REVIEW: The Body Shop Big & Curvy Mascara

In the last few weeks i've been trialing out different mascaras in the hope that i'd find my 'perfect' mascara and i think i've actually been successful in most choices. However, for some that can't be said..

The Basics

Price?- £10.00

Size?- 8ml

Where can i purchase it?- The Body Shop instore or here

What does it claim to do? Came from here

'Big is beautiful. Our cult mascara sculpts, curls and gives lashes the appearance of up to nine times more volume.
  • Makes lashes appear thicker and curvier
  • Advanced curl-fixing formula
  • Smudge, flake and smear-resistant
  • Dermatologically tested
  • Ophthalmologically tested'

On first impressions, i thought i'd really like this product. The Body Shop is a brand i really trust, and i adore their skincare and bodycare, however, i'm sad to say they haven't mastered the art of creating mascara. The Big And Curvy Mascara certainly does add volume, however not the kind of volume i want. It clumps all lashes together without any lengthening effects, therefore you end up with only 3 or 4 stumpy wee lashes. A good look? Definitely not.

The formula of the Big And Curvy Mascara is extremely wet, something i hate in a mascara, however i feel the real downfall of this mascara is the wand. It has extremely short bristles and as you get nearer the tip of the mascara the bristles get even shorter, causing the wet formula to just sit there and clog the tiny bristles. One very major design flaw.

If you have long fluttery lashes already, this mascara may work for you. For the rest of us with short and stumpy lashes, this is a mascara to avoid!
