Advantages: All your requirements in one mascara
Disadvantages: That it eventually runs out :)
My boyfriend bought this mascara for me for Christmas...purely because of the name, but I was delighted to find that it really works.
I used to tend to just wear false eyelashes, because I had no luck finding a decent mascara-they may work the first time they were applied, but the effects weren't consistent with each application for very long at all. As a result, I'd rather stick on the falsies than spend ridiculous money on a different so-called 'wonder' mascara every few weeks that usually turned out to be an expensive mistake.
When I found 'Get Bent' in the bottom of my stocking, after my sniggers had subsided, I gave it a go. I found the angled brush much easier to use than other brands-it really reduced accidental pokes that would usually result in black smears or running panda eyes.
I was overjoyed to see that for the first time in years, I had proper eye lashes! They were thicker, longer, darker, and curled up more, which was great because when it comes to buying mascara,I find that I have to choose Thicker OR longer and so on-this one does it all, which is fantastic, as at one point, (before the falsies) I was even using a few different brands at once to get the look I was trying for!
I'm aware that mascaras, like perfume,work very differently from person to person, but it's worth bearing in mind that I previously had no luck with any brand, but this one was dramatic, and I even thought that my eyelashes look longer in general without mascara since I've begun using it.
I still have the same tube that I started on Christmas day,and even though it's nearing the end now, it's STILL as good as it was when it was freshly opened. And the funky packaging is an added bonus and means it doesn't get lost in the depth of your make-up bag.
Thanks for reading :)
Summary: A really good mascara-dramatic and long lasting. Great packaging and great name.
