Review: LashControl, mascara YOU control
20 Sep 2010
I was sent an amazing product recently! I say ‘amazing’ because:
1) I’ve always wanted something like this, but I had never seen it before in stores. I find it very cool that I have the chance to try this now!
2) this product seems like it will solve all the problems that I had with most mascaras. It’s a very innovative and smart idea.
3) it contains organic ingredients, including chamomile flower extract, ginko biloba extract and ginseng root extract. Love this!
I’m talking about LashControl.
It’s a mascara that allows you to control the amount of mascara formula on the brush before it leaves the brush.
All you have to do is squeeze the colored part in the middle of the tube while removing the brush from the tube. This way you can regulate the desired amount of mascara by not getting too much formula on the brush. No clumpy mess! And no need to wipe the brush with a tissue or scrape the brush along the edge of the container. A cleaner brush means that fewer bacteria and irritants enter the tube.
It goes on in a thin layer and gives you a more natural look.
So I was sent three different mascaras that each had different brushes. Here they are (still wrapped in plastic):
Pink: lengthening and conditioning (in black);
Clear: Top coat control for added sheen (in clear). You can use this one for brows too (retails for $15.00);
Purple: Volumizing and conditioning (in 2xblack).
They came with directions:
1. Hold the pink section (a flexible wiper) with your thumb and first finger and unscrew the cap with your other hand.
2. As you pull brush through the flexible wiper sleeve, squeeze gently or firmly, or just pinch the tip.
3. Apply…. Then squeeze the brush clean to further lengthen and separate. You control the mascara volume and eliminate clumps for each application.
Curious? Here’s a YouTube video where you can see make up artist Scott Barnes using the mascara. And click here for LashControl’s official site!
Of course I can’t wait to try them 🙂 Expect a follow-up blog post with more pictures real soon!
