A mascara is my instant go to when I opt for a natural look or a no make up look. It gives an edge and some drama to the eyes and instantly opens up my otherwise short and thin lashes. Mascara takes the lashes to the heights of big drama, lift and look-at-me volume. I have been looking out to buy a mascara for quite some time now and looks like finally I have found one.
“Lashes: Big and Bold” is my motto when I go looking for a mascara.
The mascara comes in a cute packaging that any girl would fall in love with. The product claims “Dare to get the push-up effect! This creamy, plumping formula delivers instant volume and holds the curl in place while the Push Up Cup Brush scoops and lifts from root to tip. Lashes look lengthened for a dramatic eye look. Ophthalmologist tested. Suitable for contact lens wearers.”
It comes with a fairly basic straight line applicator that has sharp spiky bristles, more or less like a comb. It strokes through quickly and easily without smearing on my upper or lower lash line. The formula sets to a nice soft finish and I don’t feel my lashes were stiff or crunchy at all. Neither do I have any issues with flaking, smearing or smudging till now!
The pigmentation of the mascara is quite intense, giving that perfect jet black color. In terms of texture, it is slightly on the thicker and creamy side. The mascara is volumizing and also lifts up the lashes. The applicator wand helps to apply mascara easily on the lower eyelashes as well. It gives nice curling effect to the eyelashes even without using an eyelash curler. Two to three coats are good enough to give that dramatic effect to the eyes.
The lasting power of this mascara is around 6-7 hours, which is again great! However, removing the mascara is slightly difficult as it is a waterproof variant I use, but using a good eye makeup remover with an oil-based formula make the removal part easier and mess free. Also, one can always go for the non waterproof formula.
