Ratings:

  • Seperation– 3/5
  • Volume and length – 1/5
  • Lash curl – 1/5
  • Added darkness – 2/5

Pros – The mascara did a good job of separating my lashes. If it didn’t sting my eyes  I would keep it around to chuck it on for an extreme ‘natural’ look.

Cons – I have quite long lashes to being with, where usually it isn’t difficult to reach maximum impact quickly. The mascara had no impact on my lashes in regards to volume and length. My lashes practically looked like they did without mascara, only slightly more separated, darker and defined. 

The formula stung my eyes. I have never struggled with sensitivity in regards to eye products. I found it quite strange but did try it out a couple of times to see if it was just the day, unfortunately the sensitivity continued.

Would I repurchase? No. It simply did not work for me, that doesn’t necessarily mean that it won’t work for you.

Experience rating 3/10

Why cruelty free love?

I have always been a lover of animals. If an animal dies in a movie, i’m an absolute mess, if I see a dog walking on the footpath without someone beside them, I always stop, and if I witness any type of deprivation of any animal, I always report it.

My love of make up has always been equally strong. This stems from being a performer. I was always aware of animal testing, but I guess turned some what of a blind eye due to the love of make up. Now I am here to take a stand, to bring awareness to the issue that these poor souls have no voice to say no… I’m here to be their voice.

I am slowly making the transition into using all ‘cruelty free’ makeup, skincare and haircare brands. I am on a mission to find equal, if not better products to those I currently own. I will no longer be buying products from companies that test on animals, nor will I be blogging about them.

I ask you to please join me along the journey of standing up on for these animals and spreading the word amongst your family, friends and community. Remember, be kind, educate others and most of all, be loving.
