This mascara was a bit of letdown for me. The four in one benefits claim to be mascara, volume, curl, length and “complete lash care.” The complete lash care comes from a lash boost formula that is supposed to provide nutrition, revitalization and fortification. This sounds like something I should add to my morning smoothie! My lashes did feel conditioned with this mascara, so this claim worked for me.
|Please forgive the horrible eye lining job I did!|
I also found it to be mildly curl producing, so I will give them that. The lengthening was also fine—good, not extraordinary. I was really let down on volume. I didn’t feel like this mascara gave me anything in the way lushness and volume.
My biggest beef with this mascara is with the wand. Now, I was using a mini size, and I will give Givenchy the benefit of the doubt that it may work better in a full sized wand. Anyway, it has these three balls, which I have imperfectly captured in the photo below.
The balls made it really difficult to capture the finer outsize corner lash, dangerous to get inside corner lashes, and an impossible mess on the bottom lashes. It was just an all around, frustrating wand to use.
Bottom lash line: Ok formula, but what’s the opposite of a magic wand?
Givenchy claims to be cruelty-free.
