That was a long post title…
Anyway… When I was back home, my (13 year old) little sister had some amazing mascara on. I asked her what brand it was and she said how she combines two to get the benefits of both of their abilities. It’s a pretty cool idea – one I hadn’t thought of before. So, I decided to try it out with these two mascaras that I had previously thought were kinda duds…
First up is Rimmel’s Sexy Curves mascara. I bought this a while back when I made a little back track from department store mascaras to drug store ones. As you can see, the brush is fairly uniquely shaped.
It makes my eyelashes very long – but also clumps them all together. It’s easy to use though – and the ball on the end means that it’s really easy to get into the corners of your eyes and get those little lashes on the ends.
On its own it’s … ok. Just ok. Probably worth the money but nothing to write home about. You’ll get long lashes but barely any body (although it says that it gives “full volume and curves”…)
Me Me Me Fat Cat mascara – I bought this when I went home to England around the Jubilee. I’d never heard of the brand Me Me Me (or is it MeMeMe?) and it was really cheap in Superdrug so I thought I’d give it a whirl.
The brush is nothing special, but it works quite well on my lashes, really separating them and giving them full volume. However, it does nothing to lengthen them. On its own it is pretty meh but well worth the money (I think it was under 5 pounds).
When I put on the Sexy Curves mascara on top of the Fat Cat mascara… it combines to make ONE AWESOME MASCARA! You get all the body of the Fat Cat, with the length of the Sexy Curves! Genius! And since both mascaras are pretty cheap, it’s not really breaking the bank at all.
Do you combine mascaras? If so, which ones?
