When it comes to mascara I am usually picky if not overly picky. For one, if its not waterproof I can pretty much say that I 9 out of 10 times will NOT like it. My lashes are finicky when it comes to mascara. They are straight in some areas, over curled by nature in others, and overall they don’t like anything that is not going to coat them well and tame them in place- no matter how much I curl them with my trusty Kevyn Aucoin eyelash curler- they just HATE everything apparently. That is until now….
Now me and mascara go way back. From the high end likes of CHANEL to Yves Saint Laurent all the way to my drugstore go-to’s, mascara has always been one thing I NEVER and I repeat NEVER leave my house without. With a bit of mascara a girl can always take on the world, right? Enter Physicians Formula Eye Booster™ Instant Lash Extension Kit, this new kit promises to deliver some instant lash boosting, long term results with length, density, drama, fullness and definition. The formula promises to last 24 hours, no clumps, flakes or smudges. Does it really work?
Now I have been using this kit for a few weeks now and OMG I am hooked. At first I thought that maybe two tubes would be a pain to manage, but WOW this stuff ROCKS. Literally it kills it in the long lasting category- it lasts maybe a bit longer than 24 hours. It helps the lashes look va-va-voom within minutes. I rocked this recently on a night out with the girls and we dance the night away. And let me just say this stuff did NOT budge a bit. My eye makeup usually after a sweaty night out dancing looks like dark circle, raccoon action, but not with this formula- it stayed in place like no other. My eye makeup literally looked exactly like it had when I first applied it 8 hours earlier. One word- OBSESSED! The best part of the new Physicians Formula Eye Booster™ Instant Lash Extension Kit is that the formula lasts 24 hours- AMAZING! This paraben free, gluten free and fragrance free formula itself is primarily made from cellulose, Vitamin E, botanical extracts, made with natural colorants found in artichokes and basil and the best thing is it requires NO glue or lash strips. I think I may have just found my new favorite mascara.
Here is my simple go to daytime eye makeup look with 3 easy products.
- Physicians Formula Eye Booster™ Instant Lash Extension Kit
- Favorite One Wash Color Shade
- Favorite Eye Crayon
- Eye Liner/Eye Smudger Brush
STEP 1: Lightly dab the One Wash color shade of your choice from the lash line to the brow bone. This will help give the eyes a bit of color and depth
STEP 2: To enhance the eyes even more we are going to give them a good smudged out liner. Lightly line the eyes at the upper lash line, and for more depth take a bit of the crayon and add to the lower lash line.
STEP 3: Lightly smudge the liner out to create a subtle, smoky effect
STEP 4: Grab the Physicians Formula Lash Boosting Mascara tube and sweep across the lashes coating them and prepping them for the fibers
STEP 5: Follow the first coat of mascara with the Physicians Formula Brush-On Extensions while the mascara is still a bit wet to instantly watch your lashes grow. TIP: To help not have fallout of the fibers-lightly blow and tap any excess ones off the wand prior to application.
STEP 6: Finalize and seal your look with one more coat of Physicians Formula Lash Boosting Mascara. This will seal your look and your lashes will look AMAZING- I promise. If you want to increase the length and volume of lashes then repeat STEPS 4 and 5 until your reach your desired effect.
So what do you think? Are you looking for drama without the glue, lash strips or expensive lash extension price tag? Does the new Physicians Formula Eye Booster™ Instant Lash Extension Kit sound easy enough? Then you NEED to run not walk to your nearest drugstore and grab yourself a kit of this amazing goodness.
