The Lash Stash - Review
I've now had a chance to try out every mascara in The Lash Stash I got last week. Each day, these are the notes I took on what I liked and didn't like.
Benefit A Little Bit BADgal - I didn't love the brush. It clumped up my lashes so I had to put my Tweezerman lash comb to use. Once I combed it out and applied a few layers, it looked satisfactory to me. Late into the night, I noticed a bit of smudging under my eyes. This is something I've gotten used to not having when using the Imju Fiberwig mascara.
Blinc Kiss Me Mascara - It went on fairly easily with little combing to get the desired look. I thought it was a cool concept to not have to use eye makeup remover to take it off. I was satisfied.
LORAC Publicity Stunt Lashes - Went on easy, but my lashes seem shorter than I'm used to.
Smashbox Bionic Mascara - It went on pretty well, no complaints. Again, shorter looking lashes than I'm used to.
Stila Multi-Effect Mascara - I loved the curved brush on this one, but the end of it was kind of goopy. It made it difficult to coat the outer lashes without making them clump. The clumps are easily removed though.
Sephora Brand Lash Plumper - I quite liked the brush for this mascara. I think it worked very well, no clumps and it coated the lashes nicely. I didn't even pull out my comb. The look didn't last however, by midday the mascara had mostly come off and I had black under my eyes.
Too Faced Lash Injection in Black - This is easily my favorite of the 7. I love the brush and it went on well, no clumps.
All in all I think this kit was good. I may not have fallen in love with them all, but I still think that they are all decent products. Like I said, the Too Faced was my favorite and I loved the way the Blinc mascara worked.
I would recommend this kit to anyone that wears mascara. I think there is something for everyone in it. Anyone that has tried it, I'd love to hear what you thought about it.
