I am used to inky mascaras with fat brushes and lots of bristles. I don’t see many tightline mascaras on the market, so I guess other brands haven’t necessarily caught on to them yet. The It Tightline Mascara acts as a primer while creating the illusion of a black liner. It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara ($24) is on QVC and ItCosmetics.

On the Tighline end, is the mascara, and the long part is the super skinny brush.

The brush is meant to be super skinny to grab all the lashes on the top and bottom. Most mascaras don’t even grab all the bottom lashes.

 I swipped this one time on my hand. The pigment is not an inky black.

First impression– I have used this twice. The mascara has to be generously worked into the lashes to get a strong definition. During application, I worked it in my lashes two times on the top and bottom. I did notice strong length, definition, and a little bit of the black liner illusion. After the mascara dried, I touched my lashes. My lashes were soft and not brittle. I noticed on my finger there weren’t pieces of black from touching it.

This mascara is completely different from what I have tried. QVC randomly has specials on this mascara.

Two mascara comparisons- Lights, Camera, Lashes (purple tube) and Lights, Camera, Flashes (gold tube) are both by Tarte.

Brushes are very different in size and texture. I personally found the Lashes brush to be softer, and the Flashes brush to be a bit more firm and fatter. Both brushes are very different in size, firmness, and application.

 Pigment of the Flashes is not as strong as the Lashes

The one I personally pick is The Lights, Camera, Lashes for better pigment, brush, and results.

mascaras
I have very strange lashes and a hard time finding mascara that makes it look like my lashes have more depth. My lashes are straight and light with a slight curl at the tip.  Currently, my new favorite mascaras are Benefit Roller Lash, Eyeko, Urban Decay Perversion, and Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara.

 

My newest mascara try is the Benefit Roller Lash. Benefit mascaras are great for my lashes. Unlike the They’re Real and BADgal mascaras, the Roller Lash did not make my lashes hard or clump. BADgal and They’re Real did work to a certain point except I like the Roller Lash better. The Roller Lash is very soft and natural. I did see improvement with my lashes. The Roller Lash brush worked for my bottom lashes, too.

I used two of UD’s older mascaras before they came out with the Perversion line. Their other mascaras did not work, so I had no intention of trying the Perversion mascara. When I bought the Naked on the Run Palette it came with a deluxe size, and after a few uses, the Perversion mascara works better than the others ones. I had to use a little more effort, the mascara is not an intense black, and it offered some curl and length.

Too Faced Better Than Sex was with the Blogger Darlings kit. I’m still a bit doubtful if I want it full size. I wore this as my “everyday” mascara and it did show nice curl and pigment.

Eyeko is new to me. I found this line by accident from the HSN website on sale. I haven’t had a chance to do a full review or comparison with the Roller Lash because they both have the curved brush except Eyeko is fatter. I never heard of this line before, I decided to try it to hold me over.

I often repurchase mascaras if they work wonders for my lashes.

My new mascara is the  Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara 0.14 oz.

The Roller Lash is the neatest mascara with packaging and the curl brush.

The brush is narrow and nicely curved which also worked for the bottom of my lashes. I did notice a difference in color, length, and curl. I needed about 4 coats of mascara and had to really work it in order to see results and even after 4 coats it did not clump, get dry, hard, or flake.

Benefit scores again with another great mascara.
