Throw away mascaras

12 Jul

Laura Mercier full blown volume lash building mascara. Thumbs down. This is a sample size from Birchbox that I tried and wanted to like, but it didn’t deliver volume or curl. The formula did feel nice, no flaking and wasn’t hard to wash off.

Kiehl’s marvelous mineral mascara with jojoba oil and acacia senegal. I loved this mascara when it was fresh and new, but it didn’t last long and once it started to dry out it didn’t pull its weight any more. This is a gentle formula, medium volume, added a some length, a little smudging by the time I was getting ready for bed at the end of the day, and no irritation when I washed it off.

The third one that I’m throwing away is by Nanacoco. Scandalous waterproof mascara, which I received in a Beauty Box 5 subscription. Not much volume, no length, no curl added. It had good staying power, though it was a little tough to wash off, my eyelashes did not like this very much.
