LTHP Quickies! Milani Grandissimo Lashes Mascara

Friday- Fryday!! 

  Do any of you guys  any exciting plans for the weekend? I don't just yet, but I'm still excited for the weekend! I've been feeling better this past week and I really wanna take advantage and go have some FUN!! 
  Onto the reason you're here ;)!! OMG MASCARA!!! SO Milani released a brand new mascara this year. This is the very first Milani mascara I've ever tried, and let me tell you, I am BLOWN away! I'm HUGE into mascara. I just love when you add mascara to an eye look and it brings it to life. I love when I'm having a lazy day and wearing a good mascara makes me feel that much more confident. Milani hit it out of the park with their new Grandissimo Lashes extreme volume mascara
 You know how they say a picture is worth 1,000 words? Even my husband could not believe the difference! Mascara is a wonderful thing, isn't it?
 I think it's pretty clear which is before and which is after right? On the left are my totally nakey lashes and the right is Two coats of mascara. I use the "wiggle" method to apply my mascara. They practically looked fake! On a random note, for these mascara swatches(?? lol) I prepped my lid with the new Milani Eyeshadow primer (which I will be covering soon) and Milani pressed powder shadows in French Vanilla, Pearl and Gold Dust.
 The brush on this mascara is really big. I honestly had never seen, or used a mascara with such a big applicator. The second I started applying the mascara it was like a revelation! OH MY WOW, it made application effortless, and look.. I didn't get ANY mascara on my lids!!! It also left no clumps at all! No matter how much I kept going over the lashes they always stayed fluffy and separated, not clumpy at all! I am so impressed with the volume and length this mascara added to my lashes.
 The final test for this mascara for me will be an actual wear test. My eyes can be so sensitive to mascaras, it's a little frustrating. Especially when I find a product I really LOVE, like this mascara. So I'm hoping it agrees with me when extended wear happens.

 Milani is making a beauty blogger out of me yet ;D! I've been SO impressed with every single product they ave released this year and the Grandissimo Mascara ($5.49 online) is no exception. I have a few more new releases from Milani to share with you guys that I am SOO excited about!!

 Are you a "lash gal"? What is your Holy Grail mascara? I think this might just be mine (I really hope it agrees with my eyeballs)!!

  1. Holy crap, wow!! And the low price is amazing! Love it

  2. Whoa, color me impressed!! I AM a lash girl!! I feel like it's the one beauty product NO girl should overlook!!

    My go-too is Dior Diorshow Waterproof in Black. That may be changing, lol

  3. omigosh you have issues with mascara allergies too!? Please tell me what has been your longstanding favorite? I have been forced into Physcians Formula Organic wear, which with regard to my allergies I love, but other than that... totally not in love.

    I want something better but I don't know what it is exactly that causes my allergies and don't really have the kind of money to spend on mascara after mascara just for them all to make me itchy!

  4. Woweee, I have to get me some of that! I LOVE huge lashes, and mine need all the help they can get!

    My go-to is Mac Factor False Lash Effect. It doesn't give as much length as a Maybelline one I sometimes use, but it doesn't clump at all and looks pretty natural too.

  5. Fingers crossed for you, it makes your lashes look perfect!

  6. Wow. I'm turning into such a Milani fan. Your lashes look amazing. My go to is Falsies by Maybelline. But I'm having issues with it drying out sooner than other mascaras. But it is my go-to!! I'm thinking I will have to try Milani....

  7. They look fab!! My lashes love to lose their curl so I often have bad luck with mascaras pulling out the curl, but I love CoverGirl Lashblast Waterproof, and Essence Get Big! Lashes Waterproof. I also recently bought Essence's Lash Powder and it works sooooo well, totally gives me a false eyelashes look!

  8. i totally just picked this up today since i saw you had liked it on facebook. i needed a new mascara so i thought i would give it a go. hopefully i like it as much as you do.

  9. I am definitely a lash gal. I feel the need to try every mascara. I have over twenty different kinds (unopened; I try one at a time)in my drawer. My favorites so far are Maybelline Falsies and Benefit Bad Gal Lash. Lash'em has a great one if you like a natural look, but I like dramatic lashes. I discovered that I can't wear the ones with added fibers. Now I need to try Milani!

  10. I've been using N.Y.C. Showtime Volumizing mascara which has been my HG for a few months. But this one looks amazing! I'm definitely going to run out, find this mascara and give it a go.

  11. I'm really liking the look of the brush. I'm not a silicone wand/brush convert as my favorite mascara HAD this spiral bristle brush but changed it.
    Right now I have 2 mascara's going, Physicians Formula Organic Wear Jumbo Lash Mascara and Revlon Photoready 3D Volume Mascara. They both have silicone bushes BUT I like them ok.
