Cosmetics A La Carte Mascara

This mascara is a pretty pricey one and retails for £23 - to have such a high price tag can only mean that it's an amazing mascara, right?

I got this in my Love Me Beauty Box a couple of months ago and i was so excited i didn't even care about what else came in the box i just wanted to get my hands on this mascara. Now maybe, i was wrong to have such high expectations but this mascara let me down and was more average than awesome.

My lashes actually don't look so bad in the photo but whenever i apply this it leaves me with clumpy lashes, even when i only apply one coat they clump together and i have to try and brush them out to separate them. The very first time i used it, i thought the clumping might have been due to it being quite a wet formula but it's happened every time i use it.

I also think the brush on this isn't that great either; it picks up a lot of product which i think is part of the clumping issue but the bristles on it are insanely short - I've never noticed if any other mascaras i own have bristles this short but I'm wondering if that might be part of the problem with distributing the product causing it to clump. I'm rather disappointed with this mascara; i know I'm partly to blame because i expected to much but i really wanted this mascara to be amazing and it was so far from it. I've been wearing it quite consistently in the hopes that it'll get better with time but so far it's just reinforcing the disappointment.

It's not all doom and gloom for this mascara though; the packaging of this is great, the silver casing makes it look luxurious which considering the price tag I'd expect. It doesn't smudge around the eyes or anything and it's also a long lasting mascara; some of the days that I've been testing this out on I've worn it all day I'm talking like 7:30am til 5ish, if not later so it's lasting power is quite impressive especially considering i normally only apply one coat.

So there are some good things about the mascara but for me personally they don't outweigh the negative. I dislike clumpy lashes and it's not a look id want to get from any mascara let alone one that retails for £23 so i won't be going buying this anytime soon. Obviously, my experience with this mascara may differ to someone else's but i was left feeling disappointed and i know I've got much cheaper mascaras that give me much better results.

  3. £23 seems a little over priced for this. I want fanned out lashes, not clumpy ones.
