Halloween Beauty Special: These Scary Eyelash Products Work!

Givenchy Noir Couture 4 in 1 Mascara / shu eyelash curl & karl eyelash curler

Out of all the makeup products in the world, eyelash products are really high up there in the scary department. A lot of them look like torture devices: metal lash curlers, gigantic wands, spiky ball wands… the list goes on. It’s a really terrifying lash world we live in.

But don’t be afraid! It turns out that some of these nerve-racking products and tools really work, and I want to show you a couple of them today. 🙂

One of the most world renowned tools gets a cutesy/creepy face lift with shu eyelash curl & karl eyelash curler ($24) from the Karl Lagerfeld for shu uemura Holiday Collection. I have been a fan of the shu uemura eyelash curler for years now. If I have 30 seconds in my morning to get ready, they will be spent curling my lashes with my shu. This special limited edition curler comes with our favourite creepy doll, mon shu, in case you need that extra bit of spookiness to wake you up. 😉 The collection is available starting in November (that’s tomorrow!) exclusively at Holt Renfrew across Canada and shuuemura-usa.com in the US.

Givenchy Noir Couture 4 in 1 Mascara

A wand that looks like 3 spiky balls? This one looks like it will hurt, but recently I’ve been reaching for Givenchy Noir Couture 4 in 1 Mascara in 1 Black Satin ($35, Sephora) when I can’t be bothered to apply other eye makeup. It promises 4 benefits: volume, curl, length, and complete lash care. I always feel like most mascaras over-promise on benefits, but I think Noir Couture Mascara does a great job on all of the above.

After one coat, Noir Couture brings decent volume and fantastic length, and holds a curl well. Two coats brings fluttery voluminous lashes, while still keeping the hairs curled and supple. Apparently, Givenchy’s exclusive Lash Booster Expert Complex protects and fortifies each lash. I do like that my lashes don’t feel “hairsprayed” crunchy while wearing Noir Couture. The 3 spiky spheres do a fantastic job grabbing on to each lash, coating them up and away. I’m a big fan (and my lashes fan out, heh. /corny).

  • I don’t know if I’ve ever come across a scary beauty product, but I do know that I absolutely cannot live without my shu uemura eyelash curler. I have the original, but I would certainly love the adorable little charm on the KL version!

    HAHAHA! I’ve never thought of lash “accoutrements” as scary before, but dang! if you’re not right! Kind of medieval-ish looking, but I can’t live without these 2! I’ve been a fan of the Shu lash curler for eons as well, although lately I’ve been alternating with the CHANEL version as well. As to this mascara, I pronounced it my “holy grail” mascara a few weeks ago, and that opinion hasn’t changed since. It’s amazing; doesn’t smudge or flake off and hours later still looks freshly applied. “Hairspray lashes” … too funny! By the way, even without the mascara, your lashes have the most amazing curl!

  • Yup, my sister and the bf were very puzzled when they saw an eye lash curler! Why would you let it near your eyes, lol. I really love little Mon Shu, she is so cute!
