I have a confession to make: I am a mascara addict. I essentially make it a mission to buy a new one every month. Over the years I have simply never found THE one. Yes I do have my favorites, but like a 4 year old with a new toy, I lose interest quickly, and quite literally, the luster eventually lacks. And this is no exception. I was lucky that a friend of mine gave me Too Faced Lashgasm, knowing my obsession with mascara was an addiction we both understood and shared.
My excitement for pretty packaging quickly waned once I tried this mascara on. I did my research once I received this coveted mascara. I know Too Faced was a reputable brand with high prices, so I had high expectations of their product.
This particular mascara was described as “a voluptuous, fluffing mascara that conditions as it thickens to create dramatically long lashes with intense color”. Quite frankly, I was deceived. The formula simply did not stick, so volume was out, and as for length, I have had longer and more fuller lashes with cheaper brands. I gave it a couple of days and hoped for the best and eventually on the 5th day I gave up. It simply did not make my lash look long or full and most of the time, it looked like I hardly put any mascara on, after three desperate coats. I dont think it was a product defect since it was brand new but I could be wrong, but for its retail price and the abysmal result, I say nay to ever buying it again.
