WHAT IT IS

This kohl-pigmented formula delivers high drama by creating extremely black, volumised lashes in an instant—an ideal complement to your winged eyeliner or smokey eye makeup. Plus, the long-lasting mascara holds its own against flaking, smudging, sweat, and humidity.

BENEFITS & CLAIMS

Creates extra-bold, dramatic lashes.

Features a long-wearing formula that doesn’t flake or smudge and is sweat and humidity resistant.

Builds volume lash by lash, for volumised, fanned-out lashes.

Combs through eyelashes evenly from roots to ends, while the brush’s tapered tip grabs small, hard-to-reach lashes.

“Our pro tip for achieving volumized lashes is to move the wand of this lengthening mascara in a push-and-wiggle motion from root to tip, which adds maximum definition.” Bobbi Brown Cosmetics

For me, the perfect mascara should add a nice amount of length without looking like creepy spider legs, tons of volume so I get a full lash effect without clumping together, and holds a curl. Even if a mascara formula states it does all those things, it absolutely cannot smear or smudge under my eyes. I hate smeared messy eyes. (I’m sorry Britney but I am not a fan of your eye makeup, the constant crying, tired, not having a wash #imightbedepressed look is just not for me)

REVIEW

BRILLIANT! I had really impressive results from just one coat. I found that the Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara lengthened out my lashes perfectly with no clumps, made them look thicker, and added so much volume. It stayed on perfectly throughout the day with no smudging or smearing under my eyes. It definitely takes a bit of scrubbing to get this Mascara off—I had to use micellar water on a cotton pad, then some oil on a cotton bud to stroke it off and then some more micellar water. No one said this would be easy, but for the perfect wear all day, it’s worth the elbow grease for getting it off.

WHY YOU SHOULDN’T BUY BOBBI BROWN SMOKEY EYE MASCARA

The mini variant of the Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara is usually part of offers and you can get it as a free product along with any other Bobbi Brown purchase. I’d definitely recommend you get it as a free product first, try it and then decide whether its worth shelling out the money on a full sized mascara or not. (Thank me later!)

Full sized mascaras need to be finished within 3 months and discarded ASAP. I am super confident that the tester size of 3ml will last me 3 months or more. 6ml mascara would end up drying out and I don’t want that! The mini’s are great for on the go, fit perfectly in your bag, usually free and you’ll get full use. When visiting department stores, the staff will usually hand out free testers if requested so go and get one for yourself!
