Get thick and long lashes by Summer 16 (Pst! Thank By Terry’s Terrybly Growth Booster Mascara & 1000hour Xpress Lash-Gro EyeLiner!)

There are a few things us girls would rather longer than shorter, like:

a) hair
b) nails
c) legs
d) weekends
and of course e) lashes!

As much as we can wish and pine, we really only have control over the length of our hair, nails and lashes because they all come down to allowing time for growth. It doesn’t matter how much you complain to your boss – you’re not getting that permanent 3-day weekend though!

IMG_0529If it’s long lashes that you so desire, I’ve found two amazing lash-boosting products that promise to thicken and lengthen the hair follicle during it’s wear so that after a few months you will have a gorgeous set of natural fanned-out lashes.

I’ve done the maths for your girls – if you wear these products throughout winter, come summer you will be able to walk around fluttering the most gorgeous lashes without even having to consider fakies or pricey eyelash extensions.

The two products I have fallen in love with are By Terry’s Terrybly Growth Booster Mascara, $65, and the new 1000 Hour Xpress Lash-Gro Eyeliner, $29.99.

449211_in_xlI purchased By Terry’s Terrybly Mascara after candidly asking a sales assistant at Mecca Cosmetica what mascara she used. Her lashes were so long. I mean, I literally was scanning the root of her lashes looking for visable glue to see if they were fakies – but they weren’t. She told me that she had started using this growth booting mascara after loosing so many of her natural lashes after a long bout of extensions. After hearing this spiel I was sold.

This luxury mascara (the packaging is on point in a pale gold canister with a medium sized tapered bristled brush, perfect for getting it at each lash) applies quiet thinly at first, which I think is the true secret to clump free lashes.

Any brush that is lacquered in too much gooey pigment will coat lashes too fast making them clumpy and wet. This brush allows you to build to your desired thickness and length – and believe me this mascara still offers amazing Bambi-worthy lashes even though it’s sold based off its lash growth performance.

The ingredient that allows your lashes to grow fast is the inclusion of ‘Lumicoat Care Technology’ a By Terry patented ingredient that helps to grow long, strong and silky hair follicles from the base to tip.

You can pick this mascara up from Mecca Cosmetica or Mecca Maxima for $65.

The second lash-growing ‘wow product’ that landed in my hands is from the innovators at 1000 Hour. Their new Xpress Lash-Gro Eyeliner will create fuller, thicker and longer lashes in 60 days – that’s just two months!

What I love about this product is that it applies just like any other regular liquid eyeliner. I wear a winged flick most days, so this lash-growing technology is ideal for me as I’ll be reaping it’s benefits daily.

This ingredient has undergone scientific tests and proved to lengthen and thicken lashes in just 8 weeks. Ah-mazing.

For this eyeliner to work, simply draw a neat thin line, as you would normally with liquid eyeliner, to the base of your lashes. This liquid eyeliner comes with a small bristled brush so make sure you have a steady hand or a makeup artistry brush of your choice to draw a neat line.

I found that this eyeliner also lasted all day and didn’t smudge or move on my eyelid – that’s pretty impressive.

You can currently buy this newly released eyeliner on the 1000 Hour website for $29.99.

Beauty girls! Would you use either of these products? Have you found that constant mascara, fake eyelashes or even eyelashes extensions have had a toll on your natural set?
