Sneak Peek: bareMinerals Flawless Definition Curl & Lengthen Mascara

We all know I’m a mascara junkie, I don’t even want to tell you how many I currently own. Each one does different things, which totally amazes me—because it’s mascara. Seems like if there’s a brush, a wand, and some shiny black stuff…they would all serve essentially the same purpose, right? Wrong! Like this new one from bareMinerals, Flawless Definition Curl & Lengthen Mascara—it promises to do just that. Typically I’m more of a volumizing and lengthening mascara girl, but I really don’t discriminate. So I had no problem giving this new one a whirl! 

Here’s a look at the brush:

Hourglass shape, dual-length bristlesyou’d think we were looking at features on a new car! She’s a beauty, isn’t she? But the real reason we’re here—did it work?

I say, yes! It definitely lengthens and curls as promised on my lashes. There are a few points of difference with this mascara versus similar ones by competitors. For starters, since this is a bareMinerals mascara, it’s infused with minerals, antioxidants, and natural extracts. It’s also paraben-free, loaded with Vitamin E and lash-nurturing amino acids. Our precious lashes are in very good hands here.

One of the things I appreciate most about Flawless Definition Curl & Lengthen, is that my lashes remain touchable and soft—this doesn’t leave my lashes brittle at all. Even after I touched them a little bit to see if there was a lot of stiffness, there was no flaking and the look lasted all day. Keep an eye out for this one if this sounds like your kinda thing…it officially launches in July.

Price & Availability: $18 — July 2011 at Bare Escentuals boutiques,, Sephora,, ULTA, select Nordstrom stores and Macy’s locations.

    Oh, sounds like a winner! Did you notice any smudging after a day’s wear? That’s my pet peeve 😀
