Better Late Than Never: My New Obsession with Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes Mascara

I'm super late to the Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes train. I tried to like it for a long time. Seriously, I did. I kept trying to apply it and trying to apply it, and every single time I would poke myself in the eye with the curiously shaped, spiky round applicator. I just couldn't get the hang of it, and finally I gave up. But recently I decided to give it one last go -- because I don't give up in the name of beauty! And guess what happened...

I am now in LOVE with it! Once I got the hang of application, it became a breeze -- and my lashes looked amazing. A few tips for applying:

1) With a very light hand, brush from outer corner to inner corner with short, quick strokes.

2) Angle the brush while you apply -- at the outer corners, angle toward your cheekbones and move it progressively inward.

3) Brush through very lightly with an eyelash comb to remove any clumps.

One coat is miraculously enough to give you full, lush, thick lashes. Mine actually hit my glasses! Now I'm a total convert.

Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes Mascara retails for $32 at
