This is the first ‘high-end’ mascara I’ve ever owned. Purely because everyone’s always told me that drugstore mascaras are plenty good enough. But, I saw this in Boots while I was there and thought I would give it a go, and I am so happy I have. This mascara is amazing.
The staggered bristles on the brush help to both comb through my lashes and grab every one and coat them in the product. The brush gets right to the tip of the lashes, helping to add volume and length. This is something some of my other mascaras I have claim to do, but it doesn’t always work. However, this mascara really does. The last thing to mention about the brush is the tip, it’s said to be a ‘precision tip’, and although it does help coat the smaller lashes that the brush doesn’t initially reach, the product tends to be a bit thick here and so this makes this part of the brush difficult to work with. However, overall, I love the brush to this mascara, which is amazing because it’s something I’m usually really picky with.
The product itself is a no-clumping formula, which, as long as your remember to ‘wiggle’ the brush as you apply it (which it does tell you to apply it that way on the packaging), this is very true. It both lengthens and thickens. It says online that it curls as you apply it, which I don’t see, however, if you curl with your eyelash curler first it does help keep the curl, so maybe that’s what they meant… although I doubt it.
The last point about this mascara is both a positive and a negative. This mascara is super long wearing, I found I get no fall out, it doesn’t smudge, or move, at all. And so, if I’m going out for a day and don’t want to worry at all about where my makeup is going, this is the mascara I use. However, it also makes it difficult to get off. You can, but you have to rub your eyelashes between your cotton pad (or whatever you use to get off your makeup) to get it to budge.
But overall, I love love love this mascara. It may be nearly £20!, which is more than I would normally pay for a mascara (and is one of the negatives (I think) of the product, because there are so many brilliant products for under £10). However, I think this mascara is amazing, and I am so happy I picked it up.
