Illamasqua Masquara in Raven


I already showed you four new Nail Varnishes from the new Illamasqua collection. But there are also some very exciting make up products that I would like to show you. I got the chance to also try the new mascara and the Precision Ink. I also want to buy the new blush in Morale, so that will appear here one day too.
So today it is about the new mascara called Masquara. Love the name. The shade Raven is a true deep black.

This is what Illamasqua says about the Masquara: "If the eyes are the windows of the soul, our new Masquara in Raven (midnight black) reveals a heart of darkness with a new formula that lengthens, defines and dramatises lashes to extremes."

This type of mascara is exactly something for me. Most of the time I wear more dramatic eyes and only nude lips. I like to experiment with colours on my eyes. As you can see on the picture below the brush is quite large:


I will now let the pictures do the talking and show you how the Masquara looks applied on. Please bear in mind that I am a nail polish blogger so excuse all the imperfections :)

ONE COAT

TWO COATS

I have been wearing the Masquara for over one week every day now. As you can see it adds length and some volume to the lashes. You just have to be careful not to apply to much of the products but I think this will get better after a few days of use when a bit of the product dries out. What I really like about it is its staying power. It stays all day long and really is smudge proof. Overall I think this will not become my favourite mascara but it definitely is one of the better I tried.
Masquara is already available on the Illamasqua website. You can buy it here for £15.00.

  1. Možná, že dobře drží celý den, ale pěkně slepuje, viď? :( Je to škoda, má pěkný kartáček.A za 15 doláčů si můžeš koupit mnohem lepší řasenky, než je tahle! I ty levný jsou snad lepší- Maybelline Colossal ;)Vyzkoušela jsem Loreal,YSL a Lancome a žádná z nich nebyla tak dobrá, jako Colossalka.. Klidně můžeš dávat víc postů o líčení a tvých hot! :)

  2. Káťo, trošku slepuje, ale řekla bych, že je to tím, že je čerstvá. Já teda s drogerkovýma řasenkama moc dobré zkušenosti nemám. Moje už několikaletá stálice je YSL Faux Cils. Na tu nedám dopustit :)

  3. Tojono, vždycky ty nový trochu slepují. S drogérkovýma nemáš? Já si fakt nemůžu stěžovat na všechny Maybelline, jsou fakt jediný, který mi sedly. Až na tu poslední-The one by the one- slepuje taky, ale možná je to tím, že jí mám novou :).
    Já spíš pořád nemůžu najít tu stálici no.

  4. This is an awesome mascara. It really does add a lot of length. Since I am in the market for a new mascara, I think I am going to have to try this one out. Thanks for the review and the pictures!
