So, everyone knows what a fool I am for mascara. I have to have it. Yep, mascara is on my top 5 list of must-have beauty items. I think I would even forego deodorant in lieu of mascara.
And, I have a very high standard of must-haves for my mascara. It must have everything—lengthening, curling, lifting, volumizing, separating…
Recently I was sent Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara to review. And I have to tell you, Mary Kay has once again proven to me that it isn’t about stuffy ladies trying to get a pink Cadillac. Not that there is anything wrong with a pink Caddie — if someone gives me one, I will bling out the rims and rollllllllll.
Back to Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara... I’m in love with it. Love. I was totally shocked at how lovely this mascara is. But before I get my rave going, here are the details about it:
- Flake-, Smudge- and clump-resistant.
- Mary Kay® Panthenol-Pro Complex™ helps condition lashes and helps defend against breakage.
- Ophthalmologist-tested and suitable for contact lens wearers.
- Water-resistant formula.
Never thought I would like Mary Kay mascara much less love it. But I should have known better, after all, I have probably independently sold more of their concealer than they know. Read my review here. Back to mascara…
I love the wand. It’s not too fat—nothing against fat. But those humongous wands always deposit mascara on my eyelids and are tough for getting the tiny inside eyelashes. Not so with Lash Love.
It lengthens. Major lengthening folks. I mean, one coat and my lashes were up on my hooded eyelids like nobody’s business. Two coats and it was over! Lashes galore. Happy girl.
It volumizes. I like thick, full lashes. Not skinny ones. I can do that on my own. Lash love gives just the right amount of oomph to your lashes so that they are full and luxurious.
It lifts and curls. I have straight lashes. I mean straight as in where are they? But with my first coat of Lash Love, it was like HELLO?!? Two coats and my lashes were looking at my eyebrows. I’m talking Lash Love.
It separates. With most mascaras I have to do that little comb thing to get “natural” looking lashes. Well, you can just skip that little step with Lash Love. They are all separated and fluffy and pretty.
It’s not crunchy. I hate putting on mascara and when I touch it, it feels like I have a coat of lacquer on them. Not the case with Lash Love. My lashes were soft and bendable. Love that.
My eyes were not irritated. I am going through a terrible time with my eyes right now, and being a “cosmetic tester” has been getting the best of me. But, when using Lash Love I had no tearing or burning at all. Big plus!
The product also claims that it conditions lashes and prevents breakage, which I believe. When removing this mascara, I lose no lashes and they are soft and pliable after.
