Shiseido Eyelash Curler 

I sometimes dream of long, luxurious, perfectly curled eyelashes. Of course, what I have are lackluster and stick straight out. Because of this, I thought I’d try the Shiseido Eyelash Curler.

This eyelash curler is available at Sephora and similar retailers for $20. I must say that while this doesn’t make my eyelashes look perfect, it does make them significantly better. It’s a sturdy curler with a strong grip, and that makes a big difference. It also is shaped well and allows me to get really close to my lash line for the ideal curl. Overall, I’ve been really happy with this product. I would say it’s one of the best I’ve tried.

Have you tried this one or do you have a favorite eyelash curler? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

Lancôme Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base

Eyelashes are one feature that I love looking at on other people. When someone has a thick set of dark, perfectly curled eyelashes, I get so envious because I just can’t get mine to behave. I’ve tried everything! Recently, I tried to enhance mine with the Lancôme Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base. This eyelash primer can be purchased from Sephora for $25.50.

My eyelashes are very straight and very thin. Because of them being so thin, I have to be careful not to weigh them down with too much product because if I do they won’t keep their curl at all. So, I have found that I have to apply just a little bit of this product. However, I do see a difference in my lashes when I use this base. My eyelashes look thicker, and the added volume is very nice. Even though this goes on white, it’s easily covered by my regular mascara. I definitely recommend this to people who need a boost and have thin eyelashes but remember to only use a little bit because it can get heavy and weigh them down.

Do you use an eyelash primer? If so, which is your favorite? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!

Clinique Lash Building Primer

My eyelashes are pretty boring. They’re thin and they don’t have much natural curl. I’m always looking for products that can enhance them, and a Sephora sales associate recently suggested that I try an eyelash primer. Due to this recommendation, I decided to pick up the Clinique Lash Building Primer recently.

Don’t be afraid of the color! 

 I’m going to be completely honest. I wasn’t convinced that I was going to be thrilled with the effect of using a primer. Since my lashes are already so thin, I was convinced that this was just going to weigh them down further. Also, most primers are white, and this seemed a little alarming to me. Why am I supposed to lighten my lashes only to darken them again a minute later? Thankfully, the formulation is actually pretty clear. This product will only look white if you’ve applied way too much!

So, should you buy it?

Pros: This did not weigh down my lashes. It made my lashes look thicker and longer. I’ve used underneath four different mascaras, and it enhanced the overall look each time. I could definitely see the difference between using this primer and going it alone with just mascara. It also dries really quickly. I curled my eyelashes before and after using this primer, and I liked the effect most by using that method.

Cons: The product was not expensive on its own ($15.50) but it really does have to be used with actual mascara which will set you back an additional $20 typically. That adds up to about $35 on lashes alone, which can be kind of pricey. I’m curious at to whether there’s a mascara that packs in all the benefits of using a primer for just the price of one product.

Overall, I’m impressed. The sales associate was right (I’m so sorry for doubting you, Greg). I was really pleased with this product, but I’m definitely interested in trying other brands to see how they stack up next to this one.
