Do you also have those dreams where you look in the mirror and see yourself with Terminator eyes?
Thanks to Lashlight ($25), the newest mascara from Too Faced, “futuristic cyborg” can now be your face of the day.
My right eye looks like it’s about to shoot lasers… Spooky!
Something tells me Too Faced didn’t have flesh-covered robots bent on the destruction of womankind when they designed Lashlight, but they still outfitted it with hella upgrades!
I think it should be noted that the LED lights in the base of the wand also make this mascara the *world’s best* for finding your house keys in the dark.
The way Too Faced creative director and founder Jerrod Blandino explains it, he got the idea for the LEDs from the times he struggled to apply mascara to clients in dimly lit (but oh so glam!) locations.
NOTE: I’ve never had to apply mascara in the dark — trapped, say, with a shirtless Ryan Reynolds — but, thanks to Lashlight, I find it comforting to know that I could.
Picture taken in my darkened bathroom… How Blair Witchy is this?
Too Faced also claims that “liquid crystalline particles” in the Lashlight formula act like microscopic mirrors, brightening up the eyes by reflecting light off and around the lashes.
I’m always looking for ways to brighten up my eyes (blast you, dark circles!), but I’m bummed to say that I couldn’t see a noticeable difference in that regard.
I did, however, see noticeably longer, plumper lashes after two coats, and they kept their curl until …
… the smudging and flaking kicked in toward the end of the day. It wasn’t terrible, but I expected better behavior from a $25 mascara.
I think Lashlight’s a pretty good mascara — above average in terms of lengthening, thickening and curl hold — and I love how glossy and dark it makes my lashes look. I just wish it were a little less expensive. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B-
I had a hard time staying motivated today. I just wasn’t in the mood for anything productive, but on each of my breaks I snuck in quick dance breaks in the name of “artistic inspiration.”
I think they helped.

How was your day? What are you up to tonight? I’m looking forward to watching the latest episode of Glee on Hulu, yay!
