The New Mascara I’m Pretty Obsessed With Right Now…


I’ve come to the conclusion that I’ve having a bit of a mascara moment right now, there’s a new launch on the horizon I can’t wait to tell you about, a beaut of a new mascara from Max Factor in the form of their Velvet Volume mascara (the review for that is also about to drop) and now the Nars Audacious Mascara. It took me a long time to come around to loving this one (I even turned down work on it as I wanted to test it out for longer), but after finally giving it a good run for it’s money I can officially give my verdict on this one. It’s making an appearance so of course it’s love, but let me tell you why…


Okay so the consistency is good, really good. Not too liquid based so you end up with five clumps of lashes, and not too dry that you end up with your mascara in your eye by 3pm. It’s also jet black. Any mascara that’s not super black won’t make it past one application run with me, but this one is super SUPER black after just one coat. Thumbs up all over for the formula. It’s not too crispy either so layering later in the day is a breeze.


Looks like it shouldn’t work, but some how it just does… There are different lengths of bristle that catch the lashes and give a totally un-even flutter. It shouldn’t look good, and definitely doesn’t sound good. But something about it just works! It gives serious length and volume. The only area where it needs a little help is separation. However I find that for me most mascaras need this when brand new (heads up a Max Factor FLE brush is the best for giving a perfectly separated fan of lashes – I advise always keeping one to hand) so in I go with a different wand at the end to break things up a little. 

The end result is a full lash look that almost mimics the effect of some of my favourite false lashes. Given the fact that I’ll do anything to avoid wearing lashes unless I absolutely must, this one’s got my seal of approval stamped all over it.

    Nars can do no wrong to be honest! Looks fab on you and I'm gutted I already asked for a different make for Christmas! I love the wand and brush like that, I don't like the bristles but this is perfect and a good black mascara is the absolute best, I agree!

    Oooh this mascara looks amazing! I've always been a massive fan of drugstore mascaras as I find they are just as good as high end, although recently I've been trying mascaras by Dior and Benefit and have been enjoying them. I'll have to add this one to the list.. thanks for the recommendation, your lashes look fab x

    This is one of my favourite type of wand, even though bristles look tiny they really do a great job! You really don't need to wear falsies, with two or three coats of it you can achieve full looking lashes!

    It sounds very similar to the Lash Sensational. It takes a long time to tick all the boxes for the perfect mascara for me and i really love that. I need to try the Nars mascara this time. Could you do a video or post comparing the Lash Sensational to this one?

    Lovely post as usual,

    I am here to give testimony of how i got back my husband, we got married for over 9 years and we had two kids. thing were going well with us and we where always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treated me and the kids. later that month he did not come back home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do,i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted traditional spell hospital for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 1 week my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still live me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that he casted on him that make him come back to me. my family and i are now happy again. Thank you Dr. Aluta for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. He cast spells for different purposes
