In this Instagram-influenced reality, a lot of things are changing. This social media platform together with the video tutorials on YouTube tremendously upgraded our makeup routines and skills. One thing that Instagram and influencers made us do is to try lash extensions and lash lifting. These two lash-enhancing treatments are all over our feed making it hard not to upgrade your lash game. All of a sudden mascara looks like too much work in the morning. Why bother to curl and then coat your lashes with a few layers of mascara when you can just “wake up like this?”
A killer mascara can brighten up even your worst days. Whenever you’re tired or don’t have enough time to do a full-on glam, all you need is voluminous, long lashes. So it’s easy to say that mascara is a very important product in every lady’s makeup bag. Sometimes you’ll fall in love with an expensive one, but sometimes you’ll find an affordable alternative that does magic for your lashes. We have great news from everyone’s favorite makeup brand Glossier. The label is finally launching their first mascara, Lash Slick. And you can bet it’s a good one!
“248 formulations later: the perfect everyday mascara. Lash Slick curls and sculpts as it lengthens, enhancing the look of your natural lashes instead of clumping them together or spackling them in the product. Teeny-tiny fibers coat lashes from root to tip to create a lengthened baby-extension, while flexible film-forming polymers lift and lock each fiber into place. And it’s water-resistant (not waterproof), so Lash Slick washes off easily with warm water at the end of your day.”- says the brand’s description.
The popular label shared that they’ve been working for over 18 months on developing the formula. It took them 248 formulations until they got the final product. According to the brand and the multiple reviews, it is perfect for everyday use. If you’re tired of clumps and flakes, your problems are solved. All you need is two to three swipes with the brush to get that extra dark and voluminous look.
The Lash Slick features a special technology called “Japanese Fiber Technology”, which involves tiny one and two-millimeter fibers. They grab onto your lashes from the roots to the tips and make them look amazing. Another important thing is the ingredient biotin, that helps with strength and conditioning. Glossier’s signature millennial pink color found its way to the Lash Slick packaging. The brand always wants to keep things minimal but chic. So that is exactly what they did with the mascara. The whole packaging is covered in a gorgeous baby pink color with “Glossier” and “Lash Slick” written with black letters. It is ideal for all types of lashes and eye shapes.
Glossier’s Lash Slick mascara is released for sale, you can shop it at glossier.com. Another great thing is that the brand made it quite affordable, so you can transform your lashes for $16. A lot of people seem to swear by this product already, so you might want to give it a try as well.

Leave it to Bella Hadid to introduce you to your newest spring and summer beauty obsession – colorful eyeliners and mascaras. Dior dropped the Diorshow 2018 makeup collection, a range of boldly-hued mascaras and liquid liners perfect for the upcoming sunny season. The luxury makeup brand offers an impressive range of shades and textures for everyone who wants to get creative with color.
The younger Hadid sister fronts the campaign sporting a few show-stopping makeup looks. Bella is often a minimalist when it comes to makeup, but she went bold for the Diorshow 2018 campaign. The model has rocked many bold looks on the runway, but off-duty she likes to keep things sweet and simple. Anyway, get ready to see the daring side of Bella Hadid in this new makeup campaign. Makeup artist Peter Philips used vivid shades on her eyelids such as neon pink, ultraviolet, turquoise, yellow and more. His idea was to show women that they can be “daring with color, in an elegant way”. In the campaign shots, you can see Bella flaunting multicolored layered eyeliner look, as well as ingenious feline eyeliner with different colorful mascaras on her lower and bottom lashes.
Colorful liners and mascaras certainly don’t get the attention they deserve. Mostly because a lot of women are afraid to ditch their black makeup essentials and play with color. The makeup artist behind Bella’s looks, Peter Philips shared a few tips for using colorful liners and mascaras. Since not many would dare to recreate the model’s campaign looks, he suggested using black mascara as a base and adding a touch of color just on the tips of the eyelashes. Another option is to use vibrantly-hued mascara only on the lower lashes. The possibilities are endless and it’s all up to you and your preferences. The idea of the Diorshow makeup collection is to show-off your eyes. These colorful new releases will for sure help you create a standout eye makeup look.
The Diorshow 2018 makeup collection includes 15 shades of liquid eyeliner and 5 shades of mascara. The liquid eyeliners dubbed “On Stage” come in an array of shades from white and black to vibrant red and ocean blue. The new Diorshow “Pump N’ Volume” mascaras come in five shades: black, peach, pink, purple and blue. The formula is waterproof which makes this mascara perfect for wearing on the beach as well as a night out. The price of the eyeliners is $30.50 each and of the mascaras $29.50 each.
Leave it to Urban Decay Cosmetics, to make mascaras the most exciting product in your makeup bag. The brand took the mascara game to a whole new level with their latest drop. To celebrate National Lash Day, they are launching a collection of five vibrant lash-enhancing products. So if you love experimenting with vivid eye makeup, get ready for some serious shopping.
Urban Decay’s founder and creative director, Wende Zomnir shared a first view of the products on her personal Instagram account. She couldn’t hide the excitement and also revealed that you can use the mascara both for eyelashes and eyebrows. So if you had any doubts whether this should be your next purchase, you are probably already convinced by now. Thanks to the dual character of the product, you can get creative with matte and shimmery looks. All the bold beauty junkies can even mix and match the colors and wear them in many different ways.
“It’s National Lash Day, so I cooked up something for you: Double Team Special Effect Colored Mascara. One side has a cream shade and the other a coordinating shimmer shade. Dimensional! Love it on my brows too!”
The brand’s Double Team Special Effect Colored Mascara will be available in five vibrant shades. These gorgeous rainbow-inspired hues will elevate your eye makeup. Let’s start with Urban Decay’s signature color- purple. There is no chance in the world they would miss out on this gorgeous hue, so they introduced “Vice”. “Junkshow” as one of the most beautiful colorful mascaras you’ve ever seen, that is a bold fuchsia pink.
“Deep End” will become the favorite hue for all turquoise lovers, while “Gonzo” carries a gorgeous blue tone. The last mascara is different from the rest because the dual ends feature two contrasting colors. “Dime/Goldmine”’s one side is going to paint your lashes yellow, the other one will give you a shimmering silver look. Currently, there is no other product in the market that allows you to play with so many colors on the eyelashes and the eyebrows at the same time.
Urban Decay’s Double Team Special Effect Colored Mascara collection will launch in March. Considering the prices of their other products, these mascaras are expected to be relatively affordable. According to the brand the colorful line will first launch in the USA on March 15, followed by Canada on March 19 and Europe on April 1. If you’ve been looking for a game-changing mascara, we’re pretty sure this is the one.
There are several products that should be in every woman’s makeup bag. Aside from foundation, lipstick, and blush, mascara is a must-have item for even a simple makeup look. There are many ladies out there that don’t know how to choose the right one for them. We all see the endless choices that look very much the same but are so different. And you don’t have to be a pro to know which type of wand will give you the desired effect. Even if you have short lashes, with the right mascara everything will look much better. There are also those ladies that underestimate the power of long, voluminous lashes. After they get an amazing product, they realize how life-changing it is to have the proper mascara. Allure and professional makeup artist Emily Amick teamed up for a video that will guide you through the characteristics of 24 types of wands.
Starting from spiral, hourglass, triangle, curved, to fun shapes such as dome tip or spiky ball tip, the options can be really confusing. That is why you should spare some of your time and learn which shape is the best for your lashes.
The first type of wand you need to know about is the spiral one. According to Emily, it is also the first one you’ll buy. This brush is ideal for short lashes since it gives a lot of volume to them. Amick’s advice is to remove all the excess mascara off the brush when applying the first coat. With the minimal amount of product, the wand will separate each lash. Plus, you avoid unwanted clumps. The best way to apply is to start from the roots and do a little wiggle with the brush. After the first one, you can add as many coats as you want.
If you have average or longer lashes the spiral wand will be a great addition to your makeup bag. If your lashes are short, then you should go for a skinny wand. For the lower lashes, the easiest and best way is to move the brush vertically.
There is one brush that you won’t find very often but will bring a lot of drama and volume to your look. The tri-spherical wand is made of three separate balls of bristles. In between them, there is a space that serves as a reservoir for the product. That is why this type gives thick and voluminous looks. The application process is the same as with any other wand. Don’t forget to watch the video for the full guide on mascara wands.
