Advantages: can be subtle to in your face lashes, set to 1 subtle enough for men even.
Disadvantages: none..but some people might not be able to get away with it set on 3
I Received This Mascara in the mail, as i won a Free full size sample of the product on Rimmel London site awhile back ago, and i'm not really big on mascara to begin with, but this product is very handy and easy to use compared to others.
the bottle is much thicker but shorter then most mascara tubes.
the bottle has the numbers 1-2 and 3 on it which you can twist to the number you want depending on what thickness or how ''long'' you want your lashes to be.
when you first get it there's a sticker that warns you not to turn the bottle past 3 otherwise the bottle falls apart..which tells they have tested this product before putting it on the market.
the cap is semi long and when you pull the ''wand'' out the end looks rectangular and has a thick ''brush''.
i personally always set mine to 1 but will turn it to number 2 if i'm going out.. because my lashes are not very thick and i dont want to have too much product on them otherwise my lashes look like spider legs...but for people with full lashes or wear fake eyelashes i think they could get away with setting it to number 3.
when i use number 1 it really makes my eyelashes look naturally fuller with out making it look like there's actual product on them.
(i use it from root to tip,not just at the end of the eyelash. ) it really gives a subtle look
i also definitely suggest curling your eyelashes a bit before putting it on if you have straight pointed downward lashes.
in the end this product is workable, and very customizable.
and the tube looks great not tacky.
i definitely recommend you get one as i think its worth the price 7.99 pounds at boots and superdrug , it's definitely cheaper online i think , if you look around.
the product lasts a long time as well, so you are getting something that is worth the money.
at first when using it it might take you 1 or 2 tries to get use to how to apply it properly ..as sometimes i'd apply an extra coat too many and would have to start over again.. it does a good job lifting you eyelashes as long as you don't over coat your lashes..otherwise it gets weighed down by the product.
also if Boys/Men want to use this product to give your lashes a bit of a lift , if you set it to 1 , its really subtle so you could probably get away with using it as it looks so natural..just when applying it don't be too heavy handed, do it in one full clean sweep, if it doesn't look right, remove it with makeup remover and try again.
