Smokey Eye Mascara | Bobbi Brown


Shockingly enough, when Jarek was in Poland he picked me up a few bits. I know, I know, I couldn’t believe it either. 

When I first got into blogging he was really supportive and not only helped me build my blog and logo, but also started helping with research.

One resource was a Bobbie Brown book which I loved and to this day cherish (well kinda, it’s in my mother’s house somewhere at the moment). Even though I loved the book I never ever bought any of the products. Not because I didn’t like them, but to be honest after talking to the sales reps at home in Dublin, I was made feel like it wasn’t a makeup brand for me.

Well to my surprise, Jarek came home with a bag of goodies and this little beauty was in it.


I love mascara, but never invest in expensive ones because I’ve found the ones in the “drugstore” to be great! 

This might be a game changer though!


First off let’s talk packaging. It’s sleek and has a kind of brushed metal look. I actually really like it. The text on the packaging is nice and clear, and so far has not budged . I find with the cheaper brands they can fade.



The brush is not something I would have chosen myself, but I have to say I love it. It helps coat my lashes beautifully and lengthens like a dream. 



One thing I find with some mascaras, is smudging. It drives me mad. I could pull off the panda eyes in my early 20’s but now that I’m in my 30’s (just) there is no chance. I’m pleased to say I’ve had no panda eyes with this mascara.

Another thing it needs to be is removable. Nothing drives me more crazy then waking up with black eyes. I go to bed thinking I’ve it all off and hey presto, when I wake up its like none of it came off. Luckily with this mascara it has great staying power but removes well. I’ve realised now that it’s best just to give in and get an actual eye makeup remover. 

Personally, I use this everyday, and would highly recommend this product, but some people might find it a bit much if they don’t wear much makeup. As we know for me this is no issue as I wear a full face everyday. 

I will definitely be trying more from Bobbie Brown.

Is there a product you’ve tried from the brand and love? Let me know in the comments below.

Till next week.
