Mary Kay Lash Love Lengthening Mascara.

Mascara is the one cosmetic that must be replaced every two months, so spending up to thirty dollars on a tube does not bode well with my cosmetic ethics 🙂  Even though I have naturally long lashes, I always purchase lengthening formulas. Volumizing mascaras tend to coagulate by the end of the second week; the resulting goop inevitably makes my lashes look like spider legs.  So when certain youtube personalities (watch Melissa’s review here) raved about Mary Kay Lash Love Lengthening Mascara ($15 US/ 8g) and how it gave unbelievable volume (sans clumps and flakes) and length, I knew a purchase was in order.  I do write a blog after all….yes?

The Pros:

Without getting too technical or verbose–this little darling is truly fabulous!!  Let the pictures speak for themselves.


Mary Kay Lash Love Lenghtening Mascara in I♥ black has a dry-thin consistency.  The rubber brush is standard size and the curved shape design holds on to just the right amount of product to be distributed onto the lashes.  The amount/spacing of the bristles allows the brush to comb through each lash and really define and coat the hairs beautifully.


I easily applied two coats of Mary Kay Lash Love Lengthening Mascara and the results were slightly voluminous, long and defined lashes.  I could have pushed the envelop and applied an additional coat, but that would have been a bit too extreme merely for a Costco visit.  Removal was easily achieved with any makeup remover and/or facial wash.


My lashes did not feel stiff or weighed down.  Mary Kay Lash Love Lengthening Mascara must be formulated with a refined wax that dries down quickly, which allows for easy, clump-free layering.  I did not experience any flaking or migration throughout the day.  The cashier at the store wanted to know if I was wearing false lashes, when my response was no, she replied in a surprised manner, “Are you sure?” Yeah, I’m positive (in my most Marisa Tomei voice from My Cousin Vinny).

The Cons:

Mary Kay Lash Love can be purchased only from a MK representative, the company does not accommodate online orders, which is not suitable for many people.  This formula does contains parabens, however most of the mascaras I use are not paraben-free. Unfortunately, the more natural formulas do not work well on me.

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you if you like the results you see in the photos, do not hesitate to jump on the Mary Kay Lash Love Lengthening Mascara band wagon.  This formula gave unbelievable length and some volume, prehaps the regular Lash Love would provide more volume.  I am a very satisfied customer indeed; now I have to roll up my sleeves, contact my Mary Kay representative, put-on my social smile and stock up on this bad boy.  Until next time, be well and stay safe.
