12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS - Oriflame: The ONE Featherlight mascara



Hello everyone! Finally some more blog posts in the 12 Days Of Christmas and I am finally talking about a mascara! So here are my thoughts about one of the latest mascaras being releasd by Oriflame - The ONE Featherlight mascara



I have always loved Oriflame mascaras. I believe the first mascara I have ever had was one of theirs as well, as my school mate was able to order one for me through her mom and that's how I got into the world of Oriflame! In the last couple of years I have tried so many mascaras it's impossible to say the exact number, but I can say that brands that have the best mascaras for me are L'Oreal, MaxFactor and Oriflame. In my mascara I always look for definition, volume, some lenght and a good curl hold. This one is a more daytime mascara if you ask me, but I still love it!

It promises to have the lightest formula yet and also to give you the most natural finish. It supposed to look natural and feel like you are not wearing anything at all. 

To me this was at first way too wet mascara and it clumped my lashes at first couple of attempts. Than I decided to remove some excess product and it got a lot easier to use and didn't clump lashes anymore. It gives me some definition and volume, though not much length and  doesn't really hold the curl that well. I have short and thin lashes, so I want my mascara to do everything at once :P Now that I use it for a couple of months the texture is just right, it never clumps my lashes again. It separates them nicely and gives them a really black coverage, which I appreciate. It doesn't dry during wear time and doesn't flake or cause any panda effect. 

The brush itself is quite big, with regular bristles and I can achieve even application with it, though I do prefer the smaller rubber bristles.

On me this mascara lasts really well, I can wear it all day and I am not exaggerating.  I have not noticed any fading or dry flakes falling off. However it does tend to dry up during the day and make my lashes really hard. So removing must be step by step and gentle. I use cleansing milk, press it into my eyes with a cotton pad and than slowly wipe away in downward move.

Why I like this mascara? Now, that the texture is not too wet anymore, I get the perfect application in one, maybe two swipes. It is super light, so I don't feel it on my lashes and it doesn't bother me at all, even though I am a contact lenses wearer. It lasts really well on me and still gets removed without any problems. Gives nice definition and volume, coats in pure black and the brush is just the right size, though it could be smalles as well. The finished look this one gives is most suitable for everyday wear, not as much for glam nights out.




An example of how mascara looks on my eyes. One eye is coated with mascara, the other one is without, so you can see the comparison.
