Sorry for the delay! To make up for it, I’m not only showing you one promised incidence in which L’Oreal’s Lash Boosting Serum is used under mascara… I’m showing you two!
(On a side note: can you even have that many apostrophes in a word? How are you supposed to make something like L’Oreal possessive? Hmm.)
I’m starting to see some changes in my lashes after using the serum for two weeks! They don’t look drastically longer or fuller, but they do look a touch longer. What I’m really noticing, though, is that my lashes feel healthier — and not in the PRspeak kind of way. Usually, when I’m not wearing mascara often (ie. I’ll wear it once or twice in a month,) they simply feel thicker, like there’s more resistance to them when you touch them. On the other hand, when I do wear mascara on a regular basis, my lashes tend to feel a little (but not too terribly much) softer, like I’ve just had a brief sit in a steam room. Now, though I’m wearing mascara daily, my lashes feel as healthy as they do when I don’t wear it at all for weeks on end.
But alas! that’s not really what I’m supposed to be discussing today. Nope… today is about how this baby layers! And layer it does. Keep in mind as you look at the photos that this is one coat of mascara, and it’s quite combed out — I like a super-natural everyday lash, one that makes it look like you a) aren’t actually wearing mascara, and b) have really bloody brilliant lashes.
Check out images of how Lash Boost layers behind the cut!
To start us off, here’s Fresh Supernova over the serum. I was having a “bad lash day,” unfortunately… my lashes just look so messy, especially the lower ones! Supernova and Lash Boosting give a really gorgeous feathery effect that I’m quickly falling for.
And here’s Imju Fiberwig over the serum — this is what my lashes wear most days. I’m quite impressed with it! My lashes look long and separated, just how I like them. Though Fiberwig’s crunchy, it does give a shinier effect than most mascaras (which I love,) and it holds a curl amazingly. The latter is quite helpful when you’re working with a lash serum, as they take a lot of the curl out of your lashes already!
(Review of Fiberwig here. If you’re going to compare the images; compare these to the “everyday lash”! The same application method and ammount of mascara were used for both the original review and the lashes below.)
