It’s no secret that I’m a bit of a mascara junkie. I don’t like wearing a lot of makeup, but mascara is a staple, especially as I consider my eyes to be one of my best (physical) features. And I have long lashes, so I’m always looking for something that will add volume. Everything else – curling, lengthening, etc. – come as a bonus.
When going through a bit of extra trouble and adding gel/liquid liner, I’ve often been asked if my lashes are my own or falsies. Yeah, I’m bragging, because this is one thing I can be boastful about, because it’s not of my doing.
However, if you have lashes that are less than spectacular, you don’t have to resort to false lashes; instead, get a mascara that creates the false lash illusion. One of my latest finds, and now on the top five list of favourites, is essence LASH mania reloaded mascara.
I prefer traditional mascara brushes, but LASH mania’s innovative elastomer brush with a star-shaped arrangement of blades, which accurately grips your lashes to give them a push-up effect, has won me over. And since I love layering my mascara, the fact that the brush offers perfect separation rocks my world.
The LASH mania formula is not clumpy and is opthalmologically tested. My favourite aspect of all essence products is of course that it is affordable and readily available at leading stores.
