Review | Too Faced Lash Injection mascara
Too Faced’s Lip Injection may not have turned out to be the plumping gloss of my dreams, but that’s no reason to neglect the rest of their line, so I bought their Lash Injection
at the same time, optimistically imagining a future in which I’d walk around with huge lips and extra-long eyelashes. Ah, the things we do for beauty!
As you know, the bee-stung lips didn’t quite happen for me, and I’m dissapointed to report that I didn’t have much more success with the long lashes, either.
"Skyscraper length and weather-proof colour, your lashes will be transformed with Toofaced extreme plumping action."
This comes in a slightly smaller-than-average tube, but is otherwise much the same as any other mascara you’ve seen. The brush is short and on the fat side, which is one of the things I dislike when using mascara – I much prefer a longer, thinner brush – but I persevered for the sake of those skyscraper lashes.
Not so much "skycraper" as "two storey building" I’m afraid. It didn’t hold the curl on my lashes, which I could almost have forgiven it for if it wasn’t for the fact that it didn’t hugely lengthen them, either. I did notice some thickening, and the staying power was good: I wore this on an 7-hour overnight flight, and it didn’t flake or crumble, which is a major point in its favour. Overall, it could make a reasonably good day-to-day mascara, if you’re not looking for length or volume. Me, I’m all about drama when it comes to mascara, so my Lancome L’Extreme remains undefeated…
