For a perfect look eye makeup is must. Eyes are the prettiest thing one can have. So the today’s post is all about ELF mascara. I am not a mascara girl but probably I believe that applying fake lashes and giving the eye a pain rather than that mascara can be used instead of that. Mascara gives your natural lashes looks absolutely amazing. I apply mascara only when I used to attend any party or anything else I do not use but let see how it is.
About the product:This mascara creates voluptuous lashes that are full and defined. The vitamin B & E enriched formula conditions lashes. The silicone brush effortlessly combs through lashes, coating them evenly for a rich, clump-free finish.

My opinion about the product:I like the brush more that the formula. It’s a huge, slightly tapered, swirl bristle brush that coats every lash and allows for building without clumping. My wand was also slightly bent right before the brush and intentional or not, the bend makes it easier to get to the corner lashes. The brush is a little cheap though as some of the bristles uncoil and get straggly.But it takes more than a big brush to build volume. The formula is okay, nothing to write home about. Good black color, consistency on the wetter side, doesn’t crumble, stick or flake. Its adds minimal length, volume or curl. It’s very basic for a basic look, even with the ELF primer. It washes off cleanly with soap and water. I was so stoked when I got this mascara!
I like mascara that volumizes but that doesn’t look like false lashes. This can be both or just the former. With a gentle hand you can give your lashes a little bit of volume. Length I don’t know because I have naturally long (ish) lashes. The bad thing about it is that it goes clumpy VERY quickly! I find I have to wipe off the excess that I get on the brush which is not really great because then you’re just wasting product. This has been a pleasant surprise. Goes on cleanly (no clumps or drips) and adds length and volume. One of the best mascaras I’ve used and dirt cheap.
What I liked about the product
- Volumizes can build intensity.
- Nice intense black colour.
- Good price point.
What I don’t liked about the product
- Availability issues.
- Clumpy after a short time.
