Yeah. That black hole frustrates me and can make the mascara a little goopy. Don’t be like me and try to “investigate” the mascara and figure out how it works. Don’t pull out both wands at the same time. Just use it and move on, sista. I wasted a ton of mascara by trying to pull out the wands at the same time. That’s what I get for being nosy. 🙂
Just to make describing them easier, I’ve given the kids nicknames. Reppin’ for the purple wand, we’ve got Big Purp.
I had a few problems with this brush. It isn’t one of my favorites as I find that it collects a lot of mascara when you first take it out of the tube. Of course you can wipe the excess of the side but that’s an extra step that I hate making when applying mascara. But despite that…it actually delivers. And beautifully! Ladies with smaller lids and lashes will have to be careful as a wand this large may inevitably end up on your lower lash line. Small strokes and wiggling can alleviate this a bit. The good news is, one coat does the trick when you use this wand. Watch this.
Bonkers right? And then there’s the other wand that I nicknamed Pinky. Pinky’s wand is more up my alley.
That’s a little better. It isn’t as loaded up with mascara as Big Purp is. Buuuuut….Pinky’s flaw is that it is a wee bit flimsy. I find it harder to get control when using this wand. Not a big downer but for my newbie mascara users, Pinky may give you some issues. All in all, it still delivers in terms of how it looks on the lashes.
But there is a downfall. I find that the mascara is a wee bit flaky. It removes similarly to a tubing mascara in that if you simply massage your lashes, it will start to flake off on your fingertips. I don’t like when mascaras do this because the little particles always end up falling into my lashes. Especially while I’m doing things in which I can’t rub my eyes. Like driving. Womp!
