I’m excited to share with you some mascara that I have really been enjoying over the past few weeks, and that has been adding great length and volume to my lashes without leaving them feeling all clumpy, as I find many mascaras to do.
The source of this mascara? Julep! This is a company I reviewed a while back that is known for their on-trend and eco-friendly nail polish. But they have so much more to offer!
According to Julep’s style profile, I’m an American Beauty in terms of my preferences. I was sent the American Beauty Volumizing Mascara in Jet Black and I opted to try it first. I was impressed to read that this product contains lash grown enhancement ingredients. It also has an applicator designed to give special attention to every lash to ensure they each look thick and gorgeous.
The Lengthening Mascara, which is from the Boho Glam collection, also has those great lash growth enhancement ingredients. The shade is a very dark brown, which gave me some pause at first. I always wear jet black mascara because in my experience, brown mascara just doesn’t have enough “oomph” for me. But I actually thought this looked great! I wouldn’t choose it for a night on the town, but then again, when does that happen? It’s perfect for everyday wear and the color is really flattering. I thought that the Lengthening Mascara and the Volumizing Mascara both worked really well, and truth be told, I couldn’t really see any difference in how each one looked beyond the color.
Would you like to see how they worked? Great! Here’s some iPhone shots from me getting ready to go to a church holiday party last night. First up, a side profile of my lashes with no makeup on. I’m way overdue for an eyebrow threading, I know…
This is a shot of my lashes once I had on my eye makeup but before putting on mascara. You’ll notice that they look a bit darker than they do on the side profile. I think that they just aren’t very thick, and so when you look at them at an angle on my face, they can get a little lost.
And here’s the same angle once I applied the mascara. I think it almost looks like I’m wearing false eyelashes here!
And finally, here’s another profile shot once the mascara was applied.
I think the mascara worked great! I even got a few compliments at the party about how nice my makeup looked. I’m really pleased with both of these mascaras and would most definitely recommend them. They seem to strike the right balance between adding length and volume and they leave that Twiggy look behind. Great job, Julep!
Don’t forget, Julep is a fantastic source for all sorts of fabulous goodies. I highly recommend their Maven program, which gives you the opportunity to get a custom box of goodies every month for a low price, plus special discounts on all products in the store! Take the Quiz and see what your style profile would be. There’s no obligation to purchase each month; skipping is a breeze, or you can opt to send your monthly box to a girlfriend, which makes birthday gifts a breeze, too!
