If you have been reading my blog for a while, you will know that I love reviewing new mascaras. My favorites are ones that lengthen, volumize and do not smudge. A tall order? Perhaps, but I think I found a mascara that provides all three.
It is d.j.v. beautenizer Volume Lash mascara ($24.00). This mascara, available in Pure Black, claims that it volumizes, conditions and smudge-proofs each and every lash. Volume Lash’s versatile volume sculpting brush is designed to hold plenty of its new, 3D film-coating formula to cover and condition all your lashes with nourishing oils. This quick dry formula prevents lashes from clumping while giving you an all day smudge-free look. Of course, when you’re ready to remove Volume Lash at the end of the day, all you need is warm water. It’s fuss-free.
I love that this mascara does volumize plus lengthen. It also doesn’t smear, but flakes a bit at the end of the day. Removal is a bit tough, you need lots of water to get it all off. Makeup wipes do not work on it. But, if you want a dramatic look, this product delivers!
This is available exclusively in Sephora, Sephora inside JCPenney and Sephora Canada.
It’s Fall (almost)! Time to try a new mascara! Of course, I think it’s always time to try a new mascara. But if you not only want to try a new mascara, but want to try a cool hi-tech one, try d.j.v. beautenizer Fiberwig LX ($, from the best selling mascara manufacturer in Japan, Imju Corporation. If you think the name is long, it does not compare to the extreme lengths this technologically advanced formula will take your lashes. Beginning August 2010, available in Pure Black, d.j.v. beautenizer Fiberwig LX will be sold exclusively in Sephora, Sephora inside JCPenney and Sephora Canada.
The claim: Fiberwig LX’s unique fiber enriched film coating formula lengthens while conditioning lashes. The formula contains conditioning oils with panthenol, natural silk and botanical extracts that work to maintain healthy and resilient lashes. The crescent shaped brush conforms to each and every lash, even those hard to reach corners and the tiniest of lashes, not to mention the lower lashes. Generous amounts of fibers perfectly encapsulate lashes from root to tip, extending lashes to eyebrow reaching lengths. With Fiberwig LX’s innovative staying power you can forget about smudging and those dreaded raccoon eyes. Best of all, it removes with just warm water.
What I think: It’s really cool that I can see all of the fibers on the brush before I apply. This lengthens pretty well and separates each lash – no clumping! The only thing that I don’t like is that it is heavy on my lashes and weighs them down. I have to curl my lashes because they are stick straight, and this mascara kills my curl. But if you want a nice natural, separated look, this will give it to you!
