It’s Monday again, pretty people!! How was your weekend? Did you get in some much needed sleep? Check out “Lakeview Terrace” with my God-daddy Samuel L. Jackson? Hit up a hot club? Visit your favorite restaurant? Well, I hope that whatever you did was wonderful because we are back to another looooong week.
This mascara is reader requested and I was excited to test and review it around this time since this line is fairly new to Target.
Price: 3 out of 5 (ohmigooodness, $15?! Yikes!)
Packaging (Brush Wand): 5 out of 5
Overall: 3 out of 5
What it claims: “Make way for the runway. A mascara that thickens, lengthens and curls lashes with professional results.”
The truth: It’s definitely not the BEST mascara that I’ve ever used….but then it isn’t the worst either.
What I loved about it: The wand is pretty coolio. I mean, granted it is you average and ordinary wand but I always love wands like these—they do a fantastic job at covering each lash with ease.
What I didn’t like: It didn’t really do anything for me. I mean…at all.
Overall: Well, I don’t know. For a $15 mascara I really expected more. I have defintely had better results with Maybelline, L’Oreal and other cosmetic company mascaras that retail for cheaper prices. I did not experience any clumping and flaking and that is always a plus but it was just such a “blah” mascara. I wanted some POW….BAM…..a WOW factor, or something. A sista got nothing and that was a little disheartening. The good news is Napoleon Perdis has a ton of other mascaras that I would be inclined to try if the price wasn’t so steep.
Would I recommend it: I would not. I can’t think of any situation in which I would re-purchase (or even use the current tube I have) this mascara.
Didn’t get around to doing a video for this baby due to my travels this weekend….but tell me what you think. Target, apparently is adding some “higher-end” brands to their cosmetics department. I don’t really know who the target (haha) consumers are considering most folx I know only purchase relatively cheap buys from Target stores and this line is anything BUT that. Check out the website for yourself.
Nevertheless, I urge you chicas to check out this and other new lines as your nearest Target. It’s rather interesting to see such a higher-end brand display at Target. It really does seem like something that should be at Sephora, Ulta or a department store. Has anyone seen this at their Target? Or tried any of Napoleon Perdis’ other products?
Let me knowww!! And enjoy your Monday and upcoming week, beautiful people!
