Hi beautiful people! Excuse my silence this past weekend. I had a great amount of posts up my sleeve, but would you believe that I had zero internet service in my hotel room? The horror! No worries…I have lots of goodies this week, but fiiiiirst, it’s time for another edition of Mascara Monday.
Yesss, Mascara Monday is where we review a new mascara in attempts to find THE BEST MASCARA EVER!
Now here’s one that I haven’t heard many beauty bloggers talk about. L’Oreal HIP is most known for their eyeshadow color payoffs. But how does their mascara stand up?
You ready to find out?
L’Oreal HIP High Drama Volumizing mascara
Price: 2 out of 5
Packaging (Brush Wand): 2 out of 5
Overall: 2 out of 5
The truth: Well, it does give a little bit of drama, but not HIGH DRAMA. I wish that it could have given me a little length but nahhhh, not a lick of that. The consistency was pretty decent, it didn’t clump and noooo…..it certainly isn’t waterproof. But the black is really black; which I like!
What I loved about it: My lashes did look thicker and more prominent. And I love how it lasted throughout the entire work day.
What I didn’t like: It wasn’t enough. I was looking for HIGH drama, but I don’t feel that this mascara gave me that.
Overall: I don’t think this mascara is THAT bad. It definitely isn’t one of my favorites and I don’t think I would purchase it again. However, I’m thinking that this would be perfect when paired with one of my other HG (holy grail) mascaras; namely one that gets my lashes out there. The wand is just “eh”. Nothing innovative or fun about it. It’s not the best wand, but I’ve seen worse. It gave me decent control. You can snag this at most drugstores where L’Oreal HIP is sold. However, this baby runs at regularly priced at $9.99 which I think is a bit steep for a drugstore brand. Better BOGO this one. If you need a good volumizing mascara, check this one out….but only if its on sale.
What do you think about this mascara? Have you tried it and liked it?
