I've started wearing eye shadow more frequently, but I seem to be unable to apply mascara without getting it all over my eyelids! I've tried a few different brands - L'Oreal telescoping (lengthening), LashBlast (volumizing), New York Colour City Curls (curling), Big Curls Don't Cry (waterproof, curling), and Maybelline Great Lash (volumizing), to name a few - and I end up with it all over my newly applied eye shadow. In the recent past, I might have this happen occasionally, especially when I was rushed, but this is happening every single morning! I put on one, maybe two coats, and it doesn't seen to matter which type of mascara I use - I'm trying to hide the black spots with a darker eye shadow I use as eye liner. (Yesterday, I removed my eye shadow to start again, and the second attempt was even worse!)
I've noticed these mascaras are wet for a really long time, much longer than they should be (I can apply it, put on my jewellery, and my lashes are still wet when I start getting dressed.) I've also noticed the brushes are plastic, not the hair type brushes.
I've replaced all my mascaras over the last few weeks, so I have no old ones as comparison. (And they'd be dried out from last year, any way!) So I turn to you, my lovely readers. Are you noticing this problem? I've asked a few friends if they've experiencing this issue, and they tell me I'm not alone. (I can assure you I'm not some kind of idiot who can't apply make-up!) Any ideas or suggestions for me? I'm really frustrated!
