I have great eyelashes. They`re long, dark, and very densely packed. You know how Elizabeth Taylor had double eyelashes? Mine kind of look like that. One time I was at lunch with a friend and she said apropos of nowhere, "You have really long eyelashes, stop batting them at me" and I was like, what the fuck? But it was great. It`s always nice when you`re having a bad skin day to think, well, fuck it, at least my lashes look good. But back to the review.
A few weeks ago I was heading out of town for a long overdue girls night and I wanted to give killer face. Big eyes, sweet cheeks, the whole nine yards. So I headed to CVS and got this Voluminous False Fiber Mascara along with a L`Oreal foundation. As soon as I got home I ripped open the packaging and swiped on a coat. I was kind of disappointed, and here`s why.
This is a fine basic mascara. With one coat it lengthens your lashes and adds a light curl. However, voluminous it is not. You get wispy length, and who wants that? In order to get the volume I wanted, I had to do one wiggly coat, let it dry, then lay the brush on top of my lashes, rotate outward, then clean up the clumps by brushing it through upwards (does that make sense? Ask me if it doesn`t and I`ll try to explain in better detail). I wanted a mascara that volumises without effort, like Clinique`s High Impact Mascara, and this not the one. It also took a lot of my eyelashes when I took it off, which is shitty.
Sooo...if you`re lazy, this mascara is not for you. If you have time to spend and know the right techniques to avoid clumps, you will do well with this. I`m going to buy another kind of mascara when I run out. I wouldn`t buy it again unless it was on sale for really cheap.
Nice dark pigment (I got mine in Blackest Black)
Won`t smudge through the party night (In my experience- I have not tried it through a sobfest movie or anything like that)
Tapered medium-sized wand (not a monster big one)
Takes time to build volume
Hard to remove (maybe not with a good eye makeup remover)
Clumps if you`re not careful with your application/technique
Check out my picture, the left eye has mascara and the right eye is bare NEKKID. And feel free to ask questions/comment!
