LASHley: Part 2

How is it possible that LASHley, a girl who has parody Twitter accounts dedicated to her eyelashes, has yet to recommend her favorite mascaras? I don’t know. It’s quite strange it’s taken so long. Obviously, mascara is magical. It’s so magical that it’s signature tool is called a wand. 🙂 I believe they called it a wand because with a couple of flicks of the wrist a girl can be transformed. She can go from pauper to princess, just like Cinderella *wink, wink.* If CVS was actually the Harry Potter wand shop, these would be the top-of-the-line wands packing the most power.

I believe mascara quality doesn’t increase with mascara cost. I think if you’re going to buy a makeup product from the drug store, make it mascara. This mascara is great for lengthening and separating. One coat in “blackest black” and then let it dry before moving onto the next mascara. Don’t confused the word “coat” with “swipe.” A coat means fully covering each lash and it usually requirers more than one pump of the wand.

The Go-To

When it comes to drugstore brand mascara, you belong to one of two classic teams: ‘L Oreal’s Voluminous or Maybelline’s Great Lash. For years, I did just NOT understand Great Lash. It’s good for a natural look, but HA, we all know that’s not my style. I respect it for daytime makeup and I usually even have a tube in my makeup case. I now think it’s good for a thin defining layer over my lash extensions. However, I’ve always and will remain Tean Voluminous. Voluminous (in “Blackest Black) does exactly what it sounds like it does. It gives your lashes a total volume blast. It builds well too. So let the first layer dry and then about 15 minutes after the first coat, reapply. This only applies to natural lashes. Girls with extensions, stick to one coat. Let’s not get too crazy.

*Note* I’m not a huge fan of waterproof mascara unless you’re actually swimming or going to a summer concert. Despite popular opinion, I do not normally hit the beach or the pool with makeup on. Removing waterproof mascara results in too many lost lashes.

As a true pisces, I live in a magical and delusional land in my head. In this world romances unfold the way they do in romantic comedies, everything at Sephora is free, Shake Shake burgers are a diet food, and we have the capability to clone Harry Styles.

In real life (what's that?), I spend my days pondering how Kylie Jenner's face changed so much. I'm a beauty junkie and pop culture-loving wedding videographer and freelance journalist. I have a Princess Jasmine complex. I am a Fanson (die hard Hanson fan). I enjoy belting old Celine Dion songs.

Please take everything I say seriously (I have my Masters in journalism from Syracuse University), but not too seriously (Cosmo is my favorite publication.)
