Lash Envy

Lyndsy over at Yellow Brick Blog posted last week about her search for a new mascara that not only lengthened, but also made her lashes fuller. I was so pleased to read that post because I, too, have been searching for the same thing! You can imagine my joy when Lyndsy shared her find: Prescriptives 'Lash Envy' Mascara. I immediately put a trip to Dillard's on my "To Do" list so I could give this mascara a try.

LO and I finally made it to the mall last Tuesday. Of course I picked up my new mascara and was all too excited to give it a whirl. (Side note: LO got quite an interesting complement from the Lancome lady: "What perfect eyebrows she has!" Ya, my girl's got the eyebrows covered. Lucky thing.).

So on Wednesday I was finally able to debut my new lashes. For your viewing pleasure (not really), I have "before and after" shots of my lovely little lashes so you can see just how well the Lash Envy mascara worked for me. Without further ado:

Before (pay special attention to my non-existent lower lashes):

After (WOW!):

The "After" picture really doesn't do this lovely mascara justice. I couldn't figure out the right angle to take the photo so it would show how well the top lashes looked after applying the mascara. (Note to all: Staring at super-enlarged photos of your face in iPhoto doesn't do much for one's self-esteem. Why didn't anyone tell me how HUGE my pores are?!)

To summarize, I was envious of my own lashes after using this new mascara! It went on so easy and smooth, didn't leave any crazy clumpy marks on my lashes or the area around my eyes, and it stayed on great! My favorite thing about this mascara was how easy it was to remove when I washed my face with my Lancome Gel Clarte Clarifying Cleanser. It didn't leave the not-so-lovely dark mascara goo under the eye. So I didn't have to use a separate eye makeup remover, which was nice!

At only $19.50, Prescriptives 'Lash Envy' is a mascara that you should most definitely add to your makeup bag!
