Primers and a Virtual Trip To Sephora

There are so many products on the market today to make your eyelashes grow long. And even longer.  And there are even more that make you brows either fill in or grow thicker as well.  I have tried several of them over the last 20 years and I will tell you that a few of them have worked so well that they carry the ‘wow’ factor to a whole new level.  But!  In saying that, I must also add they carry a pretty hefty price point.  Then the disappointment comes when you no longer want pay the price and what you have achieved disappears at the stroke of midnight.  Much like with Cinderella – the ‘pumpkin’ ie. your long lush lashes and sexy eyebrows are no more.

So, I smile as I give you a little tidbit I learned at the Dior counter a few weeks ago from the Beauty Product Specialist.   Remember the Diorshow Maximizer 3D Triple Volume Plumping Lash Primer we discussed in a previous post?

This mascara base from Dior gives your lashes up to three times the volume by combining the immediate enhancing effect of a mascara with the benefits of daily lash care. Your lashes are left intensely curled, thickened and lengthened, ideally primed to heighten the effect of mascara and optimize hold. Day after day, its enhancing formula helps lashes look their best by combining hyaluronic acid with plumping properties and the brand’s unrivalled Lash Maximizer™ ingredient. It’s white so you use it first and follow with your favorite mascara which for me is DiorShow.

Plus, I learned that not only is it great as a primer it’s can also be applied as an intensive deep conditioner for lashes and brows at night. These are two uses for optimal results.  I apply each day before mascara for immediate results, and on its own each night as a deep conditioner to pamper my lashes and my brows.  You will be surprised at the results.  And even better, the price points compared to the other products I used are much lower.

And! Another tidbit I received was from my amazing hair stylist and color specialist, Jimmy Moreau.  If you have not added the Sephora app to your phone, do it!  Inside the app Sephora has created is an exact replica of its chain cosmetic store. There are dozens of rows of every imaginable kind of makeup, surrounded by walls of perfume, skin cream, and beauty gadgets. Everything is there – on your phone!

This is Sephora’s new Innovation Lab. Right when you walk in the front of the virtual store, there’s an array of augmented reality videos that play on the Sephora app on your smartphone. Continue through the store and these reality background videos will pop up strategically throughout.

Be sure and visit virtually reality makeovers.  With the addition of your camera you can view yourself in a variety of makeup looks.  See one you love?  Click and your cart fills with the products to achieve it.  And!  If you don’t want everything you can sort and delete those in your cart and then purchase.  There are even tutorials available to show you how to achieve the look as well.  I spent a rainy afternoon playing with everything this app offers and had such fun.  Trust me, you will too.

Just have fun. Smile.  And keep putting on lipstick. – Facia
