The idea was to trial this mystery-mascara, and guess the brand and do a brief review -- such a great idea, right?!
It makes things interesting when you don't know the brand (so you have no expectations), don't know the price, and most of all, don't know the claim!
I think 100 of these mystery mascaras went out, so you've probably read reviews all over (mine is late). I'll make this short to save the bore! :P
As mentioned, no brand, no claims, nothing!
Curved brush with longer bristles on the top, and shorter bristles on the bottom. I've realised it provides little lift [in dual with eye-lash curling], but nothing too wow-worthy!
In short, the mascara is best at lengthening and separating. Another point to note is its intensely black colour! Shouldn't be a bad thing, right?
However, the formula is a tad wet, which I'm not a fan of. They can weigh down my lashes after a while, and take too long to dry so therefore can easily smudge and smear on me. And this does that. After a few hours of work, my lower lashes would smudge..
No, I like mascaras that lengthens and separates, but I can't stand ones that smudges. Mainly because I rarely touch-up on my make-up when I go out. Unless it provides incredible length, then sure, I'd take the bait.
I've heard that this mascara MAY be by Benefit, and it could be. The formula reminds me of a lot of They're Real, but with a different brush., I feel like this may be a Rimmel product though! By the brush, and much of my instincts.
The mystery-brand will be revealed on 02 March 2015!
When it's out, I'll make sure to post back!
What brand do you think created this mascara?
