I know! You’re wondering, “Celina, you’re back home now, where is the Book of Fables!?”. Trust me, I have five, count them FIVE looks already filmed and ready to be edited… and that’s the problem, since coming back I’ve been unpacking my insane amount of luggage and then I jumped straight back into work which has been consuming all my free time.
So yep, that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it 😛 But you can expect the series to return starting next Friday 🙂
Let’s talk about this mascara by Benefit, I was sent this product JUST before I left for Hong Kong and decided to take it with me to try out 🙂 I had heard a lot of great reviews surrounding this product and so was keen to see whether it could live up to the hype, and admittedly I really do love it!
The key aspect for me is the wand, it has larger spikes at the tip, which is great for separating my lashes as well as grabbing the ones on the inner corner of my eye.
The result are fluttery lashes with above average length and volume. It reminds me of the effect I get when I use individual false lashes on the outer corner of my eye. Really do love it.
A couple of downsides is every time I use this mascara on my lower lashes, a few hours later I find it can smudge and it’s generally very difficult to use on my lower lashes to begin with. Granted mine are almost non-existent, but I think you’ll find a thinner smaller wand more effective.
