Transparent gel mascara
Cares for lashes and styles eyebrows
Quantity: 9 ml
Shelf Life: 3 years
Let’s talk about the formula first. Its consistency is thin just like a glue mixed with water. It says gel mascara but the consistency is nowhere close to a gel one. It smells weird.
When I apply it to my eyelashes it almost drips due to its thin formula. For few seconds it gives my lashes a lengthening effect but as soon as it dries up my lashes get back to normal. It separates the lashes. It doesn’t look like I’ve applied something. This was a major disappointment for me.
I also used it on my brows and it effectively tamed them. I’m not sure if this mascara is like that or I’ve got the defective product!
Tames eyebrows well
Has a wand that separates and lengthens lashes
Consistency is thin and nowhere close to the gel
Smell isn’t pleasant
Doesn’t give any curling, lengthening effect to eyelashes.
Final Word: This gel mascara didn’t work for me. Don’t expect any volume from this mascara since it’s thin but it tames eyebrows well and makes a good brow gel but not a mascara. I think someone with thick lashes can only make it work so it’s not really recommended from my side!
I only use it as a browgel as I find it makes my mascara a little "goopey" so I stay away from that.
I apply it before using my normal mascara.
Important to let it dry properly then apply your usual mascara.
Lengthens them, thickens them - pretty much a budget way to great lashes!
This gel definitely helps me tame and maintain my unruly eyebrows! I only use this as a brow gel at the moment and it works best when I apply it before any other product, shape and colour and then a bit more to set it in place. This usually keeps my brows in place the entire day. Personally, I prefer a more natural daytime look and thus enjoy the lightweight gel, I wouldn’t recommend this for evening makeup where one would want a slightly more set brows and a less natural look.
At a price point of about R45.00 I would say it’s great value for money that you can easily integrate into your everyday routine.
A GREAT BUY !!!
It applied easily and the original newly bought see through packaging are so beautiful until you start using it for a while and it gets product in it like foundation, powder, pencil and you end up with something you which you couldn't see through.
But other than that its a good old trusty product!
