THINK: It’s time to lose your lash curler.
WHAT IT IS: New 24 Hour Supercurler Mascara from Rimmel London is a revolutionary mascara and lash curler in one, giving you dramatic, even curl and volume that lasts all day and all night. No more pulling or tearing at your lashes—with its built-in curling power, the mascara gives lashes a “perm” effect. The patent-pending formula features a revolutionary polymer, a spherical micro-sponge, and a soft gel. When combined, the breakthrough formula curls, volumizes, and pushes lashes up to a phenomenal 90 degrees. Lashes are visibly transformed as soon as you apply, and set to a flawless curl in seconds.
With its curved-eye shape, the special brush fits perfectly into the contours of your eye, giving you flawless application every time. Its cleverly-designed fibers lift and curl lashes from the root to tip, separating each lash for defined, clump-free color. Use the mascara alone, or create an eye-opening look by layering it over your favorite Rimmel mascara.
Let your lashes defy the laws of gravity with breathtaking curve appeal.

I absolutely love using mascara. In fact, it is definitely one beauty product I could never and will never be without. There are so many mascaras on the market today that it makes it so difficult to know which one is the best. I want my lashes to look full, flirty and beautiful without looking clumpy and thick.
One of my very favorite mascaras is Lashem Double Trouble Mascara.
Double Trouble Mascara is unique. It has two sides. One side is to lengthen your lashes to their fullest extent of sexiness, and the other side is for volume, so you can bring your lashes to a whole new dimension of sassiness. You get the best of both worlds in one fancy tube. What a great concept. I love it! My lashes look extremely beautiful with Double Trouble Mascara, and there is absolutely no clumpiness. It looks and feels natural and gives my lashes the ooh-la-la that they need. (That is not my eye in the photo below, but you get the idea.)

Do you have thin, stubby or barely there eyelashes? What about your eyebrows? Are yours overplucked and scarce? RapidLash Eyelash and Eyebrow Enhancing System can restore your lashes and brows. With RapidLash you will see results in as little as 30 days.
I strated using RapidLash most recently because my eyebrows were getting pretty thin from plucking them as a teenager. I was having to use an eyebrow pencil every day to fill in my bald patches. That was no fun at all. I felt like a mannequinn with 'pretend' eyebrows.
I received a sample of RapidLash and began applying it to my natural eyebrow line. I was skeptical, but after only using it for three weeks I have already seen results. My eyebrows are growing in again, as if they were fertilized. It is awesome. The areas of my brows where no hair was are now filled in by eyebrow regrowth. Hurray!
I also applied to to my lower lash line, since they were not as full as my upper lashes. The results are amazing! my lashes are so long!
How Does RapidLash Work? (Taken from their website)
RapidLash® Eyelash and Eyebrow Enhancing Serum is a clinically-proven, paraben-free serum that helps improve the overall appearance and condition of your lashes and brows. This innovative formula features Hexatein™1 Complex, a proprietary mix of six highly effective ingredients: Polypeptides, Biotin, Panthenol, Amino Acids, Soybean Oil and Pumpkin Seed Extract. This unique blend of ingredients works to enhance the appearance of lashes and brows, resulting in healthier, fuller-looking lashes and brows starting in as little as 30 days!
RapidLash is not a prescription, but a cosmetic, over-the-counter product proven to transform each strand at the lash or brow line from thin, brittle or dry to fuller and healthier-looking. By delivering essential proteins, vitamins and other moisturizing and rejuvenating ingredients, it works to replenish the structure of lashes and sparse eyebrows, while adding shine and elasticity. RapidLash is dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested for safe and easy use.
RapidLash Key Ingredients/Benefits:
Potent Polypeptides and Amino Acids Powerful polypeptides Octa/Cooper/Oligo help amplify the quality and volume of lashes and brows. They also provide effective protection against breakage and naturally support stronger, more voluminous lashes. Amino Acids help boost the protein structure.
Vital Proteins and Vitamins Vital proteins and vitamins help replenish and fortify. Biotin, Panthenol and rich minerals join forces to help replenish and rejuvenate lashes and brows with essential proteins and vitamins such as Hydrolyzed Glycosaminoglycans that provide strength, shine and enhance the overall appearance of lashes.
Moisturizingand Rejuvenating Agents Unique moisturizing agents Allantoin, Soybean Oil, Pumpkin Seed Extract and Licorice Extract help add shine and flexibility. They also provide extreme hydration to lashes by locking in moisture while improving elasticity and durability.
Two Quick Steps to Healthy-Looking Lashes and Beautiful Brows:
1. To prepare for the application, start with a clean, dry area. Using the applicator brush, apply RapidLash to the base of the upper eyelashes starting from the inner corner of the eye to the outer corner, as if you were applying liquid eyeliner. RapidLash can also be applied to the lower lash line. For brows, apply directly to the brow line.
2. Use RapidLash nightly on lashes and brows and see results in as little as 30 days. Once desired results are achieved, it is recommended to continue using RapidLash to maintain the appearance and condition of your lashes and brows.
RapidLash is available through spas, physician’ practices’, skincare professionals and at drug and mass merchandisers nationwide for $49.95. Visit RapidLash online at www.RapidLash.com

When it comes to eye makeup selection, what do you consider?
Color?Brand? Packaging? But are you reading the most important part of the package?
What other common products/activities do you need to keep an “eye” out for?
Founder and President of EnvyDerm Cosmetics, Nadia Smith, has provided the top 5 things to avoid that cause harm to your eyes, lashes and brows.
5. Avoid Makeup in Motion
Though it seems ideal for those on the run, avoid makeup application in a car, train or bus. A sudden halt, bump or drop, may leave you with a serious injury. Whether applying mascara or eyeliner, manage to find some time in your morning routine to apply makeup in the home or office. Even a slight scratch in your eye can lead to a more serious problem down the line.
4. Don’t Share Avoid sharing or exchanging your eye products with anyone!
This could easily lead to an infection. When sampling at a cosmetics/retail store apply eye makeup with single-use applicator. If you need to test an eye shadow, test it on the back of your hand instead of your eye.
3. DIY Disaster
There are many DIY kits for lash extensions and lash/brow tinting available for purchase. When it comes to lash extensions chose the product wisely. The glue used may be harmful to your eyes and/or lead to pulling out your lashes and causing irritation when removed. Make sure there is no formaldehyde or cyano acrylate in the glue used. Though it sounds convenient to test products in the comfort of your own home, my advice is to avoid lash and brow dyeing/tinting. Eyelash and brow tinting may cause stinging and watery eyes, or worse— an allergic reaction. Though it is not recommended, if you plan to give it a try, be sure to test the dye on your skin prior to applying it to the eyes or brows. I recommend using a shadow to darken the color of your brows instead.
2. Infected Makeup
To avoid infections, discard and replace your eye makeup regularly. Mascara should be changed every three months. Sharpen your eye pencil before ever application, to avoid both scratching your eye and to keep it clean. If you wear contact lenses, be sure to change your products more frequently. If you have had an eye infection, discard any eye cosmetics used and refresh your supplies.
1. Harmful Chemicals:
Always read the ingredients on the packaging of any products you purchase. Do your research!
Whether purchasing mascara or eye makeup remover, make sure all ingredients used are safe. Phthalate, sulfate, Propylene Glycol and sodium hydroxymethylglycinate are just a few of the harmful ingredients that could be in your cosmetics bag. As mentioned, I would recommend sticking to products with natural ingredients like EnvyDerm Eyelash Growth Serum, a gentle, clinically-tested non-prescription formula that promotes natural eyelash growth www.envyderm.com
