April is always a crazy month with university classes ending and final exams starting, but the end of this term seemed extra hectic. I don’t know if it was all the group projects or the massive papers but it felt like April dragged on for far too long. Don’t get me wrong, I love what I am studying, but by the end of classes I am ready for a break and my exams went right until the second-to-last day of exam period. I have missed blogging and I am so happy to be getting back to it with a post about my new go-to mascara.
Way back in September 2016, I published a drug store haul post and this mascara was included. I put it in a box of products to try and unearthed it about a month ago, figuring I should give it a go. Well boy am I glad I did!!!
- New oil-infused liquid formula to define lashes
- Layer-Reveal brush with 10 bristle layers reaches all lashes
- Ophthalmologist-tested and safe for contact lense wearers
- Available in three shades: Blackest Black, Very Black, and Brownish Black
- Drugstore price tag
- Fun fact: This mascara was also the official mascara of London Fashion Week.
First of all, the brush is pretty darn skookum. The curved shape makes it possible to apply from root to tip and the bristle layers grab all the lashes and lengthen them.
The formula is also really smooth, glides on well, and it can be layered. Plus, it feels really leightweight on my eyelashes. Over the course of the day, it does not smudge, flake, or transfer to my undereyes, not even if I accidentally forget to take my makeup off at night and end up sleeping with it on. It still looks just as good the next day. I wouldn’t recommend that, but it’s a good test of how durable the product is.
The only negative comment I have about this mascara is that it is extremely hard to remove completely. I typically use Clinique’s Take the Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes, and Lips, and maybe another remover works better, but I find I can only get the surface product off, and I wake up the next morning with goopy remnants on my lashes that crumble off throughout the following day. Even using more remover does not seem to do much. Let me know in the comments if any of you have used this mascara and have a great technique for getting it off because it makes my lashes look amazing and I want to keep using it.
The jury is still out regarding whether this mascara has overtaken Clinique’s High Impact Mascara as my favourite mascara, but it is definitely a good contender for that title in my makeup bag.
Have you tried this product before??? What did you think of it???
