Clé de Peau Beauté Perfect Lash Mascara may be the most expensive mascara I’ve ever touched.
It’s $50! — a price that makes Guerlain Cils D’Enfer, Chanel Le Volume and YSL Faux Cils look like castoffs in a discount bin.
Logically, I know that it’s completely insane to even consider a mascara that costs as much as two bags of groceries at Trader Joe’s (that’s a lot of Pretzel Slims), but oh, my gosh, it’s the mutha-truckin’ ish.
I don’t have a lot to work with in the lash department naturally, but when I wear Perfect Lash, I look like I got lash extensions in Beverly Hills. My short, wispy lashes look impeccably long, lifted and defined, and I feel like a 1940s screen siren when she bats her eyes.
One layer works well, but I prefer two.
Perfect Lash also has a waterproof formula and doesn’t smudge or flake.
Thankfully for pocketbooks everywhere, it does have flaws…like it’s extremely difficult to remove. So difficult that I feel like I’m giving myself a deep-tissue massage when I go to take it off. It takes two rounds of DHC Cleansing Oil, and then one pump of Neutrogena Gentle Cleanser.
If it were $25 cheaper, I’d use this and never look back…
