Mascara Monday: Lash Control-Volume

| March 23, 2009 | 7 Comments

Happy happy Monday, family! Mascara Monday took a little break last week but we are up and running again and excited to bring you another mascara review.

Here is a brand that focuses strictly on mascara. I was able to meet with Jennifer from Lash Control at The Makeup Show LA and I had a wonderful time chit-chatting with her about all things mascaras. Of course I had to try one of the mascaras from Lash Control. I chose the lady in purple who represents volume.

Soooo….did it work?

Lash Control-Volume

Price: 2 out of 5 ($20 a little steep for the average mascara)
Packaging (Brush Wand): 5 out of 5
Overall: 4.5 out of 5
Bold
What it claims: “The mascara comes with a fitted, snap-down vinyl “baggie” for added protection inside your make-up bag. The extra inch of distance provided by the flexible wiper offers another barrier to air and foreign particle contact with the formula which make the mascara perform better and for a longer period of time.(source)

The truth: Wow! The squeezable tube is pretty cool. No more globs of mascara coming out of the tube.

What I loved about it:
I love the wand. It makes mascara application easy and effortless.

I also liked how weightless two coats of mascara felt on my lashes.

What I didn’t like:
I wish I would have achieved a little more volume.

Overall: Lash Control is a mascara brand that has mascaras specifically for certain needs. Need a waterproof mascara? They have it. Desire curl? They got you covered? Seeking length? Look no futher. I am glad to see a mascara company that tries to cover all of the issues that we have with mascara application and performance. The “flexible wiper sleeve” is incredibly useful.

In the past, I have gotten so irritated with mascara wands that pull out TOO much mascara. You end up having to wipe it along the edges of the mascara tube or wipe it on a tissue. Both actions are unsanitary so in a sense this mascara is helping you keep the germs at bay as well as allowing your mascara to last a little longer.

The idea is ingenious and it works flawlessly.

As far as the mascara, I wished that I got a little more volume. Just a tad bit more. But I won’t complain too much because what I got after only two coats is absolutely beautiful!

Enjoy your Monday, family!

Always,
