Who is ready to kick off the new year with a BANG?! Julep sure as heck is! I can't BELIEVE how amazing some of these deals are. <3
As usual, I was way too excited to try the newest Influenster product to do an unboxing >_> BUT I hope you all don't mind as I go on and review anyway without it. :)
What is the product?
None other than CoverGirl's newest mascara by lashblast:
Full Lash Bloom.
What can it do?
According to the packaging, it:
Initial Impression - Pics
My first impression is that the wand tip [brush] looks to be very flexible, the detailing tip looks a lot more functional, and may remove the excess product build up some flat-tipped mascara wands have. The pattern of the wand bristles being short and long looks like it will separate and fill in every last millimeter of lash, unlike standard bristle-brush wands. When dipped, wand was evenly and thoroughly coated, with almost no noticeable clumping of excess product on the bristles. Formula was very very creamy, without being oily. No harsh smell, unlike some other name-brand "full but natural" mascara I've tried.
Before & After, First coat
As one of those who is not among the OMG WOW natural lash length party of people, mascara is a key part of my make-up regime. I applied full make-up before putting the mascara on. Shown below is naked lashes on the left, and the initial coating/swipe of Bloom.
Final Look and Thoughts
After applying the first coat to both eyes, I immediately went back and put a second coat, lifting and separating the lashes even more. The first coat seemed to put a base layer of product on but didn't do much in the department of lifting and separating. The second coat however was almost magical. I easily saw 3x the length of my naked lashes, 3x the fullness, and a serious improvement to the separation.
After the mascara fully dried, which wasn't maybe half an hour later, I touched my lashes, swiping back and forth. With standard mascara this would put flakies on my finger, in my eyeballs, and would cause tightness and tugging at my eyelid from the stiffness and clumping that would be there. With Lash Bloom, my lashes still feel very soft, release no flakies upon my eyeballs OR fingers, and cause no stiffness or tightness when touching or just wearing. I can't even tell I have mascara on. When touching, it honestly feels like natural lashes, but fuller, as if I miraculously grew a few hundred more lashes overnight and they decided to be super long and amazing.
Would I buy it?
Without hesitation, absolutely YES YES YES.
Where can YOU buy it?
Full Lash Bloom is available at Walmart, for $6.99 - $8.99. Make sure to check your local store!!
"I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes."
Or, you know, at least 3 months worth ;D Surprise the lady in your life [or all of them if you can't pick just one!] with the gift of Maven. And why not give her the gift that gives beyond Christmas, and buy a pre-paid 3 month gift of Maven?
Why should you opt for the 3 month pre-paid option? If you like saving money, it's the best option for you. Once upon a time, all Maven boxes were only $19.99... but you had 0 customization, and often Mavens felt torn between half of one box, and half of another.
Julep heard the cries of its torn Mavens and gave a complete makeover to the program! Now it's EVEN better, but monthly costs have risen slightly, due to extended processing times per order [as expected, given EACH box is perfectly tailored to YOUR wishes! No more assembly-line cookie cutter boxes here!]
But, if you pre-pay for 3 months ahead of time, you get ALL the customization, and none of the extra cost! You'll only pay $19.99 per month; That's $15 you've got to spend on, for example, add-ons to your boxes to get everything you want and more!
Each month between the 20th and 24th, your gift recipient can log in just like a normal Maven, customize her box to exactly what she wants, and it arrives just like every other Maven. No lower-quality "gift" products here! :)
