Tested for you: Mascara „High Impact“ from Isadora

10 seconds High Impact Lift & Curl in an intense black – that’s what the new mascara from Isadora promises. Sounds good to me. But with the many mascaras I’ve tried over the years as a beauty journalist, I’ve had to wipe plenty of failures from my lashes. Either they clumped the hairs instead of separating them, or during the day the color crumbled onto my cheeks. The mascara brush, an essential tool That the Isadora mascara is cruelty-free, vegan-friendly, ophthalmologist-tested and contains no perfume, I am already positive. I am anxious to see what my test yields. First, I take a closer look at the brush, because that is an important factor for perfectly mascaraed lashes. This brush has a straight shape and is also not too thick. With it, the lashes can be separated beautifully and effectively. The second plus point is the light, creamy texture. Now I am ready to go. Zigzag, zigzag I put the brush close to the edge of the eyelid on the lash line and apply the color with small zigzag movements from the root to the tip. The eyelashes can be perfectly separated with it and get a curl already with the first application, as I usually achieve it only with the eyelash curler. The eyes look immediately more open. With the second application I achieve maximum length and volume. I also experience no negative surprises during the day. The mascara is water repellent and lasts extra long. Nothing smudges from the black color, nothing crumbles. The brush, by the way, is also narrow enough that you could also mascara the lashes on the lower lid edge without patching. I do not like it because I find that the eyes look so doll-like when upper and lower lashes were painted. Key ingredients And now about the ingredients and equipment of the eyelash brush. Plant fibers with castor oil – the bristles are made of natural nylon material – make the lashes longer. Due to natural polymers, the texture of the mascara is soft and easy to apply. Castor oil is also in the formulation of the color, because it has a moisturizing effect and keeps the lashes elastic. For volume and that the lashes separate well from each other and do not clump together provide various waxes. „10 Sec High Impact Lift & Curl Mascara“ from Isadora, 17,99 Euro… weiterlesen

Tested for you: Amazing Eyelashes! “Magnetic Eyeliner & Lash Kit” by Kiss

Unfortunately, all Christmas parties and celebrations are canceled again this year due to Corona, on which I wanted to “jingle” with my new eyelashes. In everyday life, I would never wear fake lashes, but there are simply occasions when it may be something more. And they will certainly come back. The idea of magnetic lashes I actually found quite great, because you can completely do without the glue, which often irritates the eyes. But with the click system, where you have to press a lash from above and below on your own lashes, which then connect magnetically, I just could not cope. It always made me blink so much that they never ended up sitting where they were supposed to. Also, the double layer of lashes looked quite unnatural. I promptly disposed of them after the third hapless attempt. That’s what I call a classic bad purchase! Liner and lashes deliver what they promise In contrast, the Kiss set of magnetic eyeliner and lashes is something special. It works right away and perfectly optimizes your own lashes. The black eyeliner with nourishing biotin is smudge-proof and lasts all day without smudging. You can wear it alone or in combination with the artificial eyelashes, which stick to it without glue. The secret is five double-strength magnets on each lash line. The Fake Lashes – comes in different designs, look like glued on, but are not. Applying the fake lashes is also easy going: first I try out whether the length of the lash band fits my eyes. Not quite. I have to shorten them a tiny bit at the ends. After this trial run, I apply the eyeliner twice close to the edge of the upper eyelid and carefully make sure that the line is continuous from the inner corner of the eye to the outer corner. This is the only way to achieve the maximum adhesive strength for the “Kiss” lashes, which are now on their turn. I carefully pull them off their packaging. While I now look in the mirror with half-closed eyes, I fix each lash band from the inside to the outside on the eyeliner, which has dried well in the meantime. Fits! It’s a really simple concept: eyeliner, lashes, done! „Magnetic Eyeliner & Lash Kit“ from Kiss, ca. 16 Euro… weiterlesen
