Okay, so call me a snob after using nothing but Benefit mascara for the past 6 maybe even 7 years, but this mascara packaging just stinks. It is black plastic which just feels cheap. You know when you were a kid and hap like 99p makeup, well that’s what this reminded me of and I was a but dubious about putting anything that looked this nasty near my eyes. I opened the tube and was pretty disappointed. The brush reminded me of those disposable ones you get at makeup counters to try new mascaras and the consistency was like tar. So before this went anywhere near my eyes, I went to my dear friend Google and asked him about this product. I mean after all, mama always said never judge a book by it’s cover right?
Okaaaay, so this retails at ten quid? Whaaaat?! Putting it in perspective, I have a rimmel mascara that retials at £6 that looks and seems much more expensive than this. If I had paid a tenner for this I would be severely disappointed. But hey, it might be awesome right? Well no, it isn’t. It is just pants. And I feel awful for slating this so much, but seriously people, don’t waste your money on this. It is thick and clumps like there is no tomorrow. Okay I only tried it once, but for me that was once too many. This is the first product I have thrown straight in the ‘bin box’ in I don’t know how long. I doubt this will ever see the light of day. If your on a budget, stick to Rimmel, 17 or Maybelline. They pack way more punch for the money. Rant over. Now excuse me while I go win some money at the pub quiz.
£10 off plus a free shine lipgloss using the code GLOSS10UK if you fancy this.
I would be interested to know if any other Models Co products are decent? Maybe this mascara is just a dud?
