I am and always have been the eyelash/mascara girl all the way through… I love long, thick eyelashes because they make your eyes to pop. To achieve this effect we need a really good serum to make our eyelashes stronger and longer as well as good mascara, which adds the volume and length without any clumps.
My favourite at the moment are Extra Lengthening Black Mascara Showgirl and Extra Volume Black Mascara Showgirl by Barry M, a British brand, famous for its cruelty free, high quality, beautiful products at affordable prices. I’m using those two mascaras together, starting with an Extra Lengthening and then I apply Extra Volume one. You can use them separately but I think they work fantastically together. I work the brush at different angels starting from the inner corner of the eye going outwards. It gives you a really long and enchanting eyelashes, perfect for parties and big events.
If you are looking for a more natural look for your eyelashes and a bit of conditioning at the same time, I would recommend Lush Eyes Right mascara with a wheatgrass, which has got anti-oxidant properties and is full of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and proteins. Lush is a 100% vegetarian, handmade brand, which fights animal testing. This mascara is brilliant for sensitive eyes and contact lenses wearers, like me. It gives me really beautiful, long lasting all day lashes without any clumps and it washes off really easy with just a cleanser. The only minus is the brush, which is too short and doesn’t give you a chance to go over all the lashes effectively making the whole process a bit massy. To help the situation I’ve decided to use the disposable mascara brushes, which are longer and much more effective.
Another natural mascara is Benecos Natural Beauty Vegan Volume Natural Mascara (magic black), with vitamin E. It has been claimed by many people that vitamin E oil helps to promote eyelash growth to make them thicker and longer. This mascara is an ideal daily one. It gives me naturally long, clumps free, nicely separated lashes. Benecos Natural Beauty is a trendy and none expensive brand, which makes products with natural, organic ingredients, not tested on animals and certified by BDIH (non profit association of certified natural cosmetics, based in Germany). This brand has got ranges of natural make-up, nails, skincare, body and hair products.
While I’m talking about eyelashes, I have to say few things about one truly fantastic award winning serum for the eyelashes, which I’ve been using for many years now: RapidLash Eyelash & Eyebrow Enhancing Serum. This serum has been clinically proven to be safe and effective to boost the look of the eyelashes. It is paraben, fragrance free and not tested on animals. The key to effectiveness of this product is in its formula: HEXATEIN® 1 COMPLEX , which contains of six ingredients (for example: polypeptides against breakages; soybean oil to give a gloss to eyelashes; pumpkin seed extract to enhance the appearance of lashes etc.). I’ve started using this product after I took off my eyelash extensions and noticed that my lower eyelashes were longer that the upper one (it was always the other way around). After doing a bit of research I’ve got my RapidLash Serum and never looked back. It took only one month to notice a dramatic difference.
This product is not the cheapest one but worth every penny because it is doing what’s been promised. My eyelashes look really long, beautiful and I receive a lot of compliments about them. This is my must have product! It’s been more than one year now since I’ve been using this product taking breaks only every now and then and I’ve never again put on an eyelash extensions. When I buy my serum I use it every day in the evening after make-up removal and cleansing, applying to the base of the upper eyelashes.
Embrace your beautiful eyes!
