Anyone who knows me that I rarely wear a lot of makeup. As a matter of fact, I have my daily routine down to about five products total and that’s if I’m going to be seen somewhere with flash photography (as a matter of fact, the number of people + possible cameras = more products.) But there’s one beauty product I never leave the house without wearing and that is mascara. As a matter of fact, I consider myself a mascara SNOB.
Which is why I have to tell you to one of my favorite mascaras of ALL TIME, people: Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Mascara. This mascara is used backstage at almost every red carpet event and makeup artists will swear by it because it does what is virtually unheard of in the world of mascara: it builds insane volume and length simultaneously without clumping or flaking. I’m not kidding: one swipe of the top lashes will give you the look of falsies instantly. Two to three swipes and you can seriously pass for a Vegas showgirl. It is simply beauty perfection in a tube with possibly the best brush known to man.
Oh, and another important factor for yours truly (and possibly you): the non-flaking thing. A genius move for those of us who wear contact lenses. I’m not kidding. It is – quite honestly – the only mascara I’ve ever used that has yet to ruin a pair of disposable contact lenses.
This mascara is perfect for every day with one coat and the ultimate go-to for special occasion lashes. The name really says it all. Want Bond Girl lashes on a regular basis? This is the 007 of mascaras, with a license to give you Eyes To Kill.
Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Mascara ($30), available via their website and fine retailers like Bloomingdale’s nationwide
FTC disclosure: sample received for review eons ago but I’ve purchased this mascara three times since 🙂 I love it THAT MUCH
