Hands up, I confess. I’m an idiot. I bought a mascara because the bright shouty packaging caught my eye and I was in a rush without bothering to have a look at the wand. Had I spotted the wand prior to purchasing this I wouldn’t have bothered because I know that my little piggy eyes don’t play nicely with big wands.
I have this in 001 Black and it is a nice deep black formula. As if you couldn’t see that well enough on my lashes you can definitely see it on the surrounding skin... I am a disaster at applying this.
The formula itself is just ok. It doesn’t make my curl flop but it’s not the best at holding it either. It doesn’t smear or run but I have noticed a little bit of flaking. It isn’t clumpy but it doesn’t do a great job of separating. In short I’m not sure a smaller wand would have saved this for me. It just isn’t quite right for my lashes.
I should hasn’t to add that one woman’s poison is another woman’s holy grail. Mascara is a very personal thing and not everyone’s lashes behave the same way. I love the packaging of this, the product just isn’t right for me sadly. If big wands are more your thing (ooh er) this normally costs £6.99.
