Squeezey Does It - Lash Control Mascara




Behold a new and unique contender in the lash batter market. A novel idea, patented to save you product, time, grubby mitts and mascara filled tissues. A squeezable mascara tube, no less. Genius.

Promising to banish raccoon eyes and stay in place until you remove it with warm water, I was intrigued to test this out.




Simply squeeze the rubber insert as you pull the wand for your desired amount of product.





A firm grip will mean very little product on the brush (which is way up the better end of mascara brush offerings) to create a natural lash look. 






And a looser hold will mean mucho mascara to work with for a more dramatic look.

Must say, I like this. A lot. The idea, at first, seemed a little gimmicky to me but I've been trialling this for a week now and my lashes have held their look and lasted all day, every time.

It does have a tendency toward flaky into the evening but all in all it's a good wear. I'm not so sure about the removal with warm water though, any mascara that can stay put all day will need something a little more than uisce for removal, again, I'm not complaining but it's worth noting.

There are 3 variations of this mascara in Lash Control's line up, two black and one clear, both black offerings are available over on the wonderful Cloud10Beauty.com for €20 each, who very kindly supplied this sample for my perusal. 


What say we? Intriguez vous?
