Mascara: The Pros and The Cons

Now that you know the pros about eyelash tints, let’s talk mascara and the great or not so great reasons to wear it!

Mascara Pros:

  • It will give your lashes a color boost plus length and volume depending on the type you wear.
  • It can be done at home or wherever you are. (Throw it in your purse and go!)
  • There’s a huge variety of mascaras to choose from these days…even for sensitive eyes!

Mascara Cons:

  • It can be time consuming to apply.
  • Smudges happen!
  • Clumps happen too and are not pretty.
  • It can be costly purchasing tube after tube to find the PERFECT one.
  • It requires application and removal each day…more time.
  • Even some waterproof options can still run down your face.
  • The color and texture may not look as natural as a professional lash tint.

It’s clear to see that the cons outweigh the pros, but don’t let us sway you. OUR TIP: At least give eyelash tinting a try and see how YOU think it pairs up against your tried and true mascara. Then you’ll know which one is right for you!

Can You Wear Mascara with a Lash Tint?

In case you were wondering about this very question, let’s dive in! The short answer: Yes!

You can wear mascara when you have a lash tint. Our hope is that you don’t need to though. However, we know you may still want a little oomph from that wonderous wand and if that’s the case, go for it.

Another option you might like even better: Adding a lash lift along with your tint. If it’s length and curl you’re missing from mascara, an eyelash lift will provide just that! Ready for the best part?

A lash lift can last up to 8 weeks. 🙌

If you do choose to wear mascara, allow us to brag on ours: Amplify + Extend Mascara Duo! Our tube has two seperate wands that provide two different results. The amplify wand provides volume while the extend wand gives you that length you love. The cherry on top 🍒 here is that our mascara is safe to be worn with not only a lash lift and tint, but also lash extensions. Swing by a salon near you to purchase!
