I am currently at my parent’s house having a nice break from my own chaotic home, eating good food, online shopping and lazying about 😀 Now, that is my kind of weekend…especially post baby 😉
I received the LORAC Pro Mascara for free when I purchased something from their site a while back..I think it might be when I bought the LORAC Pro palette 2 (Psst..I’ve fallen out of love with it sadly).
I was quite bummed when I first opened up the tube since the brush was huge and not my style at all. Anyway they say not to completely dismiss a mascara by the shape and size of the wand..so I went ahead anyway and gave it a try.
As expected, the big brush was a problem for me. Maybe its my eye shape..but this humongous brush proved to be an issue when I tried to coat my inner most lashes. Take a look at the brush below:
It also didn’t help that each time I pull the wand out of the tube, the tip would have a huge blob of the mascara. I pretty much always landed up getting mascara smeared on my lids or the nose or somewhere near my eyes when I used this wand 😦
The messy application aside, the actual mascara formula wasn’t that great either. I think it can be best described as meh! I have used better drugstore mascaras and at the same time the formula on this one wasn’t the most terrible one I have used till date.
I usually look for a combination of length (70%) and volume (30%) when it comes to mascaras. This formula did not wow me in either department. Things were going on okay in the Meh mascara world for a while and then the tube crossed the 1 month mark..things went downhill from there! The drier formula made it impossible for me to apply more than 1 coat…2 coats and I had 3 lashes due to massive clumping 😦
I have to give this mascara some brownie points for not smudging and lasting all day when applied. Also I do have sensitive eyes and these did not make me tear up.
Overall, this mascara was just not my cup of tea and I am glad I got this as a gift with purchase. Have you tried the LORAC Pro mascara? Does it work for you?
Until next time, ciao!!!
