Eyes wide open!
For me, a mascara tube doesn’t say much, with many not fulfilling its promise! Here’s the lowdown:
I have very sensitive eyes, being a long term contact lens user with some allergies playing out from time to time, hence a very choosy mascara judge. Being tested by an ophthalmologist, I felt comfortable testing the L. O. V Fan effect mascara!
Looking at the slim, yet understated and inconspicuous tube was quite easy on the eye. A quick glance on the design of the brush inside was quite simple with bristle size on the smaller side whilst firm and sturdy.
The bristles are asymmetrical as mentioned on product description; a real plus for the even application that I experienced. The bristles managed to catch the smaller lashes quite easily, as they were well positioned! What I liked the most of the brush was that the mascara is not wasted and clumped together clinging to the brush, with a load of mascara sticking to your eyelashes. It made application easy, as I did not have to capture my entire lashes, merely half the length worked beautifully at enhancing my lashes, and creating the promised fan effect; the result being a gorgeous ‘eye opening’ effect!
The mascara formulation impressed me because the consistency was not thick, this again maintaining an even application. Although skeptical of an added mystery special ingredient used to create the fanning effect, I’m definitely convinced! I found it great that this ingredient was tolerable and suitable for my sensitive eyes, with no allergic reaction acting out.
It is definitely a long-wearing and waterproof product – lasting all day. It cleaned off easily with some make-up remover.
This product is worth the price, real value for money as one sweep through my lashes was effective enough. This makes it a product go a long way! It is widely accessible at Dischem stores, together with other L.O.V products, which you can try to find your perfect look!
