New favorite mascara alert

8

I wasn’t looking for a new favorite mascara the other day when I popped in to my local Nars shop to stock up on my current lip color of choice, but of course I’m always sort of looking for a new favorite mascara, and I decided to give their latest formulation, called Climax, a whirl. And I’m so glad I did, because this stuff gives crazy volume—like the kind where people ask if you’re wearing false lashes—and builds nicely with precious little clumping.

    I totally understand why people would boycott a brand for testing on animals. It must be emphasized, though, that any brand that sells in China, by default, tests on animals. So MAC, Clinique, Benefit, Bobbi Brown, and most drugstore brands (Maybelline, Cover Girl, Rimmel, etc.) and all the brands that sell in China test on animals.

    Totally corroborate here!! And if you wiggle the wand at the base of your lashes you don’t even need eyeliner…

    This looks great. I wish more mascaras came in colors other than black. Dark brown looks best on a lot of us.

    I’ve been trying to decide whether to refill my Thrive but maybe I’ll give this a try. I can walk to Sephora rather than wait for something to come in the mail….

    I do have to say that I like the way Thrive comes off. It takes some getting used to, the little “pieces” of mascara all over the place, but I don’t miss the raccoon eyes.

    I agree with you Heather! Dark brown is nice. Too bad a lot of us can’t buy Nars anymore though. Everyone should give Nars a second thought. Especially if you have a cruelty-free mascara is already working well for you.

    I got a sample of this from Sephora and it was Clump City on me! Your mileage may vary. The best mascara I’ve found recently, by far, is the one from Glossier. Cruelty-free, too!
