10 different products that have been forgotten or neglected, or that we just want to use up, that have not been reviewed on our blogs before (but are still on the market). Over the course of 10 weeks we will make an effort to try to use them, and review one of the products weekly (every Monday), and update on our progress on each of the 10 products over the 10 week period.
Today I’m reviewing the Lash Mania (Waterproof) Mascara from Essence Cosmetics.
Here’s what it says on the European website, since it seems to have disappeared from the Canadian one:
lashes with star appeal! the innovative elastomer brush with a star-shaped arrangement of blades accurately grips your lashes to give them a push-up effect. the result: lashes with extreme volume and a dramatic false-lash look. secret tip: the LASH mania reloaded mascara offers perfect separation and can therefore also be used as a mascara topper. for all mascara maniacs.
My experience: I have long stick straight lashes, so I always curl my lashes before applying mascara. At first my lashes look super long and have a nice curl, but I wouldn’t say that the mascara added any volume, or gave me a dramatic false lash look. Within an hour of applying, my lashes began to droop. This mascara does not hold a curl for me. I really wanted to like this mascara, since I LOVE their Get Big Lashes (Waterproof) Mascara. I’ve tried using it as a topper over GBL, but it just weighs my lashes down and causes them to droop.
Update on the remaining products:
Hard Candy Primer – reviewed week 1, will never use again after my bad reaction.
Urban Decay Naked 3 palette – used 1x
Tarte Amazonian Clay Bronzer – did not use
Georgie Beauty False Lashes and Adhesive – did not use
Wayne Goss Brush 01 – reviewed week 2, used 2x
Haircare & Bodycare:
Not Your Mother’s Way to Grow Shampoo – used 2x
Not Your Mother’s Way to Grow Conditioner – used 2x
Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream – used daily, sometimes 2-3x per day
Living Proof Prime Style Extender – reviewed week three, used 1x, nearly finished the tube!
Overall: I was sick last week, so I only wore makeup twice when I had to leave the house, and the rest of the time I was recovering from the plague, so I didn’t make a lot of progress on using up the makeup products. But I’ve been very good at using the Burt’s Bees Cuticle Cream since my hands have been so dry.
