Happy Monday! If you celebrate it, I hope that you all had a wonderful Resurrection Sunday! The dawn of Easter always REALLY reminds me that it is Spring time. And the weather here in Central Florida says just that.
Thank you ALL for your support and involvement in Clumps of Mascara’s Reader Appreciation Week. I know everyone couldn’t win something but it was exciting to see all of the entries and overall excitement in the giveaways. Yay!!
This mascara is one that has been requested several times. And I am just now getting to it. Yikes!! This post will be picture heavy because I wanted to show each detail of this groovy mascara. Is it really vivid or a bust?
(blue & pink)
Price: 4 out of 5 ($10 from Ulta.com )
Packaging (Brush Wand): 4 out of 5
Overall: 4 out of 5
What it claims: “Dual color mascara that combines a traditional solid color base coat with an iridescent highlighting top coat to add a hint of color to lashes. Delivers sophisticated, bold and unexpected eye looks.” (source)
The truth: Pink lashes? That’s unexpected alright!!
What I loved about it: I love the versatility of this mascara. You can create many different looks. Whether it be the pink highlighting top coat just on the tips, all over, or just on the lower lashes. Such fun!
What I didn’t like: For whatever reason, the mascara was a bit hard on the lashes.I mean….harder than most mascaras.
Overall: If you are lookin‘ for a mascara that will give you a “different” look or add a pop of color, this is it! I had so much fun playing around with mascara. I mean, think about it….pink lashes? How fun is that? As far as the performance of the mascara, I found that the blue basecoat gave me good volume. I’m talkin‘ Max Factor Volume Couture-kinda volume.
The pink highlighting top coat, however, isn’t the same consistency as the mascara. It is a little thinner than a creamy eyeshadow. It takes quite a few strokes to get the color ON the lashes. And even then…it may appear a little streaky at first. I would imagine the color would really POP on lighter lashes but since my babies are dark brown….it is a little hard to see the pink.
Check out the wands:
You can see the pink up close and personal. But what about outside?
So it really does work. I love how it looks with a purple eyeliner. Reader Sabrina was really the inspiration behind me finally purchasing and reviewing this mascara. Look at how beautiful the gold mascara looks with her pretty blue eyes!
Enjoy your Monday, family!
