It might be time to start looking for a replacement for the $7 dollar Lash Stylist by Maybelline, since I haven’t been given a def. answer as to the fate of my utmost favorite mascara. So here is a list of comb mascaras I am willing to try and maybe some of you already have.. please post a comment if you like or hate any of these!!
Macy’s says: Sculpt your lashes with exceptional volume. Glamorous lashes to die for. Instantly power up lashes to over-the-top, voluptuous volume. Unique Ampliform 3D Comb coats and sculpts with one dip and a single stroke. Filtex™ formula with Silicone wraps lashes in Lancôme’s most potent volume ever.
My thoughts: It got good reviews on Macys.com and also was an Insider’s Choice beauty winner. I really like the fact that the brush has a short side and a long side.. I guess one for application and one for combing the product through the lashes. The only down side is that it’s $23 bucks.. quite a lot more than I want to spend on a mascara.
My thoughts: I’ve never liked any Clinique mascara that I’ve tried through the many, many years that my mother has brought home the “free gift” bags from Macy’s. I always felt like the mascara was really watery and left my lashes limp and wimpy. Who knows, maybe they have changed?? Unfortunately when you try on mascara in the store, they give you a default wand, and you won’t be able to get the full effects of the mascara.
Macy’s says: Transform your eyes…with a true-false lash effect.Create designer lashes in just two easy steps! Step 1: Define & Lengthen. The patented Hi-Pro Stretch Brush™ instantly lengthens and defines true lashes.Step 2: Custom Design Lash EffectThe new exclusive Design Pro™ Mini Comb enhances hard-to-reach outer corner lashes for a beautiful, wide-eyed, false-lash look.
My thoughts: Ok.. this is just ridiculous. $35 dollars?!?!?! Ok, does this thing also do liposuction? I am freaking out over here. Although the product got excellent reviews, I am still like mouth-dropping pissed.. why is it so expensive??? Because the “mini-comb” is trademarked? Give me a break. Please prove to me that this is worth the money and I might invest in a few tubes. Post pics. I need to see this to believe it.
NEXT.. on to face shimmers.
My Thoughts: Now this is something worth spending a little money on! Not only can you wear this as a necklace.. a freaking Dior necklace.. but inside is a creamy golden highlighter that you can use on your eyes, lips and cheeks. The whole thing is all wrapped up in a nice travel pouch. Cute gift, cute gift for yourself! I think this is a must-have for Dior fans!
Sephora says: Dior Night Diamond is a true makeup jewel that gives every face mega-star power. The silky powder is laced with shimmer and imparts an all-over shimmer. The ebony compact is studded with crystal-like gems and is paired with a plush brush, both of which are tucked in a black suede pouch.
My thoughts: To die for. I love the jeweled case, love the brush, beautiful powder. Something you would feel proud to use and pull out of your makeup bag. Nice summer product!!
Sephora says: Laura Mercier Mosaic Shimmer Bloc contains light-reflecting properties that blend together to give the skin a healthy all-over glow. Arriving in a fresh, floral design, it adds a youthful, natural glow to the face for an effortlessly luminous, fresh look.
My thoughts: I am a total sucker for cute stuff, and this is adorable! Laura Mercier is famous for their shimmer blocks / bricks, whatever you want to call them, so I am assuming this is just as good as the award-winning shimmer products they have had in the past. Plus, you can probably use the pink color as a blush, so it’s a multi-use product, which is good! Price isn’t too bad, but I think these compacts will last a really long time.
