Stila: Fiber Optics Mascara

Mmmm mascara. The mighty tool that women wield to make everyone they encounter powerless. Some may say it’s might or wit, but no; it’s mascara.

I’d been going through a deceptively natural phase of late, using volumizing brown mascara so it wasn’t patently obvious that I was using it, yet there was oomph. I’d nearly forgotten the power of lash extending black mascara until the recent Stila makeover experience. Oh the power is back.

The scoop on this variant of mascara is that it’s formulated not to turn into the hard crusty mess that mascara usually dries into. You know what I’m talking about. You’ve had your eye makeup on for 12 hours and the mascara reaches a point where it can do nothing put irritate your eyes with it’s dry crusty evility. Yes I just made that word up. Fiber Optics Mascara claims to stay soft for hours and generally speaking it does. In reality the fact that it stays soft at all is pretty impressive. Touch your eyelashes a couple of minutes after they’ve dried and you’ll see what I’m talking about. Deceptively soft, full and thick. Evil in the good way.
