Over the years I’ve grown a bit cynical about mascaras that promise to give long lashes. It seems like 90 % of mascaras on the market give that claim and than fail to deliver, at least in my (or better said, on my) eyes. So I wasn’t expecting much from this particular mascara, to be quite honest. I did however love the look of it the first time I took it out of the box – it’s one of the prettiest things in my bathroom right now.
I however quickly changed my opinion about the performance the first time I used it. It gives me incredibly long and voluminous lashes in a single coat but without clumping. The color itself is one of the darkest black I’ve seen in a long time, if ever. The formula is quite thick which is another reason why a single coat does the job. It has no smell I could detect which means it’s probably good for more sensitive eyes as well.
The wand is hourglass shaped, meaning you can really get your lashes from the inner corner to the outer lashes in a single swipe. It looks like nothing much, but it works wonders. The only thing I’m concerned is how this shape will perform when the formula goes even thicker – will it start to clump or will the color distribute normally? Stay tuned for that.
Anyway, so far I am really impressed with this mascara and it will probably become a staple in my collection. I like to have at least one mascara that I can rely on to perform wonderfully every time (while testing others that might not do the job as well) so I’m happy to have another go-to product that’s easily available.
You can buy this mascara in Muller drugstores or online *here*. It will set you back 14,95 € which almost half the price of my other favorite, the Lancome Hypnose mascara. I must admit that I’ve neglected the Artdeco brand for quite some time, but now I have a feeling that some more wonderful products might be hidden in the line and I’ll continue on my search for them.
Until next time, stay beautiful!
