Do These Products Really Work?
THE CLAIM An adjustable dial allows you to vary the amount of mascara deposited on your brush so you can use the same formula for day and night.
THE EXPERT SAYS "The adjustable applicator is amazing," says N.Y.C. makeup artist Nick Barose, noting that it saves time and money. "It spares you from having to wipe away excess product when you want a more subtle look."
OUR VERDICT Love! The sheer, clump-free formula let us leapfrog from natural-looking lashes (setting 1) on Saturday afternoon to major volume (setting 3) later that night. Setting 2which provided serious definition with minimal heavinesswas our sweet spot for daily office wear.
