Sent to me specifically to try out and review, I was super excited at the chance to try this mascara that as soon as I received the package I tried it on and loved it, haha. Ok so many of us have this 1 mascara in our lifetime that is a holy grail item, we go out and buy 3 at a time and have gone through so many to count.....Well....I have a feeling this mascara is going to be mine :)
Packaging - Isn't it gorgeous! I was using it in my office and a couple of people came in and asked me if it was Chanel or Gucci or something, lol....I love the gold tube, so shiny! I think the best part of the packaging is that it doesn't look cheap or gaudy instead it looks elegant and expensive.
Formula - I find this formula to be perfect. I always tend to wait a few days before using a new mascara because I can't stand to use a new one since the formula always tend to be watery. This formula was actually very nice, it wasn't too watery nor too dry. The formula doesn't create a glob on the wand, the wand holds the perfect amount needed to do the lashes. There is not a weird smell or scent in the formula, I know scent is a concern with some. When you first look at the wand you can see the small fibers in the formula, they are not large or too small, they are perfect.
Applying - This is the easiest to apply! I like to curl my lashes then apply it. I can see both length and volume, maybe more length than volume but still they come out gorgeous! I don't see any odd fibers in place and as a matter of fact I don't see them at all as I am applying which is great since they blend very well while applying to create the false lash effect.
Wear - There is no flaking nor smudging. The hold lasted all day, I usually put on makeup between 8 and 9am in the morning and I take it off as soon as I get home which is in between 6 and 7pm. The hold is pretty good, lasting the curl nearly all day, by 5pm the curl was still there but not as great as it was in the morning.
The wand is comparable to the Maybelline Lash Stiletto mascara. As you can see I am merely comparing the 2 side by side as I find the wands look similar in shape and size.
The formula is available in waterproof and in black-brown color as well.
Lash Stiletto and Voluminous False side by side.
In these pics I tried to capture the fiber on the lashes, as you can see on the above picture. Of course when blended well it looks alot better. The other 2 pics are with 2 coats.
