Ohhh mascara... Always out searching endlessly for the perfect one and one that will not make my eyes water in pain (from certain ingredients).
My makeup collection is quite minimal as I try to use products on the more natural side. I have tried many mascaras only to end up disappointed by promises made on their descriptions. So for a long time I have been using Honest Beauty Truly Lush Mascara + Primer . Well since Jessica Alba launched Honest Beauty on September 2015. My makeup is actually mostly Honest Beauty. Their mascara has always worked very well. Double ended bushes that build really nice lashes.
I heard about By Terry's innovative 2 step twist mascara... and when Lydia Elise Millen tells you this product is GOOD, well you run out and get it.
Enriched with premium deep black pigments and natural protective oils like olive and avocado? Of course I also checked it out on EWG Skin Deep Data Base for their rating and By Terry mascaras tend to stay between 4-5. I picked up the last one in stock at Nordstrom that day. Could this Lash Expert Twist Brush Mascara really be so different?
It was time to try it out. I did the first coat, then the second and proceeded to twist the brush. That's when the magic happened. There's so many ways to apply this mascara and I suggest you play around with the brush and see what technique works best for your lashes.
I do have a couple tips. Don't pump this mascara as you will only push up a lot of product, waste it and end up with a clumpy awful mess. Slide the brush out gently and start your application. I do suggest waiting a few seconds before you move on to your next coat. Lightly apply as I don't think it is necessary to apply it in a savage manner... I mean I have seen people do that.
I kept my over all makeup very simple to focus on the lashes.
I think I'll keep this mascara!
I hope this helps if you are looking to try this product! You can definitely say I am very sensitive to most conventional products and I have not had a problem with this product. And I am so very very glad!

Honestly I was hoping I would perhaps get to see what Native American group I am from. Apparently, thats just not how it works lol. In fact my results ended up being pretty broad but fun and surprising none the less. As I opened the results to see what in the world I could possibly be other than Mexican and maybe French, I was quite surprised to see Asian. I was possibly too excited for some people, as the nasty comments started to come in. Right, I deleted those. Ain't nobody got time for that.
I was truly, pleasantly, surprised! No one in my family could have imagined. There's not much we have to go off of. There is no great grandmother or great grandfather to ask. Nor is there a grandfather, or even a biological father. My grandmother lost both of her parents at the age of 5 and while I could go on and make this story even more complicated, like I said in the video above, lets just say I didn't have 100% information about exactly what I was.
When the time comes I will be trying other services just to compare and get the most out of what I can possibly discover with these exciting DNA tests.
23andme was very enriching. I would definitely recommend it. I believe it also happens to be the most budget friendly! And you know what, there is other bits of fun information I didn't mention in the video like, 23andme connecting me to over 1,000 DNA relatives around the world! Insane. Ofcourse this is something you can opt out of, but I left my profile public allowing DNA relatives to request my information. Also finding that 74% of my DNA relatives are more likely to drink coffee!? I'm a known coffee addict, I see it's in our blood lol. In the future I want to upgrade to the health part of the results, and that's a whole other very exciting part of 23andme.
I realize now that I HAVE to order a kit for my mom! and hopefully convince my grandmother to do it and therefore find just a few more answers for my very curious little mind.
I hope you found this helpful, and I wish you the best of luck with your results if you plan to take the DNA test for yourself! And remember that we're all human and most of us will find that we are the world. Part of all nations, part of the human race. Unless you're part alien...
