Do you remember my question "To curl, or not to curl?" I asked you in February? So, I finally "gave up" a month ago. I brought home these 3 products:
Eyelash curler from Cailap (with two refill pads). It looks like Shu Uemura curler, doesn't it?
It definitely makes a difference. My eyelashes don't look flat anymore. The only negative thing (or I'd better say - concern) is that it somehow curls the base in a "sharp-angled" shape, not in a "naturally round" shape. Do you get my point? Is it normal like that? :/ This weirdness is not visible when mascara is on though.
Special THANK YOU (for helping me to decide) goes to PowerLifterChick, Thess, Sagu and Bebo! :)
L'Oreal Renewal Lash Serum
I've been testing this "miracle product" for one month only, so can't say anything about its power yet. Strangely enough it was sold out almost everywhere (except for the grocery shop, where I was lucky to find it) in the Helsinki city center and in large shops around the metropolitan area. The only thing I can say so far, that, thankfully, it doesn't irritate my eyes. I'll keep you updated on the progress (if I'll see any). :)
Lumene True Natural Volume Mascara with conditioning Arctic cornflower
"90% natural ingredients" coupling with "voluminising" effect sounded like a perfect promise. Plus it was comparably cheap (around 9 EUR), it is made in Finland, and, the most important thing, it was sealed (only with a duct tape-like label though)! On a side note - it indeed is a serious problem here in Finland. Why do those sellers (Rimmel, Maybelline, Max Factor, I'm speaking to you in particular!) sell us unsealed (aka open) mascaras? :/ Nea, I'm totally with you on this issue. :)
I really wanted to like this mascara, but here comes the huge BUT. It worked fine for about one week only. Afterward it became just an ordinary "almost 3 months old" mascara. I mean, it becomes drier and flakier each time. And, I know how to keep mascaras safe and fresh! Where are my promised 6 (I'd be fine with 3) months after opening?! Weird, huh? :/
One more thing, I noticed a comparably high loss of eyelashes over this month. Can't say the exact number, but earlier I didn't even pay attention to it as I saw one "dead" eyelash per month at most, now I see several per week. :/ Have no idea what might be the problem. Or, it might be, that it's my imagination only? I hope it is. :)
Now I'm on a quest to find a new mascara! Again! REQUIREMENTS: it should volumise, lengthen, look natural (no flakes, no clumps) and stay fresh for around 3 months or more. Is it too much to ask for? :) Help is much appreciated! :) What's your HG mascara?
Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts?
