Which is a shame, because there are probably lots of gems out there waiting to be discovered, one of which is this Instant Definition Mascara in Intense Black.
This was sent to my by Adore Beauty and I think they may have converted me over to Clarins with this one mascara. Yep, it's THAT good.
My favourite part is the wand with it's precision definition tip. Have a look at the picture below, the tip is slightly longer and thinner, which makes it very easy to get to the corner lashes. After using mascaras with thick wands (e.g. MF False Lash, CG LashBlast), it's so refreshing to be using this type of a wand.
If you've read my blog for any length of time then you'll know I like drag queen mega lashes. Well this mascara gives you that, and more. Normally I do 3 coats of mascara to get the same effect that I get with this mascara in just 2 coats.
And best of all, this mascara does not go crunchy at all on your lashes, nor have any flakiness. Even at the end of the day my mascara still looks fresh.
- Makes lashes HUGE
- Innovative wand makes it easy to get to the corner lashes
- The colour is a deep jet black, none of that dull charcoal that some blacks can turn into
- Doesn't make lashes crunchy
- Price. It is AUD $42, which I suppose is not bad when you compare them to the Lancome and Dior prices, but it is definitely more than what I usually pay.
If you want super thick and defined lashes, this is the mascara for you. I will definitely be purchasing this, but maybe instead of using it everyday I'll save it for special occasions.
On another note, Adore Beauty is doing a Budgeting For Beauty survey and if you do the survey, which is a simple 3 question thing, there is a little surprise at the end. Hint (it may be a discount code...sshhhh), so if you'd like to take part in the survey click HERE. You have until 10 October 2011 to do it.

Have you tried any makeup from Clarins? Are you also like me, ignoring this fabulous brand for the funkier brands out there?
