If you were to ask me what is the one makeup item I could not live without it would be mascara (ok…and maybe eyeliner too!) On those days when we feel a bit tired or under the weather, mascara can be our best friend. Some mascaras offer lengthening, curling or separation promises and on many occasions I have been left feeling rather disappointed with the results. You may remember from a recent Charlotte Tilbury Haul I shared with you all that I purchased the Full Fat Lashes 5 Star Mascara. This product comes with glowing reviews and I couldn’t wait to see if I agreed with my fellow bloggers.
I have been using this mascara since September, and I am just coming to the end of the tube so feel it is an excellent time to share with you all my pretty honest review.
The mascara comes in an 8ml tube. Charlotte only makes the mascara in one colour; glossy black. The mascara promises curl, separation, volume, length and drama.
At first I was not all that impressed with the mascara. I found it very hard to apply and did not find it stuck to my lashes particularly easy. I was close to giving up and moving back to my favourite Chanel mascara when I realised the results really do depend on how you apply it. Sure, you can apply the mascara in the conventional way but if you follow Charlotte’s instructions this mascara is simply mesmerising!
Begin by gently coating the lashes by resting the brush on the lash line and zig-zagging the wand up through the lashes. When you are happy with the look, get the brush and pay particular attention to the outer lashes by brushing out. It really helps to make them appear longer. When it comes to applying to the bottom lash line, instead of using the brush horizontally, try applying holding the brush vertically and gently coat each lower lash. By following these simple stages that Charlotte recommends, I am sure you will fall in love with this mascara too!
Perhaps my search for the one really is over?! I am so glad I stuck with it!
You can purchase Full Fat Lashes for £22.00 from Charlotte Tilbury counters nationwide.
