Beauty X 3: A Really Good Mascara

I've always been a bit of a polyamorist when it comes to mascara. I wear no fewer than two at a time (yes, simultaneously) — this thickening one with this defining one, this lengthening one with this curling one, this super wet one with this dry one. It's the only way I can get the kind of brow-scraping, falsely thick, ridiculously plentiful lashes I consider a prerequisite for leaving the house.

And that's not the full extent of my dalliances. I also have mascaras for work, mascaras for going out, mascaras for going swimming, and mascaras for when it's merely humid. Suffice it to say that I've never been a one-mascara kind of woman — until I tried the , that is.

It seems convenient, I know — girl falls in love with mascara at first sight and just happens to have to write a review about it? But it's true. It's the only mascara I wear now (and my fellow Allure editors are in agreement, so much so that we decided to give it a 2018 .

I've quit layering because I don't need to. It lifts my lashes so they nearly reach my brows and stay that curled all day (they replaced the powder normally in mascara formulas with one that's practically weightless and inspired by aeroparticles—a material that’s been used in space shuttles). It's wet enough that I don't have to apply several coats to get the thickness I want and it goes on so smoothly that it's impossible to make it look clumpy.

Perhaps the wand has something to do with this love affair: It's flexible, with short, tiny bristles that get mascara all the way to the base of my lashes (you can get a tightlined effect, if you want) and taper to become longer at the outer corners, where my lashes are longer, too.

It's also refreshingly un-smeary. Once it dries, you're good to go all day. Like last Friday, when I got up and got ready at 6:00 a.m., and didn't make it home from karaoke until 3:30 a.m. In short, it is A Very Good Mascara and the only one I reach for anymore. For going to work, for going out, for just about anything. Next up? Introducing it to my mother.
