Guess what everyone… tomorrow is Liz’s birthday! Make sure you stop by DBP to see what she picks for her birthday weekend mani and wish her a happy bday 🙂
Today I will update you guys on my adventures in mascara, it was time for Smashbox Bionic Mascara to go and I actually picked up this Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara (in black) which I had gotten a sample of not too long ago and used it enough times that I wanted to buy it.
This has a much smaller brush than I normally go for and it is tapered. I’ve kind of realized that I might be over the fat brush mascara, lately I feel like it just applies product where none is needed and all of that then ends up flaking off onto my face. So far I have had no flakey issues at all with Clinique Lash Doubling so that’s made me very happy.
I was pretty shocked at how much length I got out of this the first time I put it on, it packs a lot of punch in a small package. Liz feels Clinique Lash Doubling isn’t quite dramatic enough, which I can see, it doesn’t give quite the plush, thickness that I would like. However, I’ve been pretty impressed so far and think my lashes look darn good. Especially after all that flaking, I’m taking the comfortable wear over the extra thickness I’ve gotten from other mascaras, especially those with bigger brushes.
I think it does a really nice job of separating and lengthening my lashes, I feel like the last few products I’ve used have clumped them together more in an attempt to make them look thicker. Even though they’re not exactly plush, they at least look neat and longish.
It’s been really easy to apply the mascara so far, I don’t need more than a couple applications to feel like it’s done its work. I don’t have to struggle with it and it doesn’t get stuck or apply too much mascara to the lashes.
For me the best part really has been the formula, I can’t say enough good things about it. It goes on so easily and stays on and doesn’t flake. If you want your mascara to be lengthening and comfortable I definitely recommend Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara. Not to mention the price tag on this is only $14.50! Compared to what I’ve been spending on mascara the last few months, that really is a steal. Looking back at pictures of my lashes in Smashbox Bionic, I really don’t see that Smashbox Bionic is any better than Clinique Lash Doubling, however the formula is much better in my opinion in that it’s less flakey.
