KEVYN AUCOIN THE CURLING MASCARA RICH PITCH BLACK

I am a mascara fiend and if I was ever asked to choose the one item that I would never leave the house without, it would be just that - mascara. New to my collection from Kevyn Aucoin is The Curling Mascara.

When it comes to choosing a mascara, I am quite picky about the formula and the wand. I am lucky that I have fairly long eyelashes but because I am short-sighted, I also wear glasses, so I want a product that I can wear without weighing down my lashes and without smudging with my glasses wearing. So an overly wet formula is a definite no on both counts as I don't want to feel as though my lashes are going to stick to my glasses or feel as though they are being dragged down.  As well as the formula, the wand is also important too, I am not a huge fan of thick wands or brushes which are too densely packed with bristles, it has to be somewhere between the two.  So I don't think my demands are too much to ask for!

This Curling Mascara from Kevyn Aucoin, which is packaged beautifully in a purple ombre sleek tube, is described as being the perfect everyday mascara and it is one whose formula boasts an innovative protein base which coats and 'shrink wraps' each and every eyelash for a thick, curled finish that lasts - the word shrink wraps is exactly why I bought it, what a fabulous description that is!  

This is a formula I really do like, despite still working from home, I have had the joy of attending blog events online via Zoom, so have made the effort to not look as though I have just got out of bed!  The formula as I was saying is not overly wet, it does coat the lashes without making them stick together and look clumpy and thankfully it is also buildable.

The brush and wand for this mascara fits nicely into the not too thick or too thin category and whilst it is easy to hold and work through the lashes, the bristles allow for just enough formula to be collected and then applied to the lashes, all without over-coating.  

For me, this formula is smudge-resistant and it doesn't clump or flake. What I have found that once applied it dries really quickly but is really easy to remove using an eye makeup remover.  I adore the rich black colour which is incredibly flattering and I really like how it leaves my lashes feeling - which is not as though they are going to snap off at any given moment.

This is one of the best mascaras I have used for a very long time and at £22 it is worth every single penny.  You can find this Kevyn Aucoin The Curling Mascara right here*.

  7. I am totally with you on wanting a mascara that doesn’t smudge your glasses! The amount of times I end up wiping smears off my glasses or specks of black from my mascara is ridiculous. This sounds fab!

  13. This sounds like a great mascara option. I had a problem with my eyelashes a couple of years ago now I get quite bad lash loss whenever I wear mascara so it's a special occasion only item for me these days sadly. So I tend to opt for cheaper ones as they barely get used but this wand looks exactly like the kind I like too x
