This product comes in an unusual bottle with a stylish golden, raised wave down one side. It gives the packaging a distinctive look. The brush has bristles of varying lengths to enable close application to the base of lashes and separating strokes with longer lengths. At first I wasn't sure how I would get on with it, but actually I found that I was able to get a much better finish on my lower lashes than I have with other brushes I have used, and my top lashes were able to be 'styled' with the longer bristles, to create a flattering look. I first thought that the brown would be too light for my needs, but it is quite dark and gives a good definition to the eye area, without harshness. The mascara lasted well, with minimum crumbling over the course of the day, and the lashes still looked well coated when I came to cleanse the lashes in the evening. The product was easily removed without too much rubbing with just one pad needed to completely cleanse each eye.
My wife tried this one for me and you can see the pictures of her with the mascara on (I did do some before and after comparisons which I'll put on a blog). Of the three pictures the first two have the mascara and the last one doesn't so that you can see the difference.
She really liked this product (she normally uses a Chanel one) and found it easy to use and it worked well. You can see that the colour is subtle but well suited to her eye colour. It doesn't clump and it's easy to remove. There was a little bit of flecking on application but nothing unexpected. A good price and a good product.
Gives well defined longer, individual lashes, but still with a very natural look due to the neutral brown tone. Easy to use, with just one application needed and no clumps. Lasted all day with no flaking, smudging and didn't feel uncomfortable. Packaging looks classy and sleek. Although I received mine as a complimentary tester, I would definitely consider it to be value for money at the price indicated as it compares to more expensive mascaras I've tried.
Liner effect is subtle, but can be enhanced with careful closer application at the lash roots, which is easy with the short bristles on the brush. Not for those who want a doll eye effect or more exaggerated lashes, however I'd be interested to try the black version to see if a deeper colour provided more effect. Does take quite a bit to remove, almost as if it was waterproof.
A really good everyday mascara that provides a quick natural enhanced look to eyes in one simple application. I've been using during the day without the need for additional eyeliner or eye shadow and have been more than happy with the look this mascara gives.
I don't normally go for brown mascaras but was really surprised with how it made my eyelashes stand out but still with a natural effect!
The brush is really usefull and effective at creating a liner effect as well lengthening and defining lashes. It's really easy to use, long lasting and great value for money. I really like the packaging too.
Overall, I love the brush - it's so effective and easy to use, creating an effortless liner effect and lengthening and defining without clumping! The shade of brown creates a natural effect but still makes lashes stand out! My lashes kept their shape and definition throughout the day so no re-application needed.
