Happy Monday, fam! I hereby declare this week as “Week ‘O Reviews”! It’s been quite awhile since I’ve reviewed some products (the requested and the randomly snagged) so I have a lot in store for you beautiful people this week. But a Monday wouldn’t be a Monday without a Mascara Monday. This has been a crazy requested mascara. L’Oreal’s newest has been quite a buzz among cosmetic junkies. But is it worth it?
Price: 2 out of 5 ($10.00, kinda pricey for drugstore)
Packaging (Brush Wand): 2 out of 5
Overall: 3.5 out of 5
What it claims: “L’Oreal introduces New Double Extend Beauty Tubes Technology, a revolutionary lash extension effect mascara that provides up to 80% longer-looking, nourished lashes.”
The truth: Wowsers! It’s a Imju Fiberwig drugstore kinda mascara. Groovy!
What I loved about it: I did a ton of comparisons (in the video) between this mascara and Imju Fiberwig and one thing that I love BOTH about them is the way you wash it off. Simply wet your fingers, massage your lashes, and it’s off. Amazement, I tell ya!
What I didn’t like: I’m not a big fan of the wand. I really wish these mascaras with “fibers” had smaller wands. Granted it may make it a little messy but I feel like I could get better control if the wand was a little smaller….or no, wait—a 3D wand instead!
Overall: This mascara is seriously the cheaper version of Imju Fiberwig; except Fiberwig does not come with a primer. Oh yeah…and Fiberwig performs better. HA! What mascara hunters have to realize about about lengthening mascaras is….that’s really all they do. Lengthen. I have to keep reminding myself that because I’m a “volume, plush lashes” kinda gal. I would rather like my lashes to look full than be long. If you desire length, then I think you’ll like this. Although, I wasn’t a big fan of the primer. It didn’t really do much.
See, it’s just okay. I’m not crazy impressed with it. That side angle really makes me lashes look funky, uh? I should have tried the mascara without the primer to see how that worked. The good news is, I didn’t experience any smudging or flaking. Overall, I do give L’Oreal a thumbs up for coming out with a pretty cool mascara—it’s just wasn’t all that for moi.
Would I recommend it: If you’ve ever wanted to try Imju Fiberwig and didn’t want to spend $20+ on it, then I recommend this for you!
