Short & Straight
The staffer: Analyst Maryanne Nguyen
Her lash gripe: Stick straight and impossible to curl
The results: For lashes like Maryannes, its all about the hooks on the brush that grab the shortest and straightest hairs, separating, lifting, and curling in one swipe. "The brush has a ton of bristles so you can actually feel it grabbing your eyelashes, she says. The results make all eye shapes, even small ones, look wide awake.
Long & Twisted
The staffer: Brand Campaign Strategist Alex Azzara
Her lash gripe: Super long and difficult to separate
The results: If youve got length but not definition like Alex, brush the wand from root to tip to give your eyelashes major curves without clumping. I hate when mascara gets stuck between lashes, but with this brush you can actually feel it hook and separate, she says.
Light & Flat
The staffer: Brand Campaign Strategist Shana Honig
Her lash gripe: Hard to see and tough to lift
The results: For blonde or light colored lashes like Shanas, the ink black satin finish gives them a natural, yet noticeably darker shade. The wand will catch and help lift them all day long. Usually I re-curl my eyelashes throughout the day, she says. But this mascara was really easy to apply, and held the curl.
