Happy Thursday everyone!!
I have really been enjoying the IT Cosmetics line and when I heard MakeupbyTiffanyD talk about this and demo it on YouTube, I knew I had to get it. It made her lashes look incredible! Lashes are one of the most important parts of makeup in my opinion. You can seriously throw on a couple coats of mascara and a lipstick/gloss and be out the door. Keep reading to see my review and pictures on the IT Cosmetics Tightline Mascara.
What it is.
“It’s a multi-tasking beauty must-have that uses an ultra-skinny wand, allowing you to start coating your lashes at their actual root, so you coat black along your entire lash length (unlike most mascara brushes that are too large to get to the root, leaving the first 1/3 of your lash roots bare!). This gives you ultimate length and volume. But the best part is, if you have sparse or missing lashes, the Tightline brush lays down black pigment along your entire lash line, filling in spare spots, giving you a full beautiful lash line and the look of an eyeliner!”
The ingredients in this mascara are filled with so many great things that it is also a lash enhancing serum as well. So you aren’t only making your lashes look bomb the day of but helping them grow overtime too! That’s a win win my friends! :)
It really has the tiniest little wand. It is almost like if a mascara and a liquid eyeliner had a baby this is what it would be. Like the description above, the brush is so small that it gets between lashes creating a black line in your tightline. (A tightline is the area of skin under your top lid below your lash line.)
This can be used as just a primer before your favorite mascara or alone. It is really great at providing volume and length but for me personally it isn’t as black as I would want it, so I use my favorite mascara on top. It works perfectly with other mascaras without making it dry, brittle, or clumpy. Also if you have sensitive eyes, no worries it won’t hurt them. My eyes seriously water if there is a strong breeze in another state, and this doesn’t bother me at all.
I have kind of hooded eyelids so it is kind of hard to tell in a picture what this actually does. But you just have to take my word for it, It really makes a line just like I’m wearing eyeliner on the top… but I’m not. Plus look at that length!
Because it creates the tightline effect it makes lashes look so much more full than before. Also great for the bottom lashes too! (It’s hard to tell a big difference because I have hooded eyes)
This tightline mascara is $24 at Ulta. I think that is a decent price. Could be a little cheaper because I think it does dry out a little faster than a typical mascara. I also don’t use this every time I do my makeup because it’s not your typical wand so you have to actually be a little more careful than normal.
Would I repurchase this again? Yes, but probably not as soon as I run out. I really like the way it turns out when I use it, but sometimes it can be a hassle to use. I think everyone should try it at least once because it can do wonders on even your smallest lashes!
(The fingernails I’m rocking in this post were sent to me in my Influenster Box, french isn’t really my style, but hey it was free!)
What is the one item of makeup you have to put on to feel comfortable?
