I’m not easily impressed when it comes to mascaras. For some reason, my lashes do not read the ads. They do not understand most “no clump” formulas and they certainly don’t behave when told to lengthen. But, when Too Faced Cosmetics sent over their newest creation, I was intrigued. I’ve tried 2 step systems before and I’m not a fan of the primer/mascara combo. It’s not for me. Too many steps, too much time working out clumps and trying to coax my lashes into a presentable position.
This, however, is something new. What it is (according to Sephora’s website): “A three-step lash extension system that includes an activating mascara base and top coat and Flexistretch™ nylon lash fibers.” The ads do go on a bit longer about the effects you will acheive and there are of course, the unbelievably fake looking yet ever present ad campaign photos that never depict what an actual human’s lashes ever look like. I didn’t read any of it. I didn’t compare my mere mortal lashes to the girl on the box with amazon fringe. I just decided to try it blindly, and this is what I experienced. Even though this is a 2 part / 3 step system, because the steps are simple and the formula goes on like butter, it’s not time consuming at all. My lashes were devilishly long, unclumpy, believable looking, thicker looking and at the end of the day it was easy to remove. Because this is not a waterproof formula I did have some movement, but not too bad and no flaking! I’m not sure how this formula would hold up on humid hot days or long dance-filled nights, but I certainly did look and feel quite glam while running errands.
Verdict: You need it!
Dramatically lengthens lashes without clumping, easy to use, easy to remove and makes you feel like a million bucks!
Does not contain: Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Phthalates, GMOs, Triclosan
Some movement throughout the day & pricy at $35
