12 Daring Beauty Products to Try in 2012
Hourglass Film Noir Lash Lacquer and Estée Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara in Extreme Teal
Web producer Nathalie Gorman has been using the same black mascara for years, but adding a layer of glossy Hourglass top coat over it in horizontal (not vertical) strokes made her lashes look longer and shinier than ever—almost as if she had spent time gluing on false ones. The next day she tried Estée Lauder's turquoise mascara—a color that showed up on the runways of L'Wren Scott and Gucci, but one Gorman never thought she'd wear on her lashes. "It's not immediately obvious that I'm wearing such an intense shade, but it really brings out the blue in my eyes," she says.
