Review: Anastasia of Beverly Hills Lash Genius

My favorite Brow Expert (I couldn't live with out her Ash Blonde brow pencil), Anastasia of Beverly Hills, is releasing a new product next month called Lash Genius. A revolutionary Water-Proof Top Coat for your everyday mascara. It instantly waterproofs, locks in, and protects your mascara through rain, tears, and contact solution. The colorless topcoat won’t harden or clump your lashes like traditional waterproof mascara formula's tend to do. Lash Genius can also be applied to your False Lashes after mascara giving them a blended more natural look.

I greatly dislike waterproof mascara's. They're dry, clumpy, difficult to remove, and I always end up losing a few lashes after using them. Lash Genius is a wonderful product because you don't have to give up wearing your favorite mascara when faced with a misty situation. It's like an umbrella for your lashes!
For the past couple weeks I've been testing Anastasia's Lash Genius over my mascara (Prestige My Biggest Lashes) through Seattle down pours, sweaty rock shows, allergies, and tear jerker movies. To share the results I gave it the "Splash Test". After applying the clear, colorless serum over my mascara and allowing it to dry I splashed my face with water.
 As you can see no raccoon eyes or mascara tears running down my face on the LG side. Success! The without side? Not so pretty :) It works exactly as it claims, lasts all day, and is easily removed with eye makeup remover. I can see Lash Genius being especially useful this summer at the beach and when doing Bridal makeup. Now if only they'd make something like this for the rest of our face makeup!

 Anastasia of Beverly Hills Lash Genius ($21) will be available in May at SEPHORA and wherever Anastasia products are sold.
