I love trying new mascaras and I love trying out new beauty brands. This is my first experience with Marc Jacobs beauty line. Sephora offered this sample/travel size mascara as one of their point perks and I was so glad I picked it out.
Have you ever tried Too faced better than sex? Well this is it’s twin sister minus the massive flaking. I did really like Better than sex it would give great volume but it would flake on me during the day constantly. And I know so many other women are complaining about the same issue.
Is it the best one I have tried? No but it is close. It gives very good volume in one coat, it is easy to apply, doesn’t clump, doesn’t smudge. It has decent black pigment (it could have been more of a deeper black). It is nice choice for a everyday mascara for it’s fool proof application. For something more I would rather recommend Lancome Hypnose or Chanel volume de chanel.
In the photos below I am wearing two coats of it without a primer and with a bit of curling prior the application.
Formula is soft on lashes, and they stay soft after it dries. I had no problem removing the mascara with my regular eye makeup remover (Lancome bifacil).
I really like the brush – it is perfect size and the fact that is slightly dented in the middle helps push the lashes upwards to make them appear longer. Also it is thick enough but not gigantic like Diorshow for example , which makes it easy to grab onto each tiny lash.
It retails for 26$ and it is available at Sephora, I have actually couple of these and I know I will be enjoying using them. I love mini mascara samples because it really gives you opportunity to try the mascara and figure out if it works for you or not.
