I wholeheartedly agree with one of my favorite bloggers, the oh-so-classy PCD of The Pretty Circle. You simply can’t have enough mascara. That’s why, despite having at least a dozen tubes, I didn’t think twice about tossing L’oreal’s Bare Naturale Luminous Lengthening Mascara into my shopping cart at Target the other day.
Like a lot of mascaras, this one promises noticeably longer, luminous lashes smudgeproof, flakeproof blah, blah, blah. In other words, nothing we haven’t all heard before.
What makes this one different? It also boasts shine infusing minerals, conditioning vitamins and is both fiber and paraben-free!
Well, it would be if this mascara weren’t a bit too natural. Two coats and it looked as if I hadn’t bothered putting any on. The lengthening effect was minimal, and it didn’t hold my eyelash curl. To make matters worse, an hour after application it smudged.
So while I still believe you can never have enough mascaras, I won’t be adding this one to my collection. If you do, I paid $7.50 for it at Target.
