Dazzlelash Mascara Update & Review

Update on Dazzlelash: This formula just isn’t working out for me!  Some days it flakes, some days it smudges, and then other days it lasts all day.  I just can’t deal with a mascara that’s as finicky as I am!  What Dazzlelash excels at is lengthening lashes and separating them.  You’ll find it harder to clump up as you apply multiple coats with this formula.  It has a nice richness in its black color, too.  I don’t feel it thickens much (if at all), which is a drawback for me as I need thickening for my stubby, wispy lashes.  I found this was more likely to smudge/flake when I used it with Prep + Prime Lash than without it.  It removes easily (no stubborness), and if you’re in the market for separation and length, you ought to check this out if you can.  This seems like a mascara that people either love or just find so-so, but I haven’t heard from too many who outright dislike it.  Plushlash still holds as my go-to mascara (along with Lancome Oscillation and Chanel Exceptionnel) for the time being.

Summer 2008 – Urban Decay Summer Line Review

Colored Big Fatty Mascara ($17.00) is Urban Decay’s colored version of their famous Big Fatty mascara. Colored mascara can be a great way to pop open peepers on lazy days or minimalist days (especially blues/purples). Wende Zomnir, Urban Decay’s Creative Director, says “A colored mascara is the perfect summer beauty uniform.” Big Fatty mascara adds decent volume and length to lashes–it’s probably not my favorite mascara formula (Plushlash, love ya!), but I did use it for many months in the past, so obviously it caught my fancy!
