I am rarely sad when I finally use up a product but I truly loved my Marcelle Xtension Plus Mascara which is one of the most lengthening mascara I have ever used, not to mention that it holds a curl extremely well, also! When I used it up, I rummaged my mascara stash in hope to find a product that could compare to it, so here is my thoughts on NYX Doll Eye Mascara in Long Lash.
Doll Eye Mascara uses a unique blend of natural oils, Vitamin E and nylon fibers to extend eyelashes to almost faux proportions. It comes in lengthening, volumizing and waterproof versions, but today, I am sharing with you my thoughts on the Long Lash version, which is a lengthening mascara and boy, does it lengthen!
The hourglass shaped wand is wonderful since it allows the product to properly coat even those tiny lashes in the corners of your eyes, while ensuring a nice lift and curl that lasts all day, even on my super straight lashes. I have not found the formula to be too dry or too wet, and that mascara does not even clump after three coats - because, yes, I do need three coats to achieve the desired "doll eye" look.
L - R: before and after
I absolutely love how Doll Eye Long Lash lengthens and defines my lashes oh so well while leaving them soft and flexible, unlike most mascaras. It is also worth to mention that I did not notice a single flake or smudge throughout the day! On the other day, I have found this mascara to dry out quicker than most mascaras I have tried, but by the time it did dry out, I had used it up anyway.
Overall, I think it is safe to say that NYX Doll Eye Long Lash Mascara is one of the best mascara I ever tried since it gives my lashes everything I am looking for - amazing length and definition, curl that lasts all day, no smudge or flake.
NYX Doll Eye Mascara in Long Lash is available for around $9.00 in most drugstores and online on NYX website.
