Those of you who read my blog on a regular basis know that I’m kind of a Mascara Fiend …although I prefer the term connoisseur. Of course my friends know about (and some share) my obsession with BIG lashes, so I (appropriately) received a “LashStash” gift set from Sephora this Christmas, and I just HAVE to tell you about it!
The LashStash gift set contains sample size tubes of Sephora’s top 10 selling mascaras and a “Tarte” brand eyelash curler. What an awesome idea, putting all the popular brands together so you can test them out and see which one you like best. I’ve been having so much fun trying them out and layering them!
The LashStash contains several of your run-of-the-mill volumizing and lengthening choices, which are great, and all seem to work pretty well, but what really impressed me were the more unique additions to this kit. It contains a sample of Tarte’s “multipEYE” lash enhancing mascara, which is clinically proven to make natural lashes thicker and longer. The kit also contains Blinc’s Kiss me mascara, which adds the lengthening tubes to your lashes, and the Make-up forever smokey lash mascara, which is a great thing to have a sample of, as you don’t use it everyday. Most gift sets that your purchase contain one or two great products, and a bunch of fillers that really aren’t worth much to make it look like a really great deal, that is not the case with this set. There isn’t a single product in this kit that I don’t like.
My favorite combination is:
One coat of “MultiplEYE”, because who doesn’t love some extra lash!
And alternate one coat of “Kiss Me” and one coat “GOGO Instant Natural Volume”, allow to dry and alternate these two one or two more times.
- this combo will give you pretty good length and volume, but even with all of these expensive so called “favorites” I haven’t found one (or even a combination) that I like better than my “Falsies Black Drama”.
The best part of the whole set is the Tarte Eyelash curler. This thing is amazing! I freaking love it. The day before I got this kit I would have told you without a doubt in my mind that an all eyelash curlers were the same, but I was sadly mistaken! All Eyelash curlers are NOT created equal! The Tarte “Picture Perfect Eyelash Curler” goes for about $15 at Sephora, which does seem a little steep if you’re used to the $5 revlon ones, but I promise you, it’s worth every penny…
So the verdict on the LashStash: It makes a great gift, and I’m glad I have it, but my lashes still belong to Maybelline Falsies.
