I remember going to the MAC counter at Nordstrom a few years ago and a new MA came over to help me. I typically bond with one MA at a counter and I admit I’ll leave if they aren’t there! It’s rare that I want to talk to someone else as I feel like my personal MA knows me a little better than someone new. As in they know I’m going to buy, as in they know I don’t need an aggressive sales push to get me to buy, and they know I don’t want them touching my face and pushing me to try things on.
I made an exception that day when I headed into Nordstrom and I talked to a new MA and she was nice! The thing I remember most about that day was her lashes. She had super long and luxurious lashes. They obviously weren’t fake and I asked her what she had used on them to get them that long.
She proceeded to tell me…
That she uses four mascaras! FOUR! One for her bottom lashes and three on her upper! I have to admit I cringed as I was thinking oh gosh breakage! I’ve actually never used more than one mascara but that day got me curious and I decided to start mixing and matching two mascaras (I didn’t dare goop on four of them).
I didn’t like the results to be honest. I felt my lashes looked gooey and too overly done. It was just not the look for me.
Several years later and here I am trying this out again. I started using my beloved Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes with a little It Cosmetics Super Hero on top. Super Hero is notoriously thick and gooey but it actually works nicely on top of Lights, Camera, Lashes. I get fuller, longer lashes easily doing this and it’s actually not gooey, clumpy, or overly done!
Do you use two or more mascaras in your look?
