Since its release this mascara has been on so many beauty blogs I've lost count. After reading copious reviews claiming how brilliant it is, I finally caved and decided to give it a go myself. For many years now I've been faithful to my Diorshow Blackout mascara, but recently I've been itching to try something new. Since the Benefit mascara is currently the nations favourite, it seemed silly not to try it out. The packaging is simple and clean looking which I love and is most likely what drew me in. The wand itself I found a little scary to begin with as it's quite slim and rubber (I've poked myself in the eye before with such wands) but once I used it I was pleasantly surprised as it glided on smoothly. I have naturally long lashes so I wasn't expecting a dramatic change, but I was a little disappointed with the end result. I had to build on it quite a bit to get the look I wanted which can be time consuming. The one difference I did see is that it gives my lashes a more separated, defined look. It also lasts all day and doesn't flake which is a bonus. In terms of making your lashes visibly longer and thicker however, I don't see much difference between this and my old mascara.
