Review: Anastasia Lash Lifting Mascara & Brow Definer


I LOVE Anastasia. So i was quite excited to try two new products.
Lash Lifting Mascara ($22)- A silky, non-clumping, double effect mascara that adds volume and curl. The secret to getting this to hold the curl in your lashes is holding the wand at the base of the lashes, allowing the waxes to set. This has quickly become one of my favorites. It's lightweight, doesn't flake, doesn't clump and doesn't weigh lashes down.

Face Candy Grade: A

Brow Definer ($22)- A dual ended brow pencil and brow gel in one. Not my favorite Anastasia product, but one worth mentioning. I throw it in my purse, just in case. Fill your brows in with the pencil, then set with the clear gel. I have major issues with my brow hairs going wonky and pointing every-which way, so the gel is an awesome way to tame the hairs. BUT, guess what? You can find out for yourself.

Face Candy Grade: B+

Win!!! the Brow Definer by commenting on what your favorite brow product is. I'll pick a winner on April 20th, 2009. Open to US Residents only.

I've never had a brow product other than tweezers but I have used clear mascara as a brow tamer!

Joanne said...

I'm not very brow sophisticated -- when I'm having a bad brow day, I just use a clear mascara (any one will do) to set it. Thank you for having another giveaway!

My fave brow product is clear mascara. It is so inexpensive and I use it as a brow gel. keeps my brow hairs in place.

Vanessa S said...

In terms of my favorite brow product, I just use brown eyeshadow for a natural look...It works for me very well. Thanks!!!

What I use for my eyebrows is a brown eye liner. It's the perfect color for me and the wax holds my brows in shape long enough. I'm sure there's better alternatives, but this is all I have to work with right now! :D

I like Brow Zings by Benefit Cosmetics. The cream and wax combination keeps brow hairs neatly in place.

Olivia said...

my fave eyebrow product has to be anastasia's tweezers. i could live without filling them in, but if theyre not shaped properly, i'd die!

Mariza said...

I like Benefit's Brow Zings! The wax and powder make my brows look filled and natural.

CCakaJapan said...

I like Maybelline's new define-a-brow gel...it does what you liked about keeping hairs in place. Plus, it's pretty inexpensive:)

thanks so much!!

aaj83 said...

my favorite brow product is a brow trimmer i have so i can snip away the extras! ;)

but obviously i need something better like Anastasia products to get them in better shape! ;)

Paint Me Gorgeous said...

Prestige brow liner in dark brown! matches my hair perfectly! hehe

eikcaj said...

Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil is my favorite eyebrow product, actually! It's double sided: one end has the pencil itself and the other has the brush thing like a mascara wand for blending (ahh i forgot what it's called). I use this with the the Anastasia Clear Brow Gel... which is really good! I originally wished that it came together (like their newest creation) but now I'm wondering how I'd blend without the wand blender thing... HM? Well I think I'd still love to try it :) It sure is great for on-the-go though... very compact! But I must KNOW what really follows that "but" that you are letting us find out on our own! You must TELL! I shall stop typing now. Thanks for the giveaway!

lutefisk said...

my favorite brow product is a small scissors fot trimming. Once my brows look neat, I am all set.

Laney said...

I really love Smashbox's angled liner brush and MAC's Brun shadow together for my brows : )

Nina said...

I've used clear mascara to tame my brows and I only groom them using my trusty tweezers!

anntje said...

i have never tried a brow product i've liked.. which is actually quite sad because my eyebrows are currently somewhat lopsided! i've tried a bunch of products (though no Anastasia yet) and what has worked best so far is cheap eyeshadow with a wet angled brush with firm bristles.

I would have to go with clear mascara because it's so little yet makes a big difference! :)

Bebemiqui said...

My fave is the good old eyelash curler! Can't go wrong.

LilyBiscuit said...

My favorite brow product was discontinued. It was MAC brow gel in "Sophisticated"....a golden blonde color. I used it to highlight my brown brows. Now I need new brow products :o) Thanks! vac924@gmail.com

joannaonthelake said...

My favorite brow product is most definitely my tweezerman tweezers! I try not to over pluck my brows, I just am fanatic about getting rid of any stray hairs and I like to make sure my brows are well defined and frame my eyes perfectly. I am lucky my eyebrows are not very thick so maintaining them is relatively easy. The reason this product is so appealing to me is because it will keep my brows in place once I comb them and apply it. I hate when I look in the mirror and my bangs have moved my brows so some of the hairs are out of place, drives me nuts, giggle! Thanks so much for the opportunity to enter.

Fave brow product is a really good wax artist!!!

luckichicka said...

my favorite brow product has to be tweezers. Without them I would be a crazy, hairy uni-brow sportin chic. I say that's a no-no. Thanks for the giveaway!

Christi B. said...

My favorite brow product is Laura Mercier brow powder in blonde. I really need Anastasia's clear brow gel to use with it.

rit said...

sonia kashuk eyebrow quad.. and sometimes alima's powder in raven.. but i've been itching to try a new eyebrow product!!!

Moshi said...

My favorite brow product would have to be brow gel since I don't use anything on my brows b/c I lack any brow products.

Like another poster, I've never used a brow product other than tweezers and am not that great at using those! I need all the help I can get!

Aimee M K said...

My fave brow product is definitely clear mascara, my current tube is by Covergirl. Great for taming my eyebrows and creating a defined shape when I get lazy between tweezings! ;)

Melinda said...

honestly my favorite brow tool is a tweezer

hi said...

Anastasia GoBrows! Best stuff ever :)

Gabrielle said...

A really really great semi-stiff-bristle angle brush.

I use it to apply (sparingly) a bit of dark matte eyeshadow to give my sparse asian eyebrows a little more weight, without looking "drawn-in"...

Danielle said...

My favorite brow product is a pair of Tweezerman tweezers!

Kimberly said...

I always use a matching brow liner & sometimes some clear gel to hold them in place. I'd love to try the Brow Pen though.

Just_Kelly said...

I keep it simple: covergirl clear mascara to shape and get my big, bushy brows to stay in place!

greentaffy2 said...

I'm poor so I use the NYX Brow duo.

michele said...

i just got the anastasia brow duo and have been using it a lot lately. it has a brow liner in a universal brown, that is a little waxy and keeps hairs in place... and on the other end is a highlighter for the brow bone. it's quick to use and makes a world of a difference on brows!

YZgirl4 said...

I am so bad. I don't use anything on my brows. i would love to try this!

Pamela937 said...

I not very brow smart. This would help.

Amanda said...

MAC spiked eyebrow pencil! I use it every single day and would never go out of the house without it.

gc51524 said...

I've heard so many good things about anastasia! and i am eager to try their fantastic line!

Marilyn M. Tycer said...

I love Clinique's brow powder. My brows are a little sparse at the ends, and it really helps my whole face look better! :)

Leigh Ann said...

Tweezers are the only thing I've ever used on my brows but would love to try Anastasia's products. I've read they are really good.

Rachael Williams said...

I love Milani's brow kit! That and my tweezers:)

juau4 said...

I have not used a brow product other than tweezers; and it's time to do more. I'd love to try Anastasia's brow definer!

bison61 said...

The only thing I use on my brows is a clear mascara to keep them in line

oldergirlbeauty said...

I use my Ulta brow gel, but I should say that I have gotten my mom Anastasia's Brow Serum to help her brows after she took a tumble and stitched her eybrow up. It really worked to help regrow her brow.

Heather said...

I love using clear mascara on my brows to keep them in place!

windycindy said...

Hi, Unfortunately, I naturally do not have hardly any eyebrows. They are also a very light brown color.
I have yet to find a natural looking brow product. Please enter me in your fabulous giveaway drawing.
Many thanks.....Cindi

Lucy said...

my favorite brow product is by Smashbox. I use the dark brown brow color. One side is color and the other is wax. It's the only product for my eyebrows I use. I use Tweezerman tweezers.

MaggieM said...

I've only ever used tweezers and a dark brown eyebrow pencil (Maybelline) so I am definitely in need of an update:)

sunchicka said...

Mine is eyebrow pencils they help define the shape of your brows.

zoe hunter said...

I hate to admit that i dont use any brow products, but i do get them done every 2 weeks at the threading place down the street. i would love to try this definer first!!

samara said...

anything to help tame my brows is great.

nicki72182 said...

I've actually never used a brow product. Just my trusty tweezers. I've been looking for something to try and this looks like a great product to have around. Thanks for the giveaway!

mbeymer said...

I have light blonde disappearing brows, I tint them monthly to match my red naturally red hair. For a recession proof fix up and tint extender I like Revlon brow fantasy, the lightest shade is just enough to help add definition post-tint and fill-in as the color grow out. It comes in basic fair - med - dark shades with a pencil on one end and gel on the other for extra shaping. The gel does get clumpy quickly so the drug store pricing is perfect for replacing frequently.

hofken said...

Anastasia brow shadow is my favorite

Jackie said...

I need brow enchancements so I use brow pencils like from Maybelline.

Mellissa said...

My brow candy is Mac e/s in Espresso and used a wee bit of hairspray to tame my wild hairs (down you wild beast of eyebrow hairs).

lisa said...

my favorite brow candy would have to be Mac e/s Espresso then using hairspray (not too much, just a wee bit) to hold my wild beasts in place (down you untamed hairs) and voila I the brow tamer, have calmed the monsters down!

moniker said...
