Mascara Monday: Prescriptives Beyond Long

Hi beautiful people!! And happy Monday to all of you. I know, I’ve been a bit ghost, but as promised I will be up on my game bringing your wonderful posts beautiful fabulousness alllll week. As usual, we are going to kick off our week with a Mascara Monday. Today we will feature:

Prescriptives Beyond Long

Price: 2 out of 5 (I got it for $19.50 at Macy’s in International Mall in Tampa Bay)

Packaging (Brush Wand): 5 out of 5

Overall: 3 out of 5

What it claims: “Get lashes nothing short of spectacular. Beyond Long Maximum Length Mascara extends lashes up to 40% longer. A sleek wand wraps lashes in rich color instantly lengthening and separating each to create dramatic definition. It’s eye drama all the way, without a flake, clump, or smudge in sight…”

The truth: Well, it does length your lashes but it didn’t impress me too much.

What I loved about it: I absolutely adooooore the brush. Scroll back up and check out that picture. That is EXACTLY how it looks in person. It has nice and thin bristles and the end of the mascara wand is “squared” off so you don’t get that nasty clumpy bit of mascara juice on the end. Yall know what I’m talkin’ about, right? I loathe that. This is my ideal type of brush. But that is where the joy for this mascara ends for me. By itself, it isn’t anything spectacular. I noticed a bit of length in my lashes but nothing to jump up and down about. I tried using it with one of my favorite mascaras and if still was just “eh”….which is why I gave the mascara just an
“average” score. The packaging however is just gorgeous. The bottle is beautiful and has a nice soft grippy thing to help you with your overall application. Which I liked.

Would I purchase again?: Probably not. The price is a bit too steep for me for a mascara and it just didn’t do anything for me. But I’m not against trying Prescriptives mascaras again if I’m looking to blow some money. And is it sad that one of the reasons is because their tubes are so sexy? Haaaa!!

What do you think about this mascara? Have you tried it and liked it? How much is too much for a mscara? If you’ve sent me an email requesting a particular mascara to review, I haven’t forgotten about you. I have a looong list. Keep sendin’ me reviews at

Stay beautiful!

    i think my limit on mascara is about $10-$20. But only if it does a phenomenal job.
    I have long lashes already so what I am always really looking for is volume and separation. length is an added bonus of course.
    would you be able to recommend any in particular?

    I loove mascara mondays. Lately I’ve been investing less than 10 in mascara because you have to replace it every 3 months..
    But you know me, I loove splurging…
    I want to splurge in the Imju mascara

    I’m iffy with mascara. I don’t put a price tag as long as it does what it claims. I live by my Too Faced Lash Injection which is $20 (I know) but that mascara is the ish and I don’t ever mind swiping my card for it.

    Other than Too Faced and Guerlain though…I don’t see a need for paying more than $10 for mascara.

    Glam–> $10-$20 sounds extremely reasonable. I have to agree with you on that. Volume? Hmm….I would have to recommend the Maybelline the Colossal Volum’ Express. I’ve been wearing that for weeks now and LOVE it!

    Anjela–> Ohhhhkaaaay. I’ll see what I can do, sis. *wink*

    Amina–> That Imju was seriously the best thing of my life. Too bad it is starting to dry out a bit. Guess I’ll need to purchase some more. But not anytime soon. HA!

    PJD–> I got cha…just like you always got me.

    FD–> Hmmm….I’ve been hearing so many wonderful things about Too Faced. I am definitely going to have to check that out.

    I remember receiving this in a gift bag and I am glad that I didn’t pay for it. I remember being unimpressed by it. I have yet to find anything better than Maybelline’s Great Lash, but I still haven’t tried DiorShow…that will be the ultimate test against my favorite!

    The brush sounds nice! I hate that glob of mascara that settles at the tip of the brush. I will be skipping this one.
