I hope you are all well! A few weeks ago the lovely people at Seventeen very kindly sent me another exciting package containing one of their ‘Long Lash‘ mascaras. I had never tried any of Seventeen’s mascara before so as soon as I saw the package I couldn’t wait to write this post and try it out so I could share what I thought with you! Recently I have just been sticking with the same holy grail mascara so it was interesting to try out a different mascara to what I would usually go for! I hope you enjoy lovelies…
I’m Going To Start Off With My First Impressions:
As soon as I opened the package, the classic bold Seventeen packaging grabbed my attention let alone the very sparkly packaging…ooh la la! The black box with the white writing definitely makes a statement! It’s not my favourite packaging Seventeen has done but having said that I do like how the packaging and the box match and I mean it sparkles so how can I complain!? Especially now Christmas is just around the corner (less than 4 weeks away eek) this mascara would make a perfect gift or stocking filler!
Moving Onto The Product Itself…
The mascara retails at an RRP of £6.99 which is available exclusively to Boots as they are Boots’ own brand. The mascaras I usually go for in the drugstore are usually a bit more expensive at the more £7.99+ mark so it was interesting to see how the mascara would perform for the price! Seventeen are such an affordable brand that offer a wide range of mascara to choose from so I will leave a link as usual down below if you’d like to have a browse at other mascaras they do if this ones not for you!
This ‘Long Lash‘ mascara has a long, thin brush which enables the wand to reach your inner corner lashes which I love. I also like how the wand has actual bristles instead of the plastic wands you find some mascara have. The mascara claims to ‘lengthen and build full intense bold lashes that last all day.’ Although I don’t particularly struggle with lengthening my lashes, having now tried and tested this mascara I can definitely say it added length to my lashes which was fab! I would say it gave some volume as the wand could reach from root to tip but I would say it gave my lashes a more natural look rather than ‘bold.’ As the mascara is called ‘long lash‘ it suggests that it is designed more for lengthening your lashes more than adding volume so if you are after a more fluttery lash look with a bit of volume, this mascara is the one for you! If you prefer a more bold look, I would recommend having a browse at their other mascaras that are designed specifically for volumising.
Going back to what they claim, I can definitely say that this mascara lasts all day without flaking which is definitely something I look for in a mascara. I didn’t find that I had too many issues with clumping either which is a bonus!
The shape of the wand is very unique which was interesting to use as I usually go for a bigger curved brush. As the brush is fairly straight, it was difficult to achieve a curl to my lashes but it definitely does the job! I found the thin, longer brush especially useful for my bottom lashes. I always manage to get mascara under my eyes when doing my bottom lashes which means removing it with a wipe which you definitely don’t want to do after finishing off your makeup which then gets ruined. Anyway, what I’m trying to say is I didn’t find this an issue when using this brush which was a revelation to me!
That brings me to the end of this weeks blog post! Thankyou so much for reading as always and I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know if you’ve tried this mascara or any of Seventeen’s mascaras as I’d love to know what you think of them!? See you in my next post,
Much Love, Amelia xx
