What is it?
A top selling mascara that promises to lengthen, curl, volumise, lift AND separate.
I am a complete ‘drugstore’ mascara kind of girl and never ever felt the need to fork out on high end mascaras. There are some brilliant cheaper ones out there particularly from Maybelline and L’oreal.
I decided to try this one only because of the hype surrounding it and the fact that my boyfriend convinced me to treat myself!
All I can say is WOW. I am so glad I bought this mascara.
The claims made by Benefit were big ones and this mascara had a lot to live up to but in my eyes (see what I did there…) it certainly did just that.
The brush is an absolute delight to use and separates lashes perfectly with hardly a clump in sight and there’s the added bonus on the spikey end to get even the tiniest corner lashes.
When I’m wearing this my lashes look amazing and I always get compliments. I also love the fact that unlike other mascaras that give a good dark look, this doesn’t clump and look really spidery and fake.
The formula is long lasting, gorgeously deep, stays on all day and doesn’t smudge – perfection!
The only thing I will say about this product is that it stays so well that it is more difficult than most other mascaras (even waterproof ones) to take off.
However, if you have an issue with finding most mascaras smudge on you then this could be a good one, and of course knowing that its going to stay looking fresh all day is no bad thing!
Worth the Money?
This is a pricey product – it’s £18.50 for a tube and to me it’s worth it as I have a good set of dark lashes but they’re fairly straight and I would like them to be longer. If your lashes are a key feature or something you feel is lacking then this is perfect. This will certainly be a repurchase for me!
This product is available from Benefit free standing stores, counters at some department stores such as Debenhams and of course, the official online website.
