Let's jump right in!
Today we have the other 2 Ulta mascaras from my Buy 2 Get 2 free deal.
First up: Ulta's Amped Lashes Mascara, at Ulta for $10
What it promises: "Create longer, thicker lashes instantly with Amped Lashes Mascara by ULTA."
Picture of the tube:
Wand (plastic molded-bristle brush):
|Two coats- uh oh, little clump!|
|Three coats- clump gone. =)|
|Three coats-- notice the length!|
|With the addition of the Lash Extension mascara on tips~|
This mascara did a good job of adding noticeable length and also had amazing definition, which is a definitely plus to molded-brush mascaras. It didn't give much volume, which is a must for me, but with the addition of the Lash Extension mascara it looked quite nice! (Side note, I think I will forever do the 'lil trick with the Lash Extension mascara-- it just adds a little extra oomph!) I've also used it sort of as a lash comb for other mascaras that sometimes clump on me, haha!
Now! On to...
Ulta's Showstopper Lashes Length + Volume Mascara, at Ulta for $10
What it promises: Nothing, haha. The website doesn't list anything, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say "Length and Volume."
Picture of the tube:
Brush (kind of clumpy already!:
|One coat (right eye)|
|Two coats (right eye) -- Clumpy!|
|Used the Amped Lashes mascara to try to get rid of clumpiness.. (right eye)|
|Close up after de-clumping|
|Addition of the Lash Extension mascara!|
|Amped lashes on left, Showstoppr on right -- both + Lash Extension on tips.|
Bleh!! I hate this one. I mean... waste of time. The idea of the brush -- curved, thicker spaced sprial bristle-- was promising, but just sucked. The wiper left entirely too much product on the wand, and the brush didn't grab or separate lashes in the least. Do me a favor -- Scroll up. Memorize that tube. NEVER buy it. In fact, if you want it, comment and I will send it to you! Otherwise it's getting trashed.. I'm not even keeping it.
I have to admit, I have been pleasantly surprised with trying these Ulta mascaras! They cost a little bit more than (some) drugstore brands, but $10 really isn't that horrible. I must say, though, that if you were to buy 1-- get the Lash Extension! I am just tickled silly over it.
In a flash~
Amped Lashes Mascara: A great plastic molded-brush which adds nice length and definition, but not much volume.
Showstopper: No! Too clumpy!!
What mascaras are you all using? I need something new to try! Any suggestions??
Until next time--
