Hi lovelies! Three quick Qs from the Lipstick League this week about mascara: Black or brown? Volumizing or lengthening? Waterproof or washable? Here's what the Beautygeeks team has to say:
ManiGeek: Black. Lengthening, simply b/c volumizing clumps my sparse lashes together and I end up with 5 thick things. Waterproof. Always.
Liza (LEEZA): Black, black, black, and if some gets pushed between the lashes to look like smudged eyeliner, well, I totally planned that. Lengthening and I'll add another coat after it dries and before heading out the door and voilà – the effect is both lengthening and volumizing. (I like the thinner formula of lengthening. I get too much glop with a volumizer.) Washable because I wear contact lenses. Waterproof makes me want to claw my eyes out if a flake sneaks its way under a lens.
Cranky Beauty Pants: Black. Either. Washable.
Janine: Black. Carbon black. Volumizing, because lengthening formulas turn my sparse lashes into long sparse thin thorns. The right volumizing mascara gives me magic. Washable – waterproof is too much of a pain in the arse to remove the way I like to remove eye makeup. #micellarcleanser
