One of my dearest friends and I were just discussing this topic the other day. While I love the look of false lashes, the sheer amount of time and effort that goes into wearing them just isn’t feasible for me, except on special occasions. Most of the time, a quick glossy lip and a brush of mascara have to suffice.
Being a curious kitty, I have tried a LOT of mascaras in my time, from super-high-end-ridiculous to bargain-bin-cheap. Despite whatever wild claims they make, they generally don’t do much to make your lashes fuller, longer or thicker than they actually are. Some put up a more convincing facade than others, while most just end up being a clumpy mess.
So am I cursed with the mostly natural look for daily wear? I think the answer is NO, after trying Lashem. This ultra-cool product consists of a two-sided tube with a wand on each side. The first side is a white primer that contains tiny fibers that attach themselves to your lashes. There’s no visual trickery here, you can actually watch your lashes becoming longer and fuller. I recommend applying this with a sweeping upward motion on all your lashes at once, then going back with the tip of the brush to add more individual length and volume to each lash.
After you apply the primer, you turn the tube to the second side, which contains a volumizing mascara that includes a lash enhancing serum which helps improve the natural look and health of your lashes over time. The mascara is paraben free, smudge proof, clump free, prostaglandin free, cruelty free, hypoallergenic, and made in the USA. I would apply this in a similar fashion to the primer, in an allover sweeping upward motion to lift and separate lashes.
I was truly amazed at the visible improvement in both length and volume of my lashes in just a few minutes of application time. I had to try not to blink while the mascara dried because my lashes were brushing against my cheeks! I also think the primer helps make the mascara less harsh on your eyelashes. With many normal mascaras, I’ve noticed if I use them every day my lashes start to look a little tired or more sparse- not so with this formula. The mascara removed fairly easily with the eye cleansing cloths I like to use.
Overall, I was so pleased with this product and will definitely be adding it to my regular beauty routine.
