This review is more than overdue since I got it the last week in Febuary, but at least you know I’ve had a lot of time to trial it huh! I got this mascara free with ELLE, which cost £3.50 but the mascara its self is worth £10, bargain! I have to admit I am a huge Soap & Glory fan as it is, so to get it for free was like heaven to me!
The packaging is much like most mascaras, but has the ‘vintage pink’ style font, the style Soap & Glory are know for. I love it because its quite a thin tube so it’s easy to store. I don’t have much storage space for my make-up so it is perfect.
There’s really nothing special about the applicator. It has quite dense bristles so it picks up a lot of product which is good. You can sometimes get excess product on the end of the applicator, but I’ve found that to be true of most mascaras I have tried. The formula of the mascara is quite thick, so it can coat your lashes in one go. I’m not a fan of overly ‘liquidy’ mascaras, so I love this consistency! It has become thicker since opening it, so it seems like it could be drying up. I’ve not had it alll that long have I? I remember being told a mascaras life-span is about 3 months, so surely it shouldn’t dry after 1? Hey ho!
Anyway, here are my lashes before I have used it (I have stupidly small lashes I know, and I look kinda dopey);
Here is after one c oat:
So you can see, it really has made a huge difference to my lashes (They haven’t been curled by the way).
& Just for effect, here they are once I have put the rest of my makeup on;
I’m sure I put another coat on, but there isn’t much difference.
So overall I really quite like this mascara. It’s very rare anything other than fake lashes can make my lashes look full, but this does it. However, after a month of using the product I don’t see as much difference as in the beginning (when the above photos were taken), I wonder if it’s because I’m used to the products or if its drying up? Or even because I don’t take as much time applying it nowadays? I don’t know. I would definetly consider repurchasing this product, but there are a few more mascaras I would like to try first. No doubt I will be back to this!
I hope you enjoyed my first kinda individual product review! If you have any feedback please feel free to leave a comment.
