As a birthday present to myself, I got a sampler of mascara from Sephora. I'll be reviewing these as I try them. It's all very exciting! Up first is a volumizing mascara from Bare Minerals. I never really got on the Bare Minerals band wagon so this is my first experience (not counting Buxom which I learned is owned by the same company along with MD Formulations).
So, I'll just come right out and say it, "I am very impressed!" It claims to volumize your lashes up to 600% after two coats. I don't know about all that but they definitely look more lush. And yet they are still soft. It also looks like I have more lashes. It has a thick, soft brush that easily captures all your lashes. I have to admit I was not very excited about this one. The packaging is just a boring, plain black. However, when the product inside is this good, I guess you don't need a lot of flash! Highly recommended.
Tip: If you have a problem area on your lashes (just one spot that doesn't seem to lengthen as much), try using the mascara wand vertically. It really works.
