I’m a serious lash advocate. Which is weird, because for a long time I hated wearing mascara. I have really sensitive eyes, and almost anything makes them water at the corner, which in turn both ruins my makeup and makes my eye creases chapped like I’ve been crying. I really hate that. But anyway, I’ve since come to and realized that lashes are actually my face’s greatest accessory. A great set can make me feel like a million bucks. (Or at least, what I imagine a million bucks would feel like if I ground it up and rubbed it on my face.)
I’ve always been told on-set by makeup artists and actresses alike that drugstore mascara is the way to go, and for a long time I was strictly a Max Factor girl. But then recently I was gifted this CK1 Mascara in a swag bag, and Holy Wow, am I obsessed. It lengthens, it separates, it even has a cool twisty brush which doesn’t miss a lash.
It doesn’t burn my eyes or flake or smudge, and it’s super buildable for the look you want. It’s hands down the best mascara I’ve ever owned. And strangely, although it comes in jet black, I’m kind of partial to the deep blue.
Do you have a favorite mascara?

Plain Jane Lashes 2 of 6
I have permanent eyeliner, but otherwise, this is the no makeup lash. My lashes are dark at the root, but blonde at the end. Blech.
Pretty, Isn’t It? 3 of 6
I even like the tube it comes in. Takes me back to my CK One fragrance-wearing days.
Magic Wand 4 of 6
The wand is magic. It expands and contracts to tackle every lash.

Here's the wand in compact mode. Does your mascara have modes?
