Finding the perfect mascara that gives big lashes seems to be the hardest thing to get right in the green beauty world. I have tried quite a few mascaras, and have found good alternatives for day time use, but nothing that really gives those big fluttery lashes.
I bought my sample of Jane Iredale Longest Lash Mascara from Naturisimo quite some time ago, tempted by it's claims to thicken as well as lengthen the lashes. I like the softness of the brush, but I am afraid that is pretty much it.
I found the formula wet and messy. No matter how careful I was, most of the mascara seemed to transfer onto my eyelid. It also made a mess of the actual tube. I felt that it never dried on my lashes properly, and therefore smudged easily. It did give a little length, but I didn't find it volumising at all.
Safe to say that I am very glad to have tried the sample first, and will not be buying the full size. Do you have any recommendations for a volumising mascara?
