I’m not entirely sure about you, but in my world, if your eyelashes are not branching out into the world looking all luscious and full of life, with ample amounts of volume then you might as well get straight back into bed, call it a day, and rethink your eyelash goals!
Yes, we have days when we really could not care about looking like a Ratchet Rascal with a make-up free face, but on those occasions when we do actually dress to impress, we should ALL want to be sporting a set of mighty fine lashes, sprouting from our eyeballs. You know, the type that will make the boys flock to our feet!
I have been using my Beautiful Colour Lash Enhancing Mascara from the Elizabeth Arden New Beauty Collection since Christmas last year (Santa was REALLY kind) and for the last month and a bit this has been my ABSOLUTE holy grail and my “go-to ” make up tool for a bit of a ‘bright eyed and bushy tailed” kind of look. Emphasis on the BRIGHT EYED part!
FIRSTLY, can we just take a moment to appreciate the fact that the packaging is mainly gold. I mean, how fabulous, and is of a sturdy rectangular shaped tube with an easy to use twisty lid – always handy!
The consistency of this mascara is quite wet for the first few applications (as is any new mascara) but is absolutely brilliant at plumping up those lashes. Because of the wetness, the mascara is smooth and super easy to apply. Would you like to know the best part? You’ll be on the prowl sporting some clump free lashes! There is nothing worse than having clumpy lashes – it’s just not attractive, and should be frowned upon! The formula gives your lashes that extra bit of volume with longer length and a subtle bit of curling, but is completely flake and mess free!
I think we can thank the mascara brush for the clump free detail, Oh, and Elizabeth Arden too, of course. The brush has smaller bits of the wand which allows you to reach your shorter lashes on the inside of the eye, as well as on the ends! It is also a brilliant brush for plumping up those bottom lashes without any mess.
When doing my mascara in the mornings, I literally jump between different brushes to reach my shorter lashes but haven’t encountered such an issue while using this Wonderful Wand. I have a habit of reapplying my mascara quite a few times a day, but haven’t really found the need to do that with this one, UNLESS I’m out and about gallivanting straight from work into the night with the same face of make-up, which is of course, understandable.
This mascara can be found at any Red Square or Edgars Stores (where Santa got mine) and retails for R220.00 each,
Well, what are you waiting for? I’m sure your eyelashes will thank you later, and be careful not to trip over the boys that will be flocking at your feet!
