If you have followed my ramblings for a while now, you will know that I definitely lean towards more higher end products but for things like mascara and concealer, you can pick up ones in Boots/Superdrug that are just as good, if not better than their more spendy counterparts.
Which is why I was chuffed to receive the Tom Ford Extreme Mascara as a present because at £32 / €34, I would never have bought this for myself! Actually I probably would have but felt guilty afterwards - promise :)
I’m a sucker for nice packaging with the signature dark brown with gold accents on the tube but of course that’s not enough! Black 01 Raven is the only one Mr. Ford offers. The brush is medium sized and tapers out and has natural fibre bristles, I‘m not too keen on the plastic ones. This is very pigmented and the formula is good. I think it gets better as the mascara gets older and it dries slightly. Once applied it doesn’t clump, smudge (impressive with my oily lids) flake or leave lashes feeling crispy! I find that this lengthens and defines lashes rather than adding volume or curl. Perhaps better for day time or I use this along with my trusted eyelash curler for nights out.
I’ve a lot of things to be thankful for but naturally long fluttery eyelashes ain’t one! I’ve heard that Revlon have one that is quite similar, have any of you tried this?
