This is Prescriptives False Eyelashes Mascara. I've been using it for the past 2 years. I like it in brown more than black. I ran out recently.
Now, I've been getting my skin care and cosmetics for half price or free for the past 8 years. Last January was the end of those days (for now). But I've had plenty of most things on hand. I have had to buy some skincare. And I'm spoiled now having used the nice brands for so long.
My first job in cosmetics began in 1999 at what I call the "Et Cetera" counter. After a year of working there, I moved. About 6 months later I got a job working at the Lancome counter. I worked there for several months and then started freelancing as a makeup artist for Lancome's special events, which allowed me to only work 2 days a month. I did that for 3 years. During the last year of that I began my own home-based business selling Mary Kay. I did Mary Kay for about 3.5 years. Then I began a job as the counter-manager of a Prescriptives counter. I love all three brands I worked for (I also really like Clairins). I like a few select items from other brands I was exposed to as well. Let me know if you ever have questions regarding your skincare regime or cosmetics, I love sharing my knowledge.
Anyway, back to mascara. When I ran out of my "false eyelashes" I decided I didn't want to spend $19 to replace the tube with the same stuff. What other mascaras do I like? Lancome, but theirs is $22 and Mary Kay which is $15 and I believe has been recently reformulated so I may not like it that much anymore. Well, my mom has always liked the pink & green drugstore mascara, but I never did. But I believe there must be some very good drugstore mascaras out there that cost less than $10. I was very amused at the Wal-Mart selections that boasted 3x, 5x, and 8x the volume. How much volume is too much? Is 3x enough? Where is 6x? I took a random shot and bought Cover Girl's VolumeExact in brown. I'm not very impressed. It seems to flake off a bit (I frequently use eye drops and also rub my eyes), which irritates my sensitive eyes. I never had a problem with my False Eyelashes.
I'm looking for something water-resistant or at least smudgeproof, but not waterproof, and that gives a little volume. Any suggestions??
