I was recently sent the new Bare Minerals Lashtopia Mascara* to give a whirl. With my current mascara being the trusted drugstore favourite Maybelline Lash Sensational, I was keen to see how a higher end product would compare. The Bare Minerals new mascara claims to be their
“best volumising mascara, providing 10x the lash volume – all while lifting and separating for fanned out, fluttery eyelashes. The all-day formula is smudge-, clump- and flake-resistant, and is our blackest mascara yet. Nourishing and conditioning minerals and moisturising ingredients keep lashes soft, while the whipped, mousse-like formula feels weightless and gives you extra time for building your best volume. The large brush features over 600 soft, staggered bristles to hold more mascara and coat every lash, while the tapered peak separates lashes from root to tip.”
I’ve been using Lashtopia for a few weeks now and I’ve been really enjoying it. The brush is on the thicker side which usually I’m less keen on, but for this product, it works well. With a couple of coats, I find my lashes a lot thicker, with added volume rather than length being the key outcome from this. I have however found myself still reaching for my Lash Sensational just to separate the lashes a little bit after the application.
For the lower lashes, the brush is a little bit too clumpy. It’s do-able, but I often find myself reaching for a cotton bud to wipe the product from under my eyes!
Throughout the day I’ve been pleased to see the mascara hasn’t transferred onto my upper lashes, as this is a problem I’ve found with a lot of mascaras in the past.
All in all, I am a big fan of the Lashtopia Mascara. I’ll keep using it until it runs out, I’m just not sure I’m such a big fan that I’d repurchase it myself!
Have you tried the Lashtopia Mascara? What’s your favourite mascara?
