What is one of my biggest beauty concerns? Lashes, yo. Maturing is taking it's toll on my face and one area in which I'm being hardest hit is my hooded eyes. I inherited my eye shape, there's nothing I can do about that. I also inherited "the droop." As I mature, that once sexy bedroom eyes shape is swiftly morphing into something I don't find all that cute when I look in my mirror. It appears that my hoods are resting on my mobile lids and eating my lashes. Appears? In truth, that is exactly what is happening. Gah! I would prefer to have the drooping fixed but that isn't in my budget so, I do the best I can to slow the progression with skin care. I also try hard to best emphasize my lashes with lash serum to encourage longer, thicker, naturally prettier lashes. I occasionally use false lashes and of course, I pile on the mascara!
And that is where Bellimisa comes in to play.

The large, spiraled bristle wand is slightly hourglass shaped and holds plenty of the thick mascara for delivery to my lashes. Application of this particular formula is a bit of a learning curve. I quickly discovered that the technique I normally use with my thinner, wetter mascaras doesn't work with Bellimisa. For my lashes, I get the best application by starting in at the very base of my lashes, working the bristles of the wand in with a firm wiggling motion then wiggle and roll as I slowly work my way up and out and repeat. I go back for more mascara, when I need it and I keep working the same lash until I am happy then I move on to the next.
I don't feel that this mascara layers well. When I attempted to do multiple coats, I ended up with spiky, spidery ashes, a look that I don't like, on my own eyes. Combing my lashes out to separate them resulted in flaking and a bigger mess. Maybe user error on my part? I don't know but I do know that for me, one super generous coat delivers the best result.
This is one very generous coat, applied one eye, at a time, to curled lashes. I get nice volume, my natural length is emphasized but this mascara is heavy and it weighs down most of the curl I so carefully put in my lashes. I think that one of those snazzy, heated comb style lash curlers may be a good tool to use in concert with this mascara. I should pick one up and try it.
Okay, let's get down to the nitty-gritty. Formula, thick. I'm used to thinner, "wetter" mascara so this one was a bit of a learning curve for me but once I got the hang of it, I have no problem with application. Look, nice! I get good volume and my natural length is enhanced. I don't like this mascara in multiple coats, one good, all in coat works best for me. Wear is okay. I get all day wear without any smearing or transferring. I do experience some very minor flaking that is easily dealt with by flicking them away with a Q-Tip. I would prefer no flaking, at all but it's minor enough that it's not a deal breaker. This mascara doesn't have much of any scent and it is non irritating to my very sensitive eyes.

I did an eye look with my Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow Collection and my Bellimisa Masterful Eyes Mascara. I was able to score the palette in it's first release and I like it! But this picture is a cautionary tale for me to remember to use primer. My psycho shadow eating lids were already doing their worst to my eye look by the time I got a chance to take these pictures. Anyway, if you missed out on that palette and wanted it, it is being re released and now, I can talk about it, now and again since it is no longer unobtainable.
