The Mascara Diaries.

My sister Tabbie and I have been on an endless quest for the perfect mascara. If you’re anything like us, you’re on a merry-go-round of mascaras you use in rotation. We’ve been wearing Diorshow Blackout for the last couple of years, thanks to their amazing formula that’s super dramatic – thickening, but also lengthening, giving you a false eyelash effect (provided you put on the appropriate number of coats). But hold the phone – I found something better.

MAC Haute & Naughty Lash - so naughty

Fast forward to MAC Haute and Naughty Lash. This mascara isn’t one mascara doing double duty – it’s two mascaras in one tube. Literally. Two brushes. In one tube. The first brush thickens, while the second lengthens. Amazing.

Sparkly wand = Thickening brush

Pink wand = lengthening brush

Ladies and gentleman who wear mascara, do yourself a favor and go out and purchase this mascara. Swear to god it will change your life. And it’s half the price of Diorshow (sorry, Dior – I love you, but we’re still in a recession).

And if you have a mascara you think is better, I welcome you to challenge me. Bring it on, and I’ll post the results here.

Love,

Phoebe

  1. I would be interested in trying Mac Haute & Naughty Lash, if only to compare it with the mascara I’ve lately fallen in love with. It’s new: http://www.beautyhigh.com/product-guideproduct-obsession-ultraflesh-panthera-mascara/

    ULTRAFLESH PANTHERA

    I have zero tolerance for clumping! And with my high standards, this makes the grade. I hold it second to Clinique’s Lash Power.

    LASH POWER really does last through sweat and tears. I’d wear it to a funeral. IT IS TOTALLY UNIQUE IN THE WAY IT WASHES OFF. It is temperature-sensitive, and instead of a whole bunch of oily stuff, it comes off with WARM WATER. I have a technique where I use a cotton round and hold the lashes between my fingers wet with hot water for a second, then it falls right off. BUT WON’T SMUDGE OR BUDGE ALL DAY — even through fights with boyfriends or sad movies. It’s kind of a miracle. And so gentle. But you won’t get the big volume of other mascaras.

    I wear Ultraflesh Panthera unless, for some reason, I know I’ve got a good cry coming my way.
