Q: When applying 2 different mascaras one for lengthening and one for thickening, which should be applied first? Also is
there a great mascara that does both and curl too or am I asking for too much? Thanks
A: If you already have two separate products that you favor to do the separate jobs of lengthening and thickening the lashes, you
should always apply the lengthening mascara BEFORE the thickening product. The reason for this is that a thickening formula could
more readily become clumped when layered over by the addition of the lengthening formula.
However, there are a number of new products on the market that are specialized to given
women the looks they are after. When it comes to mascara, the current “new face” on the market is the “Exact” line from Cover Girl.
This product line comes in three formulas: Lash Exact, Volume Exact, and Curl Exact and user reviews have been overwhelmingly positive.
The Volume Exact is (as would be reasonable to assume) designed to thicken the eyelashes,
while the Lash Exact claims to thicken and elongate the lashes in one product. The Curl Exact mascara is meant to provide longer,
thicker lashes with a brush designed to curl the lashes as well.
