Lashes for Days
By Polina Roytman
I recently received a question on my Facebook page asking if I have a favorite mascara.
“I just want some basic long black lashes for my everyday look that can make my light short lashes be seen behind my glasses and make my eyes pop. Any ideas?”
And do I ever! My go to for the last year or so is the 100% Pure fruit pigmented mascara. It is 100% natural, vegetarian, and colored with black tea and berry pigments. It actually smells like fresh berries, which puts me in the best mood and wakes me up every morning as soon as I apply it. It lengthens, separates, and thickens lashes, all while being water and smudge resistant [note: it is not waterproof] and gentle on sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
It comes in four colors: Black Tea, Blueberry, Dark Chocolate, and Blackberry, my personal favorite. I’ve already managed to get several friends and my mother hooked on it. Until recently I only used their smaller travel size which retailed for $9. I loved the price tag and the fact that it was conveniently small enough to not take up too much space in my makeup bag. The small size was discontinued about a month ago leaving only the full size available, which retails for $18 to $21 depending on where you buy it. I’ve been using the full size for the past month and must admit I love it even more! The brush is bigger and does a lot more for my lashes than the smaller version, so it’s worth the price.
Amazon tends to carry it for the $18 price tag.
