LashControl Review.

When I was asked to review a squeezable mascara I wasn’t sure quite what to expect. But Lash Control has a genius products on their hands. The purple bit of the tube is soft and gel like. As you pull out the wand you squeeze and it pulls all the extra mascara off. No mess, no clumps and no dried up clumps of mascara at the end of the tube.

All great but how is the mascara? Fabulous! It glides on super easy and really defines my lashes. It definitely fans out my lashes and makes them appear much longer. Love, love, love can’t wait to try the rest of their line up.

 

 
LashControl® is the only mascara with SQUEEZE CONTROL

LashControl® has a fun, squeezable mascara tube that allows you to control the amount of mascara on your brush!
Squeeze A LOT as you pull the brush out for a natural, enhanced look. Squeeze A LITTLE if you are looking for drama and layer, layer, layer!

NO CLUMPS. NO FLAKES.

No bacteria or drying out from pumping your brush!
Available in Black Lengthening, Black Volumizing, and Clear Coat.

$20

Selena Gomez Elle’s July 2012 Cover Girl!

Selena Gomez: The New It Girl
At only 19, Gomez is mogul on the rise: a TV and music star, a fashion entrepreneur, and, as Justin Bieber’s better half, the envy of Beliebers everywhere. Now, with a string of gritty indies on the horizon, she’s poised to become Hollywood’s newest It Girl.

On Bieber renting out LA’s Staples Center for a private screening of Titanic: “If I’ll share anything with you, it’s that he really is a hopeless romantic. I had just mentioned it in the car – all I said is that I really want to see Titanic again, and then…”

On growing up poor:
“I can remember about seven times when our car got stuck on the highway because we’d run out of gas money.” Still her mother, “saved up to take me to concerts. She took me to museums, aquariums, to teach me about the world, about what’s real.”

“Disney is a machine, so people automatically assume that you can’t work for the channel unless you act and sing and dance and sign up for all that. That’s absolutely not true. I always did everything the way I wanted to do it.”

“I get offered the teenybopper movies, and I’ve done that. I haven’t done a mega-hundred-billion-dollar Transformers movie, but that’s not what I want to do either.”

On seeing Jennifer Lopez in Selena at age five: “I made a bustier out of a bathing suit that I dyed black. I put glue and glitter all over it and I wouldn’t take it off.”
