Mascara triple combo?

Wednesday, February 08, 2012

I am one of those who is always in the hunt for a miracle mascara that can give my lashes beautiful drama. I have try different brands with no success, so I finally caved in on mixing two different mascaras
and so began the experiment.
Maybe you are the kind of person that does not want to give that much time to lashes but hey.. this was my last resource..and it's paying off!
However, if you are one of those that definitely spend a little extra time with lashes then you completely understand me :)

I recently got a sample of the Shiseido Perfect mascara and I kind of liked it since it give some volume to my lashes but I was not extremely happy.
Doing a little shopping in Ulta I came across the new Maybelline Illegal lengths, and it called my attention that this mascara had little fibers in it so I bought it.
Mixing these 2 mascaras have been an insteresting expriement since I can get volume with theSshiseido and lengh with the Maybelline thanks to the tiny fibers.
I havent experienced any flaking from neither one.

Today I added a third product to the combo, yup, a third one... and it is the Clinique Lash primer and the results were really nice since the primer prepares the lashes giving some volume and definition. You have to work quickly with this primer though. I still have to play with it more since I've never used lash primers before, but I'm getting there! I will post a FOTD soon with my natural enhanced lashes ;)
Have a great Wednesday!

Maybelline illegal lengths $9
Clinique Lash primer $15
Shiseido Perfect Mascara $21

  1. I max out at 2...3 seems like too much work for me, although I suppose if I added a base that counts as three?

    Being a Maybelline Girl at heart, I was so excited to try out the new Illegal Lengths mascara but it just looked really boring on me so I'm sticking with my Volum' Express for now.

    Oh and since you mentioned Shiseido, I've heard that their mascara base is fantastic. Highly raved about, if you get a chance to try it, let us know!

    1. Yeah, I've heard about their base.. would like to try at some point

  2. i'm waaaaay too lazy for 3 mascaras, but it sounds like a good way to accomplish perfect volume, curl, length :D

  3. Wow, 3 mascara's! I wish there was one mascara that could do everything!

    1. haha! Well one is a primer.. but yeah 3 products.. I like to experiment.. and so far I haven't been able to find one that can enhance them they I want hehe

  4. wowzaaaa!!! I usually just stick on the falsies and use any mascara... my small lashes don't hold the curl :((

    1. I love falsies, I've been wearing almost every day since I got my job at Clinique. however leately for some reason I've been wanting to use my own lashes haha. So I am experimenting in the hopes of finding the perfect products so my lashes can look good. I bought the Shisiedo lash primer since I read so many good reviews.. so I will be doing an update on this :)
