Case in point: today's mascara review, a new mascara from Prestige called My Biggest Lashes. Yes, that's the real name. I spotted it this weekend at Longs Drugs (along with some other goodies from Prestige, like new eye liners). Anyways, I was instantly drawn in by the hot pink tube and fancy, pretty fonts (yes, I'm a sucker for fonts too).
And.....here's a comparison to the Full 'n' Soft brush. MBL is on the left, and FnS on the right. They're pactically the same structure, but MBL is about twice as big.
I get GREAT length.
Really darkens my lashes.
Thickens really well.
Cute packaging ;)
No smudging or flaking, and was easy to remove at the end of the day.
The only thing that didn't do well with me is that it didn't hold a curl AS well as the Full 'n' Soft. Then again, I don't think MBL is a waterproof formula. But, still, it didn't totally kill my curl.
Oh, and FYI, here's what I'm wearing on my eyes: MAC Patina on the lid, MAC Twinks in the crease, Stila Wheat to highlight/blend, and Sonia Kashuk eye pencil in Iced Coffee (I've been using this like crazy over the past week- more info on this later!!).
All in all...I'm really taking a liking to it. I'm going to give it the rest of this week to see if I'll definitely repurchase, but the outlook is good so far. The price was about $6+ regular price, but Prestige is a brand that I usually see on sale from time to time. I picked it up for 25% off, so I paid about $4+ for it, which is still pretty good. I don't know yet if it will replace my Full 'n' Soft, but it's coming pretty close!!
