Another item I received as part of my October Topbox. Mascara is my favorite kind of makeup and is often the only thing I'll wear. Some are really great, some average and others just suck. I am always excited to try out a new mascara, looking for the one that will give my eyes the pop they deserve and making my lashes look fake.
I read a whole load of really great reviews online about this particular mascara and was psyched to try it out. It better be fantastic at $29 a tube. My lashes did look fuller and they did curl without the need for a curler. There was no foul odour (like some mascaras) and it was definitely waterproof. I put eyedrops in to see what would happen (after I got home from work, just in case!), and there were no streaks or streams running down my face.
However, I am only giving this mascara 3 stars because I got some serious racoon eyes by the afternoon. That's a big problem for me - I want to put my mascara on in the morning and still have it on my lashes by the time I get home, not migrating down my face.
So, although this mascara did nice things for my lashes, racoon eyes are a dealbreaker.
