And I will also add that the advertisement shots were (as with ALL mascaras) pretty misleading.
What does this mascara promise
“Looking for amazing, movie-star eyes in just few seconds? Vamp! mascara makes your eyelashes look just as spectacular as fake lashes, without having the bother to wear them. Stroke after stroke, volume gets exaggeratedly oversize, for thick, full and ultra dense lashes. The result? Striking, no doubt about it! With unbeatable hold and no smudging. Available in 6 spectacular colours” Pupa.it
What I thought about it
I liked it. It did make my very lashes longer, no clumps and after a couple of coats my lashes didn’t become hard or clumpy. The formula is creamy and did not weigh my lashes down and the wand separated my lashes well and made the application easy.
By the end of the day I felt like my lashes still looked nice and there was no smudging or flaking but then again it’s an issue I rarely have with the mascaras I use.
My main issue with this mascara is that I did not achieve a spectacular result nor did I achieve much volume. It did elongate and separate my lashes well but I’ve achieved that result with cheaper mascaras before.
Sidenote: If my lashes look a little messy in this picture it’s not the mascara’s fault but, I have to admit it, I have very poor skills at applying mascara and I don’t have a lot of patience with it…But I’m learning because, as much as I’d want to, I SUCK at applying false lashes, so mascara is all I have to make my lashes pop. But while I am not the best at applying mascara I have achieved more noticeable result with other brands.
Now…would I buy it?
And when I answer this question it’s all about the quality AND price point to me.
This mascara will retail in all Jean Coutu’s for around 35$.
I do not think that this mascara’s performance justifies a 35$ price point. BUT!! Look at these other colors.
I would (and probably will) shell the 35 bucks for the Emerald Green because I think it’s simply fabulously gorgeous and I have always been in love with that color. So in this case (as in all cases) the beauty and originality of a color can make a difference. But I would honestly not spend 35$ on the black, brown or blue versions just because less expensive products can give similar, if not better results, depending on what you’re looking for.
