My current mascara obsession is Lancome's Fatale mascara. It's definitely for those of you who want a thickening mascara. At night, I put on 4 layers; it looks like I have fake eyelashes on. The only drawback is that if you want until it's completely dry before you put on another coat, it has a tendency to flake off. I curl my lashes, and then smile when I'm applying mascara--I think it helps brush the wand in the most natural direction, while still curling my lashes. If you need help with lengthening and thickening lashes, apply a coat of Lancome's L'Extreme, followed by a coat of Fatale. Perfection, but recommended for evening's only.
