MASCARA WANDS: DO THEY MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

If you’ve always wondered if the type of mascara wand you use is important, this experiment is for you! I coerced my assistant Carissa to model again and to make sure that the only variable was the wand, we used the same formula mascara (L’Oreal Telescopic) with each wand, did exactly two coats of each and completely took it off in between applications. The results may look subtle but to me are maaajor!

  • PLASTIC COMB: You can see it really separated the lashes from each other, gave a dark color payoff and lengthened them.
  • NATURAL BRISTLES: The wand created a soft + light look, which I’m equally a fan of, especially when hanging with your honey and want “pet-able” lashes (revisit our dating makeup post here). And it made them look fuller + more voluminous.
  • PLASTIC BRISTLES: This wand kind of married the two above by creating dark, long + full lashes! Very interesting! The only downside is they are stiff (not soft + pet-able).
