Here's batch 2 of the quest for the ultimate mascara. Now we're getting somewhere!
With this batch, texture was more in focus. When you think of what an epic fail batch 1 was, this result surprised even me. The texture is great, it goes on well, layers up thickly and easily, and doesn't flake off (despite the really crappy brush that comes with this container).
Just to play around with colors, I used a chocolate brown for this batch.
Here's batch 2 with 2 layers on one eye (top lashes (only) and no layers on the other eye. Hopefully you can see which is which.
I've been testing this mascara for about 3 weeks as I write this, and it is actually looking very promising.
For everything except...
There is a downside. It is not water-proof - enough. I (purposefully) wore this to a training session and discovered that it happily 'melted' and ran down my face in rivers as I worked up a sweat.
Not attractive unless you're going for a sweaty zombie look.
Working on batch 3 as we speak..
More to come!
