Marvelous Monday Makeup Friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I know I did. The hubs and I went fishing. This was the first time I have been fishing in I can’t tell you how many years and it had been quite a while for my man as well. We had a blast though. It made for some really great relaxing time for the two of us. I’ll tell you more about it and post some pics soon. Today, however, I know you are all only interested in the makeup so I’m going to give you what you came here for.
As part of my August BoxyCharm, I received this mascara. I like to try new types of mascara because as I have aged and my hormones have changed, my eyelashes have definitely thinned. I like to find something that makes them full and long without weighing them down or being to clunky on my eyes.
This formula felt nice going on. I really liked the brush. The shape was nice to enhance each individual lash. The formula was not too thin or too thick. It was very nice going on.
You can see on the left picture above, I had one eye with mascara and one eye without. It was very obvious that this mascara helped. The other pic included my bottom lashes. I did like how it coated those lashes without too much clumping.
This was one day that I was able to do a beautiful complete eye look. I was really happy with it.
Now for the downside, by the end of the day, EVERY day, this mascara has flaked off of my lashes. I have little clumps of mascara under my eyes and all the way down my face. I wear glasses so I don’t rub my eyes throughout the day, I try to just leave them alone. This mascara seemed to dry out so much throughout the day that I couldn’t really bring myself to get behind it. I have continued to use it and I will use it until it’s gone or another 5 months whichever comes sooner because well, it’s expensive mascara and I like to use what I have. I will tell you however, this is one of those much better suited for a night out than a full day of makeup.
As mentioned this mascara with a $23 price point is definitely a more expense mascara than I would just try on my own. I am always so glad for my subscription box because it does allow me to try higher end items without paying as much for them.
Overall, I am going to give this a 💄💄💄 out of 5. It has some fine qualities but it is also lacking in some areas. With a cost of almost twice as much as most mascara out there that works really well. I just can’t go over that score.
Love and ,
