Volume and Length with LashXtendWednesday, August 21, 2013
I am not much of a mascara person, but I am always in search for the perfect one. Ever since I started doing makeup 9 years ago, Maybelline was my mascara of choice, and then through the years I have tried others from high-end to drugstore. Up to this day, I continue my search for the best and yet affordable mascara since mascaras have a very short shelf life.

The back of the mascara has a built-in mirror for applying product on your lashes, or for touch-ups. Warning: Never apply mascara in a moving vehicle. I learned that the hard way.
Their mascara wand is the no-frills kind of wand. No curves, no special bristles, or no flexible plastics. It's just the regular, generic mascara wand. Well, if the wand does have special features, it doesn't say on the box. But I think the secret is in the formula. It has some microscopic special fibres that latch on to your lash hairs hence making it longer and thicker.
So, here are some BEFORE and AFTER pics for you:
I have really embarrassing lashes. They're hardly there so I am in desperate need of mascara. Although, I am a false lashes kind of girl which solves the problem easily, but really, where is the makeup-fun in that?
I curled my lashes from roots to tips and applied 3 coats of mascara (dried for 2 minutes in between coats):
LashXtend gave me the length and the volume and the length that my lashes badly needed, but it didn't hold the curl. My lashes were upright but it didn't have that "U" curl that I was hoping (or looking) for. But then again, all mascaras do that to my lashes because my hair can't hold the curl. Plus, they're really short and fine. #annoyed
Wearing it the whole day didn't make my eyes water which mascaras tend to do to my eyes. I guess the fumes are not that strong so I'm very happy about that. It didn't take long for the mascara to dry too which is also a plus for me.
What is your favorite mascara? I'm dying to know.
Value for Money: 2/5 (local mascaras that is 1/4 the price give me the same effect)
