Mascara Monday: Prescriptives Absolute Eyes False Eyelashes

| January 19, 2009 | 3 Comments

It’s another Monday and you know what that means…..*drum roll*. Another mascara review! I’ve been giving you lovely people the tidbits about the greatness (or lackthereof) of drugstore mascaras but I have been neglecting the higher end brands too. I know yall aren’t complaining because of these tough economic times. I love reviewing mascaras with dramatic claims. Prescriptives Absolute Eyes False Eyelashes set is just that. Will my lashes look “false”. Check the review…

Prescriptives Absolute Eyes
False Eyelashes set

Price: 3 out of 5 (the entire set is $30)
Packaging (Brush Wand): 2.5 out of 5
Overall: 4 out of 5

What it claims: ” All you need to make your eyes look amazing, featuring False Eyelashes Plush Mascara.”

The truth: Plush lashes? Yes! False lashes? Not so much.

What I loved about it:
It really did give me plush lashes!

What I didn’t like: The brush wasn’t the easiest to use. Look at this bad boy.


I didn’t know where to start. However, once I got the hang of it, it wasn’t so bad!

Overall: This is my second time reviewing a Prescriptives mascara. The first one was Beyond Long and I didn’t have the best experience with it. Needless to say, I didn’t have high hopes for Absolute Eyes False Eyelashes. Well, I must say—it won me over! I like the idea that the mascara comes in a cute little case with eye make-up remover. Tres cute!

The primer didn’t give me any issues. Add too many coats, however, and you will end up with clumps by the end of your first coat of mascara.

Lashes with NO mascara

(I curled my lashes prior to
mascara application)

You are to use the Lash builder primer first and follow it up with the mascara–obviously.

Lashes with TWO coats

Wow! I say it did a decent job in giving me dark, plus lashes. The length wasn’t so bad either. Due to curling my lashes before application, I ended up a really nice set of lashes. But false? Nahhh….not quite. But good? Yes!

Would I recommend it?: I do! It’s not a bad mascara and if you’re thinking that the price is a little steep, consider what you’re getting with it. $30-mascara, primer, make-up remover and little cute bag. Not too bad.

Due to my travels this week, I won’t be able to provide you lovely people with a video review this time around. Wipe your tears, though. I’ll be back next Monday!

Are you a fan of Prescriptives mascaras? What do you think?

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!!

Staying beautiful and remembering history,
