Touch In Sol Stretchex Stretch Lash Effect Mascara Review

Touch In Sol Stretchex Stretch Lash Effect Mascara

Touch In Sol Stretchex Stretch Lash Effect Mascara ($22) is a lengthening mascara with a lightweight formula that infused with “stretch polymer” to give the look of false lashes. This mascara and a few other Touch in Sol makeup products have recently launched at Sephora.

Touch in Sol is actually a Korean brand which Sephora recently started carrying. Along with Tony Moly, Dr Jart, and a few other Korean brands, Sephora is well on its way to being the next Urban Outfitters and I, for one, am quite happy to see more Korean brands easily accessible at one of my favorite places to shop beauty!

Let’s take a peek Touch In Sol Stretchex Stretch Lash Effect Mascara below!

For a very long time I refused to wear anything but Japanese mascara! In particular, some version of Majolica Majorca Lash Expander or another was in constant rotation as a beauty staple was in my stash! Korean mascara soon became an obsession too….! I dunno what it is but Asia really knows how to make some great mascara formulas!

Touch In Sol Stretchex Stretch Lash Effect Mascara looks unassuming at first. A pretty basic curved applicator with an inky black formula. Simple, no fanfare, no large club applicator, nothing that makes it unique or special! But apply it and WHOA! Lashes go from blah to wow!

This is a very lightweight formula that applies easily on lashes and leaves them nicely curled and pulled up and out. The formula, although not stiffening, holds curl very well through the day and adds literally inches to my lash length. It’s very buildable without being goopey and really one application will get you incredibly longer and fuller lashes. I wouldn’t say it adds super volume to lashes but it doesn’t skimp on the volume either as my lashes look fuller and longer so I’m a happy girl.

Touch In Sol Stretchex Stretch Lash Effect Mascara Before and After

It isn’t a waterproof formula but on my drier eyes I didn’t experience issues with flaking or smearing and the formula removed easily with either eye makeup remover or simply warm water at the end of the day!

Touch In Sol Stretchex Stretch Lash Effect Mascara brings great length to lashes and a touch of volume to with a formula that holds curl too! Good stuff!

Touch In Sol Stretchex Stretch Lash Effect Mascara is available exclusively at Sephora and Sephora.com.

    Yay yay yay! This looks awesome! I will definitely be picking this one up!! Maybe this will be a redeemer for Sephora as I am STILL angry at them for discontinuing my beloved Dejavu Lash Knockout (NOT the fiber one…that one was bad).

    And Etsy perfume oils you say?? I am in trouble! I would just avoid your blog for a few days, but we both know that is NEVER going to happen! Lol! Oh well…if we are going to hell, might as well do it thoroughly !!

    • Isabella Muse

      They are bringing more and more Korean brands to Sephora, very interesting developments 😀 HAHAH! Yeah MORE 😀 lol!

  • devon

    i luuuuuuurve this stuff!!!! every time i use it, i have to remind myself to not layer layer layer because that only leads to the formula pulling off of itself when i try to separate my lashes. definite A+ for flutter though :] they have a new one at sephora too–paper pusher. will you be trying that one out?

    • Isabella Muse

      Oh yes! saw the paper push one and want to try! 😀 I haven’t yet! So glad to hear you like this one Devon!

  • Christina

    So glad you reviewed this; I’ve been debating on whether to purchase or not…am headed to Sephora this evening now! 🙂

      • Sonia

        Thanks, Muse! Could you recommend a tubing mascara from a Korean beauty brand?

        • Isabella Muse

          no problem, I’m not really sure, I dislike tubing and fiber mascara as they feel like I have something in my eye so I avoid using them! I’m sorry! 🙁

  • devon

    an old tubing mascara that i recently discovered is the blinc amplified one. i liked this brush better than the normal blinc (though i am assuming the formulas are the same) and i adore it! layers nicely and adds beautiful length and natural volume :]

    • Sonia

      Devon,

      Thanks for the recommendation. I use Blinc currently but I really dislike their wand. It tends to coat my upper lid waterline and then rubs off on my contact lenses, thus making my vision blurry. But I really like the formula. Maybe I should use a disposable wand or something.

  • Agona

    Muse, do you have a list of currently offered Korean brands at Sephora? I’ve been on a kick to try some. This mascara is definitely going on my must try list. Thanks!

      • Agona

        Thanks so much, Muse! Did you know that I was in Korea for a couple of weeks in 2009, before the K-beauty market, and shopped at The Face Shop without realizing what it was? I thought it was a Korean version of The Body Shop. I bought a few sheet masks there (I remember them being affordable, but in my American mind, I was slightly annoyed I couldn’t buy in bulk. So I picked out a few different random ones to try.) However, I lived in Hawaii at the time, and all the face masks had “whitening” in them. It looked really garish against my tan neck, and made my acne scars/brown spots more prominent. I know a lot of Korean girls pegged me for American immediately (I’m Asian) because that I made the “conscious decision” to “retain” my tan. Anyway, I’m a big fan now that K-Beauty is coming to America…sans whitening feature. 🙂

        • Agona

          I meant to say, “before the K-beauty market started becoming a huge trend in the US”. Typo, sorry.

        • Isabella Muse

          haha too cute 🙂 There’s actually a Face Shop here in NY!!! There’s also a Skinfood Store apparently opening in the Palisades Mall 🙂 I think a lot of the Asian ones are whitening as well!!! but you can get some really nice hydrating ones as well 😀 I am too! It’s about damn time isn’t it!?

          • Agona

            Heck yeah! Especially now that I’m in my 30s and skincare is more important to me.

  • Katherine T.

    Ooh, I might try this. I have short, straight lashes, and this might do the trick, and I like Sephora carries it, so I can return if it doesn’t work out

  • Beauty Maven

    Sonia there was an amazing tube mascara they used to sell at Sephora that was called Fairy Drops– you can find it on Amazon! So sad they stopped carrying it because it was my absolute favorite!

    • Sonia

      Beauty Maven,

      Thank you for the recommendation. Do all Fairy Drops mascaras tube lashes or certain ones?
