I've never tried anything from Bare Minerals before, although I'm constantly seeing their products on QVC when I watch the beauty sessions, but I was recently sent the a mascara from their range to try out and review for you. The Bare Minerals Lash Domination Mascara claims to be a 10-in-1 volumizing mascara...What are the 10 benefits I hear you ask?
Volumizes, Lengthens, Thickens, Separates, Lifts, All-day wear, Mineral fortified, Smudge-resistant, Resists clumps, Fights Flakes.
The first and most noticeable thing about this product is the funky, bold packaging. The box is hot pink in colour with bold black fonts, and in a diamond shape. The mascara tube is also strangely shaped, and has indents in the top section for easier hold whilst applying. Which then brings me onto the wand... which has been given the name of a ProTwist180 - which spirals 180 degrees around the entire length of the wand. This is specifically designed to curve around each lash and coat from all different angles to ensure maximum coverage. I personally found the brush a little awkward and it was hard to reach shorter and corner lashes. Saying this, I think I've become to accustomed to my current mascara with a "spoon" shaped wand, so this is probably just my preference.
The colour is "Intense black" which is a very deep pure black shade, perfect for a dark, smokey eye look. The formula is quite wet and thick, so I did leave the wand to dry out a little before applying to my lashes to stop them from clumping together too much. I applied 2 coats(as I usually would) of BM Lash Domination and although I didn't find it lengthened my lashes all that much, it certainly volumized and separated my lashes as you can see in the images above!
The mascara contains nourishing minerals and a protein complex to give your lashes a little TLC whilst wearing. Talking about wear, I applied this to my lashes for a normal day at the office, and I found that it does not smudge or flake, and didn't irritate my sensitive eyes at all. So great for everyday and all-day wear!
Overall, this is a great all rounder mascara, and does actually meet all 10 of its claims for me! Although I think that people with particularly short lashes might struggle with the wand. The mascara comes in a little over my usual budget but still cheaper than the bloggers favourite - Benefit "They're Real", which this could be a very good match to!
What is your favourite mascara and why?
