I have the secret combination for GREAT lashes...
on May 31, 2012
I'm one of those suckers (or at least I used to be) who bought EVERY new mascara that I saw on the commercials. I've never been one to buy expensive cosmetics, so I've always gone to the drugstore to try out all the different brands. About 3 years back, I stumbled on L'Oreal's Telescopic Mascara at kmart and decided to give it a try...and I'm so happy I did. I already have pretty long lashes, but I was looking for something that would lengthen them a little further and would also separate and NOT clump. I really liked the lengthening/separating aspects of this mascara, but it doesn't do much to make your lashes look thicker. I should also mention that I'm really big on pairing mascaras, meaning that I like to use two different kinds at once: one to thicken, and one to lengthen. Any mascara I've ever tried that claims to do both, indeed, does NOT. Sooooo, after I found this lengthening mascara back three years go, I started searching for a thickening mascara that would work well with it. Lo and behold, a few months back, I found Maybelline's Volum'Express One by One mascara, also available on amazon (and it's quite cheap!):
I apply the Maybelline first, and then, immediately after, apply the L'oreal Telescopic. Together, they cost about $15, which I think is pretty awesome. So yay! Definitely try these two as a duo, and I promise, you won't be disappointed.
