I have been sent some fabulous mascaras for my honest review and I am so excited to share them with you!
Flower is the new beauty line by Drew Barrymore. The brand’s philosophy is that you no longer have to spend a lot of money to get the quality cosmetics you want and deserve. Where other beauty brands spend a vast percentage of the cost of their products on ads, they do not. Drew, as an owner of the brand, takes pride in promoting Flower, which in turn allows the company to put all of their resources into the formulas and packaging, and not into advertising.
The first item I have tried from Flower is the Lash Knockout Volumizing Mascara ($6.98 USD). The claims for this mascara is it will:
- Lengthen and nourish lashes with Red Seaweed for elasticity
- Shiny Polymers add shine, luster and condition
- Vegetal Polymers provide easy application and superb adherence for all-day wear
What I think: This is a great thickening mascara for a fab price! The brush has plush, closely placed bristles that impart a nice, thick coat of mascara. If you like volumizing mascara, this is a good one to try. Available at Walmart and Walmart.com.
L’Oreal introduces liquid extensions in a bottle, with Telescopic Shocking Extensions mascara ($8.49 USD), a new generation of lash length. In one motion lashes are separated, intensified, and look shockingly lengthened for an
intense make-up result.
What I think: This plastic bristle brush really lengthens lashes, and separates as well. If that is the look that you like, I really recommend this mascara. It is easily available at drugstores and mass market retailers near you.
Mineral Fusion Lengthening Mascara ($14.99 USD) This is a natural mineral mascara. Minerals apply smoothly to darken and lengthen for beautifully defined lashes. Naturally nourishes and protects to promote maximum lash health and fullness. Gentle, non-irritating formula applies easily, without clumping, flaking or smudging. Free of Gluten, Parabens, Artificial Colors, Fragrances and Talc. Never-tested on animals. Hypo-allergenic.
What I think: If you like a natural look, this will give that to you with natural ingredients. I know that some ladies don’t like huge lashes and this will give a softer look. Available at www.mineralfusion.com
NEW Mally Instant Impact Mascara takes lashes to great lengths with a six-ball applicator that distributes mascara evenly to each lash–every one of them will look longer and fuller than ever before!
What I think: This is my favorite mascara at the moment. It gives HUGE volume and length. The only thing is that the product tends to collect at the base of the last ball, so be careful when you take it out of the tube. I wipe it off with a tissue and go to town on my lashes. Great for night looks or for the ladies who like drama every day!
This is now only available in a kit at www.qvc.com called Mally 7-piece Makeup Makeover Collection for $72.50 USD. Hopefully it will be available by itself soon!
Ellis Faas Mascara ($34 USD)A creamy mascara that perfectly coats, lengthens and separates each individual lash. This mascara is ideal for creating customized looks. In one coat, it accentuates your lashes with subtlety; additional coats frame your eyes with lush, more dramatic effect.
What I think: I am loving the versatility of this mascara. One coat gives you very long and separated lashes. A couple more coats provides volume as well. Plus, it comes in a very cool bullet container.
