Lisa: Tool of the Week

Over the last 15 years or so, I've tried a lot of mascaras. Luckily, I wasn't makeup-age during the era of the colored lashes, but I've tried every tube my mom ever bought (Clinique, Arbonne, and various other high end stuff), every brand they sell at the drugstore, and some things in between.

By far, the best mascara I've ever used is...


The tube is divided in half, with one end being a whitish "lengthening primer" and the other end the black top coat. No lie, this mascara does make my lashes look significantly longer and more full. My natural eyelashes are barely average, but when I started wearing Intense XXL...

  • My mom (who historically only comments on my eye makeup to say that it makes me look like I've been crying) said my eyes looked very glamorous.

  • Defying husband stereotypes everywhere, Blake told me my lashes looked "long and luxurious."

  • A woman I was helping at the library told me I should be an EYELASH MODEL. No, really.
  • This is obviously no ordinary mascara. Try it! And tell me about your favorite beauty product in the comments!

    That is awesome mascara. And I think we all know what my favorite beauty product is. Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Lip Gloss.

    L'Oreal's new signature lipsticks--Keri's Rosewood --the perfect natural pink.

    I also use this mascara and love it... But sometimes run into clumping problems... Any advice? hee hee.

    The best mascara I ever used was one with a white primer on one end too (English Ideas brand). I'm actually looking for something with a more natural look right now since I don't wear a lot of eye makeup and my lashes are already very long.

    i totally use this masacara - it is awesome for me because my lashes naturally are thin and short and this definitely helps a ton. it won't clump if you only do one layer each of the white and the black.
