A Beauty Of A Mascara

IMG_0796

One thing I can’t leave the house without is definitely mascara! My lashes are quite blonde without it,so you can barely seem them! Hence I absolutely need mascara in my life! Every single day.

One mascara I’ve been absolutely loving lately is the Super-Black Long Lash Mascara from the Born Pretty Store*. The first thing that caught my eye with this one is the beautiful design. Just look at it. How gorgeous is the packaging? I fell in love with it right away. Obviously the packaging isn’t the most important thing about a mascara but after testing it for quite a little while now I love the mascara just as much as I love its packaging. I think this is the perfect mascara for your every day makeup.

It only adds a little bit of volume but quite a lot of length, which is what I really like. During the day I don’t need super voluminous dramatic lashes. I like to kept it more causal, which is why I definitely prefer a mascara that doesn’t go overboard with volume but still adds a lot of length and that’s exactly what this mascara does! Plus it’s waterproof.

The only thing that’s bothers me a tiny bit is that it’s quite hard to remove. It literally stays on my lashes no matter what. In a way that’s also a good thing I guess because it doesn’t smudge at all. And I’ve noticed that even though when I can’t remove everything at night and I wake up the next morning I don’t have racoon eyes. The mascara actually stays in place. I think that’s quite impressive!

So here’s me with no mascara:

Only one eye with mascara

As you can see there’s definitely quite the difference. It makes my lashes really dark and adds quite a lot of length to them! They actually are quite a bit longer than it looks in the photos but I have to use my phone for blogging at the moment, so that camera obviously doesn’t pick everything up as good as my normal camera. Anyway this is exactly what I look for in a mascara, I can use for my every day makeup! I’ve been using this almost every day for the last two weeks and I’m really loving this one.

Thanks for reading!

It’s pretty much safe to say that every girls dreams of having incredibly long dark lashes just like a doll. Most of us spent years trying to find the perfect mascara that lengthens our lashes, gives them volume and definition without being sticky or making your lashes break. After trying out all different kinds of mascara from different brands I have finally found my personal favorite: The Lancôme Dolls Eyes Mascara.

Fortunately I was blessed with pretty long lashes already but since I’m a blonde they are really light so I apply mascara to darken them. This mascara however gives my lashes perfect definition and adds even more length. It separates them perfectly and I only need to apply one or two coats to get my  perfect result.

Notice the difference between the left eye, on which I applied my mascara and right eye? I definitely do!

This mascara really does keep its promised of giving you doll like lashes. If you like the doll look and want your eyes to appear eve brighter try using a gel eyeliner with it.

My eyes appear a lot bigger, don’t they?

I can only recommend this great mascara. If you want to go for a natural look just use the mascara by itself and if you want your eyes to really stand out apply some eyeliner. The Dolls Eyes Mascara by Lancôme is definitely worth its price because unlike so many other products it really lives up to its advertisements. It’s one of my make-up essentials and I’ve been using it a lot. I know I will definitely buy it again and you should too if you want your dreams of doll like lashes to come true.
