I'm not a fan of using multiple brands of mascara at once because I like to keep things simple. To me, and this is only my opinion, a good mascara should be able to do everything you need it to do. But for the sake of Fairydrops, I will go the extra mile.
I have layered my lashes with one coat of CoverGirl Exact Eyelights waterproof mascara for the sole purpose of keeping the curl in my lashes. I layered one coat of Fairydrops over that for the smudge-proof-ability.
Fairydrops still manages to pull down some of the curl but it's not as drastic as before. I can be okay with this.
Layering both mascaras has increased the power of the volume!
CoverGirl's lengthening ability is, on a scale of meh-to-great, okay and decent. When combined with Fairydrops, I'd have to say that the length is comparable to the length I was able to achieve with the fibers in Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus.
Nah. Both of these mascaras never smudged that much so I'm not even going to worry about it.
A little clumping goes on. CoverGirl does a great job at lifting and separating each lash. But when you layer Fairydrops over it, I think the weight of the formula and the different wand shapes work together to clump up some of the lashes.
I like to keep it simple, so having to work with mascara like this isn't the best way for me to start my day. I'm curious....
What are some things you do to go the extra mile for beauty?
