My recent purchase of Glamour magazine came with a freebie worth £16, oh how I love a good freebie!
I’ve never tried anything from ModelCo so I was super excited to try this, I have a bit of a mascara obsession and anything with ‘lengthening’ in the name always gets me buying!
There has been a bit of a fibre craze in the beauty world and I’ve been waiting to try it out for a while but never come across a reasonable priced one. To be quite honest I wouldn’t fork out £16 for mascara in a hurry unless it was amazing!
My natural lashes are pretty short and light so a fibre mascaras which is known physically lengthen and volumise my lashes is a no brainer for me. I envy those people with beautiful long natural lashes.
The packaging is quite plain and basic, it comes with a mirror on the back which is great if you want to use the product on the go and worth throwing into your ‘on the go’ make up bag.
The brush is also quite standard but having had a closer look there are lots of tiny fibre particles in the formula which make your lashes voluminous and longer than before. The formula has a dry consistency to it which is a little different than any other mascara I’ve used before. It does have a tendancy to flake so I would recommend you using two coats to get the desired look and to pack enough product on.
I also don’t think it actually gave my lashes any volume but it did lengthen and separate them with no trouble. I have to be honest and say I wouldn’t go out and re-purchase this product; it didn’t create a wow factor for me. I have used a lot cheaper mascaras which have given me a better result. However, I don’t think I can complain too much with it being a freebie and out of the other three free products (lip liner, eye liner and lipgloss) I’m glad I picked this one up.
Did you pick up a copy of this month’s Glamour Magazine? I’d love to know your thoughts on the freebies you got.
