Mascara Monday – @BuxomCosmetics Lash Volumizing Mascara

January 20, 2020

Because one can apparently never have enough mascara samples, today, I tested out the @buxomcosmetics Lash Volumizing Mascara ($22 for .37 ounces – https://shopstyle.it/l/bcRRx).

What it claims:

πŸ”˜ Give your lashes a visible lift with this cult-favorite mascara that delivers up to three times the volume in as little as a single stroke

πŸ”˜ The hourglass-shaped brush boasts dense, molded bristles that grip every hard-to-reach lash for dramatic definition, major length, and serious curl

πŸ”˜ Infused with glossy, patent leather pigments, vitamins, and antioxidants, this mascara nourishes and softens for fierce, flexible, fanned-out lashes

My experience:

πŸ”˜ Photo four (4) is with one (1) coat on my right eye, photo five (5) is with two (2) coats on my right eye and photos six (6) and one (1) are with two (2) coats on both eyes.

πŸ‘πŸ» This mascara did a great job of separating and defining each lash.

πŸ‘πŸ» It didn’t smudge or flake the one time I wore it for an entire day.

πŸ‘ŽπŸ» It failed to volumize, lengthen, or curl.

My verdict?

I knew, in my quest to try every mascara ever, apparently, I would eventually find a dud and I finally did it. Aside from the fact that this separates my lashes quite well, there aren’t many positives I can say about it. However, because I hate to be wasteful, I can see myself using this as a layering product. First, I would apply this to define my lashes. Second, I would apply one of my favorite mascaras over top of that to give me everything this one didn’t.

FYI, I receive a small commission when you shop via the link listed above. There is no additional cost to you.
