Confessions of a Lash Addict. I always have been and always will be. And let’s face it, there are worse things in life I could be addicted to! I adore finding and applying the right mascara, making sure each and every lash is lavished with the same amount of love.
It’s the reason I’ve never had lash extensions. Because while they can look completely memorizing, you don’t need to wear mascara, and where’s the fun in that?! If I could only wear one make-up product for the rest of my life, it would undoubtedly be the mighty mascara. Without it my eyes look like pee holes in the snow (sorry, but it’s true!)
However, I do tend to fall out of lust quite quickly. There’s nothing more frustrating than splurging on a new mascara that, within a few weeks, ends up drying out, leaving my lashes cloggy and then crumpling halfway down my face as the day wears on.
So it’s fair to say I’ve tried my fair share of mascaras. And now I have a crush that is rapidly turning into true love. Welcome, Chanel Le Volume. The one I’ve been waiting for. It curls from the first stroke, leaving lashes fuller, longer, and with an intense, sexy volume A second coat achieves sublimely false-looking lashes – a length and volume that’s too good to be true! There are other shades to choose from, but for me, it’s intensely black lashes every time. Try yours today. I promise you’ll never look back.
