Todays post has something for everyone who loves mascara, for one mascara is a lengthening, the other volume. The two mascaras in question, 2True Pro WOW Mascara and FLASHeyes Mascara and they are prefect for those of you on a budget…
Being the massive mascara junkie I am I’ve had great fun reviewing these 2 little beauties! They are great for producing 2 different looks and both are very build-able if you want a more dramatic effect.
Here is some information about the 2 True Pro WOW Waterproof Mascara…
Stun the crowds with the WOW Mascara. The specially shaped hytrel brush with flexo elastic bristles ensures supercharged volume with no clumping or flaking. The WOW Mascara also comes in a WOW Waterproof version, perfect for an all-nighter or a festival.
The WOW mascara from 2True Pro range I am testing today is the waterproof formula. I do prefer a waterproof mascara if and when possible, I find they last better and smudge less across most brands I’ve tried. The formula isn’t too strong in fragrance and is a nice consistency for a volume mascara (Some of them can be a little on the thick/gunky side). Removal of this mascara is easily done with cleanser, eye makeup remover or even soap and water.
2True Pro Wow mascara doesn’t have my favourite kind of brush/wand in honesty. Its a fibre brush and dome shaped which means you can really pull those lashes out in the corners. The bristles are really close together but not once have they gotten clogged with mascara, so you create good volume at the base of your lashes without them all clomping together and looking like spider legs.
I am a ‘2 coat minimum’ girl, so I have swatched this mascara for you up to 2 coats and included how my lashes look before. The images show just how natural 1 coat can look I think. In fact, it would be perfect for school girls who do like to wear makeup at school without it being too much (I have already recommended this to my daughter).
Over all, I have been really impressed with the WOW Waterproof Mascara, it lasts really well on my lashes without flaking or smudging. My lashes look voluminous without being straggly. I was surprised when I found this mascara was only £3, I’ve paid 3 times that for mascaras that just don’t perform at all, this product is great for those on a budget or who just want to spend a little less and buy other things!
The FLASHeyes mascara from 2 True Pro is all about the length. The mascara is designed to lengthen your lashes.
The wand of FLASHeyes is my favourite kind of wand at present. Its a plastic type wand with fine plastic bristles which are evenly spaced along the wand. This means when you pull it through your lashes it gives good coverage from root to tip and lengthens them nicely.
The formula is really nice, it has a light scent but nothing too much and didn’t effect my sensitive eyes. Its not too gloopy in consistency and the mascara wand did not clog up either in between coats.
FLASHeyes is a lot like the WOW mascara in that its an extremely build-able mascara. I found it really hard to get this to clump (Even when I was at 4 coats!). My lashes looked good and defined and I also noticed some curl and volume too. As you can see from my images…
I was surprised to find that although I always prefer a volume mascara, I actually prefered FLASHeyes to WOW mascara on my lashes. I was getting good separated lashes with volume using FLASHeyes. Also, it really lasts well! I didn’t get any smudging with this mascara or flaking. Even after 8 hours of wear which I personally think is outstanding for a mascara that costs so little!
For people on a budget I really recommend the 2True range, their products are really good value, quality and well worth the small price tag – a perfect range for people just starting out in makeup, teenagers or those on a budget!
Lots of Love,
