I like the concept of Kaja Wink Lash Trio, but none of the formulas are standouts. While the formulas had minimal flaking, smudging, or transfer, my lashes fell flat at application and throughout the day.

Kaja Wink Lash Trio can give you multiple looks in one convenient product.
I know we’ve all been there, mixing two or three mascaras, plus a lash primer to get our desired look. Well, Kaja Beauty solved that by creating the Kaja Mascara Trio that features three products that magnetize together to for easy storage. It features a clear primer/brow gel, volumizing mascara, and a lengthening mascara for endless lash (and brow!) looks. Who doesn’t love convenience?! Multitasking products are increasingly popular in beauty over the last few years. Let’s see how this multitasking Kaja Wink Lash Mascara can do. (I’ve got to be honest, I’m a bit skeptical.)
Quick Rating Rundown
:Kaja Wink Lash Mascara Trio
Promises vs. Performance: Wink Lash Trio claims volume, length, and lift with its three formulas.
Wink Lash Trio from Kaja Beauty contains a volumizing, lengthening, and clear mascara formulas that can be layered together for customized looks or worn individually. The formulas include ingredients such as panthenol, which protects, conditions, and strengthens lashes, and biotin plus avocado peptides that help condition and enrich lashes. First, the clear formula can be used to prime lashes and set brows. Then, Kaja recommends layering the volumizing formula (peanut/hourglass shaped brush) to achieve bold, voluminous lashes. Third, the lengthening mascara (triangle shaped brush) lifts, curls, and separates lashes by coating lashes individually.
I applied this Kaja Mascara as suggested: first the clear formula, then volume, and lastly length. It felt awkward to apply the clear formula since I couldn’t see where it was going (most lash primers are white). Kaja doesn’t say to wait for it to get grippy before continuing with the next formula, so I went directly in with the volumizing formula. And, this is where we started falling flat. Literally. I had no volume and my lashes looked stick straight. Even after layering the third lengthening formula, my lashes still looked straight. I had no curl, no length, and no volume. I felt as if my lashes really became weighed down, especially because of the primer. Though, I was a bit impressed by the wear: I had very minimal flaking, transfer, and smudging. But for me personally it wasn’t enough to want to use this mascara again.
How It Compares: I don’t think Kaja Wink Lash Trio is worth $30.
On one hand, yes you get three different formulas for three different looks. But, on the other, $30 is a high price when none of the formulas are standouts. During my wear test, I layered the mascaras just as Kaja suggested (clear, volume, length) and felt that the primer especially weighted my lashes down. By the end, I had no lift and not a ton of volume. What I can appreciate about this mascara is the convenience of the packaging with all three clicking together, how black the pigment was, and that I had very minimal flaking, transfer, or smudging after a full day of wear. But, I will say: there’s a lot of users who swear by this mascara, and, as always, what doesn’t work for me might work wonderfully for you!
If Kaja didn’t work for you either, try this.
A mascara I can always count on is Lancome Lash Idole. I get volume, length, definition, separation, and lift. My lashes never fall flat and the formula lasts all day without flaking, smudging, or clumping. I get that intense black pigment in just one swipe, and I can layer the mascara for extra volume and length. It is my holy grail mascara that I compare all to because it is truly hard to beat with all the benefits for just $27.
ILIA Limitless Lash or Fullest Volumizing are great clean mascara formulas that provide length and volume. For long lashes, try Limitless Lash. If you like thick, bold lashes, Fullest Volumizing would be more up your alley.
But, truth be told, there’s some bomb drugstore mascara out there. A few of my favorites include Maybelline Lash Sensational (for an all-in-one), Covergirl Lash Blast Clean Volume (for volume), and Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect (for length, and being easy on the wallet).
Milabu Beauty Method: Customize your lash look.
- Prime lashes with the clear formula. I suggest applying as thin as possible, from root to tip. Kaja doesn’t say whether to wait a bit to apply the next mascara or go in directly after. I suggest waiting for it to get a bit tacky instead of being full wet.
- Now, take the volumizing formula and coat lashes from root to tip using a wiggly motion. Take your time working through your lashes ensuring to coat every lash.
- Either stop there or layer the lengthening formula over top. Apply in an upward motion almost as if you’re trying to curl your lashes. Kaja says this will give a flirty look!
- Once you’ve applied all the layers, curl the lashes gently. I felt as though these formulas, especially the primer, weighed down my lashes. If you’re in need of a good lash curler, check out Kevyn Aucoin’s ($21).
