I LOVE THIS MASCARA!
June 8, 2018
Okay so this mascara is a damn good bargain. I bought the blue one and it's quickly become my favourite mascara and my daily go-to.
It's definitely much smaller (and cuter!) then a regular mascara, and it does feel a little weird using such a TINY wand, but it's got a great shape and it's really good at evenly distributing the mascara on your lashes without making them gluggy and spidery. I tend to go OTT on mascara without realising until it's too late with a normal sized mascara wands, so I love that this mascara wand is smaller and more controllable. It's also great for building layers - I can do a few swaipes of the brush for a normal daytime look or I can go full blast for a more dramatic nighttime look.
So, about it's smaller size - I figure it'll run out at around 3 months? I've been using it for 4-6 weeks now and it's still going strong, but this mascara pot is seriously tiny. However, I'm happy with the size as I believe mascaras aren't meant to be used for longer than 3/4 months as they then become unhygienic and get all dried out. I generally spend $15-$20 on a drugstore mascara that's bigger and lasts about 6 months, so I'm happy to spend half of that and receive half the product but have a fresh clean tube sooner. And as a bonus, I won't be worrying about my eyes getting a nasty infection from using an old mascara!
I wear contact lenses daily and generally have sensitive, watery eyes and haven't had any issues at all with irritation, flakiness or smudging either with this mascara.
I'm definitely going to buy this again. I'll probably buy 4 in one go so I'm set for the next year!
