Do you remember how much I loved the Trish McEvoy Gel Intense eyeliner? I reviewed it here and used that pencil until it there was nothing left to sharpen. I also have the Trish McEvoy make up planner, which I have featured here and here. I love it and use it every day. It is safe to say that I am a Trish McEvoy fan and that is the reason that I picked up the mascara.
The packaging is lovely the black tube is metal which means it is cool to the touch. It is also a thin tube – thinner then other mascaras that I have used, which again, I am a fan of. It looks and feels like a prestige mascara.
The first thing that intrigued me about this mascara was the brush. It is much thinner then my usual choices – almost like a bottom lash mascara. The brush is also quite short. Most of the volumising mascaras that I have used tend to have a fatter brush and this is the reason why I bought it. To be honest, I am not really interested in volumising my lashes, I am all about the length. When you pull the wand out of the well of mascara, happily the mascara is not swamped in mascara. The well has been designed so that it gets rid of most of the excess formula which is fantastic.
Because the wand is so thin, you can really get to the root of the lashes without getting loads of product in your eye or on your eyelid. It is also amazing for getting into the inner corner lashes. The formula is quite wet, but also dries quite quickly and it dries to a matte rather than a glossy finish and the lashes dry to a soft finish. For me it is good but not great but that is because my lashes are kinda short and kinda straight. This is not the most volumising most lengthening or most curl forming mascara. If you want a false lash effect, this is not the mascara for you. If you have amazing lashes and just want to enhance them you should definitely get this. Alternatively, if lashes are not your thing, and you want an every day, pick up every lash, no fuss no muss mascara, this one is worth considering.
