First of all, pardon the crappy, unproduced video. I am in love with my new Flip Video camera that I got for Christmas (thanks sweetie! *muah*), it makes creating and uploading video sooooooooo easy. I could go back in with my editing software and make a big production out of it, but I’m not gonna. I am of the mindset that I would rather get it out there than sit on it for weeks (months?) – so hopefully you don’t mind. :)
Second – this is the first of my Mascara Wars. I mentioned last week that I am shopping for new mascara, so I went on a spending spree when I went to Houston on Thursday so I could get rolling on this. The first mascara I have tried is Publicity Stunt Lashes, Long-Wearing Mascara, from Lorac. This is what they say:
What it is formulated to do:
LORAC’s new breakthrough mascara pulls a publicity stunt … unbelievably gorgeous lashes that last! This revolutionary mascara creates long, lush lashes that are gym-proof, cry-proof and red carpet beauty-proof!
What else you need to know:
Its ultra lightweight formula is loaded with natural ingredients that create a long wearing, innovative new technology, allowing you to take a break from re-applying your mascara every day without it smudging, budging, or flaking. Get the celebrities’ red carpet secret to flawless, long luxurious lashes that last and last!
My take: This mascara was incredibly thin and watery. I made a mess of my eyelids putting it on – it got everywhere. Once it was on, it wasn’t bad looking, but I am a drama gal. So keep that in mind. The mascara lasted, I slept in it and it was still lovely the next morning. Looking at this video, I like the looks of it better than I did at the time, but honestly, I am never looking for a “light” mascara. My blonde, short lashes need all the help they can get!
The second mascara was the classic Diorshow. This is lovely mascara and absolutely right down my alley. Thickening, nice and black – and neat to put on. For the record, it looked pretty great the next morning too. Diorshow is a “Best of Sephora” mascara – and for a reason.
From Dior: Inspired by runway shows and behind-the-scenes tricks used by professional makeup artists Diorshow Mascara reveals the secrets of stars.
SPECTACULAR MAKEUP RESULT
DIORSHOW Mascara offers an ultra-glamorous make-up result with lashes thickened, lengthened and curved to the nth degree- simply extraordinary.
Addling to the glamour of it all, an easy-to-use generously curved XXL brush and a silvery metal case with the Dior go to accessorize your bag.. It’s the must-have lash makeup’
This is a great mascara, and by virtue of its qualities which are exactly what I look for in mascara, Diorshow is a winner, hands down.
