If anyone spends thirty dollars on this mascara, they need to have their head examined. It’s completely forgettable. The length I got from this was just OK. The volume I got from this was just OK. It would smudge after only a few hours. And talk about smudge, I would end up with raccoon eyes by the end of the day.
It’s mediocre at best. Virtually anything you could pick up at the drugstore would work as well if not better (Maybelline Lash Stiletto, I still love you).
I couldn’t imagine Bobbi Brown would intentionally design a product this average. I mean, I LOVE Bobbi Brown makeup. I kept using this thinking it was just user error, but nothing ever improved. After ten or twelve times, I gave up. It’s just nothing special especially for the price. I mean, if you’re looking to spend this much on mascara, go out and buy Diorshow. You’ll get length and volume with no clumps. That’s what this is going for. At least I think that’s what this is going for.
Now that it’s been established that I don’t like this at all, it’s time to say something nice.
This mascara is VERY black. It’s got kohl in it, and it shows. (I think the kohl is part of the reason why it smears so badly, but I’m being nice now.) It doesn’t make your lashes clump together when you start piling it on, but…
…but I cannot get any length from the application. I’m sorry, I’m not spending thirty bucks on this. Seriously, go to the drugstore and pick up L’oreal Lash Paradise (or just about anything for that matter), and you’ve got something just as good or even better.
Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara: No, just no. I’m not getting this ever.
