How would you like to have high-impact eyes - like Megan Fox's above? Bold, voluptuous lashes cloaked at a stroke with the precision of a makeup artist? Following Eyes to Kill (the latest standard for luxury mascaras) and Eyes to Kill Excess (an instant volume booster), Eyes to Kill Lash Stretch Lengthening Mascara ($30) offers a new variation for a "killer gaze."
"Eyes to Kill Lash Stretching Mascara creates a high-definition fringe in one single sweep. The lashes are amplified and lengthened to the extreme for a sharp and intense gaze." I found that's not just marketing hype. This is a great mascara for lengthening and "realistic" volumizing in just a few strokes (I always use more than one - I expect that). There is no clumping, thanks to the well-designed brush, and it lengthens and separates the lashes easily. It gives the lashes a flexible feel, which looks and feels natural.
Linda Cantello, International Makeup Artist and Creative Director, described Stretch Lengthening Mascara this way, “Lengthens lash by lash without overloading. Pure black. A precision brush inspired by make-up artist techniques, yet extremely ease to handle. It has everything you expect from a mascara." I'll say! Perhaps a little more.
Armani's Micro-Fil lengthening technology gives Eyes to Kill Stretch Lengthening Mascara the perfect balance between hard and soft micro-waxes and incredibly fine smoothing polymers. The former define and curl the lashes, while the latter easily smooth and coat the lashes along their entire length. Nicely fast and easy to apply, the formula is said to coat each lash by 360% from root to tip. Thanks to a wealth of black pigments, the formula makes the lashes a perfect shade of black (from my perspective). It's also available in an enthralling midnight blue, which I must see as soon as it arrives at the store. The deep blue shade is not available online yet either.
For maximum lengthening, the Eyes to Kill Stretch Lengthening Mascara brush adopts an asymmetric form. On its flat side the short bristles are arranged on the diagonal, with the ability to capture and cloak the lashes from the root. Turn with the flick of the hand and there is the rounded side, with its bristles set in fan shapes, stretching each lash, coating it right to the tip.The lash fringe is lengthened, curved, and perfectly defined. You get instant lash extension without overcoating.
With its bold design, the Eyes to Kill Stretch Lengthening Mascara packaging is cast in champagne-colored metal, giving it the appearance of a real sculpture. All of Giorgio Armani's packaging is elegant. This new mascara continues the tradition.
Eyes to Kill Stretch Lengthening Mascara was available online at Armani Beauty a few days ago, but appears to be temporarily out of stock. I'm sure it will be restocked soon. It will be available any minute, if it's not already, at Armani Fifth Avenue and select fine department stores, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom, and Barneys.
