Anastasia Lash Lifting Mascara Review

January 5, 2010

I have always been a fan of Anastasia eyebrow products so when I read that Kim Kardashian loves the Lash Lifting Mascara ($22), I immediately dug up the sample that was sent to me to see what it was all about.

Anastasia Lash Lifting Mascara

The Lash Lifting Mascara is a multi-effect mascara that promises to thicken and curl. It is formulated with hard waxes to help build lashes and synthetic polymers to give body and volume. It only comes in 1 color, Black.

The brush was medium-sized and reached the roots of my top and bottom lashes easily. I still need to use an eyelash curler to get that curled look but the brush did give my lashes a nice lift.

The formula was a lot thicker and drier than most mascaras. It delivered volume without too much clumping but flaked horribly. I always ended up with tiny flecks of mascara all over my face and had to take an extra minute cleaning up. Other than that, the mascara wore pretty well and washed off easily with soap and water.

Overall, this was a very average mascara and at this price, I would definitely have expected more from it. I guess I will go back to my Rimmel The Max Volume Flash Mascara for now.

    Yes, the formula is substantially drier than most mascaras I have. I thought that I got a dried up tube but your review confirms that is really is quite dry. I don’t like it because it clumps terribly on me.

    I actually really love this mascara. I have deep set eyes and so every time I have a mascara that is really “Wet” it’s just about impossible to keep it from smearing on my eyes, lids all over. And even if I manage that..those formulas just somehow melt off my lashes by mid-day more if it’s hot. The less wet formula with whatever it is inside that clings onto my lashes and allows me to build a lot of volume and really does lift my lashes which makes my eyes look more open. And this one I can wear all day and it never smudges or creates dark circles under my eyes,it’s incredible! So, I think everyone has different preferences, but this has been a savior for me.
