The Promise of Seriously Long Lashes

I think I can safely say that we have all been promised much only to be disappointed. This is especially true when it comes to our humble mascara. Lashes that flutter and stretch out are amongst the most sought-after feature.

During my search for the nearly perfect mascara, I have found a few that are really a head above the others, whilst many others have left me thin and lack-luster.

There is a drugstore mascara that I have been thrilled with. Maybelline's Define-A-Lash Waterproof Lengthening Mascara does not cost a fortune. What is fortunate about it is that it holds a curl extremely well. Albeit the color is not the intense black that I prefer, the mascara is light-weight and works on those days that I wish to wear my lashes naturally colored, seriously long and curled. The brush can be a little fidgety because it is flexible and shaped differently than others. However, the formula has yet to fail me in the smudge department and it is a great asset to have alongside my favorite Imju (Dejavu) Fiberwig mascara.

Application Tip:

1. Start with curled lashes.

2. Find the concave side of the brush and place the entire length of that side of the brush along the base of your lashes, using less pressure than you would normally apply to let the brush flex around the curve of your lash line. Zig-zag up from the base of your lashes to the tips.

3. Next, find the slightly convex side of the brush. Use this side of the brush to extend the tips of the lashes by brushing upwards at the tips without zig-zagging.
