Hello beauties! As some or you may know, I’ve been on the hunt for a mascara that doesn’t smudge that can pack a punch too. I was originally after one for my friends wedding. Can’t be a bridesmaid and have panda eyes!
Your favourite volumising mascara is now even better in a new waterproof formula. Featuring 12 hours of water, tear and humidity-proof wear; its innovative double-lush brush delivers twice the level of pigment, root to tip, in a name that says it all – Stay Black.
At first when I looked at the brush, I thought it wouldn’t give much volume. You don’t get much product on the wand when it comes out. I’m used to big brushed giving big volume. It gives great volume, but it doesn’t really give that full look, which is a little disappointing. The formula is quite dry so it doesn’t build well. When something is called ‘False Lash’ I’d expect to have a fuller look. What it is good at is separating your lashes, giving them lift, keeping the lift and it doesn’t clump. My lashes don’t look dry though which I usually expect from a dry formula. I’ve tried this out for about 3 weeks now and I haven’t had one smudge yet. That’s the only thing I was after with a mascara. But I miss my full look. It’s also a bugger to get off if you only have make up wipe, but I’ve been using Boots Botanics Micellar 3 in 1 Cleansing Solution to remove it and it’s working pretty well. It certainly doesn’t look like I have false eyelashes, but I also don’t look like a panda from smudging! Every cloud has a silver lining.
Will I buy this mascara again? I have another mascara to try out when this has dried up which promises no smudges and full volume. If that does smudge, then I probably will! Ahh the life of a beauty blogger, forever looking for that mascara that ticks all the boxes!
Have you tried this mascara? What are you using at the moment? Let me know!
