My first mascara post! The first blog I ever followed was actually Clumps of Mascara. It's what got me into reading beauty blogs and eventually, starting my own blog :)
This is the LORAC mascara I got in my HauteLook haul. I've never tried a brown mascara before, my tendencies leaning towards dramatic black lashes. The mascara was $4.99 on HauteLook, so I thought I might as well give it a try!
Here's the product description:
Get perfectly defined and separated red carpet lashes with this mild, non-irritating mascara that lengthens, thickens and protects. Enriched with Pro-Vitamin B5 to help condition lashes, this unique formula doesn't clump, run, smudge or flake!
The brush is quite big, with thick bristles that seem to really catch every single lash. It's not so great for control though. I had a few smudges of mascara on my lid when I was done, but it was easily cleaned up with a cotton bud.
The brown is very close to my natural lash colour, so it isn't as dramatic as my usual mascara look.
This is a more natural looking mascara definitely, but it still gives a nice lift to lashes. The formula is creamy, giving volume without any clumping at all. I was able to do 3 coats and it was still perfectly separated. It volumises, separates and curls, but the curl tends to drop after a couple of hours. It's also very mild, as it states, my eyes sometimes get irritated by mascaras but this one was fine. Great for those with sensitive eyes :)

Sorry for my dopey look, I was trying to show the lashes a little better -_-;
I think this is a nice natural look for every day wear. I may start using this on days when I'm just going to a kiddie playdate or shopping, but still want to look nice :)
Do you prefer natural looking lashes or do you like more drama?
I have lots of makeup posts this week, I will be swatching the LORAC Box Office Hit palette and some of the Urban Decay products I have (also from HauteLook).
