“ Brand: 2True / Type: Mascara / Suitable for: Eye „
I went through a bit of a makeup phase a few months ago and this was the result of another shopping spree.
This came in a clear tube with a black lid and purple writing, although you could tell it was drugstore it does not look as cheap as it is. The packaging is also very sturdy (lasting in my handbag) and the top does not get stuck as happens with bargain mascaras.
I don't know whether I should really be expecting any more here as its a glitter mascara but the whole thing just felt very childlike. The mascara is quite watery and adds zero length, volume or curl to the lash. There is quite a lot of glitter in the product but this also fails to adhere to my lashes. I wanted it to add a quick swipe of glitter over additional mascara but the piece of glitter that do adhere are too big and flake off landing on my skin this is not a good look. The colour I picked was silver.
This did work quite well when added glitter to my hair however and washed out very well. This was not my intended use though and I only tried it to get some use out of it.
Price and Availability
This can only be bought from superdrug stores or online. As there is a superdrug in most towns I would think this was an easy purchase. This was £1.99 but there is normally a deal of 3 for £5 on these products.
This mascara is not for adults and may suit the tween market better as it is pocket money friendly. 2true do have some great products in their range it is just a shame this could not be one of them.
I will not repurchase.
I tested out this product ages ago before attending a Christmas party because I wanted it to match my outfit, and it was very cheap, but I was really disappointed in how it turned out.
I thought that this product was similar to an ordinary black mascara, but in a glittery silver instead of the black, but the texture and everything else about the product was very different to an ordinary black mascara. Instead of coating my lashes and making them look longer or more defined, the product just smothered my lashes in the mascara, which was very gloopy, and stuck in clumps to my lashes.
As soon as I tried out this product I put it in the bin, it made all of my eyelashes stick together, and weighed them down, so if it made any difference to the length at all, it made them shorter instead of longer.
The product also smudged very easily and made my eyes look really horrible and very unnatural, I thought that the product would just add a slight sparkle.
The perfect finishing touch to let your eyes stand out!
