October’s Glam Bag was themed around bringing out your inner Bombshell. There was a liquid liner (eek!), a red lip laquer, bright eye shadows, and a hair oil treatment. But, after playing around with all of them all month long, it’s easy for me to say what my favorite item was…the mascara.
It’s by a brand called What’s Your Type? The style is called “The Body Builder.”
Pump up your lashes! Build colossal body with the biggest, boldest mascara to come from theBalm Cosmetics – What’s Your Type? in “the body builder”. This long-lasting, clump-free formula boasts a highly pigmented, deep black finish that won’t smudge or smear. Formulated with Vitamin E, Panthenol, and Bamboo, “the body builder” conditions and strengthens lashes to add length, thickness, and definition.
Everything they claim is true. Long-lasting? Yup. Clump-free. Absolutly. Adds length. You bet. But, the thing that I think I love the most about this mascara is the wand.
You know a lot of research has gone into those teensy wands. You’ve probably seen a variety of shapes in your favorite brand. I never really bought into that chaulking it up as a gimmick. But, after using this one, I’m convinced that the wand is perhaps the most important thing in separating one mascara from another.
Just look at that thing. The middle part just grabs every lash and pulls the formula through each one. The rounded end is perfect for getting those little lashes in the corner and bowing out the outer ones.
Seriously, my lashes have never looked so good. I don’t even need my curler anymore. It’s $19 and worth every penny in my book. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to go back to my “pink and green” ever again. (Kudos if you know what classic brand I’m talking about!)
P.S. I got this large size sample as part of my October Glam Bag from Ipsy.com. It’s a sampling program where you pay $10 a month to get sent large to full size samples in a stylish zipper bag each month. I’m a huge fan of the program and am always eager to see what’s coming next month! If you’re a beauty girl, I highly recommend it.
