Illamasqua just launched their new mascara called Masquara (it's not available yet, but it will be soon). I like the little word play right there. If I remember correctly, they were asking their fans for names for this mascara on Facebook. I wonder whose contribution they used.
Here's what Illamasqua says about Masquara:
''If the eyes are the windows of the soul, Illamasqua's new Masquara reveals a heart of darkness with a formula that lengthens, defines and dramatises lashes to extremes...''
Here's a close up of the brush. I like big brushes ... they make me expect volume. Lots of volume.
Where to buy? Illamasqua online store (coming soon).
I could write about this mascara and it's features, what it does to me and so on and on, but I think it's best to just look at the photos. Here's a before shot with my bare lashes.
And this is after shot. I applied one coat of Masquara. I like the lengthening, but I expected more volume. On the other hand... where would it come from? I like it. It reminds me of my Max Factor 2000 Calorie mascara. This mascara doesn't clump, but I'm sure you could get a stronger look by applying more coats.
+ Big brush that's not oversized.
+ Great formula (nor too thick nor too runny)
+ Doesn't clump.
+ Easy to wash off.
- I expected more volume.
Do I recommend it? I think it's very hard to recommend a mascara. It's not like recommending an eyeshadow or a lipstick. There are so many different types of eyelashes and one mascara can't have the same effect on all of them. For me, it works. I like it a lot more than most of my other mascaras, but it's not a holy grail. To be completely honest, I still haven't found my holy grail mascara (I'm open to suggestions!). It's definitely gonna be my to go mascara from now on and you can't be sure I'm gonna post some eye looks with it. =)
