040. | Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara
I recently did some mascara shopping when the Nordstrom "Buy Two, Get One Free" mascara sale was happening. The first mascara I picked up was the Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara. I had received a sample of this a while back, and I wore it for about a month straight before it dried out. I remember wanting to purchase the full size, but the hefty price tag stopped me. Once the Nordstrom sale came around, I knew I had to get this. Keep reading to learn more!
The Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara is a black kohl-pigmented mascara. Bobbi Brown says that the kohl pigmentation builds volume lash by lash, instead of clumping lashes together like most mascaras do. The wand is medium sized, with soft, short bristles, and the product itself is extremely black. It is very easy to achieve soft, long lashes with this mascara.
I find the Smokey Eye Mascara to be much more lengthening than volumizing. That's not to say that the mascara doesn't give the lashes any volume. It does, but it's not going to give the extremely full, almost false lash effect that some mascaras do (like the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara). I like wearing this in the daytime. I find that I need a mascara with a little bit more volume when I'm rocking a dark, smokey nighttime eye look.
I would absolutely recommend the Smokey Eye Mascara to anyone in the market for a high-end, lengthening mascara. If you're more concerned about volumizing your lashes, I would pass on this. Click here to purchase!
