The drugstores are where the new makeup is right now! I was recently blown away by how much goodness was waiting for me at CVS/Pharmacy. Love it! (If you aren't a member of their Beauty Club, join now and save serious cash.)
Let's take a look at the new Volume Mascara by LashBlast and three of the Shineshadows (Ice Queen, Color of Money and Platinum Club).
The mascara is huge. All over, huge. It contains two wands - one for volume and one to intensify your lashes. The result is pretty stunning!
Apply the color with your fingers or a densely packed brush. I found that I didn't really need a primer to make these shadows look pretty and shine all night. I personally like to apply this with my fingers for a smudgy, sexy look.
You can build up the pigment and the shine by adding a few layers of the shadow. Just be sure to let the first layer "dry down" before adding a second layer.
Two of the colors I tried were darker, smoky colors. Be sure to pat the shadow onto the lid or you'll be left with a lot of smoky pigments and not a lot of color.
The mascara didn't flake or clump and I was truly surprised at how much length and volume I was able to build into my own lashes. The Shineshadows are nice, but I wish the darker colors stayed true and didn't fade out to smoky shades so quickly. The Ice Queen shade is lovely!
