    She drives the doughboys crazy... and she knows it 😉😎

  87. Gets Eettg

    I don’t see it as entirely sarcastic. It’s just depicting the mentality of the style really well. It’s depicting the attractive part of the gold digging style but also the terrifying and insecure part of it. It’s just so smart

  88. Sovereign Principal

    Stay On regardless.. That's the point
    I Stay ON..

  89. Mahogany Grayson

    Still playing in 2019 🎶 💃🏽 ♥️ 🔥. I love her voice

  90. michael rodriguez


  91. AboutThat LIFE

    Who's here after watching the DeAndre Bonds car riding video?!?!?

  92. Tanea Samuels

    Lawd wen she says yeah my ass ND my hair fake 💕

  93. Angel M

    I love how she has character voices like Kendrick. Her vocal change gives you the tone of the message.

  94. j2sweet4words

    I am often amazed at people's blatant judgement of another person's life. I don't think this song was satirical. It was straightforward because this is literally the life that some women live in order to have what they want. No hate, just real. Staying super made-up all the time for a man is a job, does take lots of maintenance and is a lifestyle choice. She knows her relationship is superficial, as most sugarbabies do, which is why they put so much into their looks. Some women believe that they have to choose love or lifestyle. Some would flat out rather have a good lifestyle than love. Who are any of us to judge any of it? We don't have to live it, let them. I personally choose both.


    Omg im so happy i read this. The goal for so many women is to find affluent men and live a fancy live. And love is not their goal. But what if i want love?

  95. MaThuliza Goba

    Absolute Bliss..that Beat!

  96. D C

    She is a excellent writer
