Expensive as this brand is, I love it. When I first heard of the Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara, I did wonder what the point was. Surely the smoke in smokey eyes comes from eyeshadow? Does it really matter which mascara you use?
Well, this mascara is really quite clever.
I first used it when I was going for a natural look for a family portrait. I was running late so had to finish my make-up in the way in the back of the car. I just grabbed the Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara and left the house.
When I applied it, it was much more dramatic than I was expecting. It really was a smokey eye in a tube!
This mascara lengthens and volumises but rather than leaving lashes spikey, they are given a soft-focus effect. It’s actually difficult to describe. Lashes are individually defined – absolutely no clumps. There are also no smudges but the effect is soft and smokey. I can even get a bit of curl out of it too. This is all without the eyeshadow.
The Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara is the perfect finishing touch to a smokey eye, or for soft drama on a natural eye.
I am difficult to please when it comes to mascara, especially those on the expensive side but this is innovative and I love it!
