Back in 2003, I was introduced to a boutique cosmetics brand out of Philadelphia, called Scarlett Cosmetics. The brand was cute, and unique, and I knew the creator, Scarlett Messina, would accomplish great things.
Recently, Scarlett resurfaced We lost touch for a while, but recently I heard from Scarlett. She suggested I try her hot, new product called Tantric Mascara $18.00, which she bills as the “world’s first sex-proof mascara.” That opened my eyes, literally, as well as figuratively!
Scarlett Messina creates innovative makeup, so when she realized that her mascara was running and smudging during her hot, yoga classes (and I mean “thermally” hot), she decided that she could do all active women a favor, and create a new mascara that would banish “raccoon eyes”. Tantric mascara has “tubes” that adhere to your lashes and stay until you wash it off (with traditional makeup remover, or just soap and water, and a little bit of “friction”).
What makes it so different is that it isn’t made with fibers that can drop off and irritate sensitive eyes (like mine), and contact lens wearers. If you need long lasting mascara but hate removing it, you’ll love the fact that this mascara can be removed without smudging your face into a caricature of Gene Simons. The thin mascara wand looks ordinary, but it quickly covered every single little hair, even the ones I usually just forget about because they’re hard to deal with. And there were no clumps with a second coat that made lashes much more dramatic. The mascara is black, and fragrance free. By the way, Scarlett tells me that Vogue secretly tested Tantric at Fashion Week in NYC and makeup artists raved about it. So it’s not just me that thinks an $18.00 mascara is well worth the cost.
Whether you’re sweatin’ to the oldies, or at Bikram Yoga, or somewhere much sexier, this mascara won’t let you down. Now that you know about this “hot” new mascara, go to the Scarlett Cosmetics Web Site and get it before the secret gets out!
