Description: Ardell Lash Magic Blending Mascara is a mascara that is specifically designed to be used with false eyelashes. This water-based mascara blends your natural lashes into the false lashes without damaging the false lashes or clumping them together.
Ardell Lash Magic Blending Mascara is a fragrance-free product and is suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. This mascara only comes in one color, black.
The company claims, “Lash Magic is not your ordinary mascara, Lash Magic Blending Mascara simply blends your natural lashes into artificial ones making them undetectable. Lash Magic does not add length or thickness to your lashes so your lashes will remain clump-free. The Lash Magic formula is water soluble and can be easily removed without ruining a perfect pair of lashes.”
Discussion: You already know by now that I have applied more false eyelashes in my life than I can count. Until I discovered this product, I always used a dry spoolie for blending, or sometimes a very light coat of a somewhat dry formula of water-based mascara. I was intrigued when I first discovered this product many years ago. I have been using this for over a decade and always keep some in my makeup kit.
Daily Review: After the completion of eye makeup and the application of a pair of false strip eyelashes, I blended my own natural lashes into the false lashes first with a dry spoolie and then a coat of this Ardell Lash Magic Blending Mascara. I only use this from underneath my own lashes into the false eyelashes with a side-to-side wiggling motion. This mascara is a very dry formula. Because it is not wet it does not remove the curl from natural or human-hair false lashes. It does not look or feel like a regular volumizing or lengthening mascara. It does not add volume or length to your own lashes or to the false lashes. It also does not clump them or make them stick together. This can be easily washed off of the false eyelashes with warm water. (I will have a future post showing how to do this in great detail. You must be careful when cleansing your false lashes as it is quite easy to ruin them.)
Overall Review: Ardell Lash Magic Blending Mascara does not make my nose run, eyes water, turn red or burn. I have never experienced any sensitivities from using this mascara and I have never had any issues from the hundreds of clients I have used this on.
This is an excellent product that performs precisely as it is supposed to do. It serves one purposes and does it well. I do wish the wand was a little smaller and more tapered. I also wish it was readily available at more retailers and I did not have to order it online.
