I can’t honestly say this is the best mascara I have ever used as it doesn’t give a thick coating and is not waterproof either which means that if I have any cream around under my eyes I end up with panda eyes as the mascara from my bottom lashes comes off onto my skin under my eyes. This is not the only mascara that I have this trouble with as my eye lashes seem to touch under my eyes, it often happens.
This does have some lovely ingredients to help condition your lashes such as Wheatgrass and various vitamins and minerals to really condition and nourish the lashes.
Then to help it set Lush has added both Japan and Carnauba wax . They happily say this will stop it from “ smudge all over your face if you’re caught in the rain or at the gym. “
Sorry Lush but that doesn’t stop it smudging under my eyes even without the rain
WOULD I RECOMMEND?
This costs £12 for 5g which is apparently a lot more than you usually get in a mascara so it last well but is far from being the cheapest mascara you can buy and it certainky doesn’t add volume or thickness or curl your lashes.
It is a natural looking mascara and I like to use it as I feel I am not damaging my very flimsy lashes with this. It comes off really easily with Lush’s ultrabland cleanser which I use as it is so gentle and really feeds my skin at the same time as removing my make up gently.
This mascara will not suit those who want a heavy dramatic look although some of the staff in Lush seem to manage this so it might just be me! It is nice to have a product that feeds and conditions your lashes as well as being a mascara and for that reason I will continue to use this.
Sometimes I put this on first then apply a heavier type of mascara on top as I think that way i am getting the conditioning and the darker thicker look as well.
I am really pleased with Lush’s ‘Emotional Brilliance’ range and am gradually buying products to suit my needs as i can afford them. This was my first purchase but it has not been my last .
