Oooh shiny. The packaging of this stuff has been distracting me every morning. Ahem. Here we have the latest mascara offering from 17. This has been the blogger favourite du jour for the last couple of weeks and my review will be no exception. I love this mascara.
Now everyone wants something different from their mascara. Me? I want something that won’t drag out any curl I manage to bully my short, thick lashes into and something that won’t make them congeal in one great eyelash/ mascara clump. This does both jobs quite nicely. Below is a photo of naked lashes and after that one coat of Wild Curls.
I find it gives excellent definition to my lashes. One coast gives a subtle, natural look. Add another layer and the volume quickly builds up (though over 3 coats and it does start to become clumpy). It isn’t hugely lengthening on me but it is light enough not to drag down a curl. It’s a nice, deep, inky black and I believe there is a brown version too.
The wand is medium sized (smaller than BadGAL, bigger that Rimmel Sexy Curves) with varying sizes of criss crossed bristles. I really like the wand actually. I find it grabs all the itty bitty lashes in the corners and makes it easy to wiggle it through the lashes.
I love the effect this mascara gives me. It’s black, separates my lashes and not a clump in sight. It’s been holding up better against my watery hay fever eyes than my Sexy Curves has too, though it isn’t waterproof. I love the packaging too. Heck it’s just a good mascara. Unless you’re looking for crazy volume or lenth... then it might not be for you. All I know is that at £5.99 at Boots (with free gift at the moment I believe) I am far happier with this than I am with the Lancôme Virtuous that I paid nearly 4 times as much for. A rant about that particular mascara is on its way...
