Ok, so I feel like I’m turning into a walking talking Bobbi Brown advert recently, what with the make-over I shared and the gorgeous lip colour I also bought. But today’s find is a bit of a fluke really, albeit one I couldn’t keep to myself.
A couple of Fridays ago I was heading off to a friend’s wedding, we were running a little late, Pete was getting grouchy and so I piled all my make up into my make up bag and planned to finish it in the car, base already seen to. No sooner were we on the motorway when rifling through said bag I realised I had left my mascara behind, and there’s no way I was getting dolled up to the nines to then going without mascara. Oh no. So like any self respecting woman, I directed Pete to make a stop at the Trafford centre and hot footed it into the John Lewis make up department to pick one up. It’s partly chance that Bobbi Brown is pretty much the first counter I came across and partly because I had heard of the Extreme Party Mascara and thought the name sounded like the kind of effect I love on my lashes, that I purchased one and left, in such a rush that I only checked that it was in fact black, after I had paid. The sales assistant must have thought I was mental.
Fastforward to the ongoing car journey, marital harmony restored and I started layering it on. And oh my goodness, the effect was amazing. So amazing that I felt obliged to take a photo and tweet about it there and then, with one eye mascara’d and the other not. I think it makes for a pretty impressive comparison.
Apparently Bobbi created the Extreme Party Mascara for women who ‘wanted the effect of false lashes without the fuss,‘ and it promises ‘Unbelieveable volume, endless build, exceptional separation.‘ I actually would say it’s better than that. It seems to curl the lashes, widen my eyes, makes them ridiculously long and thick and also gives the promised separation. The picture I took above is a single coat and you can build it for even more drama. Seriously, look at the difference right to left!
See why I couldn’t keep it to myself?
I promise, it will be the best £18.00 you have ever spent.
