After a failed shopping ban, the scariest part that I was trying to avoid to happen is going back to the drugstore. I felt like I missed a lot of things while I’m on a ban. I went to Boots the other day and cosmetics were on sale so I thought: IT’S A SIGN. I will be posting a haul as soon as I receive the items I ordered from BH cosmetics.
This item is included on the haul but I just can’t wait to try it. I have been on the hunt for a cheap mascara but with a good quality. Nothing has surpassed my love for Benefit They’re Real mascara and Maybelline Colossal. I was actually supposed to get the latter but the saleslady called me for this. GOSH Boombastic XXL Volume Mascara. It wasn’t on sale but it was on a promo. I got this for 80AED and got a full sized smokey palette priced at 120AED for FREE! It’s such a good deal, right?
As an initial review, first thing I liked about this mascara is the wand. It’s huge! It looks similar to Benefit They’re Real with its short plastic bristles. I normally would go for natural bristles like Colossal but I liked this one too. I also like the idea that it has ‘reservoirs’ which holds the products so I don’t need to put it in and out of the tube to get more product.
The formula is not wet nor dry. I like my mascaras dry so I think I’ll give this one few more weeks before I can say I 100% love it. It claims to give lots of volume. Here’s a comparison images of my lashes, with one coat and without mascara. It definitely gave me something.
Here’s a shot of my lashes with two coats. It gave me enough volume but it started to clump my lashes together. I prefer using it with only one coat, two coats – I can only wear for special occasions.
By the way, the formula I got is not waterproof. I like it but I will have to give it more time to dry out inside the tube, I think I’ll like it more that way.
I will try to post my latest haul soon and I promise to review the other items that I got. See you soon!
