Mascara is the bane of my life!! I’ve been searching for my ride or die for years! Over this time I have found many, but every time they become discontinued. Its one of the most frustrating things!
I’m yet to find my latest ride or die, but never the less I’m here to chat about yet another mascara!
Barry M is one of my favourite drugstore brands. I adore their nail paint and have dipped in and out of a few other products. I’m a sucker for their packaging and their mascara packaging always speaks to me. This time was no different.
You would never think it, but purple is my favourite colour! So even though there are a good few to choose from the purple one was the 1st one I went for (there was no rose gold one at this stage).
There were no testers so I had no idea what the wond would be like, but was pleasantly surprised! It has what I can a hedgehog wond. Meaning it’s stiff with largish stiff bristles. I find this style easier to manage and gives my lashes more definition.
This wand is actually quite cool, its kinda double sided. It has a “normal” side and a shorter side. I know that sounds so odd, but its actually quite useful. I use the “normal” side on my top lashes and the shorter side for my bottom lashes.
The mascara itself is fine, really good actually. It applies to the lashes well, coats them, lengthens them, but it is a small bit clumpy when I apply it fast. The wear is great too! It lasts AMAZINGLY well all day with absolutely no smudging. I’ve also had quite an emotional few months and spent most days crying and it doesn’t budge. I do find it a bit heavy on the lashes though and it is (for me) a nightmare to get off no matter what I use! Its there days later and I’ve hurt my eye trying to scrub it off!
There are a number of positives about this mascara that will defiantly have me reaching for it again, but due to the heaviness on the lashes and the fact I can’t get it off it’s not my ride of die, so my search continues.
