Found: Extreme Party Mascara

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.

  1. It looks fantabulous! I’ve been a loyal devotee to YSL False Lash for about 6 years now, so I think it’s about time for a change! Will be hotfooting it to the nearest BB counter asap! xoxo

  2. SOLD! That is some impressive mascara and it just so happens that I need a new one…may keep the price tag a secret from my husb though. He just wouldn’t understand!


  3. Oooooh. Love the effect. Thanks for sharing. I have a mini obsession over mascara, with three on the go at the moment and another one waiting to be tried.

    Two current favourites? Maybelline Define-A-Lash for everyday separated, not overboard lashes and L’Oreal’s Volume Million Lashes Luminizer in purple (it really doesn’t look purple next to my hazel eyes) which makes them look longer when I’m aiming for a bigger impact. I also have a Soap and Glory one on the go, which I think came free with a magazine. Very thick and gloopy, which gives a really heavy look and I won’t be picking up a new tube in a hurry.

    The Bobbi Brown one is now on my “must try” list…

  4. Ooh looks amazing! Mascara ia just one of those things where I have never found THE ONE so will be giving this a try!

  5. This is so timely, I’m going to be a bridesmaid in 2 weeks and was thinking of having false single lashes done but after reading this post and seeing the pic of your amazingly long lashes I am sold and will be getting myself to Bobbi Brown over the weekend. : )
