You've probably read 10 million reviews on this mascara, and truth be told this review was supposed to go up months ago, but bare with me! I've read nothing but positive comments on this mascara, and yet I manage to find more negatives than positives. I first bought the miniature size back in February in the middle of the hype phase. It just didn't do what I wanted it to do and so being influenced by so many positive reviews, I bought another when they did a magazine offer in the hopes that the first one was a dud. I wish I'd have waited for the magazine offer the first time round as I've wasted double the amount of money I usually spend on my regular mascara.
Now I don't know whether I've just got the most un-cooperative eyelashes ever, or if this mascara really isn't worth the hype. I'll agree that it is one of the blackest mascaras I've tried and the brush is quite good for separating lashes. Other than that I hate it! The brush is also very rubber-ised and harsh on sensitive eyes, I cringed every time I went to apply it! I hate the 'ball' on the end of the brush as it unevenly deposits the mascara on the lower lashes. I find the formula quite flaky at times and it requires a lot of layering to achieve any kind of 'dramatic' look. Flaky + layers = an absolute nightmare, as many beauty bloggers will know.
In terms of achieving a 'false lash effect' I'd say no way! Is it worth £18.50? - no! I'll definitely be sticking to my all time fave, Maybelline Falsies from now on!
