I’ll Take Two Coats of the New Milani Grandissimo Lashes and a Vanilla Scone, Please

Published in: Drugstore Beauty Finds, Eyes, Makeup, Milani

Milani Grandissimo Lashes

Here I’m either wearing two coats of Milani Grandissimo ($5.49) on my upper and lower lashes or thinking, “Oh, what a majestic pegasus!”

“Um, yeah, could I please have a Grande Grandissimo Lash and one of those YUMMY-looking vanilla scones?”

Haha! Okay, you caught me. Part of the reason I like new Milani Grandissimo Lashes mascara is because it sounds like something I’d order at Starbucks instead of my regular grande soy chai latte (no foam, please). That, and I just like saying the name over and over again… Grandissimo. Grandissimo. Grandissimo.

Just launched for spring, Grandissimo and it’s oversized accompanying brush promise a false lash look with “incredible volume,” and all without smearing or clumps.

I’ve had my eyes peeled for a budget version of my favorite dramatic mascara du jour, Le Volume de Chanel, and I was hoping Grandissimo would be a good drugstore dupe.

Yes? Cool! Follow me. I’ll drive. :)

You and I are SO hitting up that drugstore over there…

Wait — you say you have to fill out those TPS reports first (LAME)? Okay, well, you know where to find me. I’ll be in the beauty aisle, by the Milani stuff, ogling the new Ultrafine Liquid Eye Liners.

I can’t believe they’re less than $10! How did Milani manage to make them pigmented, waterproof (long-lasting), quick drying, AND give them such a high-shine finish?
