“ Brand: La Femme / Type: Mascara / Suitable for: Eye „
Payed £1 for this mascara product from a local clothes shop and really was shocked the first time that I tried it as it worked so well! Better than some of the more expensive brands of mascara that I have used.
Not very many colours to choose from though but the black is really black so thats really good. It gives volume to your lashes and also improves length as well. when it comes to washing it off at night time it sort of sticks to your eyelashes so you have to sort of scrub a bit which can also irritate eyes.
I have seen this for £2.49 from amazon and I would not pay that for it as its not worth it, but for £1 cannot really go wrong. Its just down to you on whether you can be fussed with scrubbing your eyes after each use. Would be good for swimming though.
La Femme Make up product
I usually buy the diorshow waterprioof mascara but like I said in my previous review, I have just started university, so I need cheaper alternatives to my usual products. I have the product in black and I bought this one off ebay.
It comes in a navy blue case and instead of the case being made of/feeling like plastic, it feels like rubber on the outside of the mascara tube/case, which is a bit odd, but I like it as it gives more grip.
*Mascara wand/brush and application of the product*
I really don't like mascaras that have tiny brushes as it is more time consuming and it is just more fiddly. This mascara has a medium size brush which is good and the bristles of the product are spaced apart which I like too.
It is really easy to apply and the application of the product and the price are the best things about this product to be honest. It is super easy to apply, it gives an even coating of product, it leaves little clumps, it gives good volume and it applies smoothly. This is the best thing about the product, it is just a bit down hill from here.
*Is it waterproof?*
It does say that it is waterproof and that is why I got it (and because it was so cheap) and with every product that I buy that says it is waterproof (Such as the elf liquid waterproof eyeliner which I have previously reviewed and it is great and also the dior mascara - which both passed my waterproof test)!
My waterproof test for the product did not go too well. I applied the mascara and then I let it dry for about 10 minutes and I wiped my finger over my lashes and some of the product came off slightly already.
Then I had a shower with the mascara on and then did the same thing. Some of the mascara was under my eyes and then transfered onto my finger, so for my test it is not very waterproof and I would not use this product as it is not very waterproof! Also while it was drying it was a bit flaky too
I bought this product from ebay as it was really cheap under £2, (so I should not have expected a lot from it) but overall it does apply really evenly, with little/no clumps and it gives slight volume and definition too. But there are only 2/3 bad things about it including, it is a bit flaky, it is not very waterproof and it smells like acrylic paint!
*Applies really well - smooth, even coats, no clumps, slight volume and good definition
*Very cheap at under £2!
*Rubber exterior case
*Medium size brush - less time consuming to apply
*Smells like acrylic paint
*Not very waterproof
*Smudges slightly if touched
*Cheap looking packaging - probably because it was cheap!
One star for the price and the other star for the application.
Thank you for reading my review
