NARS has two mascaras, volumizing and lengthening, available only in black. They aren’t advertised as waterproof mascaras but they basically are. I gave the lengthening mascara a try and overall I’m pretty impressed. It doesn’t give extreme volume but it holds a curl very well and I don’t get that heavy, crusty, brittle feeling I get with most waterproof mascaras. Apparently the volumizing mascara also holds a curl well so I may try that one as well later on.
The applicator is plastic and also bends but isn’t as flexible and rubbery like the Maybelline define-a-lash.

So I know you’re wondering, which do I like more? The Shiseido lasting lift or the NARS lengthening? Well, I like the formula of the NARS one a lot better but I prefer the small brush of the Shiseido since it’s easier to apply on my small eyes. Overall though, I think I’m going to stick with NARS mascaras for now because they feel less damaging on my lashes.
