Curled Lashes, no mascara
Two Coats Voluminous Mascara
Normally, I am not one to use a black-brown mascara. To be honest I didn’t even realize this was one until after I applied it and thought it looked softer than normal mascaras look on me. My lashes are naturally fairly light- the picture above doesn’t show very well, but they kinda have a gradient, they are darker at the root and a light brown at the tips. I have to say I liked the way the black brown looked as an everyday mascara for me. I’m used to doing over the top makeup, and of course the darkest mascara possible is best for that, but this had a nice, im-wearing-mascara-but-not-over-the-top look to it.
As for the formula, I liked the curved brush because it made it easier to coat all the lashes easier. I wouldn’t say that this made my lashes 4x thicker, but It did soften them, so to speak- they didn’t feel crazy hard and unmoveable like some mascaras can leave the lashes, after the mascara dried it did feel like I could run the brush through again without creating spider lashes.
This retails around $7.30, but varies by location.
