Born Pretty Store Mascara Review

{Outfit linked here}

I'm a full make up type of person. {I always like to be camera ready, ok?} When there's not enough time for that, though, simply foundation and mascara are my go-to. That said, I am extremely picky about the mascara that I use. When it comes to my lashes, I like mascaras that lengthen and add volume. Ones that stay a long time and don't smear. Well guys, I've officially found one I love! 

Born Pretty Store's Double-Ended Lengthening Mascara Serum

Fibers/Lack of Eye Agitation: 
I tried a "fiber mascara" over the summer and had major regrets. The product was expensive {$20} and caused major agitation to my eyes. They were itching and burning all day. I rubbed them endlessly which then in turn caused running. Talk about chaos! Need less to say, I was quite skeptical about trying a new fiber mascara. This one doesn't have the dry, hair-like fibers, though. Instead it has a smooth cream that easily applies and STAYS where it belongs. 

Ability to Lengthen & Add Volume:
The white fiber cream subtly lengthens and creates natural volume, while a black mascara liquid polishes your look. I personally like a touch of clumping. (I think it looks natural and makes the lashes look thicker.) The best part about this product? You can use the brushes to create any type of look you want! Want a little clumping, great. Want a smooth look, just use the brush to smooth the fibers. The length and volume is

Layering ability: 
Like I said before mascara is one of my favorite make ups, and one of my guilty pleasures is layering on multiple mascaras at once. (They each seem to have their own strength/specialty!) I think this one does the job by itself, but if you want to add a little punch, this mascara works great with others!

Long wear:
Simply put, it lasts forever!! It literally stays, without running or flaking, for as long as you want until you take it off!
      Rating: 5/5

The only down side to this mascara is that it's really hard to remove. I'll be the first to admit that I'm terrible at removing any mascara. (Is there any way to avoid looking like a racoon?) This one is really hard to remove, though. My best suggestion? Soak your lashes gently as you was your face and then stroke downward.

I highly recommend this! It adds a ton of volume and is gentle on your eyes. It doesn't cause agitation and is perfect for lengthening. Plus it's great for layering and is long lasting!

  4. Love the hat you're wearing! Gorg! And I haven't yet bought a fiber mascara, I tried my friends and it seemed to work really well, adding length to my lashes but I didn't like the fact that it seemed to flake. Great review!
