I have never been big on mascara. Even though I wear it every day… I have pretty short lashes. They are very pretty curled up so I never felt the need to use an eyelash curler and I jump from one mascara to the other with no big preference. Usually I remember the mascaras I really did NOT like, but I tend to forget the ones that do the job just right.
That was, obviously, before I started this blog and started to scrutinize everything I put on my face/nails/body. And for the first time, I used a mascara that really made me go ” giiiirl whhhhaaaaaat!” and I didn’t see it coming. Enter Le Big Show by Montreal-based Canadian brand Annabelle
I had been using Annabelle’s Espresso Lip Liner for years but had never picked up anything else from the brand when I saw their mascara offered in a promotional package with a Glitterama Liquid Eyeliner for 9.95$. I picked it up (mainly for the eyeliner…) and the next day I tried on the mascara and was blown away by the result.
My usually short lashes were not much longer than with the other mascaras I had tried before, the real improvement was in thickness. The formula is a bit wet and it requires some getting used to. But the wetness of the formula makes it easy to apply layer of mascara upon layer and build it up without it forming any clumps. When applying this mascara I usually have a hard time not getting some on my eyelids but seeing that it doesn’t dry too quickly I can wipe it up before it messes up my look. Also, I have not noted any smudging or flaking… I’me just say it: this is my HG mascara. Pow!!
Buy it in your local Shoppers Drugmart or any other drugstore in Canada.
