Mascaras for me, is one of those products I’ll never get tired of testing, but there are usually more disappointments than expected. I have fussy eyelashes.
I got a chance to try Sisley’s newest offering, the So Intense mascara which is both adds volume and cares for the lashes at the same time.
Volume-boosting and lash-fortifying mascara using a brand new
Utilising Sisley technology to enhance length and thickness of bare lashes in just 4 weeks. Lashes are instanly coated and fuller. Day after day, lashes look longer, denser and more beautiful.
I love Sisley products even though they are on the premium side of the market – this costs £38 so it’s definitely one of the most expensive mascara’s I have ever tried.
Let’s talk about the brush. It’s like a comb mascara with spiky bristles. I like come mascara’s very much – they suit my eyelashes which can be a bit thin and sparse as they really cover every lash, provided the brush is a good shape. Regular comb mascara’s I find do not fit my eye shape and require a lot of wiggling for me to get my lashes into it = mess.
This spiky comb is excellent because of the way they are spaced and have the spiky ends, they work into the lashes very easily. When I’ve finished this mascara, I will definitely wash the brush and use it again for the brows or to comb through the lashes.
This mascara is pretty intense in that it is a. thickening and dense – the formula is very rich so even with one coat you can feel it covering your lashes and b. it is a very very dark true black.
I worry about any mascara that is heavy because my lashes do not like to hold curl. Surprisingly this was not an automatic droop – in fact it retained some curl which is surprising because it’s counterparts such as Chanel Imitable and Dior Extase make my lashes flop immediately.
Having said that I am not saying it’s a curling holding mascara mascara – on me it looks fine if you have natural curl this mascara will work beautifully on you and won’t weigh them down.
Using one coat of mascara – additional coats will add more oomph. The lashes are quite separated with this mascara too;
This is not a waterproof mascara but it is smudgeproof – however I would refrain from using this in any ‘wet / sweaty’ situations!
In terms of lash fortifying – yeah my lashes do look healthy and stronger although I can’t confirm this works like a lash serum it hasn’t done mine any damage at all!
A very nice mascara but because it couldn’t hold my curl really well it’s not a HG for me. Someone with naturally long lashes with curl will love this as it gives good definition without looking gloopy.
This costs £38 and you can buy it here.
