La Femme Cake Mascara

  • Description

La Femme is the iconic makeup manufacturer founded in 1950, and originally located on the famous Hollywood Sunset Boulevard.  Offering a complete array of luxury cosmetics at the time, La Femme became the much loved and trusted makeup company supplier to film, TV and fashion makeup artists, as well as a favorite among Hollywood celebrities.  For over 65 years La Femme has been famous for their products and color selection, some of which are industry legends and still available today.

La Femme Cake Mascara was originally designed for the professional makeup artist and the demanding film, television, and fashion industries.   Dark and defined lashes were a must in the early days of film and TV, and leading actors always used cake mascara, even under the hot lights of those production sets. The cake applied mascara always stayed in place and resisted smudging, so it's no wonder it's a classic product still loved today.  Over the decades, g
enerations of women, professional makeup artists, and movie stars, such as Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Catherine Deneuve, Sophie Marceau, and Catherine Zeta-Jones to name a few have always remained loyal to cake mascara because of the beautiful, darkened and defined full lash results in their camera work.

Cake mascara keeps you free from messy clumps, gloppy smears, flakes or spikes in the application the way tube and wand mascara sometimes does, especially when the tube starts to dry out.  You can easily layer cake mascara to build lash length and volume with excellent results, and it can mimic a nearly no-makeup effect to produce naturally looking darker fuller lashes.  The quick drying formula holds a curl well too.  It’s outstanding to use as smooth and long wearing eyeliner because of the intense dark pigmentation that won’t fade or flake off.  It can even be used as a subtle brow tint, or filling in sparse areas around dark hairlines, mustaches, beards, sideburns, etc.  Makeup artists love to use it to help blend natural lashes into a false lash application for a seamless full volume look, and it’s great to use for men to barely tint their lashes to define color without building any obvious texture.

This cake mascara comes complete in a 4.5” mirrored compact and two spoolie mascara brushes.  All you add is water or a liquid waterproofing medium, such as Graftobian Mixing and Lining Liquid, MM-1034.  You can use a Disposable Mascara Wand, PPS-0049 or the pro makeup artist's favorite, Mascara Fan Brush, PPS-0163, which delivers a perfect build for natural looking resultsPlace a drop of water or liquid waterproofing medium on the cake and let it sit momentarily to soften the cake and absorb some of the liquid.  Then dampen the brush or mascara wand and mix on the cake to moisten and work up the color and apply to pre-curled lashes.  Apply the mascara coat slowly, right to the base and upwards to the very tips, to darken and define the length of lashes the way the pros do.  Then add another coat to add volume.  Use a Lash Grooming Comb, PPS-0016, to help separate the lashes between coats to prevent any clumping if you need to.  Another great tool is the Myrabelle Mascara Shield, PPS-0320, to eliminate any accidental dings around and under the eyes.

Cake mascara will never spoil like tube and wand mascaras, and will save you the cost of many tubes over the lifetime of a single cake of mascara!  It’s also perfect to use with false eyelashes and lash extensions, as it will naturally blend lashes for full and lush looking results.

Love it, But Can't get Brown Anymore

- 02nd January 2019

I have been using this product for years, and brown is the perfect color for me. I use a dental brush cleaner, and it works fantastic for my short thin lashes. I am almost out of my brown cake, and I have been trying to get more for the past year, when a...

Great Mascara - But With a Learning Curve!

- 05th January 2018

This is definitely a great product, but you definitely have to practice with it first to understand how to get the results you want. I found that if you use a min-toothbrush like brush, it works the best for me. Also, you want a paste-like consistency, no...

Takes Time, But Worth It

- 26th November 2017

I like how I can control the coverage, but you have to be careful not to overly wet the cake too much or it will be watery instead of creamy. By making the mix a little thicker and the application a little lighter I can get the very natural looking, my-l...

I love it!

- 24th January 2015

I simply love this product! I have short and straight lashes, and I can get the consistency I like by using a mixing agent rather than water, because it's "heavier" if that makes sense. I use two drops to get a nice creamy result for both upper and lower ...

Works Great!

- 05th August 2014

I liked how this left my lashes feeling soft, not crunchy like you get with tube mascaras. I don't wear eye shadow so I use this for my lashes and eyeliner to bring out my eyes. I haven't mastered getting it on my lashes without a smudge or two on my lid,...
