Get the look of salon lash extensions with the new Double Extend Beauty Tubes Technology Mascara! This new lash extension effect mascara visibly lengthens your lashes up to an astonishing 80%. Step 1: Ultra-nourishing base coat infused with Ceramide R and D-Panthenol protects and strengthens lashes creating the perfect base for tube application. Step 2: Ultra-lengthening tube top coat sets to form lash-extending beauty tubes that visible lengthen lashes to amazing new heights. Beauty tubes will not run, clump, flake or smudge and will stay on all-day. Step 3: Beauty tubes remove easily with just warm water - no makeup remover or rubbing required!


This mascara is pretty good but it's not my favorite.  After you put on the base coat and then the mascara, it creates tubes around your lashes and plumps them up.  I found that if you don't get it right the first time, there is no working with it.  It will start clumping together and looks like spider lashes.  When it goes on perfectly, it does lengthen your lashes but not as much as some of my other mascaras.  I would say my favorite thing about this is that it does not flake off, smudge, or wear off.  It only comes off with warm water and the tubes just slide off on your fingers.  It's kind of fun to remove it.  I think this looks pretty on and does give some length, but I probably would not buy this again because I prefer a more buildable mascara.

A crease-proof, waterproof shadow pencil.  Big and blendable, this 24/7 shadow pencil keeps going as long as you do.  Our next generation of famous 24/7 pencils can be used as eyeshadow, eyeliner, or both!  They deliver incredible color payout, but feel lightweight.  The new fat shape allows you to cover large areas more quickly.  Use the thin tip as eyeliner, or the side of the tip as a generous swipe of eyeshadow.


Color:  Sin
I love this shadow pencil!  I have it in Lit, Midnight Cowboy, Sin, and Delinquent. It goes on really smooth if you put it on after moisturizer or primer.  Don't powder prime your lids before this or it will not go on well.  Once it is on, it stays put all day.  It is a great eyeliner as well. I like to use Lit ( a golden bronze) all over the lid for a no make up, natural look, but still looks like you did something.  I also like to use the Midnight Cowboy (beige with silver sparkle) on the inside corners of my eyes, and as a liner around the entire eye for some sparkle.  The color Sin is a really pretty neutral pinky gold color and I like to use it all over the lid for a day look, or you can put a little on top of a different shadow in the center of the lid for extra sparkle.  Delinquent (dark purple with a pinkinsh sparkle) is a gorgeous purple color and really nice as  an eyeliner.  Another way I use the more neutral colors is on the center of my lips after lipstick.  It gives them a pretty sparkle.  The pencils are chunky and cute and are lasting a long time. Be careful not to sharpen them too much or the tip will come off when you run it across your lid.  Keep the product part short on the pencil.  These are really great and I will probably be trying more colors.
