Product Review:

Mentioned on my 12 Wants Of Christmas this mascara made it to my lashes but not my shelf. However, there’s a 50/50 chance it might make it to yours. Make sure you specify which version you want as there are THREE; lengthening, volumizing, and waterproof.

The facts, this mascara has vitamin E and a blend of oils to keep lashes from drying out. With continued usage I haven’t had any of the typical mascara concerns like lash breakage or clumping. There are a great number of highlights to this product which include; solid black shade, non-irritating, non-flaking, non-smudging, but most importantly wear-ability, you can wear this from morning to late night. Now, the down side, mind you this was with the tube I USED. Claiming to have, “nylon fibers to extend eyelashes to almost faux proportions” was not seen. The formula was a bit dry for my taste, making slow application a must for even coverage. In my opinion my results were not a true “Doll Eye” or even volume adding. As a great basic mascara this product fits the bill. I was anticipating a real “wow” for an end result but this product fell short. I’m really torn about this one because I do like it as a basic mascara, but that is not what it promised. Plus, in my case I feel a price tag of $5 would be more appropriate considering its short comings.
