Bobbi Brown Extreme Party Mascara

Mini Bobbi Brown Extreme Party Mascara Included in 3 Piece Set @ QVC

Bobbi Brown is a brand I've recently really got into and have enjoyed using many of their products. I was given a gift set from them as a present and was excited to try out what they've dubbed their "boldest mascara ever". I would have never really gone to Bobbi Brown for a mascara so took this as an opportunity to try something I would have never normally have gone for.

The brush is a regular tapered bristle brush with dual fibers designed to grab every lash.  When first applying the mascara I noticed it was quite wet, which is nice as I hate a dry mascara! The wand did definitely feel like it was grabbing for my lashes and really coating them well. After I coated my lashes once the result were high in volume, clump free and separated lashes. I usually apply around 2-3 coats of mascara as I like my lashes to be very full and long. I instantly noticed after continuing to apply coats that my lashes were gradually looking more dramatic but not as if they weighed down and clumped up with mascara. This is probably the best mascara I've used for being able to build up without getting clumpy and messy. I found the mascara to not smudge too heavily throughout the day and can be removed effortlessly.

Overall I really like this mascara, it's perfect for everyday use and really does create a nice pretty yet glamorous looking lash. The one downfall is that it didn't really thicken my lashes up too much, I'm not sure if I'd prefer this in conjunction with other mascaras to thicken the lashes more. The full size 4.2ml of this product comes in at £18.00, which is definitely a lot more than I usually spend on a mascara. I'm not 100% sure about how I feel about paying £18.00 for a mascara, even though I do really enjoy using it. 

Bobbi Brown have a really handy mascara guide which you can find linked here so you can find the perfect Bobbi mascara for you.

Hope your all well!
