Hey there lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.
I am always on a quest to find my lashes! I used to have long thick eyelashes when I was younger, now I’m nearing 60 (next month) they have become sparse and so bloody straight. I can cope with them being sparse alright, but I hate that they have lost their oomph and curl, I want them to open up my eyes again. My eyes have become hooded over the years too which makes my lashes look even more non-existent. I did buy an eyelash serum to use at night to help regrowth, but I have always forgotten to use it in my nighttime routine. I’ll get back to using it (it’s a No7 one) and write a review, maybe that will spur me on to get the stuff on my lashes. But it is something you have to wait a while to see results of, and I’m not the most patient of women. I’d have to wait at least 3 months. If you think this is something you would like to see from me, leave me a comment.
Anyhoo, to give me a bit of confidence back, and some eyelashes I purchased a lash primer and mascara from the brand Essence.
I bought Lashes of the Day super volume mascara and Volume Booster lash primer. Let me start at the first base with the eyelash primer. This is infused with acai oil and mango butter to nourish the lashes, it’s white in colour when applied with the mascara wand applicator. You obviously apply it to your eyelashes before mascara let it dry for a few moments, then apply your mascara. It doesn’t dry down hard and crispy, my lashes still felt really soft. I had to have a sniff of the product, and to me, it smelt fruity. The brush is great at the lash separation, and got right to the really tiny lashes on the inside of my eyes, and also my bottom ones too. This is really great stuff! I have used it for all my various mascara brands and each time it has given me great eyelashes, and I feel more confident with the way my makeup looks. I tried to take some photos of my eyes to pop on here myself, but I just couldn’t do it. I will see if I can get Mark to take some for me, of me and I’ll post over on my Instagram at a later date. I purchased my Essence lash primer from Wilko in my local town, you can also get it from HERE.
The mascara I purchased to go with the lash primer is this one from Essence, Lashes of the Day Super Volume mascara. It doesn’t seem to be on the Wilko website right now so I’m not sure if it’s been discontinued or not. I tried this mascara with the primer and without, and I’m quite happy with my eyelashes without it. The brush is a great size and shape and grabs hold of all my lashes, even the tiny ones. I don’t like a mascara that’s too wet and this one isn’t, it applies brilliantly. My lashes don’t feel hard and crunchy and it doesn’t flake off during the day either. A really great mascara, in my opinion. As I said I purchased this mascara from my local Wilko store, but it doesn’t seem to be on their website so I can’t leave a link to this one.
Thank you for stopping by today.
