If you’re a regular reader of Spoiled Pretty, you’re pretty familiar with my escapades. You know that I’m not a morning person, and I often go to work without a stitch of makeup. I relish my extra 10 minutes of sleep so much that I will endure a day’s worth of embarrassment, without regret.

But last week, I should have been ashamed of myself. One morning during my commute, I caught a glimpse of my reflection in the bus window. And let me tell you…it was a serious case of shock and awe. I won’t get into the specifics – but let’s just say that despite the lack of available seats that day, the one next to me remained empty for my entire trip.

The bus was only five or so blocks from my stop, so I smoothed my hair as best I could and furiously burrowed in my bag – looking for some miracle product to salvage my grave facial situation. I pulled Too Faced Lash Injection from my handbag and prayed for the best, as this mascara was a sample that I had yet to try. As the bus quickly neared my destination (why is it that the commute goes faster when you’re stalling for time?), I haphazardly swiped on Lash Injection without a mirror – closing the cap and re-depositing in my purse just as the bus doors opened at my stop.

Once inside my office building, I fell into my usual routine: rode the elevator to my 2nd floor office, booted up my laptop, logged onto my work email account, and checked my voicemail. By the time I finished doing all of the above, I became so engrossed in work that I had forgotten all about my scary hair and pallid complexion. But then, something strange happened.

Four co-workers, passing by my office, stopped in to compliment me on my mascara. Now, I dunno if it’s because I rarely wear mascara to work. Or if, despite sloppy application, Lash Injection delivers “the look of lash extensions.” Whatever the reason, I’m a sucker for compliments – so I may just start waking up a minute or two early so that I have time to apply Lash Injection before leaving the house. Imagine the response when it’s carefully applied!

Too Faced Lash Injection is available at Sephora, Douglas, Nordstrom, and at toofaced.com.

    This mascara is one of my faves. I have probably a dozen different mascaras but I have this one in black and blue and I love it!

    This is one of my favorites also, if it wasnt for the price, I think this would be my number 1 choice. Another great mascara that delivers similar results is MAC Plush Lash, major volume, which we all search for!!

    I love Lash Injection. I too got this as a sample, and only used it when I ran out of my regular mascara. I have been hooked ever since! They make my scrawny, sad lashes look like I have on extensions; its just amazing. I went right to Sephora during my lunch and brought 2 tubes.

    I love most Too Faced
    products…but have
    never tried this mascara.
    Probably because I’m a
    slave to Diorshow…but
    I’m always up for the
    look of making my
    lashes look longerrr.

    Love your blog! I have to disagree with this one, though. I originally bought lash injection because I thought it did the same thing: lengthen my lashes. I have short, thick, curly lashes, so I’m always looking to lengthen them. It was not until I tried two other mascaras–Armani’s Maestro and Diorshow’s Blackout–that I realized that I could do better, without sacrificing much on price. It’s not bad, but there are better, in my opinion.
