The Mascara Follow-Up

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

What a busy week! I've been meaning to write a follow-up to my mascara post for days and I'm just now getting to it! First of all, thank you so much for all of your mascara advice, opinions, and comments! (Side note: How do I reply to someone's comment? I can't figure it out!) After work last Friday I decided to head to Sephora and make a mascara decision! Here's what I ended up with:

I love my Shu Uemura eyelash curler!

Clinique High Impact Mascara

I was surprised at how very black this one was definitely blacker than several of the others I looked at. I must admit, even after several of your rave reviews about this mascara, I was still a little unsure that Clinique mascara would have what I was looking for. So far I love it...the color is fabulous, it lengthens, thickens, and doesn't clump! My favorite thing about this comes off completely (and super easily) with soap and water! With DiorShow there was always a little residue left on my lashes after washing my face that I had to remove with makeup removing wipes...not the case with Clinique!

I also came home with a tube of Imju Fiberwig Tiny Sniper

This mascara has tiny little fibers in it that are supposed to give "false eyelash like" results. The Tiny Sniper is good for making sure you don't miss the corner and (I think) lower lashes. I think I'm going to buy a tube of Fiberwig and try it out too, but probably not for everyday wear.

I'm also intrigued by these mascaras and I'm thinking I'll have to try them out in the future!

Too Faced Lash Injection

Benefit BADgal Lash

Tomorrow is the last day to enter my A. Tierney bangle giveaway!


  1. Yay! I'm glad I helped and that you like the Clinique, too :)

  2. Thank you for such a great, informative post! I'm so glad "I'm Back" to commenting/blogging - I have missed y'all so (even though I "see" you on Twitter - ha ha ha).

    I'm a mascara (well, makeup lover in general) fanatic! I will certainly try your Clinique suggestion. I've tried Benefit and Too Faced and really didn't like them.... Sephora has a sample mascara pack that I believe contains them so you might want to try that....

    Hope your Hubby does very well on his test! I'm so SO happy mine finished his last one this winter - it is such a liberating feeling for us both!

    Spring Cheers,

  3. Do you know what's crazy...I have found a mascara combo that has people asking if I'm using Latisse, and I'm not.

    Get ready, because it's TOTALLY basic and drugstore, but it works.

    1. Eyelash curler
    2. Cover Girl Lash Blast in the yellow tube for length.
    3. Cover Girl Lash Blast in the orange tube in black for thickness.

  4. Wow, I so could not use that Tiny Sniper brush, it looks tricky!

  5. All you need to do is go to, click on "edit profile" and then "show my email address." then you can reply to people's comments.. i believe.

  6. I am sure I need to branch out of my DiorShow box! :o) Thanks for all of the recommendations!
