So I'm currently interested in finding a new favourite drugstore mascara. Ever since my dearly devoted Rimmel Lash Flirt was plucked off the shelves, I've been on the hunt to find another cheap fucker to give me the same results.
I had heard a lot of praise about the Mega Plush mascara on the youtubes, so I decided to pick up a tube and see if it was as truly magical as the other gurus have said it was.
So the mascara claims to yield mega volume and length with this odd brush that has the ability to wiggle. The idea is that the added flexibility of the brush wand will allow for more volume and length when applied to your lashes.
The wand is fucking GIGANTIC. I found it incredibly difficult to apply this mascara without either poking my eyes or getting mascara all over my lids. I also barely got any of the product on my lower lashes without making a huge mess. Not exactly great for precise application. I'm not a huge fan of fucking up my perfectly applied eyeshadow.
The formula of the mascara is supposed to be a gelatinous texture. Overall, I just found it to be extremely wet. Between the wand and the formula, it's pretty difficult to not make a mess out of this mascara.
Here are the results:
Now this photographed application is after my third try of using this mascara, so I was really careful not to smear it all over the place like I had the first time.
You'll notice that my lashes are defined and definitely look longer, but they are not at all volumized and frankly look pretty damn unimpressive. My personal issue with the mascara is that it doesn't make my eyelashes stand out against my black thick eyeliner like other mascaras have.
The wear on this mascara lasted about 8 hours on me. It didn't fade, smudge, or flake out on me.
Overall, I'm not a fan of this mascara. It's messy and difficult to apply, and even when you master the application, the results aren't very exciting.
If you have a drugstore mascara you think I should try out, please please PLEASE comment below your suggestion!
