Instant Makeover: Mascara That Creates A Cat-Eye

Bold eye looks are huge this fall, and to join in on the fun, I am perfecting the cat-eye. But with less-than-stellar liquid eyeliner skills, I’m turning to mascara to get the job done. Maybelline Colossal Volum’ Express Cat Eyes Mascara ($7.47, drugstores in October 2012) has a wand specifically crafted for the trendy eye look. When normally I would have to be precise, picking which lashes needed more length, the wand is shaped like a claw so it did all of the work for me. The outer lashes are pulled farther, replicating the eyeliner sweep. However, since my lashes are pretty thin, I apply a second coat by angling the brush and sweeping outward, concentrating on the outer lashes. (You can do this with any mascara wand.)

What do you think of using mascara for an instant cat-eye?
