I will really try to get at least half of these done!

Oh, and I did not intentionally mean to forget my mini HK giveaway from before I left to the States.  I just, honestly, forgot so... I will have a redo shortly!  My apologies!


Okay, onto the mascara!!!

As most of you know, I am all about the false eyelashes.  The addiction started back in 2002 when I started modeling (and I use that term lightly).  A friend of mine needed me to model some clothes for her and she sent me to the MAC counter where I had my first pair of falsies put on.  Since then, putting falsies on is like second nature.  It's easier for me to do that than to put on mascara but every now and then, I get an itch to try it again.  I had always used Maybelline New York's Great Lash because it didn't weigh or uncurl my non-existent lashes.  Last year, I moved onto Covergirl's Lash Blast.  It is currently the one that I normally use on my lower lashes.

Time for something new?

Hell yes!  Especially after hearing Ms. Joey and Ms. Kimberly Tia rave about it.  I had to see what the fuss was about...

Tha'fuss:  Katie B. Faux Lash Mascara

Description:  Made of 100% natural ingredients; thickens, lengthens, and separates without having the clumpiness of other mascara and without wilting your lashes.

Price:  $13.50 USD

Out the box; it's packaging

Cone-shaped brush

Look at my pitiful, down-turned lashes! (-_-)

I applied 2 coats.

Whatcha think?

I think it did a pretty good job with both lengthening and thickening.  I don't have a consistent technique on application yet so I am going to practice a bit more with that before I give ya'll a final verdict, but for now I am pretty happy with it because it did NOT weigh down my lashes.  To me, that's the most important - not losing the curl!

I'll be doin' a full-face look using this mascara shortly and will add to this post.  Stay tuned!

  9. Hey xphoebelinax & ladyish! :)

    I did use an eyelash curler, the Shiseido one. I used it before and after cuz I like my eyelashes straight up since they are usually straight down. LOL
