Such big claims made by this mascara, so I eventually caved and decided to see what all the fuss is about. I chose the waterproof version as I always get mascara smudge on my under eyes.
What is it?
“Iconic hourglass shaped brush unlocks the collagen fueled formula that thickens, lengthens and curls for extreme volume and dramatic lashes. One coat and lashes are full, defined, and stretched to unbelievable lengths. Two coats and lashes look even more luscious, curled and dramatic. Three coats and you’ve achieved the most intense, voluminous, waterproof lashes possible“.
How do I use it?
When I first used this mascara I just whacked it on any old how and rushed through my morning make up routine. Too Faced recommend the following application:
Step 1: Apply the first coat from base to tip – (ok easy, I can do that)
Step 2: Apply the second coat over and under the lashes (over and under…yep although have managed to get dome on my eye lids argh)
Step 3: Apply third coat by rolling the wand from base to tip and bumping the lashes back at the tip. (fab!…done)
*For best results, let your lashes dry in between coats.
The packaging, I am sure we all agree, is to die for….gorgeous! The first time I tried this I used my own rushed method whilst getting ready for work. Just doing a couple of coats root to tip. I managed to get the mascara all over my eye lids as the brush is quite thick. The results from this were average, I really wasn’t blown away by it at all. The only positive was the longevity, the mascara didn’t budge all day, no smudging, I even had to use Garnier 2 in 1 eye make up remover to get it off.
So, I tried again with the Too Faced suggested method. I have to say it made all the difference! I am clearly useless mascara application though, as I still managed to get it all over my eyelids. The results were great (see pic below – left with mascara – Right without mascara, sorry about the poor image). I have been reaching for this mascara more and more as my every day mascara due to it’s staying power…just need to come to terms with the price tag!
- Waterproof – doesn’t budge all day, absolutely no smudging.
- Made my lashes look a lot fuller
- Added length to my lashes
- I did seem to get mascara all my eye lids – could just be me!
- Takes time to get the desired effect.
