Hey my wonderful readers how are you all doing :) About 2 weeks ago I posted a picture of these new mascara's i purchased from the Makeup Academy (MUA) Website and i asked you all which one would you like me to review first and i got the same answer ALL OF THEM lol so Without further a do I shall do just that :) :)
First up is
MUA Every Lash Volume & Lengthening Mascara
It adds glamour, length and volume to your eyelashes. ‘Every lash’ is available in three shades – Black, Black/Brown and waterproof. This is the perfect mascara to add length with the first application and glamorous volume with the second. And by using the waterproof shade we guarantee you long lasting full lashes without smearing.
So I went with buying the Waterproof one as i like to have at least one or two Waterproof Mascara's in my collection especially for holding the curl in my lashes and of course for the "Emotional" time we go through in our lives :) 90% of the time i prefer using non waterproof mascara's as i feel they can be hard on my poor lashes.
So this mascara costs only £3 this is the more expensive out of the 3 i got which in my eyes is still more affordable than most drugstore mascaras.
This mascara is suppose to smell like apples but I'm afraid I didn't get any scent of apples only a cosmetic scent but who cares about that eh?
The packaging is pretty I like that they added the green lid to brighten it up.
The want is plastic and flexible. It is certainly a want that will get every lash and that's what I like. The tip of the want is rounded which is perfect for the bottom lashes and makes it less messy to apply if you are not a pro at applying mascara.
Now does it do what its says. Hmmmm I wasn't so impressed my this mascara to be honest. First application was a dream, it didn't take much to cover all my lashes the formula was quite wet so it took a good 40 seconds to dry just to let you know. How ever with the second coat I found the mascara was very heavy on my lashes and to be honest my lashes looked more like spiders legs than anything else YES i got length but certainly not volume :( Even after curling my lashes the curl soon fell which i hated. Is it actually waterproof well yes it did stay on after i chopped a strong onion and it was hard to remove at the end of the day. To be honest i will not be purchasing this mascara again as it doesn't do everything it claims to do. The Picture below i have only got mascara on no makeup :) :)
Next up is
MUA Extreme Curl Mascara
MUA Claims Extreme Curl Mascara shapes lashes beautifully from root to tip for long-lasting curl.
This is not waterproof and costs £2 to buy. Its also available in 2 shades Black and Black/brown. I went with black of course. I was looking forward to trying this out especially and i have fairly straight lashes and on one eye i find it hard to keep the curl in it which can be annoying. The packaging as you can see is a plastic mirror type tube. Its very lightweight and sturdy. The wand itself is is sturdy but has a curve to it. This makes application very easy. I actually liked the shape of the want as it allows you to get the very corners of the eyes in one go too.
I was actually surprised by this mascara and really enjoy using it. Now before i tell you why i was impressed just let me tell you that it doesn't do what it claims to do well not for me anyway. It didn't give the curl that i was expecting but boy it gave length. I was surprised and impressed at the same time. When i added a second coat it didn't clump up my lashes but added a little volume and a nice length. I wouldn't recommend this for curl but surely for length and pleasure to apply :) Its well worth £2 for sure :) The picture below i have only got the mascara's on with no makeup on please excuse that :) :) ;)
MUA Extreme Volume Mascara
Now i surely had to save the best for last as this is my favourite out of the 3.
MUA Claim Extreme Volume Mascara magnifies lashes for a spectacular false- lash effect.
Now in ordering this i made a wee boo boo :( I was meant to order this in Extreme black but i ordered it in Black/brown instead. I was a little disappointed as brown mascaras would not be on the top of my list of favourite shades of mascara's but i didn't let it put me off trying it out. Even though the mascara says black/brown it looks more like just brown in the package. This only costs £2 which is so so affordable in my eyes and amazing value for what we are getting. The packaging isn't on the most exciting parts of the review as its a very simple black tube with silver writing on it.
The brush is my favourite just the right brush to achieve the volume you are looking for. Its not too big nor too small it will suit any shape eyes.
I love how this brush picks up just the right amount of product for each eye. I was well impressed with this mascara the fact that it is brown it darkens my lashes quite a big. Obviously my lashes will not be extremely dark but this mascara suit me on days i don't want to make it obvious i am even wearing it :) To be honest my lashes look very natural when i wear this. Now as in Volume i have to say it does give my lashes a little volume but i found it to be more lengthening. I love how after each coat my lashes do not look clumped or look like spiders legs the formula is very nice.
I can not wait to try the extreme black i bet my lashes would look FABULOUS :) I highly recommend this mascara for sure :)
The Picture below I actually have a little makeup on hehe and this is with 2 coats of mascara
That's It that's the last of the Mascara's I got from MUA :) I'm surely you can tell which one is my favourite and which is my least. Which one do you think looks better. Have you tried any of MUA's Mascara's ? Which one is your favourite. I have more to try from them and will surely be reviewing them in the future. I hope this has been informative for you all if you have any questions please ask away i always get back to you :)
Until next time
