Shut your eyes and attempt to think about swiping on mascara with two completely different brushes directly. Earlier than attempting out the brand new Beauténotions Immaculash 360 Mascara, I believed that was unattainable. The truth is, the thought by no means crossed my thoughts earlier than as a result of it did not appear humanly attainable to perform with out poking your self within the eye or getting mascara in every single place however your lashes. However Beauténotions made making use of mascara with two brushes directly attainable with an revolutionary two-in-one wand that clamps onto lashes like tongs or a flat iron with a press of a button. With one sweep, the set of brushes coats lashes on all sides. (Extra on that later.) I’ve by no means seen something prefer it. Uncertain of how precisely making use of mascara with two brushes directly advantages lashes, I made a decision to place the contraption to the check.
Upon nearer examination, one facet of the patent-pending wand has a dome-shaped brush with lengthy, full bristles you’ll sometimes discover on some other mascara affixed within the center. The opposite is a slimmer brush with quick, teeny-tiny bristles you’d normally see on a lower-lash mascara. Each are linked to at least one deal with.
Once I apply mascara, I sometimes do not coat the topside of my higher lashes — simply the undersides. That sounds awkward, nevertheless it’s the technical approach of claiming I put mascara on like most individuals.
Make-up artists usually alternate swiping mascara onto the underside and topside of lashes “to thicken and darken the entire lash as a result of it provides distinction,” New York Metropolis-based make-up artist Benjamin Puckey explains. “Studio lightning eats away on the definition of lashes, in any other case.”
Nonetheless, the Immaculash 360 Mascara coats each side concurrently for a lush, dimensional lash look. Evidently, the 360-degree lash-coating side, because the mascara’s identify implies, was a brand new expertise for me.
The Software Method
With the Immaculash 360 Mascara, you sandwich your lashes between the brushes earlier than swiping via. To take action, you begin off by positioning the smaller brush on high close to the roots of your lashes. Subsequent, you press the button on the deal with to push the wands collectively. Then, you sweep the wands via to the information of your lashes — whereas holding the button down.
Actually, the brushes did not clamp down as tightly as I believed or hoped they might. Earlier than attempting it out, I believed it might pinch down my lashline like a lash roller, which is my worst nightmare. As a substitute, the bristles felt like they had been hardly touching my lashes. Perhaps I am simply aggressive when making use of mascara, however I favor to wiggle and roll the wand via my lashes and press in opposition to the roots to make my lashes look thicker and curled. Regardless of the mild stress of the Immaculash 360 Mascara, its brushes evenly coated my lashes, in addition to helped lengthen and thicken them.
You can even use the brushes individually, so after a pair swipes with the brushes pressed collectively, I went again in with them individually. Utilizing the brushes on their very own feels awkward at first, I have to admit. At first, I used to be afraid the comb that wasn’t in use would poke me within the eye or press in opposition to my face indirectly and wreck my make-up. That fortunately did not occur, although. The fuller brush helped curl my lashes and add additional quantity, whereas the slimmer one helped me attain the tiny lashes and coat my decrease lashes.
My different gripe with the Immaculash 360 Mascara is the formulation is extremely thick. It tends to be gloppy and make lashes clump collectively when you’re not cautious. A fast repair is wiping the mascara off on the facet of the tube, so the brushes aren’t as saturated with product.
