Oh how I wish I was born with long, dark and fluttery lashes! Having pin straight and blonde eyelashes means that they are basically invisible unless I give them a good curl and a coat (or seven) of mascara. There are thankfully ways to grow your lashes naturally (see here for what I am currently using), however mascara is always a necessary step for me to really make them stand out. I haven't had much luck with volumizing mascaras in the past which is why I prefer lengthening ones, but I'm always game to put either one to the test. Enter the Make Up For Ever Excessive Lash Mascara*, said to bring instant volume and definition thanks to its clump-free formula.
The Excessive Lash Mascara comes with a thin double-fiber brush: flexible red fibers apply an even coat, while white rigid fibers separate and add volume. I've always been a big fan of rubber brushes (they seem to be more effective on my thin unruly lashes as documented here), but when I read up on this specific brush I was hopeful I would see a significant improvement. The ultra-black and buildable formula, made with both carnauba wax and beeswax and a unique oil blend, is said to create a dramatic effect without flaking throughout the day.
