I'm trying to get this post written before my meds start to really kick in; please bear with me as I drift in and out of a numbed stupor. I may be slightly incoherent but my pneumonia lung sure will be happy!
Anyways, I can't believe I'm just getting around to using this mascara from my September '13 Birchbox (oh who am I kidding… with a whole dresser drawer and multiple counter tops devoted to makeup
hoarding storage it's a wonder I ever get around to some of my stash) but hey-ho here we are! Unfortunately my feelings for the actual mascara aren't quite as enthusiastic as my initial excitement in trying it out.
The mally Volumizing Mascara is an extremely wet mascara… aka my least favorite kind of mascara. It makes application extremely messy (getting all over the skin around the lashes) and causes the need to be cautious while blinking—or, god forbid, sneezing—during the dry down. I do have to give credit where it's due though and say that this is, surprisingly, one of the most lightweight mascaras I've ever used. Usually wet mascaras cause my lashes to droop and feel quite heavy but, like said, that's just not the case with this one from mally. It holds a curl and really does open up your eyes by making your lashes look lifted.
So I'm torn; I actually really like the way the mally Volumizing Mascara looks on my lashes but, at the same time, I abhor how wet the formula is. It's messy, can be a bit clumpy upon application, and just isn't fun to work with. Ugh. A definite love/hate relationship for sure.
Oh well. I've got a feeling this is going to be one of those mascaras that gets better with time but, as I've said many times before, I just don't think you should have to wait for a mascara to dry up in the tube in order for you to enjoy it. Especially not when it's costing you a pretty twenty out of your wallet to take it home with you in the first place. You could get some pizza and cinnastix from Dominos instead and be happy now and the next few days (leftovers ftw) to come!
Have you tried the mally Volumizing Mascara?
Love it? Hate it?
What mascara are you using at the moment?
