This was recommended in a recent issue of a magazine I was reading. Supposed to be very good for lengthening lashes. I had never heard of it, but I have ordered some. (Sucker for good mascara here!) Just wondered if anyone had ever used it?

Hi Kay -

I haven't heard of this but would love to hear what you think once you've tried it. I need a change in mascara. I just checked it out & since it's the biggest seller in Japan, I'd be curious to see how others feel. I only tried a lash-lengthener a few times many years ago, but they used to flake off into my eye, but I'm sure the formulas are much improved today.

I hope you like it & please update us.

Thanks! Have a great weekend...VV

Got it, tried it, was not impressed. I think Lancome defencils and Diorshow are better, actually.

Hi Kay -

Thank you for the update. Sorry you had a bad experience. What didn't you like about it? Was it flakey?

Perhaps I'll check out Diorshow... VV

I'm not able to tolerate wearing any kind of makeup, not even foundation. Very sad...

No, it was fine as far as not flaking. I just expected more lengthening and volumizing.

No, actually, I just expected a miracle and I didn't get it!

Kay -

Have you experimented with it, such as applying a coat, then another without letting it dry, or vice versa? Or 3 coats?

One trick I've found is using 2 different mascaras at the same time - one coat of this, followed by a coat of that - usually a coat of a nice expensive mascara followed by a coat of cheapo mascara. Each is so different in texture that I need to experiment with applying it before the first dries or after, but I find the best time to try different thngs is when I'm home for the day rather than rushing out the door & can do different things to each eye. Don't want to look lopsided & frighten the mailman.

For me, I've often found applying 2nd coats while wet works best & if a special occasion or I'm going out at night & want that big, plump falsh lash look, a 3rd coat after the others dry works best, otherwise I get that look of "glompy tarantula on my eye".

Good luck. Hopefully you can experiment with it before you discard it... VV

Yeah, think I've tried it that way, Kitten. I'll probably give it a few more tries. And it's not bad. Just I have some I like better. That's usually my "modus operandi" for using most mascara too. Let one coat dry and then re-apply a couple more.

Oh, too bad, Kay. The ones I don't like I keep as "week-end make-up" or bring on vacation with me, in case I loose them. Of course, those aren't the ones we loose. It's always the Chanel lipstick that disappears from my purse... after one use. Chanel stealing fairies, no doubt relatives of the one sock left in the dryer thievin' elves. I could throw the Maybelline mascara in a dumpster & I swear it would be back on my table in the morning.

Oh, how about this. Maybe your eyelashes are so beautiful, you don't need any change, so that's why you don't notice any? Yep, I think that's the one!

Have fun... VV

If you're referring to me, Kitten, I'm afraid you are very wrong. I have very skimpy eyelashes...which is why I am sooo "into" the mascaras!

I think it is a good idea (like you suggested) to keep mascara you may not be crazy about somewhere as an "extra." For example, I like to keep some at work.
