Last night, the hubs and I headed out to see some very excellent friends. Even though I wore sweatpants and a t-shirt, I needed to put something on my face. I don’t feel good unless I have on some mascara. I most recently have been using Maybelline’s The Rocket, and though I love it, I have the waterproof formula and it takes work to remove. Instead of a late night fight, I decided to use Wet n Wild MegaPlump Mascara in Very Black.
The tube isn’t too heavy and is easy to hold. When I opened the tube, I found the brush to be a bit smaller than I expected for a plumping formula. The mascara wasn’t very wet either. I actually found the formula to be a bit dry and thicker than I am used to.
If you look at the brush, you can see that it isn’t as big as other volumizing mascaras and the product at the tip doesn’t look particularly moist. Application was typical. I curled my lashes with my Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler, tilted my chin upwards, and started to paint my lashes. The smaller brush did make the tiny lashes at the corners easier to get to and the mascara did not clump really much at all.
Removal was easy, too. I just used my usual eye make-up remover (Yves Rocher) and it didn’t take any rubbing or scrubbing.
I did not find MegaPlump Mascara to make my lashes particularly plump but they looked long and a little more full. For about $3.99 US at your local store, it isn’t a bad deal.
Keep Calm& Primp On! XOXO
