Before I begin, I have no clue what has happened to my pictures but when I rotate them they just stretch out like a clown mirror so I'm giving up on them.
Right. I had this mascara on my last wishlist that I posted (read that here) after seeing it used in a video on YouTube. I am a complete sucker for a gimmick and like anything that has a quirk to it. My wonderful man bought this for me for my Birthday and I used it straight away.
Firstly, I dig the wand. I have a dislike for plastic brushes (bristles?) because I find them too plastic feeling on my lashes. Plus I like volume and a bit of gentle clumping really helps that. I think I'm probably one of five people that hates Benefit's They're Real.
The mascara features a battery operated rotation to essentially take the work out of using mascara. It rotates two ways - one for each eye. Now, this part could be improved on by the manufacturer in my opinion. It's hard to actually turn the rotation off as there's not enough give so it kind of just slides over the middle section. Very annoying. I'm sure all of us re-dip the wand into the tube for each eye so doing that while it's rotating will end up stirring the product and kind of whipping it and I'm not sure that will turn out well. It's fiddly but manageable and you have to get a pretty good grip on the switch.
A warning - check the rotation before putting it near your lashes. I made the mistake of having it rotating the wrong way and it just destroyed the look - my lashes got pushed back on themselves and melted together. I've also heard some people take the battery out when storing it in a makeup bag as it can turn on. I never take mascara out the house so I don't need to worry about this but do bear that in mind.
As far as the rotation goes it's not insane and it doesn't drag on your tightline. If anything it sort of just dried mine out a bit but it was by no means a painful or scary experience. I definitely would purchase this for myself as it gives me the volume I desire and it's so easy to use. I literally hold it to my lashes and let it do all the work for me.
It's definitely going into my top three mascaras.
