Product Review; "Maybelline the Collossal Volum' Express Waterproof Mascara"
Today facebook is all a fluster with posts about how "it's snowing, it's snowing, IT'S SNOWING!!!". Well, actually, it's flurry-ing. This ain't snow. The first year I moved to NYC, it was the highest snow fall in 40 years. THAT was snow. This is just tiny droplets of soft ice that whirl about and catch on your lashes.
But, those pretty little ice-lets will eventually melt on your wink so you may as well be prepared. In my arsenal for today's shoot; Maybelline the Colassal Volum' Express Waterproof Mascara. It's a soft formula that increases volume and even adds a bit of length without getting clumpy. The brush in the container looks like a standard mascara wand but has multiple rows of really small fibers that are spun very close together. This ensures that each and every hair of your lash line is gripped and coated.
But where this formula stands out is it's longevity in wear. With a single coat, my models are able to withstand tear inducing gusts of winds and many a minuscule snowflake atop their, now voluminous, lashes. No breaking and flaking is occuring and the waterproof-ness is still soft to the touch.
I am having no problem with the flurries. Bring on the snow!
