Ooh, I’m back from my latest vlogging jaunt. Always feel like I’m being slightly unfaithful to words when I gallivant off into the Tube of You, surely I’m being ridiculous, no?
Mascara is a tricky one for me to review as I’m a bit of a spoilt brat when it comes to Lashes. I demand it all.
Now I have never repurchased a mascara I bought. How cray is that? I have never been wowed enough by a mascara to not be left wondering, is there better out there?

Now I have read a few neggy nelly reviews on line but for me this is my go to Mascara and I shall ‘splain why.
Okay, Packaging. Uh, its tres chic in its Gun metal grey with a red scrawl naming its endorser on the front. Now I’m not the biggest fashion follower (my beauty addiction costs far too much to add clothes in the equation) but I have to admit every Kate Moss product I’ve tried has left me impressed but having her face on it doesn’t inspire me to buy it straight away.
Also love the fact that the tube is huge and curvy making it feel comfortable in my hand. Yes I don’t think this was ergonomically tested and I also agree it takes up a lot of space in ones make up bag, but uh hello, its looks freakin’ tight!
The wand, ugh just like Hermoine loves her little twig I love my wand.
The wand, as you can see has this broken heart shaped head. Not just a gimmick peeps, full on design feature.
The head is designed to capture the harder to reach inner lashes whilst still giving it full billy bifta on your outer lashes.
I feel it does this impeccably, my mascara is evenly applied and it captures even the tiniest of lashes.
The formula is rather wet but it packs a punch. With its carbon black formula your lashes will be dark as your soul. It can be quite difficult due to its wetness, so if you are a bit hap hazard with your mascara than keep a baby wipe on hand.
For me with thin medium length eye lashes the combination of the wand and the formula leave me with lashes dramatically longer and with more volume.
Here’s a shot of without, with one coat and with two coats.
