I need to stop buying mascara. Period. But if you hadn’t found your perfect one, wouldn’t you keep looking too?
I bought this mascara and primer a few weeks ago from Beautymaker by Kevin:
These cost me £10 each. I fancied the primer because I liked the fancy name – ‘Super Thin Mascara Base’. In my experience, white based primers are too heavy and weigh my pathetic lashes down. So a feather light primer would work a treat, merci.
Another disappointment, or a flying success?The mascara is in the purple tube and the primer is in the white tube.
Beautymaker has lots of different types of mascara’s but I fancied trying the High Definition one because of the comb brush.
Anyway, less talk, more evidence! Here are my lashes pre anything:
The primer. Now – it was the ‘light’ in the primer that made me buy it. However as you can see the primer has already made my lashes flop. Its a little bit gloopy, a little bit thick. It clumps the lashes together.
I then added 2 coats of the High Definition mascara and whoop! We have one hot mess! Thick, clumpy, difficult to use:
I tried to comb this through trust me but it was one hot mess. Since both of these products come from the same brand you’d think they’d work ok together, right?
Now – I then used the mascara on its own with NO primer on my other eye. Did 2 coats here and there’s a huge improvement – I like the mascara and it held curl!:
However – its still a gloopy and slightly sticky mascara. It holds curl, it adds length so I like it but add more than 2 coats and it becomes a hot sticky mess. I won’t even bother attempting it with the gloopy base.
Mascara – YES! Great on its own
Base – FAIL! Too sticky and gloopy, yak. Shiseido lash base *still* rules!
Ever tried a gloopy-hot-mess mascara? Name and shame!
