This is my first blog post written and posted from my new cell phone! I know I should have posted pictures taken with a real camera, but I just wanna try something else (aka, I’m too lazy to find my SD card…). Hopefully I will continue with posting from my cell phone, it’s so much easier to update more often if I can do it with my phone!
So, I got this mascara for review purposes, so here you’ll get my thoughts in short about this mascara!
I like how the product packaging and mascara bottle looks and feels, it look so fancy and cute! BUT, I usually don’t care about how packaging looks, and I actually hate things that are weird shaped because they are not very practical to take with you in a already tight and full makeup bag or stack up in your makeup collection. The little space I have is precious, and I would rather use that space for more makeup product - not fancy bottles! It would have been so much better if this mascara came in a simple bottle.
The mascara itself is very easy to apply, thanks to the good brush. The brush is smaller on the tip, which really makes it easy to get to the small inner lashes. This mascara doesn’t give much volume, but the brush separate each lashes nicely so all of your lashes will be more visible – like doll’s eyes! Luckily, this mascara dries quickly so applying a few more coats to get more volume is possible. And since it dries quickly, my eyelashes held the curls I made with my heated eyelash curler. The mascara doesn’t feel heavy on the lashes at all, bud sadly, at the end of the day I had more mascara under my eyes than on the lashes. In other words, this mascara smudges. I actually think that I’ve never worn a mascara that smudges as much as this one in my life!
And one more sad thing, this mascara is perfumed. I know a lot of people loves that their makeup smells nice, but I seriously think that perfume in cosmetics is very unnecessarily – it’s not like people are gonna smell on your eyelashes or that the scent are helping the mascara to give you nice looking lashes. And we’re already using a perfume, right? Anyways, if you’re on of those that appreciate perfumed mascaras; this mascara smells like old lady perfume.
I wouldn’t recommend this mascara since it smudges, I could have lived with the perfume smell. If it wasn’t for the smudging part, I would totally have used this for my under lashes since the tip of the brush is perfect for small and fine lashes and leaves no clumps at all. I can’t believe that a mascara that costs 275 NOK/ 45 USD can disappoint me this much. Spend your money on something else is my advice.
Have you tried this mascara? What is your experience with it?
And uh, since this post is lacking pictures… Here are two pictures of my face
