As much as I wanted to like this product
on January 22, 2017
As much as I wanted to like this product, I don't. I love BareMinerals powder. Not their mascara. It was nasty, gloppy, wet, gave me spider eyes, big time. So I'm back to Estee Lauder's More than Mascara Rich Black which I've used since I first started wearing makeup! But I can't find another mascara that I like as much, no matter how many others I try.
But, let me explain my eyelashes because they're different than most. I have really, really long, fine eyelashes. So long I have to trim them or they hit my skin under my eyes on both sides, top and bottom, under my eyes and under my eyebrows because they're naturally curled. Also, if I don't trim them, they sort of look nasty on the ends, like long untrimmed hair. Trimming them a tiny bit with small nail or cuticle scissors makes them look really nice and neat.
Before you all get all jealous of my eyelashes, please know that most likely I would trade my lashes for your hair anyday. I have awful hair! It's like I never outgrew my baby hair - I do not actually have adult hair. It is so fine that I have to wear it up, wigs or extensions. And it's curly in spots and straight in others. God gave me gorgeous eyelashes to make up for this disaster on my head. ;)
Which I appreciate! But, it is hard to find good mascara. Because my lashes are so long and fine and tend to want to clump together - almost everything gives me gloppy spider lashes that look bizarre. No matter what I do, even if I comb through them, use a dry mascara brush, whatever. You name it, I've tried it. I just keep going back to my old standby Estee Lauder More than Mascara. I don't know what I'll do if they ever stop making it!
So I don't know if this review is going to help anyone but for the rare few that have lashes like mine. I have a feeling that this mascara would be great for others. But it certainly wasn't for me. I do love the BareMinerals Bareskin Perfecting Veil though, it's the best pressed powder ever!
