We interrupt your regularly scheduled program to discuss mascara. If you have been reading my blog for any amount of time you will inevitably come upon my latest mascara obsession. I am true to many a beauty product but I am an out right tart when it comes to mascara. One day I am in love the next I never want to see it again, fickle. I am a demanding mascara wearer, I have needs that must be met and I can always be coerced into trying the next best thing. The loyalty is just not there. My latest infatuation? L'Oreal's Voluminous False Fiber lashes mascara. As you, Smarty Pants, may have inferred it gives you the look of false eyelashes. Will your lashes look like Gwen Stefani's? I doubt it, those look truly false to me, but I am a mascara advertising cynic. Here's the scoop I do think this is a great alternative to wearing false eyelashes, some of you are not like me and don't/won't take the time to attach individual false lashes at the corners of your eyes to have a doe-eyed look the next time you go to the grocery store. I love me some lashes, what can I say? I can be lazy though, that doesn't mean I would dare go mascara-less, but I have been known to not wear my falsies. That's where this mascara comes in handy. You definitely will need to work a little harder with it then your usual mascara, it dries fast and clumps because of the fiber additive going on, but that can be combed out and gosh darn does this mascara truly get you extra long lashes. I put on a couple coats and when my eyes are open my lashes almost hit my eyebrows. We're talking looooong. I didn't have trouble with it running or flaking, both things I won't tolerate. It's not for everyday errand running (unless you are me or a Kardashian). It's a fun mascara, wear it when you have a couple extra seconds to get ready and you are around someone that can appreciate your effort (like your best friend).

Good to know! Like you, I love me some long lashes :) Thanks for the low-down, T!

I am a full on makeup whore. >.<

I have fallen in love with Maybelline Falsies in Black Drama and use it as my main mascara. I'll curl my lashes, put that on and a little tinted moisturizer and BAM I'm good for the day.

The only thing I am monogamous for is Revlon Nail Polish. It's the only stuff that doesn't make me feel like my fingers weigh a ton.

Jamie this is some good stuff I tell ya! Mrs. Soup, I LOVE that mascara too! I especially like the brush, great for doe-eyed effect. I actually had gone to the store to get more of it but than the Vouminous called my nae (and was on sale, so...) I should do a whole post on what product we can't live without and why. I am SO nosy and always love to be let on to a cosmetic secret!

I am right there with you on the mascara train and still using the L'Oreal voluminous collagen that you recommended well over a year ago (the regular voluminous does *nothing* for me, I've discovered).

I started wearing individual falsies last month and I have to say it's cut into my mascara usage significantly. I use the permanent glue so I only ever need to apply a few lashes a day as they shed and I don't wear any mascara unless I'm going to a party. I'm obsessed. It takes a little longer than applying mascara but on the other hand I save time in the evening because I don't have to remove eye make up! (My most hated task)

what brand falsh lashes do you wear? I've always wanted to try it but I'm scared!

Rachel a girl after my own heart! I don't know about this permanent glue though, do tell! Oni, I use the Andrea individuals from the drug store, super inexpensive + good quality, it takes practice (you can have a make up artist teach you). I just practiced until I can throw them on as fast as I swipe on my mascara!
