ThickerLongerBetter Part I

Many of us are constantly seeking the perfect mascara: one that thickens or lengthen lashes (or maybe both!) and doesn't smear or clump.

Many people like Cover Girl's Lash Blast. While Lash Blast doesn't smear or clump, I was disappointed, as it didn't deliver on building significant thicker lashes. Rimmel's new Glam'EYES does deliver on building thicker and longer lashes and doesn't smear. However, you might want to run a lash comb or clean mascara wand afterwards to define and separate the lashes.

Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express mascara

beauty girl musings had great things to say about Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express mascara. I have yet to try this mascara. If Lash Blast's orange packaging was eye-catching, then Colossal Volum' Express's packaging is eye-popping, in a yellow that fairly screams. Monique said that you'd expect to pay about $7 for Colossal Volum' Express. Where I live (Northern Virginia, near DC), if you have a CVS customer card, you can get Colossal Volum' Express on sale for $4.99 through Saturday, July 5; even better, you'll get "bonus bucks" that will give you $2 discount on a future CVS purchase. Enter your zip code to locate your nearest CVS store at and browse the Weekly Store Ad to see if this offer applies to your store.

Since I mentioned the CVS sale, I should also mention another special applying to my location is "bonus bucks" for $5 discount on a future CVS purchase with purchase of LaRoche-Posay's Anthelios SX SPF 15 sunscreen. Anthelios SX contains Mexoryl SX, which is the 1st sun filter in a sunscreen approved by the FDA in 18 years. Mexoryl SX fills the gap in sunscreens for short UVA ranges.

PS I took advantage of the CVS sale to purchase Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express mascara. This has the edge over Rimmel's new Glam'EYES mascara. Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express is a buy.

PS Just got notice from Anthelios' PR that Anthelios 40 with SPF 40 will be available soon.

I'm so sad you didn't like CG's Lash Blast! I love it. It's the best mascara I've ever tried, and it gives me the thick lashes I desire. I hope you like the Maybelline. It certainly is fun packaging!
