Clarins Instant Definition Mascara
It takes a lot to wow me when it comes to a mascara but I was wow’d and then some with CLARINS’ new Instant Definition Mascara ($24 @ bloomingdales.com) from the Fall 2011 Color Definition Collection. This one truly adds volume, length but I would recommend using a lash comb like this one so you are in control and it does not control you, as mascaras sometimes can.
Instead of the usual 4, 5, 7 swipes, this one only takes about 3 max, so it’s a time saver too, haha. A few secrets inside this one – Glycoproteins to thicken lashes and help them stay adhered for a long time and also the unique brush, which they call a Dual Fiber Brush. It’s patent pending and uses Elastomer Bristles to reach each lash. It kind of reminds me of a doe foot (like on a lip gloss) at the tip of the wand that has spoolie bristles on it. Big recommendation!
