With a brush head shape inspired by the pistil of a flower, the new Petal Lash Mascara (CAN $29.00) from Shu Uemura (Summer 2014 Eye Event), looks nothing like the type of mascara I usually tend towards (the bushier-headed variety), but after just a few wearings, has earned itself a permanent place in my beauty arsenal. Created with a unique new formula that is meant to give curl as well as…

I don’t know about you, but mascara is the one beauty product I can’t be without (with blush coming in a close second), and while I’ve always tended to lean towards the higher end brands for my lashes, I’m open to trying others as well. After all, you never know when you’ll fall upon THE ONE. L’Oréal’s Voluminous™ mascara has been getting high marks from users since its launch years ago, and…
