Dual-Ended Mascara

What A Pair: Dual-Ended Mascara

OK, so the concept of double-sided mascara isn't entirely novel. But after checking out Two-Timer Mascara from The Balm, I thoroughly enjoy having two options in one product to choose from. After a shopping trip, I noticed that more and more of these mascara pairs are being developed and I'm pretty stoked about it. If you share my enthusiasm, you'll love these three dual-sided mascaras too. And of course, if you know of any others — do tell!

Le 2 de Guerlain Mascara ($35) is a mascara that houses two different brushes on either side of the tube. The first brush curls, adds volume and length, while the second (mini-sized) brush gets to those tiny, hard-to-reach lashes on the inner and outer corners of the eye. I haven't tried it yet, but it sure looks supafly.

Elizabeth Arden Two Brush Mascara ($18) is a multi-functional, conditioning mascara that is available only in a deep black shade (however, I hear there are more to come). One side thickens, separates and elongates and the other brush is smaller to ensure that no lash will ever go naked.

For one other double-ended mascara,


Lancome Cils Design Pro- Custom Design Double Mascara ($35) has two brushes to help create the ultimate lash. The fluffy side lengthens and the other smaller brush helps coat the fine lashes (again on the inner and outer corners) while combing out any clumps. Available only in black.

I tried double-ended mascara a few years ago, and used up a tube, but never bought it again, because it just clumped up horribly and took too long to get it right...

I just threw out a double ended tube of waterproof Smashbox. Mascara on one end, eye makeup remover on the other. It was terrible mascara and flaked off all the time, so I never actually had to use the remover.

Until my Lash Blast puts another brush in the other end, I am happy with what I've got. :)
