I’m always asked the same question, “Do you try every single product on your blog??” The answer is yes, I personally own, try, and actually like each and every product I have reviewed on this site. So you can imagine how many mascaras alone have graced these very lashes. Being a makeup artist by profession, I can spot a good mascara and am able to recommend it to women based on their needs, I can find an audience for most products even if it’s not something that I can personally use.
So here’s the thing. I’ve been using -and purchasing thank you very much- Clinique’s Lash Power mascara based on its 24 hour smudge-proof technology. I’ve found that even waterproof mascaras travel south one me leaving black under my eyes by the end of the day and Clinique’s was the first to stay put.
Until Stila’s Convertible Mascara.
Stila uses a stay in place polymer formula that wraps around each lash in a water-resistant “tube” clinging on until removed with warm water. I had zero smudging- which for me is a big deal since this is the second formula ever to achieve this feat. Dual ended brushes made my lashes come alive first using the narrow brush on one end that reached my outer corner lashes as well as the very base of my lash line, then the feathery brush on the other side to lengthen and separate. The magic of a glossy black formula, dual ended brushes that are equally useful, combined with the best formula in the industry makes for a magical new find for me that I can get on board with every single day.
