I am a major mascara junkie. In my opinion, no single cosmetic makes you look more feminine or more awake (which is a frequent problem for me). So when I started to get wind of the new semi-permanent mascara options and read rave reviews from other beauty editors, I was excited when a company offered to let me try a treatment.
I tried CryBaby, a salon treatment which just launched nationwide and costs around $40. It lasts about two weeks, unlike some other semi-perm mascara options--LashDip lasts six weeks with a touch-up in the middle. I liked that it is a relatively short term commitment.
