You’re not officially American unless you’re multitasking your way through life. Driving while on your cell phone, reading your e-mail while updating your blog, texting your best friend while debating politics with your neighbor, walking while chewing gum at the same time….this is the society we live in. We have to juggle 10 to 20 different tasks a day, we can’t take time out and do one thing and proceed to follow up with another after the first task is complete, we need to do them both, together, simultaneously. If you can’t do it, you’re out of this rat race because it’s an essential skill in work and your personal life (if you have kids you need to juggle even more, say 20-30 different things).
Maybe all that multitasking has drained out into our makeup because many products nowadays promise to do everything and than some. Multitasking is the new wave of your makeup future.
For example the new Smashbox Masquerade Liquid Liner & Lash Overlay performs two functions, nope not one, this bad boy multitasks with the best of us.
A dual purpose formula for the lash line and lashes.
So here it is multitasking at its best. One product, two uses.
This is a brushless roll style application which you can smooth onto lashes as an overlay. It basically dyes lashes a rich, golden bronze shade. No one says you can’t use it as a mascara as well if you want as you can get a fair bit of volume brushing it through lashes but I do suggest curling, putting on your normal mascara, and following up with this as you’ll get a fair bit more of drama if you do.
Now the applicator not only offers the option to use the product as an overlay it also allows you the line with as well since it includes a tine brush on the top of the wand which you can line with.
You have to be careful when using this as a lash overlay in conjunction with mascara because it can get a little clumpy. Just be sure to go slowly during the application process!
- Anyone looking for a more dramatic finish to their lashes (this makes lashes look a golden bronze).
- Anyone unwilling to have alot of product hanging out on their lashes (this does weight lashes down when used with mascara, it’s a tad heavy).
I liked this alot for Fall as it gives my lashes a certain richer look particularly when paired with brown or gold shades of eyeshadow. It kinda gives my final eyeshadow look a bit of something extra and makes things look dramatic and interesting! Quite nice and worth looking at next trip to Sephora if you’re into lash overlays such as this. It also comes in green (haven’t tried that one yet).
