Sadly enough I am cursed with short lashes. I tried lash extentions for two years but it was no succes. The twisted lashes and constantly sleeping on my back made me decide to stop with the extentions. I have lost a lot of lashes due to the extentions so I wouldn’t recommend it. After the lash disaster I have decided to grow out my own lashes but I didn’t had enough money to spend on Revitalash or any other expensive lash growth serum, so I had to look for a subsititute.
The first mascara base (34,95/10ml) from Dior Backstage that gives lashes up to twice the volume.
A stroke of genius from Backstage at the fashion shows, this unprecedented mascara base combines the immediate enhancing effect of mascara with the benefits of daily lash-care.
My new HG lash primer. I use this before applying mascara. It sits very well under my mascara and to be bloody honest I can’t live without this primer anymore. My lashes look thick and lengthened, I guess because of the hyaluronic acid with plumping properties. I don’t use it as a intensive night treatment because I simply forget to do that. For me it works wonders in combination with my YSL mascara.
My lashes are growing slowly but they look very nice and full. I know that a lash growth serum will speed up the proces but Dior works perfect for me. The 10 ml mascara tube lasts me a good four to five month and it doesn’t turn clumpy. The applicator made from supple elastomer divides my lashes very good.
Please keep in mind that the primer turns hard very quick, because of that I apply my mascara directly after using the primer. I apply one coat of the Dior Show Maximizer Lash Plumbing Serum before applying my two coats of mascara.
Because of the white colour I don’t use it solo, I need to use it in combination with my:
Achieve absolute dramatic lashes in a single stroke for eyes that instantly pop. Its secret is the Triple-Intensity Formula: intense volume, intense color and now intense care. The nylon fiber brush coats each lash in deep color and maximum volume from root to tip, while B5 Pro-Vitamin strengthens and protects lashes. Available in 6 signature YSL shades to compliment eye color or to create a customized look.
I use this mascara (33,95/7,5ml) in ‘black’ and ‘brown’ I love the brown shade because it is so soft and natural. Brown mascara is just perfect for the office or other daytime events. This mascara is awesome! I did a little review over here.
Overall two must haves items!
Dior and YSL are available at selective beauty stores like Douglas, ICI Paris and Bijenkorf.
