I’m finally back from NYC. The next few Mascara Mondays will be relatively good ones. I just recently trashed 5-6 mascaras. All of them had their reasons. Some I wanted to turn in for Back 2 MAC (bring in 6 empty containers and get a free lipstick or eye shadow…fab!), others were on the 6-7 month mark and the ones left were ones that were just taking up space in the traincase. Sooo, I impulsively purchased 5 new mascaras in attempts to find….
Yep, it’s kind of a big deal..especially when your lashes are poo-butts like mine.
[NEWBIE SIDENOTE]: Good mascaras can be found anywhere. Don’t think let companies fool you into thinking that their $36 mascara is better than a drugstore brand.
Okay, so let’s introduce the first mascara up for review. This baby is no newbie to the mascara world. In fact, she holds a title as being one of the best mascaras. Allure magazine loves her, celebrities love her and many people just assume that this is the holy grail of mascaras.
I know, I know….this chick has been out for a quick little minute and I’ve actually owned her once or twice years ago. But I’ve learned A LOT since then as far as mascara technique and wanted to give her another chance.
Price: 5 out of 5
Packaging (Brush Wand): 5 out of 5
Overall: 5 out of 5
What it claims: “Lash Building Formula builds even the tiniest lashes and the lash Building Brush makes lashes fuller and longer with no clumps or globs.”
The truth: I have to admit that everything it says it will do, it does! I think that this mascara is deserving of all of its awards and positive feedbacks!
What I loved about it: I loved how it lengthened my lashes. And even when applying more coats, it did not clump. And it’s waterproof!
What I didn’t like: It always made my eyes burn. Which is crazy because I don’t wear contacts or have sensitive eyes. When taking this off at night, I had to endure crazy burning.
Overall: I think that it is definitely a must have mascara…in addition to others, if you are a product junkie like me. Plus, it’s only $3.99 for two! Can’t beat that!
What do you think about this mascara? I’ve had several friends who actually really loathe it. But what works for one gal may not work for the other. Have you tried it and liked it?
