NYX Propel My Eyes mascara review, before & after photos

We're still hoping for more NYX stands to appear around the country so that we can put all the things on our faces.  That's not too much to hope for is it?  Northwood pharmacy in Santry is my closest stockist and you can bet I'm doing my best to avoid there because you know and I know I'll come home with a bag full of products that I don't need but will love!

Today I'm talking mascara.  The Propel My Eyes mascara to be exact.  I'm making my way through all of the products I bought and was sent to try so hopefully by the time I've reviewed everything, the brand will be easier to find!

The wand is nice and thin and widens slightly at the end meaning that there's more product caught in the bristles at the end which you can use to give extra oomph to those outer lashes.   The formula is slightly on the thicker side, meaning you'll get more volume than length, and the small brush means it's easy to comb through your lashes easily enough.  But I'd hazard a guess that if you tried to apply a second or even third coat then you'd have to deal with a bit of clumpage.

It gives lift along with a decent amount of volume and while it doesn't add a huge amount of length, the curl it gives my lashes makes them look longer by default.  The narrow brush means I can attack my lower lashes easily enough without making too much of a mess which is always handy when I'm in a rush first thing in the morning.

This is a great every day mascara for me and for someone who loves really dark lashes no matter where I am or what time of the day it is, the Propel My Eyes delivers.  I haven't had any issues with flaking or smudging and it comes off easily enough with my beloved Garnier Micellar Water.

It's €10.99 and if you're going to be investigating the newness that is NYX and you're in the market for a new mascara, then definitely give this one a look.


  1. Sounds good - I tried the Fly With Me mascara but it wasn't The One

  2. Your lashes look awesome! This jus got put to the top of my makeup lust list!
