Mascara Monday: Too Faced Lash Injection

Ohmigoodness….the weekend seriously flies by for me. I really don’t understand. Grrr! Yes, I have the Monday Morning blues but despite that I have brought you our Mascara Monday. This series is where we highlight and review mascaras in attempts to find the world’s BEST mascara. Which may or may not exist. Either way, I love experimenting. I pushed this mascara up because of the overwhelming requests I got. Was it worth the hype?

Too Faced Lash Injection

Price: 2 out of 5 ($19.50….dang! They do have a smaller version for $8.50)

Packaging (Brush Wand): 2 out of 5

Overall: 4 out of 5

What it claims: “Get the look of lash extensions without the cost or commitment. Our 3D lash coating technology is so effective fake lashes will be a thing of the past.”

The truth: can’t compare it to any other mascara…which is a good thing!

What I loved about it: It did a really good job at giving my lashes volume. The first time I used it I didn’t achieve any spectacular lashes so I tried again with my eye lash curler and a mascara primer and saw great results! The volume factor is insane! This mascara also has a very pleasant smell. Can’t quite put my finger on what it is but I’m lovin’ it. I also love the way that it comes off; similar to that Imju Fiberwig! Wet your fingertips, massage your eyelashes and…..viola! It comes off. So much easier than traditional mascara. Loves it!

What I didn’t like: I hate those big brushes with undefined bristles. It literally drives me nuts! I think they contribute the the clumps that mascara can often give you. Smaller brushes means smaller bristles which means less product on the wand. Less product means better distribution and less clumps. Big brushes=death. Seriouslyyyyy. So yes, I did experience some clumping. It also didn’t last long for me. My lashes seemed to be “weighed down” towards the end of the day. I like mascaras that last alllllll for hours since I don’t re-apply throughout the day.

Would I purchase again?: Probably. More than likely I would purchase the smaller tube and apply it over my current HG mascara. I recommend this mascara for those looking for crazy volume. And if you already have length to your natural lashes….you will love Too Faced Lash Injection!

Mascara Monday: Prescriptives Beyond Long

Hi beautiful people!! And happy Monday to all of you. I know, I’ve been a bit ghost, but as promised I will be up on my game bringing your wonderful posts beautiful fabulousness alllll week. As usual, we are going to kick off our week with a Mascara Monday. Today we will feature:

Prescriptives Beyond Long




Price: 2 out of 5 (I got it for $19.50 at Macy’s in International Mall in Tampa Bay)

Packaging (Brush Wand): 5 out of 5

Overall: 3 out of 5

What it claims: “Get lashes nothing short of spectacular. Beyond Long Maximum Length Mascara extends lashes up to 40% longer. A sleek wand wraps lashes in rich color instantly lengthening and separating each to create dramatic definition. It’s eye drama all the way, without a flake, clump, or smudge in sight…”

The truth: Well, it does length your lashes but it didn’t impress me too much.

What I loved about it: I absolutely adooooore the brush. Scroll back up and check out that picture. That is EXACTLY how it looks in person. It has nice and thin bristles and the end of the mascara wand is “squared” off so you don’t get that nasty clumpy bit of mascara juice on the end. Yall know what I’m talkin’ about, right? I loathe that. This is my ideal type of brush. But that is where the joy for this mascara ends for me. By itself, it isn’t anything spectacular. I noticed a bit of length in my lashes but nothing to jump up and down about. I tried using it with one of my favorite mascaras and if still was just “eh”….which is why I gave the mascara just an
“average” score. The packaging however is just gorgeous. The bottle is beautiful and has a nice soft grippy thing to help you with your overall application. Which I liked.

Would I purchase again?: Probably not. The price is a bit too steep for me for a mascara and it just didn’t do anything for me. But I’m not against trying Prescriptives mascaras again if I’m looking to blow some money. And is it sad that one of the reasons is because their tubes are so sexy? Haaaa!!

What do you think about this mascara? Have you tried it and liked it? How much is too much for a mscara? If you’ve sent me an email requesting a particular mascara to review, I haven’t forgotten about you. I have a looong list. Keep sendin’ me reviews at Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com

Mascara Monday: Imju Fiberwig

Happy happy Monday! Please excuse my ghost-ness. I went to Tampa to visit some fam and I saw my Grandmother. I haven’t seen her since I graduated from high school!! It was a big deal to see her beautiful face and snuggle up next to her. Loves it. Next week I’m headed to Miami to visit the other Grandmother. I’m so blessed. Hope that you all had a wonderful looooong weekend. Let’s get goin’ on the mascara review.

Imju Fiberwig



Price: 3 out of 5 (I got it for $22 at Sephora)
Packaging (Brush Wand): 4 out of 5
Overall:
5 out of 5


What it claims:Fiberwig Mascara represents Imju’s superior quality and hi-tech approach to cosmetics; a mascara that replicates the illusion of false eyelashes..”

The truth: I wouldn’t say that it gives you an illusion of false eyelashes, but I have never seen my lashes look so full and long.


What I loved about it: Imju is a Japanese cosmetics company that is known for their innovative cosmetics. I first heard about Fiberwig from one of my favorite beauty bloggers: Grayburn. She fell in love with this mascara and now I see why. I think my video may do a better job at explaining just HOW it works but when I tell you it is the most amazing thing I have ever tried….I ain’t lyin’. Fiberwig contains, I guess “fibers” that attach to your lashes and with each stroke you can length your lashes.. Contact wearers and sensitive eyes’ folx, don’t fret. These fibers don’t come anywhere near the eyes. It takes some practice getting used to Fiberwig. I prefer long outer lashes so I concentrated there. I also looooved taking the mascara off. With just a dab of water on your fingers and massaging your lashes, it comes off. It’s so easy that it is actually fun. Even if you are satisfied with your current mascara or in love with your natural lashes, this is a product that you just HAVE to try.

Mascara Monday: Maybelline Define-A-Lash

It’s another Mascara Monday, ladies. Mascara Mondays is when we show tribute to the star of the blog in attempts to find *drum roll*…..the best mascara ever! Today I will be reviewing Maybelline’s Define-A-Lash.

Price: 5 out of 5
Packaging (Brush Wand):5 out of 5
Overall: 2 out of 5

What it claims: “This zero clump mascara creates stunning length with clean definition.


The truth: I mean, it’s just okay. Nothing spectacular.


What I loved about it: I love the lime green packaging. Sounds silly but I love pretty tubes. The formula claims to be washable and it actually lives up to that.

What I didn’t like: I hate that flippin’ brush. And it was a bit clumpy.

Overall: Wellll, I don’t know. This mascara is just didn’t do it for me. I have to admit though, it did give me great definition. The brush takes a quite bit of getting used to. I found that it was too flimsy and didn’t give me the control that my clumsy self usually needs when applying mascara. Plus it was a bit too flaky and clumpy for me. Booooo.

Here’s the video review.



What do you think about this mascara? Have you tried it and liked it?

Stay tuned for next week’s Mascara Monday when I review, in my opinion, the most innovative mascara ever!

Mascara Monday: Maybelline the Colossal Volum’ Express

Happy happy Monday! I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend! Thanks for voting on the next reviewed mascara. The Colossal one this time around but don’t worry Define-A-Lash ladies….I’ll be reviewing that one next week. So did the Colossal live up to its name?

Maybelline the Colossal


Price: 6 out of 5 (I got it for $6.99 from CVS)
Packaging (Brush Wand): 3 out of 5
Overall:
4 out of 5


What it claims:Megabrush instantly zooms on 9x the volume in one stroke, without clumps.”

The truth: Hey hey!! I like this! As a waterproof mascara, it is a bit difficult to take off but it’s not half bad.


What I loved about it: It really separated my lashes. Like amazingly. I love it!

What I didn’t like: The brush is a little bigger than I like. And it is a bit flaky, but nothing that I can’t handle.

Overall: I am really becoming a huge Maybelline mascara fan. Seriously. XXL Curl Power so far is my HG mascara but the Colossal can easily take that position. It is a really good mascara. I found that aside from getting my lashes “out there”, it also helped separating them. Did I experience clumping? Noooope! For $6.99, I can’t complain. Big ups to SlvrLips for letting us know about this baby there. I am extremely impressed and recommend this mascara to those looking for volume and length. If you are in dire need of some curl too, I suggest pumping a good eyelash curler on your lashes prior to mascara application. I’ve heard some people are hatin’ on the Colossal because of the unattractive color of the tube, but I think that’s a crazy reason to not try something new. This mascara could come in a puke green tube with gray and yellow spots and I wouldn’t care. If it works….it works!

Per request….here’s a video review of the mascara as well.

Mascara Monday: SpinLash

Another Monday means another another post from the Mascara Monday series. But first…look around! I added an “About Me” link and a search button to the site. It’s pretty accurate so play around with it when you get a chance. Beauty bloggers all over have been reviewing SpinLash. I honestly don’t know what they’re saying. Didn’t want anyone to taint my views but I’ll tell you one thing…when I received this product in the mail, I was excited!! Was it worth the hype?

Price: 2 out of 4 ($15)
Packaging (Brush wand): 4 out of 5
Overall: 4 out of 5

What it Claims: “…….first mascara to solve the clumping problem through its innovative, patent pending rotating brush that responds to your touch. “

The truth: Ohmigoodness….it really does spin!

What I loved about it: I was first concerned at how difficult it would be to hold, but nope, it wasn’t as bulky as that CoverGirl Lash Blast. I liked how it separated my lashes but didn’t make me feel like I was undergoing some kind of eyelash surgery.

What I didn’t like: I don’t think that there was a particular aspect about it that I didn’t like.

Overall: Not bad. It’s a bit on the expensive side, (kinda makes sense, it is battery operated) but it actually does what it says it is going to do. It doesn’t tickle or make me feel uncomfortable which was a concern of mine. It does a wonderful job at separating the lashes and making them look fuller. I didn’t use the mascara that was provided. I actually used Dior’s Blackout (giving it another try) and liked the results that I got when I used the Spinlash. Because I have funky lashes, I would probably use this a lot more than the average person. You can get them at your local Target stores for $15.00

So what do you think? Interested in trying Spinlash or would you prefer to stick with the traditional mascara wand? Send your suggestions for Mascara Monday to Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.

….as a matter of fact, stay tuned: I’ll be giving away a free SpinLash or two. Happy Monday and here’s to a wonderful week!

Mascara Monday: Sephora Lash Plumper

Grrr, yessss….yall know how I feel about Mondays. I’m hopin’ that my girl Kia from Yummy411 had a wonderful birthday on Saturday!!!! The only joy I get from Mondays is sharing a new mascara review with you wonderful people. Yall know I can’t keep up with reviewing a great deal of beauty products but one thing I don’t mind reviewing is mascaraaaaa. Especially the ones that say they can work magic. So how did Sephora’s Lash Plumper do?

.

.

Sephora’s Lash Plumper

Price: 1 out of 5 ($16….dang!)
Packaging (Brush Wand): 1 out of 5
Overall:
1 out of 5


What it claims:Fatten your flutter with this lash-plumping formula. The larger brush, with slightly tapered edges, reaches from root to tip, for truly bat-worthy volume and glamour.”

The truth: This is a joke, right?


What I loved about it: The fact that I received it in sample size for free.

What I didn’t like: The product.

Overall: Boo and double boo. What just happened? ….absolutely NOTHING and that was the problem with this mascara. As a volumizing mascara, I expected clump-less coated lashes. I, in return, got….nothing. Not happy with that. Boo again.

What do you think about this mascara? Have you tried it and liked it? Better yet….tell me the WORST mascara that you’ve ever used. If you’ve sent me an email requesting a particular mascara to review, I haven’t forgotten about you. I have a looong list. Keep sendin’ me reviews at Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com

Mascara Monday: MAC Zoom Lash

Happy Monday, gorgeous people! You know that the only thing good about Mondays are Mascara Mondays! You know I’m still trying to find the BEST mascara ever.

If it exists.

And lemme tell you…Maybelline XXL Curl Power is my current LG. Love it!

This time around I reviewed MAC’s Zoom Lash Mascara. Did it really give me zOoOoOm?

You ready to find out?

MAC’s Zoomlash

Price: 3 out of 4 ($11)
Packaging (Brush wand): 5 out of 5
Overall: 4 out of 5

What it Claims: “This instant volume mascara power-lifts the lashes into length, curls them up…builds them faster than you can wink! Precision control wand glides smoothly down lashes to provide a gorgeously silky upward “sweep”. Smudgeproof and long-wearing!”

The truth: Seriously….it does give you some “ZOOM!”

What I loved about it: What I love most about Zoom Lash is the wand. I adore wands that are smaller in size with nice defined bristles.

What I didn’t like: It made my lashes a bit too wispy. And it is flaky. Yuck!

Overall: One of the better MAC mascaras, in my opinion. Zoom Lash works for me simply because it really gives my lashes a “wave” that I would not otherwise have. I also love that it is long lasting and doesn’t loose its lift throughout the day. I can certainly do without the flakiness, though. And I think I need to mention that this mascara makes your lashes a bit stiff. I personally like this feature because a lot of mascaras either weigh down my lashes or don’t give them enough lift. I can dig it!

Have you tried with mascara? What do you think? Or tell me what you think about MAC’s mascaras in general. Send your suggestions for Mascara Monday to Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.
