Beauty review Friday!

Hola amigos,

I wanted to share a review on some High end mascaras I've been trying out. I feel like I've tried them out long enough to form a proper opinion on them. 

So let's get right to it!


First we have the Tarte gifted amazonian clay mascara. Here I have the deluxe sample sizes but the tarte mascara retails for $19.00 @ Sephora and Ulta stores and websites. In all honesty I find it quite pricey for a mascara since there are drugstore brands for much less in price and work amazingly. However that being said I very much enjoyed this mascara in particular. The brush end was perfect me, as I prefer thinner mascara wands due to the fact that I have very thin and short lashes so Thicker mascara brushes do nothing for me. I liked the formula on this one. It did not flake on me but it did not last all day on me. Which is why I always wear waterproof mascaras. 
I give this mascara an: A- 
Pros: good formula not too wet not too dry, no flaking, good brush end.
Cons: Price, not waterproof


Next we have the "They're Real" By: Benefit retails for $23.00 
I really enjoyed the formula all though it again did not last all day and it was very rich in pigmentation. The brush end was my favorite part to it. As you can see in the picture it is pointed at the end with extra bristles to help you get those hard to reach lashes. I loved that! Would I purchase the full size product? No! Only because I have to wear waterproof formulas and they do not offer a waterproof option. 
I give this product an: A-
Pros: pigmentation, brush end.
Cons: Price, not waterproof

Lastly we have the "BAD gal lash" By: Benefit retails for $19.00
I don't even know where to begin with this one. It was definitely a waste of money for me. For starters it is a very dry formula and again not waterproof. It flaked like hell and pretty much completely flaked off by the end of the day. 
I give this product an: F
Pros: N/A
Cons: Price, dry formula, flaking, not waterproof

Please remember that these are simply my personal opinions on the products and just because the product didn't work for me does not mean it won't work for you. Everyone has different skin and different reactions to products. So if one of these if your favorite please don't be upset if I bashed it.

I hope you enjoyed this product review and stay tuned for more upcoming reviews. Don't forget to check out the blog contest and the Valentines Day series...
Wishing you all an awesome weekend!
XoXo,
Alex
