Re: Recommendations for Mascara

I will add that for me, Grandelash grew more lashes. When I first started using it I could see little new lashes growing in amongst the old ones. They were so cute! And they all "grew up" together, so to speak, so it was easy to track their progress. It was when I could no longer distingu...

Re: Recommendations for Mascara

I've been wanting to try this ever since you mentioned it on another thread a while back... But I wrote to the company twice - a month apart - and they never answered my emails, and I hate that...plus it was a while back so I forgot about it. Do you get the product directly from their site? I haven...

Re: Recommendations for Mascara

Phoenix: I have used various mascaras for 35+ years and Diorshow (the original, basic one) was the best. I never had flakes, or smudges, even though it is very humid where I live. It is also thickening and curling without clumping. They have a new Dior Curling mascara which goes on about 10% thinne...

Re: Recommendations for Mascara

I use GrandeLash growth simulator, which is available without a prescription. All I can say is that it really works for me. I'm part Asian and my lashes were short and straight before I started using this product. They're now long and curved - I can go without mascara but most days I don't. Before,...

Re: Recommendations for Mascara

^Cost can vary. On average, a kit, which is supposed to be about a 1-month supply, is about $120. However, I have found that a kit can last longer than a month. One thing that I learned is that I would use Latisse daily until my lashes reached a desired length and then I would cut back on using the...

Re: Recommendations for Mascara

I have really sensitive skin and eyes too and I've been using Blinc mascara without reactions. It doesn't smudge, I didn't get raccoon eyes in the rain, and comes off with plain warm water in "tubes" with no residue. If it helps you decide, I also have oily eyelids - eyeliner never stays ...

Re: Recommendations for Mascara

Like many of you ladies here, I'm reading this thread with great interest. I have naturally very short lashes (am Asian, one of the very few features I dislike about being Asian, lol).

Re: How has your bling style evolved?

Mine has changed quite a bit over the years. When I was a teenager & in my early 20's and living in London, my mum gave me diamonds but I hardly wore them; eventually giving them all back to her. However, when I came to Asia, everything changed!! I got my engagement ring (a 1ct G VVS1 MRB) and t...

Yes and no. I didn't want to get married and yet I did. I thought I'd be in academia (loved loved school) or be a scientist.

Just for fun, my diamond collection, last yr (I think). I'm now plus and minus a few pieces.
