A whole blog about one mascara? YES! I have always loved to experiment with different brands of makeup, but have held true to M.A.C for so long. They have had the best mascara I could find for my specific lashes and I have always loved it.
When I was a young gal, I had gorgeous long black lashes, the kind people ask if they're real. At the time it wasn't a big deal, but now that I'm older and they just aren't the same, I wish I still had them.
Anyway, when I'm not wearing falsies, M.A.C. Zoom and Pro Lash have been my tried and true. Yes, both of them. I have had to layer my mascara with different types to achieve these lashes. I need lengthening and thickening and curl and the blackest black ever! There have been times when I have worn 4 different brands at once. Which was complete HELL when I got Conjunctivitis, that was a lot of cash to throw in the trash! At any rate...you can see what I go through for my lashes from my adolescence.
Just recently I went into Sephora to pick out some birthday gifts for myself (someone else was footing the bill), so it was my opportunity to try new shit. I have always heard of Make Up For Ever, but it always just seemed so Pro/Special FX to me (I don't know why...silliness). Not long ago I picked up the perfect red lipstick by Make Up For Ever and I adorrrrred it! Granted it was a little pricey, but really, for the right color, it's worth it. So on this shopping trip I wanted to grab a new mascara and thought I'd try their new Smokey Lash. For some reason my expectations were low. They only had one kind of mascara, only one color, and it was only sold at Sephora. When I got it home and opened it I wasn't to impressed with the brush, but it was worth trying.
When I put on that mascara the heavens opened and the angels sang!!! Thee most magnificent mascara I have EVER used!!! I am so hooked!!! It gives the lash volume, length, curl, and super black pigment. I only had to use ONE mascara to achieve my 16 year old lashes! Now I will say, it does get a little flaky at the end of the day, but I have a nervous habit of playing with my lashes, so if you don't you're golden!!!
If you are interested in trying this fantastic product, like I said it's a bit pricey, but worth it! It is Smokey Lash and its $22 and you can find it at www.sephora.com exclusively. Happy lashing!!!
