After 3 visits to the pc repair shop, I now seem to be back in the land of blogging & all is well *touches wood!*
So, back to normality & here I have a new mascara for you. You know I'm a complete mascara addict so couldn't resist this one when it was on offer in Superdrug, L'Oréal False Lash Superstar. It's now full price at £10.99 but is on 3 for 2.
This is a two-step mascara, something I've not really got on with in the past & I only tried it because it's by L'Oréal, but I have to tell you, I'll not be rushing out to repurchase it! Unfortunately, this is the first L'Oréal mascara I've not liked & I'm really quite shocked! I love the brushes & there's absolutely no dispute in that it gives phenomenal lashes, but my god, does it smudge! It's also a bit reminiscent of Benefit They're Real in that it's a bit of a sod to remove without seriously scrubbing your lashes - and we don't want to do that, thank you very much!
The first step uses an hourglass shaped brush & is a white thickening lash primer. I applied this & then after leaving it to dry slightly, applied the second step fibre rich formula with the curved brush & the photos show just one coat of each. I absolutely loved the immediate volumising effect, it was just a few hours later that I became disappointed.
I don't know if it's because I have oilier eyelids or something but after 3 or 4 hours of wear, it was all over them & smudged underneath my eyes, not good IMO. As I said, I've never had this trouble with L'Oréal mascaras before & their False Lash Telescopic is my HG mascara but this one just didn't float my boat I'm afraid. I'd only bother using it if I was going out for 2 or 3 hours & wanted some va-va-voom on my lashes, rather than an all-day mascara.
What do you think, have you tried this one?
