Mascara has always been my thing. I remember the very first time I used it—Maybelline Great Lash, in my mom’s car on the way to Thanksgiving dinner. I got tons of compliments from my aunt and was immediately hooked. Flash forward 20 years, and I still feel the same way about mascara.
But this is such a world where I no longer wear makeup daily and I'm not the least bit tempted by eyelash extensions (oh, the horror stories). Not to mention that social distancing guidelines make seeing a lash extension expert near impossible and, let's be real, who am I really trying to impress aside from my new roommates (ahem, parents) and my dog? But that also doesn't mean I don't want long, fluffy lashes for my own enjoyment. So what’s a girl to do? Run for the nearest lash serum and never look back.
Meet, Grande Cosmetics GrandeLASH-MD Lash Enhancing Serum. This lash serum was one of the first products I tried when I became a beauty editor three years ago, and it's just so good, I've been using it religiously ever since. I know what you're thinking and no, my lashes didn't fall out, my irises didn't change color and my eyelids don't look darker than the rest of my skin—all three side effects of some other lash serums out there. GrandeLASH-MD uses a blend of vitamins, antioxidants and amino acids to nourish lashes and accelerate their natural growth cycle. True, I've always been decently blessed in the eyelash department, and though they were full, they were never super long and fluttery like I wanted them to be. After just one month of using this product, my ordinary lashes were suddenly so long that they nearly touched my eyebrow when my eyes were wide open. I’m not kidding, the results are that impressive. So impressive, that I have gotten stopped mid-conversation and asked if they’re natural more times than I can count.
I'm always changing up my beauty routine to try new products, but the one thing that has remained consistent for three whole years is my love for GrandeLASH-MD. I just apply the clear liquid to my lash line (the same way you would with liquid eyeliner) before bed each night and reap the benefits of having super long lashes at all times. It is extremely sad when an inch-long eyelash falls out (as they do from time to time), but I know another one will be right behind it. Thank God.
