  • ARDENCY INN PUNKER Unrivaled Volume & Curl Lash Wax
    sephora.com
    What it is: A revolutionary mascara formula inspired by ultra lightweight hairstyling pomades. What it does: Punker Lash Wax provides a ridiculous amount of volume to create the boldest, thickest lashes ever without weighing them down. Because this creamy wax-based formula does not dry or harden on lashes, it will never flake or create fallouts, even when multiple layers are applied. Thanks to a special curling resin, lashes have noticeably more curl after just one week of daily use. The slightly curved, oversized brush with flexible bristles is designed to coat the lashes with a maximum amount of wax, evenly and without clumps. What else you need to know: Made in France.
