I naturally (and sadly) have quite short, sparse and thin eyelashes so mascara is very important for me and something I definitely couldn’t live without. Mascara frames the eyes making them stand out so it is an absolute necessity for any girl to have a decent mascara that they know and love. When Lash Domination was on display at my local salon, I was instantly drawn to it. Not only does it have really pretty silver packaging but the words ‘Lash Domination’ just jump out at you in bold capital letters. How could I not buy it? Well, technically I didn’t buy it but my mum did as a gift. Lash Domination claims to be a 10-in-1 mascara that has the ability to volumise, lengthen, thicken, seperate and lift your eyelashes whilst being smudge resistant, clump resistant, flake resistant, mineral fortified and having the ability to last all day. This mascara from bareMinerals does A LOT or at least it claims to. This mascara has a spiralled 180 degree all around curved wand that is meant to coat, grab and define each eyelash whilst adding length and volume. I find it difficult to find a mascara that actually offers length and volume and follows through on both claims.
So what happened when I tried it? I know you are dying to know… At first, the mascara was extremely wet which I always find to be an issue with new mascaras so I left it open for a while before coming back to it. I find that they always apply better once they’ve dried out a tiny bit. The wand is quite difficult to work with and manipulate as it requires a lot of twisting and rotating. What happened to just brushing the lashes upwards and then a quick brush downwards hey? The wand did grab each lash and there were definitely no signs of clumping or flaking which is a bonus. Nobody wants to be left with those dreaded spider eyelashes. You all know the ones I mean. However, it did smear slightly underneath my eye despite not actually using any on my bottom lashes (I never apply to my bottom lashes) but that was nothing that a bit of micellar solution and a cotton bud couldn’t sort out. I feel that this mascara is definitely better suited for those with longer and fuller lashes as I just didn’t get the desired results when used alone. My lashes appeared fuller but not necessarily longer. They still looked quite short but just thicker. It just didn’t really compare to the mascara that I’m currently using which is actually £6.00 cheaper BUT when used with Soap & Glory’s Thick & Fast mascara (my favourite) it works like an absolute dream. Result… Gorgeous lashes! I’d love to know how well it works alone on the longer lashed ladies though… I imagine it would work quite well. If any of you have tried it, let me know your thoughts.
(bareMinerals are doing a 2-for-1 on Lash Domination with a mini mascara and a full sized mascara at £16.00, usually £24.00.)
Have you tried Lash Domination mascara? What were your thoughts? What is your favourite mascara?
