Hightech cosmetics lash extender
I was wanting a new mascara and after a bit of a look around for something which would make lashes look longer, bought this from the cheap smells site; always a favourite given that postage is free.
This is apparently formulated to stimulate lash growth directly at the root leaving lashes visibly longer from the first application. In fact, the claims go further, suggesting that from first use lashes appear 30% longer and after 30 days of application, lash length increased by up to 0.7mm.
The product contains Crodasone W which is rich in amino acids to enhance lash structure and add vitality and strength.
It also promises to coat and separate all of the lashes leaving them clump free and carbon black since it contains a large amount of black pigmentation.
PRODUCT AND PACKAGING...
The product comes packaged in a box with all of the information and instructions written on the box and inside the box is an information booklet extolling the virtues of the product in several languages.
The mascara itself is encased in what is apparently a limited edition bottle/ tube. It has a small diamond on it and comes inside a little black velveteen bag; quite snazzy!
When I take the mascara wand out of the tubing it does look remarkably like any other mascara brush but it does claim to be a multi performance brush which has the ability to pick up just the rig amount of the product. It is very oval in shape and when I have a look, there is a good coating of the mascara on the brush which bodes well.
USING THE PRODUCT...
To achieve maximum impact, it is important to follow the given instructions which I did to the letter.
The wand should be held horizontally, which is usual for mascaras and starting by fanning out the outermost lashes and moving inwards, the mascara should be combed from root to tip. It is suggested that several applications of the mascara will give optimum results, so it's clearly better to apply a few layers rather than just one thick layer.
I find that even following the instructions it's not so different to other mascaras, but the main thing I do differently is to apply three layers top and bottom lashes. Because of the shape of the wand, it is incredibly easy to apply the mascara to top and bottom lashes without any of the product being inadvertently put onto my skin.
The mascara isn't waterproof so useless if on holiday or going somewhere where water may be involved. However, it is very easy to remove with my regular eye make up remover and requires no excessive rubbing of the eyes.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY...
I bought this online and it cost about £9
I have used this mascara on a daily basis and whilst I can't vouch for any permanent lengthening of my lashes, the mascara does give me very thick very black lashes which look longer. As promised, the mascara does separate the lashes and even with quite hasty application, my lashes are looking longer and thicker.
I didn't measure my lashes before use so am unsure as to whether they have permanently grown or not. However, the fact that they look longer and thicker whilst wearing the mascara is enough for me.
