Yay to the first mascara review of 2010! I had a wonderful experience with Neutrogena’s Healthy Volume mascara back in the day. Is Healthy Length just as good?
Overall: 4 out of 5
What it claims:“This breakthrough formula with rice protein instantly extends lashes, while nourishing and strengthening lashes to allow them to grow to their fullest potential.” (per packaging)
The truth: Hmm….not bad.
Overall: Well, Neutrogena has won my heart again! They simply come out with really good mascaras. And it’s so unexpected because when you think of mascara brands, you don’t necessarily think of Neutrogena. Let’s talk about the GREATs of this mascara.
It’s build-able: Some people really desire this in a mascara. While it’s not a must for me, I can appreciate the mascara that is such. Healthy Length will look just fine with one coat and it looks even better with 4 coats. Thanks to the great wand, you won’t experience any clumping.
It’s soft: This mascara just doesn’t feel heavy on the lashes. I love that! In fact, it almost feels like your natural lashes.
The packaging ain’t lyin': Look at this…
Isn’t that grand? I’ve seen SO many mascaras that claim to give you 100x your natural length. LOL…or 80% longer lashes. WTF does that mean? I don’t know. But thank you Neutrogena for keepin’ it real.
This baby did tend to flake a bit but I didn’t notice this until the end of the day and it wasn’t so bothersome that I had to remove it.
Until next time…..
A crazed mascara reviewer,
