Yes, so I've found my new favourite going out mascara. What's a going out mascara I hear you ask? It's one you wear when you're going out at night and have lots of eye makeup on and are allergic to the effort of applying false lashes because you know they'll mess up your makeup, so need a mascara that can hold it's own against your smokey eye. Phew. Say all that in one breath!
IsaDora is a brand I've overlooked in the past to be honest and I think I've only tried their nail polishes and that's about tit. So when the team, who know I love me some lashes, sent the Flashing Volume Instant Effect mascara to try, it was the perfect way to dip my toe into the IsaDora waters.
The packaging is simple, but it's the wand where the magic happens. Shorter than my thumb nail, this is the smallest brush I've seen on a mascara since Clinique's Bottom lash mascara and I've not seen anything like it before. For it's dinky size, it picks up a lot of product, hence why it's one for night time for me. I'm in the more is more camp when it comes to mascara and even more so when it comes to night time.
Now, because it picks up so much product, you need to take your time applying it and the plastic bristles make combing the lashes easy enough to prevent clumping. All of the photos in the blog show just one coat of the mascara, that's how powerful it is.
It gives me really thick, blacker than black lashes and it's definitely a mascara for volume over length for me which is what I generally go for when I'm wearing a strong eye at night. During the day, I do prefer longer wispy lashes. But these are fat bold lashes the likes of with can hold their own against any Charlotte Tilbury makeup I pile on!
For €16.95, it's definitely one to try out next time you're wondering what to try from IsaDora! Have you tried anything from the brand? What do I need to try next?
