Eyelashes are my life.
I live and breath eyelashes.
For a girl who makes a living doing eyelash extensions, it just hit me; I know absolutely nothing about mascara! For the past 4 and a half sweet, sweet years, my lovely eyelash extensions have saved so much hassle of dealing with the messy black goop. Making the switch back over has been a fear of mine for a long time. 😦
Mascara’s are tricky. You get a brush that’s too fat, it smudges across your eyelids. One too thin and it’s not enough coverage. Many are too clumpy, some watery, not waterproof enough, and others so waterproof it practically rips your lashes out getting it off! Not to mention it takes forever to get them looking real fly and can be expensive to test them out.
Since I assume to be testing many products in the near future, I hope my discoveries will be able to benefit those of you scouring the mascara market as well.
For Christmas, a good friend of mine hit me with the Trish McEvoy Lash Curling Mascara. I was super excited to try it as it claimed to naturally curl the lashes and read “better than waterproof” on the box…whatever that means. Turns out to be a 360 degree mascara which dries instantly as it forms a tube around your entire lash . Though my lashes didn’t look as thick as I typically like, I do have to admit the tubular aspect of it was really nice. No smearing! 🙂 I even slept with it on to find out if I’d look like a raccoon in the morning (Well…partially that and partially because I was just too lazy to take it off). Upon waking up, there were other animals I may have resembled, but a raccoon was not one of them! As for the curling aspect, it did not create a sizable curl; it did however make them decently noticeable. Not necessarily the greatest mascara if your goal is thick and dramatic. Seems more like the perfect mascara to match a morning on the run. For less make-up and little hassle, this would be a fantastic option!
