I’m sure you’ve all seen this mascara floating around the web and being reviewed everywhere because it’s just so darn interesting. If you haven’t seen this mascara, well, I’m here to show you and let you know my thoughts.
Whenever I think of Givenchy, I think of luxurious modern fashion and amazing perfume. Of course that meant that this mascara was going to be modern looking but also feel very luxurious. The packaging is really nice, I love the rectangular shape.
Now this mascara is very interesting. It has rubber bristles on one side and what makes it unique is the wand bends 90 degrees. I do like the formula of the mascara and love how intensely black it is.
It took me one or two uses to really get the hang of using the wand but once I did I found it made applying mascara much easier. I was able to get super close to my lash line and apply mascara onto the inner and outer 3rd of my lashes. Most of my other mascaras give me trouble whenever I try to get mascara on the inner 3rd of my lashes to coat the little hairs there but the design of this bent wand makes it really easy and comfortable to get into every corner with ease.
The look it gave on my eyes was very wispy and flirty. My lashes were evenly covered and nicely fanned out. My only downside is that it didn’t make them appear any thicker or super voluminous which is what I really like. I think it makes a great everyday mascara and looks really beautiful for a softer look, however, if I want something more dramatic, which is what I prefer, I will have to use something else in my collection.
I’m happy I was able to give this mascara a try. I’m not sure if I will purchase this particular one again. It retails for $38.00 CAD and I don’t think it gave me what I desire in a mascara. I did like the formula so I wonder if I might prefer one of the other mascaras Givenchy has to offer.
Have you tired this mascara? What are your thoughts on the design?
Lots of Love,
