AMW Reviews: Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara

Good morning! By the time you're reading this, I'm off to Tagaytay with girl friends because we want to unwind, binge eat and hike to Taal Volcano naked!  *laughs*

Can you just forget the first paragraph and remember the "Off to Tagaytay" part?  

I'm not leaving you without a review though.  Who says Saturdays are for lazy people?  Not to me...well Sundays are!  *winks*

It is a bit funny how I threw most of my mascaras away by bulk as I tend to open them all at the same time!  Well by 3s to be exact!  After the Revlon CustomEyes Waterproof mascara review, I also reached out to a cute-boxed Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara which I got together with my Mary Kay's Creme Lipstick in Coral Pink which I have inside my bag for months! 

(Note: this one is a sample size)
Mary Kay Lash Love says ---
  • Flexible, sculpted brush separates and coats even hard-to-reach
    lashes so volume looks instantly magnified with no clumps in sight.
  • Lashes appear fuller, lifted and multiplied, while looking
    naturally flawless, soft and healthy.
  • Exclusive Mary Kay Panthenol-Pro Complex™ and Vitamin E help moisturise, strengthen and condition lashes, defending them against breakage and brittleness.
  • Developed with strong pigments to provide deep color on lashes.
Because the brush is flexible and sculpted, it
  • Reaches even tiny, hard-to-reach lashes.
  • Separates lashes.
  • Is designed to eliminate clumping for cleaner and more precise application.
  • Delivers just the right amount of formula and deposits mascara evenly on lashes.
net wt.: 8g
Ingredients: listed on the box but it was too tiny for me to take a shot of.

AMW says ---
Pros
  • I actually like the simple, straightforward packaging, who would want curves around their mascaras packaging?  Imagine UDPP concept, the harder you can reach out for the product or maximize it.
  • Rubber brush makes it flexible and it easy to use for my short and sparse lashes.  
  • Does not transfer on my under eye area.
  • No flaking, no smearing.
  • No crunchy lashes.
  • Lashes appear very natural yet defined.
  • Does not weigh my lashes down.
  • Does not create clumps.
Cons
  • If you are looking for the SUPER vava-voom lashes, it won't go that direction as it'll always look natural no matter how many times you apply the mascara. 
Overall
Not bad!  I won't say this is a favorite of mine as I personally prefer vava-voom lashes, for someone with already good amount of eyelashes, this will give a super nice, natural volume and length!

Tips
  • Never share mascara with another person.
  • Do not pump the one in and out but roll the wand instead.  
  • Always start from the base of the lashes wiggling it upwards.
  • If it starts to clump your lashes, use a lash comb or spoolie in separating the lashes while "wet".
  • You can use a mascara protector in application or just the plain business card trick to prevent mascara from getting into the lids or lower lash line.
  • No sneezing immediately after application *lol* (I seriously need to add this tip on ALL mascara reviews.).
Will I repurchase?
Yes.  For clients that have short and sparse eyelashes like mine!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who hates the "big-wand" mascara. 

Where to purchase and how much?
Available at Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant by calling them at (632) 859-6211 or visit www.marykay.com.ph if you wish to know more details.  The Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara costs Php725.00 (approx $17.26)for full size 8g.

A closer look on the unique MK Lash Love Mascara Brush
If you've seen the Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara, they look quite similar.
The MK one is smaller.

Two out of 3 mascaras opened....
What's the 3rd mascara brand?  You guess!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

  5. Hi! It's actually P725 for an 8G tube. The sample we gave you was just that--a sample/trial size tube of 2.25 G. We don't sell the small tube. :)

    Hope this clears things up! Thanks for the review!
