O.k. Girls, I can use your help! I realized this morning that there must ONE mascara out there, that is accomplishing what the THREE I am currently using do! Bear in mind, that mascara is one of those places that I like to cheat, if at all possible, so if you got yours at Target or CVS , you have my rapt attention.
Here's why I am using three mascaras: I love slapping on the white primer of one half of Maybelline's XXL Pro Mascara. It visibly lengthens and thickens every lash, and if you apply mascara before it dries, the results are pretty magical. Unfortunately; this requires doing it in four stages, upper, lower, upper, lower and I don't care for the other half of the actual mascara that comes with this wand. My Bobbi Brown Everything Mascara has now died, so at my sister's urging, I picked up Revlon's Grow Luscious.
It's hard to dispute the potential benefit of a mascara that also helps grow and strengthen your existing lashes, but even after trying it with the aforementioned primer technique, they were anemic at best. My last step is Loreal's Telescopic Mascara. I genuinely love the benefits of using this mascara, (with the round ball tip in place of a traditional wand). It literally finds every lash and lengthens the lash tips to, well, telescopic lengths. Using it from the beginning on bare lashes, however, just doesn't pack the same punch.
So...whaddya say??? I would love a report on Maybelline's Volume Express, "The Falsies", stat, but I am open to any and all suggestions. Whats your favorite ONE? The light bulb just went off... I'm just now figuring out that the price of my three cheats is probably more money than any single mascara!!! Bring 'em on!!!
