Hey!

I've been using maybelline volume express waterproof masacara for literally 4+ years. I'm pretty sure they recently discontinued it because i can't find it anywhere! this makes me VERY sad. I have very straight eyelashes, but when i use a curler and the maybelline mascara they curl perfectly and with the mascara they stay curled and where I want them.

 

SO my question is: Is there a mascara that will keep my lashes curled and not weigh them down again?? I'm running low on my last tube of maybelline volume express so im pretty desperate haha

Checkout Diorshow Iconic. It holds curl really well and keeps the lashes soft and flexible.

Idk if you've heard but wearing waterproof mascara everyday is really bad for your lashes :( 

But anyway, to answer your question, I just bought Dior's new lash primer and I love love love it! Curls my lashes like no other so whatever mascara I wear on top does not even matter, and I don't have to use an eyelash curler either :D

My lashes are hard to curl too.

 

Well, if I use a lash curler, they look fine, but it'll go away in 10 minutes, of course.  But the second I touch mascara to my lashes, they flatten right up again (Kind of like if you spend half an hour curling your hair and then jump into the shower. presto, no more curl!)

 

First of all, I've found pretty much only waterproof mascaras are able to hold any curl.  If they're not waterproof, the lashes will straighten up as soon as they touch the liquid in the mascara.  I also got a heated lash curler to push up the lashes a bit more once the mascara has been applied/dried.  (You use your normal curler, then the waterproof mascara, then let it dry, then use the heat to push up the edges a bit more)

 

I use CoverGirl Lash Perfect Waterproof. (Used to use MaxFactor, but MaxFactor was discontinued, and they're from the same company) It's a purple bottle.

I only wear waterproof mascara, and I have had no issues either. I found it was the only thing to hold my curl. Now that i am using Rapidlash curling my lashes and holding a curl are no longer an issue for me.

Covergirl LashBlast waterproof (original one in the orange tube). It's the ONLY mascara that keeps my lashes curled, all day long. The only one EVER!!

HANDS DOWN the best mascara on the market is L'Oreal Voluminous!! 

 

I have been using it since high school. I have blonde-ish lashes and they don't curl much but when i use this it makes them look stunning!!!

 

Now they have improved the product and made extension of the original. Double Extend will be your best friend from here on out! biggrin.gif

I LOOOVE L'Oreal Double Extend. I have the same problem where my hard to curl asian lashes will straighten and flatten out once I put mascara on, but when I curl my lashes, I curl it in 4 different places, from the tips to the roots, to the point where they're literally standing straight up, then I use my Double Extend and they flatten a little bit so that it's almost the perfect curl, if I have extra time, I wait for it to dry and then curl it some more. This mascara is amazing, so lengthening and volumizing. I used to have problems with my mascara's smudging, but this won't budge until I wash it off with warm water.

i use a heated eyelash curler. i think that's what its called in english.

they're not expensive. and you just push on and let it heat up, and after you've put on mascara you use the heating curler to curl your lashes :)

the white base is the BEST THING ever invented! lol

I feel it helps make the lashes more defined ... not clumpy or raccoon-eyes. and  yes, it NEVER smudges!

I don't know. I've tried the tube mascara things which comes with the white primer.  The white primer did exactly what the other mascaras do for me, which is straighten out my lashes as soon as they get wet from it.

 

They might make them look longer or defined, but the lashes point straight down so from a distance it just ends up looking like more eyeliner with no lashes on me.

 

I think it's hard to explain to people with easy to curl lashes.  You put your lashes in a curler, pump pump pump, then mascara, and presto perfect lashes.  For people like us, we put our lashes in the curler, pump pump pump....pump pumpumpumpumpumpumppump...hold...pumpumpump....  Then mascara, and tear up as we see the wand literally kill any attempt of a curl that was just there a second ago.  It just completely undoes everything, and possibly even makes it worse than before you started since not only is the curl not there, now your lashes also have to deal with the weight of product on them, so they're pointed even further down.

Annelle, I totally understand your frustration, my asian eyelashes are the same. I curl my eyelashes in 4 to 5 different places and make it so they're literally standing up on my eyelids, but the rest of it still has some curl to it, so it almost curls back onto my eyelids. Then after the primer and mascara, they flatten out and fall a bit but usually, they're curled enough I don't bother. If I have time, I wait for it to dry and curl it some more. For this reason I've been dying to get my hands on the Shu Uemura eyelash curler because I've heard such good reviews for hard to curl lashes.

I completely understand what you are saying Annelle. I don't have eyelashes that curl either and they are blonde and short. But it seems that ever since I have been using L'Oreal mascara all my problems are gone! lol 

 

I tried using eyelash curlers and it just made my lashes look "L" shaped. Which isn't pretty to me at all. Then I would always look at eye make-up on celebrities and any design that caught my eyes. If you notice they don't necessarily have "curled" lashes, more of a "sweep" look. (if that makes sense) 

 

I admit, mascara isn't the easiest make up application. But, when you put the primer on make sure there aren't any clumps on the brush. The cool thing about the primer is that you can go over it a couple of times until they look smooth.

 

Here are a few tips on how i apply mascara.

First, start at the base ~ as close as you can to your eye lid ~ rotate or swirl the brush as you slide it up your lashes. I usually start in the middle then do the left and right side. 

       I only put the brush back into the tube after each time i do it (and of course DO NOT PUSH AND PULL THE BRUSH IN AND OUT OF THE TUBE! that makes the mascara inside clumpy and dries it out faster.I just twirl it around inside the tube.)

       Then for the second coat use the tip of the brush and glide it from the middle of the lash up. that is what makes it look extended. I let that dry and repeat with the black. 

    Using the tip makes it alot easier to get the outer corner to flare out and make the lash curl at the top. 

So in my opinion... curlers SUCK! haha!

 

I hope that might help you. The funny thing is I am sitting here in front of a mirror doing it while I am typing this lol

I rec MUFE's Aqua smoky lash. I don't wear it every day because it's waterproof and I hate taking it off, but when I do wear it, my lashes look blackest black, and it holds them curled all day. I think it's the most amazing mascara I've ever tried, and I wish it wasn't that hard to remove. :(

Hi Annabelle,

 

Thanks for your post. I have exactly the same problem as you. I did a search for your mascara, though, and what seemed to come up in a lilac bottle was CoverGirl Lash Exact Waterproof. Is that what you meant? It doesn't seem to retail in the UK but if I know I have the right one, I will buy this online. All the waterproof mascaras I used that had a similar effect have been discontinued!

I have found that rapid lash tends to work with those real difficult non negotiable eye lashes
