Next week, our friends from Red Apple Lipstick launch THE LASH PROJECT: a gluten-free lash conditioning mascara. Basically the product I’ve been waiting for my whole mascara wearing life!
My lash envy has gone on for years — I have girlfriends whose eye lashes look long and full BEFORE they even put on their mascara.
Here are my sad little lashes without mascara.
I have spent years asking which mascara they are using, running out to buy it at Target, Sephora, or a department store only to end up with clumpy lashes that leave me with raccoon eyes by afternoon. I toss them into the “rejects” drawer in hopes of trying them again someday to pull off the look I saw on a friend. (never happens) I have spent a ridiculous amount of money on mascaras that don’t work for me. I pull out lashes trying to get the gunky mascaras off — they make my eyes itchy, watery, yet I keep buying new ones in hopes of finding the one that works.
For my wedding I let someone talk me into a tube of mascara that was over $30. Big mistake. Spidery lashes. Smudging. Another reject. (into the drawer)
See the pattern here?
The Lash Project mascara is unlike any other mascara I have tried. Sometimes when you hear claims like that, they sound fake or overused, but I honestly feel that way about this product. (and you guys know I’m 100% honest about products I try, if I don’t like them, believe me, you’ll know!)
Full disclosure: I was gifted a tube of The Lash Project mascara to try out, share with all of you, and even give away a gift set that also includes a Red Apple Lipstick color. Jay and Andrea are super generous in that way and I have never seen anyone stand behind their product (or get as excited about it) like they do. Knowing how much I have loved all of their other products, I will tell you I still had doubts about this one at first.
It’s $42, my friends. And for some, that may seem like a deal breaker at first thought.
But my lashes want you to know….it is worth every single penny and I will be continuing to use it for the rest of my mascara wearing life!
It’s that good.
Here are just some of the highlights…
The Lash Project 2-in-1 (conditions and brings beautiful color) formula is: Gluten Free, Paraben Free, Corn Free, Soy Free, Vegan (synthetic beeswax, not the stuff from real bees), Cruelty Free, Dairy Free, Plasticizer Free, GMO free, Glycol Free, Nut Free, & SLS free
They have solved:
• Clumping (my biggest mascara pet peeve)
• Spidering (gross)
• Smudging (hello humid Wisconsin problems!)
• Eye Irritations: itchy, scratchy watery eyes (then I rub them and it gets worse!)
• Puffy and red eyelids (ouch!)
• Short, stubby lashes (totally me, notice the first photo)
• Lashes that grow in weird directions
• Lashes that fall out (all.the.time)
• Mascara that’s hard to remove (now you can just use coconut oil or soap and water)
And if you try it out and aren’t as impressed as I have been? They will give you up to SIX months to get your money back or exchange it — that never happens with cosmetics!
One coat would give me the look I would wear to work each day. And if we want to go with a few coats, we’re ready for a night out!
I have been using it for about a week now and my lashes are stronger already! This shot is from this morning, no mascara.
But don’t just take my word for it, try it out for yourself!
