If eyes are the windows to the soul, then I want only the most fabulous window treatments – and that’s why I go nowhere without mascara. For me, mascara is a staple, like bread – or chocolate.
I was thrilled to be sent a sample of LashControl® Mascara. Billed as “high-tech simplicity at its best,” LashControl comes in a tube that allows you to control the amount of mascara released on the wand. Squeeze the built-in wiper sleeve as you pull the brush through the wand and remove excess mascara – which remains in the wand. It’s simply genius and allows the brush to be used as an applicator and separator. It cuts down on waste and reduces clumping. I hate it when I pull the applicator out of the tube and the mascara is a lumpy mess that I have to wipe on a tissue. To me, mascara is priceless and I hate wasting it. Plus, with LashControl, there are no more clumps!
LashControl mascara is infused with botanicals including ginko biloba, chamomile flower extract and ginseng root extract to help condition and hydrate lashes. It comes in three formulations: Pink Squeeze to lengthen and condition, $20.; Purple Squeeze for volume and conditioning, $20.; and Clear Squeeze which can be used as a top coat for extra luster or alone to groom brows, $16. And it’s one shade of black which, in my opinion, is the only color for lashes.
I like this mascara a lot. (That’s seriously high praise coming from mascara-loving me.) I played around with the squeezing mechanism to see if the mascara itself clumped when I didn’t control the amount. It didn’t. The formula and color are rich and made my lashes pop with only one coat. I was so happy with my new gift, I tucked it into my makeup case posthaste to ensure that it would be used every day.
