New Holy Grail Mascara Discovered!

I am always looking for new mascara to give my eyes an almost-fake fringe. It's not often that one mascara lengthens, adds volume and is pitch black. I almost always layer my mascara to get what I want, even from my favorites.

However, I recently received a sample of the new Sephora Collection Outrageous Volume Mascara. This little gem is one of the many new products to be unveiled as part of a major overhaul of their signature line.

The packaging for this certainly isn't streamlined, but that is pretty much my only complaint. The brush is made up of short, plastic bristles, including a little "bristled cap" on the end. It's not quite a ball, like the Givenchy mascara, but the idea is similar. It allows you to get every single lash. One coat of this mascara gives you amped up daytime lashes. Two full coats is almost too much for even my tastes. If you go the two coats route, you might want to let the first dry completely before applying the next coat. This isn't exactly the fastest drying lash enhancer on the market. But it is one of the darkest mascaras I've run across in a bit.

 (No Mascara)

I have not had problems with my mascara flaking on the top lashes, but did have a little flaking when I used it on my bottom lashes, which is usually how it goes for me if I use any kind of thickening product on the bottom.

(One coat of mascara. This is after about 8 hours of wear.)

For $15, this mascara is kind of blowing me away. I think it's getting added to the Holy Grail list. Have you tried it? What did you think?

I "bought" this with my VIB Points.

    They had the Tarina Tarantino today as a VIB choice so I took that. I've never had good luck with Sephora brand but I think they are coming around. 

  2. wow! I might need to pick this up! your lashes look fab!

  3. the wand kinda looks like the wand from max factor's false lash effect, only the tip of this one has a rounded edge with bristles.
    if you've tried the max factor false lash effect, is this formula for this sephora one similar to max factor's?

  4. I will definitely give this one a try. I am hooked on Buxom Lash so I hope Sephora brand works as well for me as it did for you!
