Need a Lift? Score Lashes That Soar Sky High With the New Too Faced Lash Injection Extreme Tubing Mascara

It occurred to me this morning as I was dressing up my lashes with a layer of Too Faced Lash Injection Extreme Volume Tubing Mascara that I could (and often do) spend entire days playing with eye makeup.


Entire days.

A few hours patting primer here, a few more drawling liner there, shadow blending, blending, blending, and then the sun sets behind Novato’s verdant hills in the distance…

Of course, I do take breaks for tabby play time and pasta (of course!). 🙂

Naturally, good chunks of time are devoted to applying mascara, since my natural lashes are a little on the uninspiring side, and I feel like my eyes look much bigger and brighter when I’ve lifted, curled and lengthened my lashes.

My latest lash love stars Too Faced Lash Injection Extreme Volume Tubing Mascara.

Whew! Now that’s a mouthful.

Too Faced reformulated their old-school mascara of the same name and gave it a new outfit. It’s $21 and available in a single shade called Black.

If you’re unfamiliar with tubing mascaras, no, they are not named after the popular pastime that usually involves bodies of water and coolers filled with adult beverages. They’re named after the way the formulas encapsulate lashes forming tubes that surround each hair to extend and thicken them.

Brands often claim that tubing mascaras are particularly great for humid climates as they resist flaking and smudging.

I never gave the original Lash Injection a try, so I don’t know how it compares to the new one, but Too Faced says that it’s much improved. Version 2.0 is supposed to stretch and lengthen lashes better than before.

How does it fare? Well, like a push-up bra for my fringe! Two coats of the waterproof formula applied with the included brush (in the style of a DiorShow brush) boosts my lashes with lift and length.

The formula does a pretty good job holding the curl, too, keeping it firm but flexible, and I don’t detect any smears of flakes, not even at the end of the day.

Lovers of super thick lashes, take note — even though Lash Injection visibly fattens each lash fairly well, it doesn’t quite satisfy my inner drag queen, which is why I’ll probably add a thickening mascara like Ultraflesh Panthera Mascara on top.

Not to take anything away from Lash Injection Extreme Tubing Mascara. If you’re into lash looks long on length, lift and curl, with just a dash of extra thickness, you should be good to go.


PRICE: $21

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. TGIF! 🙂

    Mascara is something that I’m never completely happy with!
    No matter how false they look I will want more!
    More volume!
    More length!
    I want lashes of ridiculous proportions that fan our perfectly and reach up to my eyebrows whilst still being able to smuggly proclaim them as my own when people ask.

    But I guess until such an amazing product comes out I’ll definitely take a look at this! And Ultraflesh Panthera Mascara too because I can’t have enough kitty cat in my life.

    Wonderful review!

    My issue w/ the old formula was it dried out in a month and then flaked, but it was awesome at first.

  3. Melissa says:

    I really like the overall effect of the mascara, it lifts your lashes and makes them look long, but they still look really natural and pretty. May have to run out and buy a tube now!

    Please have a look at my blog, would love to see what you think –

    And Tabs is running the show – AS USUSUAL! Lol

  6. I am personally into mascaras that offer a balance between volume and length. I’ve had VERY good lengthening mascaras which end up looking odd on me because I don’t have enough lashes! I’ve been experimenting with the Dior lash serum, and I’m pretty pleased with it! I just have to try it with all the open tubes of mascaras I have to see how it works best!
