I’ve mentioned before that I’m a fan of Jesse’s Girl, an affordable makeup brand that you can find online and at select RiteAid and Longs drugstores.
I can’t stop singing the praises of their liquid lipstick Matte Finish Lip Color (reviewed here and here), the only one I can wear without drying out my already dry lips! I love it so much I have two shades: Angelic and Sultry. And I love their Julie G nail polish. I have several shades from their fab Bohemian Dreams collection that I’ve gotta show you, but not today. Finally, their liquid eyeliners are simply the best value, period, the end.
But today, I have two new products:
- Dial-A-Lash Adjustable Control Mascara
- Latex Free Blending Sponge.
Jesse’s Girl Dial-A-Lash Adjustable Control Mascara
There seems to be a new trend toward adjustable mascara wands where you twist the wand head to twist the wand. In fact, I wrote about a similar mascara wand about a month ago from Eddie Funkhouser (here). Well, Jesse’s Girl has just introduced their version: Dial-A-Lash Adjustable Control Mascara.
The wand is a thick wand with plastic teeth.
The handle has 4 settings that cause the wand and teeth to twist more with every setting and to pick up more mascara for more volume. It’s a neat idea, and twisting it does increase the amount of mascara that the wand picks up and applies to your lashes.
Unfortunately, I am not the right person for this particular mascara. As I’ve written many times in the past, I prefer skinny wands with small plastic teeth that are easy for me to maneuver around my downturned eyes. This wand is just too wide for me. I can’t use it at all on my lower lashes, and it’s hard for me to use on the inner and outer corners of my downturned eyes, boo hoo.
Secondly, it has a wet formula, and I prefer dry. I was hoping that it would dry out a bit after a couple of weeks, but it’s just as wet as when I first got it.
I feel bad bashing this mascara, but it’s just the opposite of what I personally look for in a mascara. On the other hand, it could be the perfect mascara for those of you who like a bigger wand that gives you control over how much of the wet mascara you apply.
When I do wear this mascara, it doesn’t flake and it lasts until I remove it.
Midnight Black 10 ml/0.33 fl. oz. Oddly enough, I can’t find Dial-A-Lash on the Jesse’s Girl website yet, so it must be a really new product. Keep your eyes peeled for it if your local Rite Aid or Long’s carries the brand. It should be in stores soon.
Jesse’s Girl Latex Free Blending Sponge
The second item I received was Jesse’s Girl Latex Free Blending Sponge.
I don’t think I have a problem with latex, but I know that a lot of people do. But whatever this latex free blending sponge is made out of I love it!!!
It is so soft, and so bouncy. I love the flat slanted slide.
It’s easy to clean with either Beauty Blender Solid Cleanser or baby shampoo. It dries quickly in my cute little sponge holder.
Jesse’s Girl Latex Free Blending Sponge has quickly become the sponge I reach for most often. I hope they’ll introduce a few different shapes because I love this one. $3.99 and it is listed on the Jesse’s Girl website.
Do either of these new Jesse’s Girl products appeal to you?
