A while back I wrote a review about the Kevyn Aucoin The Elegant Lip Gloss While I liked it, I wasn’t completely hooked so I delayed in trying something else from the brand. This time around I got to try a sample of the Kevyn Aucoin The Essential Mascara which I received at the Makeup Show.
Company Description-‘The Essential Mascara delivers seductively glamorous lashes you’ve always wanted in an instant! This plush, multifunctional mascara delivers the look of two coats of mascara in one easy application. Defining, dramatically lengthening and curling. Apply one coat starting at the base of the lash wiggling your way to the tips. One application is perfect, two if you dare to be dramatic.’.
Kevyn Aucoin The Essential Mascara Review
Keyn Aucoin’s Essential Mascara has a big brush that can pick up a lot of product and easily apply I to the lashes. The brush is also slightly bent at the tip so that you can easily get product onto the inner lashes. While I do have long lashes, they’re very straight so I’m always on the lookout for a mascara that will make my lashes look fuller, longer and bolder. When I heard that one coat of a mascara is enough to do all of this my heart flutters and my spirit soars.
While Kevyn’s mascara did make my lashes look ever so lightly longer with one use, it was in no way dramatic and they still appeared to be very straight. I decided to apply a second coat and found that my lashes were blacker and longer, but I still wasn’t impressed. My lashes were still straight so that I had to use a curler on them to make them stand out. The mascara did however, separate and define my lashes nicely. It also lasted for a good eight hours or so which is always a plus.
If you simply want longer lashes then the Kevyn Aucoin Essential Mascara is worth a try. If you want bold lashes, I wouldn’t recommend it.
