To be completely honest, I’m not super picky when it comes to mascara. I find that most of them get the job done, although some do stand out more than others. Recently, however, I had the opportunity to try the Make Up For Ever Excessive Lash Arresting Mascara which can be purchased from Sephora and similar retailers for $25.
The first notable thing about this mascara is that it really coats the lashes well. It only comes in one shade – black – but it’s a really great shade of black. My lashes look instantly darkened with a lot more volume. I have pretty long but thin eyelashes, and I do think this makes them look better.
However, this mascara is also really hard to remove, even with my fave Clinique Take the Day Off Balm. I feel like I kind of have to scrub to get it all off, and I don’t really want to treat my lashes and the delicate skin around my eyes so harshly.
Finally, I don’t love how this wears throughout the day. Even though it’s hard to get off, it also tends to migrate. By the end of the day, I resemble a raccoon more than is ideal. It never feels completely dry and does get kind of messy around the eye.
Overall, even though I adore this brand, I just wouldn’t recommend this mascara. The cons definitely outweigh the pros for this product.
