When I saw this mascara brush I was excited…very excited…a square brush! Say it with me…
I – AM – A – ROBOT.
Boots No. 7’s new mascara launch for August the 12th is Extravagant Lashes Mascara (in Black, Black/Brown and Blut).
The brush is interesting! This mascara promises a dramatic curling effect for up to 8 hours and volume.
Hmm the brush sure looks more exciting when its pink.
The test! My eye no mascara (I sure look tired. If anyone wants to adopt me so I can sleep in all day, I cost £3.25 a day to run, give or take a few pence)
From the side:
The brush – yah, its HUGE!
Now the brush – what I noticed is that it reduces the amount of mascara mess you get on your lids, especially for short lashes girls like me. It also deposits quite a generous coat of mascara, and isn’t too bad to apply.
However since the reservoirs on the brush are wide compared to that of a bristle brush, its going to leave a thicker layer than some people are used to.
After one coat:
Ok. It didn’t hold curl at all. The mascara itself is a very rich, heavy texture – reminds me of L’oreal Voluminous and YSL Faux Cils and therefore by its very nature, is not going to hold/enhance curl.
As you can see, the volume and length are dramatically different but I personally need a mascara which holds curl (and there aren’t that many, Japanese or not).
Verdict: This will work best for girls that already have some curl to the lash, and longer lashed friends that don’t have issues with heavy mascaras. It is very dramatic – I’d love to see the brush is a smaller, easier to control form.
