I got my ipsy bag today, finally. It has never, ever gotten to me this late before. I even got a “sorry for the delay” email a week ago. Despite the tardiness, I am overjoyed with ipsy. I have loved nearly everything I’ve gotten from them, and I’ve always gotten things in very complimentary colors. I always worry when I see the color choices of, say an eyeliner, and they are gold or brown. I always implore the powers that be to provide me with the brown one haha!
This month, I was blessed with a mini mascara. I am always on the hunt for a jam up mascara. I like my lashes, but when I’m wearing the right mascara, my lashes look phenomenal. This month’s offering was a “right” mascara.
I received a mini tube of PÜR Cosmetics Fully Charged mascara, in black. It’s an anti-aging formula that, according to the website, uses “a “magnetic” polymer matrix that wraps a positively charged elastic veil around each lash to instantly lift, separate and define each lash for long-lasting performance.” (http://www.purcosmetics.com/fully-charged-mini)
That’s pretty impressive, if you ask me. The tube I was sent is not waterproof, and I prefer a budge-proof formula, especially in the summertime. I wore this out this afternoon for about two hours and there was no smudging. It was super easy to get off my lashes, too. I always use coconut oil to remove eye makeup, and it cut through the mascara like it was nothing!
This definitely made a very good first impression. My lashes were well coated, separated, lifted, fanned out. Just about every good thing that can be said about a mascara, I’m saying. The only drawback, and it’s slight, is that this isn’t waterproof, and I couldn’t find a waterproof version of this formula on their website. Again, it’s slight, but it is a drawback for me. However, that will not stop me from purchasing the full size when I finish up this little baby size. Aren’t travel size makeup products the cutest? Check it out, let me know what you think. What are some of your favorite mascaras and what do you recommend?
