The Wednesday Review: Buxom Mascara
Happy April! Can you believe how fast March went? Now that it's April I've decided to start a new series of posts here at Mingling with Megan called "The Wednesday Review." These posts are going to be about a new product that I've gotten and tried out and it's just going to be an honest opinion. Some products are going to be high-end and others will be drug store, and you might even see some products again in a "Disappointing Products" post a couple of months down the road.
Today's Wednesday Review is all about the Buxom Mascara in the color Blackest Black.
I got this mascara in a sample package of about ten others for a Christmas present, so it's finally getting use because going through mascara takes a long time! First off, I really like the packaging of this mascara. It's really sleek and the lettering of "Buxom" is pretty cool. That's where things stop being cool. Since this mascara came in a package with other things I hadn't done any research on it. I didn't know it had a plastic brush applicators, which I am not a fan of. I'm also not a fan of how long the actual bristles on the applicator is. They are essentially spikes that are meant to grab your eyelashes but end up also poking your actual eye. As far as formulation, I don't think the Buxom mascara compares to the Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara. The brush doesn't bring a lot of product with it, so you have to put on two or three coats. If you are looking for a lengthening mascara this might be good, but this is definitely not one for curl or volume.
All in all I'm going to have to give the Buxom mascara a grade of a C-. It's not the best mascara in the world, but it's also not the worst. I think if they changed the brush it would make a world of difference!
Have you tried the Buxom mascara? Let me know what you thought about it in the comments! Like this post if you are looking forward to more things from The Wednesday Review.
