I'm sure you're all very much sick and tired of hearing me rave on about my much-loved Dior Iconic Overcurl mascara (review here), but, when trying this mascara I couldn't help but compare it to the Dior. First of all, the packaging of this is beyond adorable, it's curved packaging makes it the perfect tube to hold while applying mascara, and the glittery tube draws me to it like a magpie. The product itself is ideal for controlling the amount of product you get on your eyelashes, meaning you don't get clumpy lashes (unless you're half asleep and run this wand through your lashes 99 times). It also gives an ideal amount of volume, length and holds curl for a very natural look, which is exactly what I try to achieve with my mascara. Much unlike the wand of my Dior mascara, this one comes to a point, meaning when I get to the corner of my lashes, I find it a lot easier to apply it without smudging, or getting little splodges (technical term Molly...) on my eyelids.
The wand itself, is almost like a two-in-one, although not at all like the dreadful, brush/comb ones you've seen before which just create a look more like spider's legs instead of eyelashes. When you turn it onto it's side, the wand looks slim, and the bristles are very straight and short, however the other side has longer bristles, in an almost teardrop shape. The widest side is ideal for coating the top lashes, and the slimmer side is ideal for the bottom.
Couldn't help but add a cheeky little snap of my nails at the end of this post. I painted them in one of my new favourite nude colours "Revlon's Gray Suede" and suffered from the "I want to paint my nails again, even though I just painted them" thoughts, so armed with my french manicure tip stickers and Essie's Cute as a Button, I thought I'd do a neon on nude look, which I actually really love.
Hope you're all doing well. I'm currently craving coffee, so I'm going to scoot off for a big mug of coffee, no milk, no sugar. Yum!
