Hi beautiful people!! And happy Monday to all of you. I know, I’ve been a bit ghost, but as promised I will be up on my game bringing your wonderful posts beautiful fabulousness alllll week. As usual, we are going to kick off our week with a Mascara Monday. Today we will feature:
Prescriptives Beyond Long
Packaging (Brush Wand): 5 out of 5
Overall: 3 out of 5
What it claims: “Get lashes nothing short of spectacular. Beyond Long Maximum Length Mascara extends lashes up to 40% longer. A sleek wand wraps lashes in rich color instantly lengthening and separating each to create dramatic definition. It’s eye drama all the way, without a flake, clump, or smudge in sight…”
The truth: Well, it does length your lashes but it didn’t impress me too much.
What I loved about it: I absolutely adooooore the brush. Scroll back up and check out that picture. That is EXACTLY how it looks in person. It has nice and thin bristles and the end of the mascara wand is “squared” off so you don’t get that nasty clumpy bit of mascara juice on the end. Yall know what I’m talkin’ about, right? I loathe that. This is my ideal type of brush. But that is where the joy for this mascara ends for me. By itself, it isn’t anything spectacular. I noticed a bit of length in my lashes but nothing to jump up and down about. I tried using it with one of my favorite mascaras and if still was just “eh”….which is why I gave the mascara just an
“average” score. The packaging however is just gorgeous. The bottle is beautiful and has a nice soft grippy thing to help you with your overall application. Which I liked.
Would I purchase again?: Probably not. The price is a bit too steep for me for a mascara and it just didn’t do anything for me. But I’m not against trying Prescriptives mascaras again if I’m looking to blow some money. And is it sad that one of the reasons is because their tubes are so sexy? Haaaa!!
What do you think about this mascara? Have you tried it and liked it? How much is too much for a mscara? If you’ve sent me an email requesting a particular mascara to review, I haven’t forgotten about you. I have a looong list. Keep sendin’ me reviews at Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com
