Mega volume lashes are the new breasts. Remember when eyelash curling contraptions were the only way to get your puny lashes to behave? You can say buh-bye to brittle, barely there lashes. This crop of prize winning mascaras and lash builders take eye beautifying to a whole new level – so get ready to flutter up!

Spin Cycle – Lancome Oscillation Vibrating Infinite Powermascara and Estee Lauder Turbolash All Effects Motion Mascara revolutionized the boring brushes of yesteryear. These battery powered vibrators have extra lash building muscle. A little noisy perhaps, but they will make a convert out of you in no time. $34 and $32 respectively.

Lash Thickening Rx – The long awaited FDA approval of Latisse from Allergan, the Botox® company, is the first prescription drug that actually works for eyelash growth. It is applied once daily treatment to the base of the upper eyelashes with a disposable applicator. With continued use, your lashes will start hitting up against your shades before long. As with other hair growth meds, if you stop using it, your lashes will gradually return to where they were before you started. About $120 for a month’s supply, coming soon to a pharmacy near you.


Lashes For Less – CoverGirl LashBlast Mascara is $7 worth of pure unadulterated eyelid extravagance. The bright orange rubber bristles maximize every lash for greater curl and fullness.

Fake Out – Laura Mercier Glamour Faux Eyelashes are a pair of flexible fringy lashes that come with their own adhesive for 1960s retro glam. Good for 3-5 uses, $22

Innovators – Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes Mascara has a novel little brush tip that looks like a spiky sea urchin designed to flush out lashes from root to tip. $27

Extend-a-lash – Longcils Boncza Longcilextender Black Extreme gives new gloss to ordinary lashes by making them thicker, fuller and blacker. Comes in a glass vial with a paint on applicator, $32.

Conditioning Complex – Talika Eyelash Lipocils is a brush on conditioning treatment that keeps natural lashes healthy and strong so they don’t fall out, $40. Other good one to try – Blinc Lash Primer, $15.

      No Flake – Bobbi Brown No Smudge Mascara is not only smudge, clump and flake-proof, but waterproof too, so it stays on until you take it off without irritating even sensitive eyes.  $22.


Lash Tips – Max Factor Vivid Impact Dual Color High Definition Highlighting Mascara comes in quirky color combos for clubbing or a sultry night time look. We love Moo nlit Black, which is basic black with a silvery gray highlighter. $11.


Tool Time – If you mascara lets you down, have a lash comb at the ready to lift and separate. The Folding Lash Comb  by Tweezerman is a best buy for $7.

    I just bought my first bottle. It’s tiny. You need a prescription for it and it costs $120 for one month. Ouch.

  3. MWC Says:

    I have been using it for 2 weeks so far, so good. Ill write a full report in about 6 weeks to see how well it works. It take under a minute to apply, but it’s another thing to remember. I am excited to see the results.
