AMW Reviews: Bobbi Brown Intensifying Long-Wear Mascara

Happy Monday AMW Friends!  How was your weekend?  Mine was great!  I was able to leave the house last Saturday and do a bit of shopping!  I went a bit overboard and got the headache on Sunday!  *laughs*  It's okay, as I get to visit my mom and dad too!!!

Today, I will be sharing a review on Bobbi Brown's Intensifying Long-Wear Mascara.


The mascara comes in a gorgeous metallic mascara tube with a slim brush that makes it unique as compared to other mascaras I've used! 

Bobbi Brown says ---
Our longest-lasting mascara not only delivers lush, thick lashes but can stand up to the elements (and even a few tears) for up to 16 hours. For maximum volume and results, we've designed a new brush with unique bristles that easily reaches small lashes and instantly builds lashes without clumping. Best of all? There's no need for an eye makeup remover, because Intensifying Long-Wear Mascara washes off effortlessly with warm water.

Product info

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Ease of application due to brush size.
  • I can reach even the shortest lashes without messing up my eye makeup.
  • This mascara works perfectly for the lower lashes.  (Even non-existent ones like mine)
  • No eye irritations.
  • No clumping.
  • Lengthens
  • Doesn't weigh down the curl.
  • Formulation is just right, not too wet nor dry.
  • Comes off easily with regular eye makeup remover.
Cons
  • If you're looking for "drama" this mascara isn't for you.
  • Doesn't have the volume some may want.
  • This is indeed a long-wear mascara as mine lasted more than 12 hours, the downside is, due to humidity and probably oily lids, you may find some flakes that would transfer.  (but not too much)
  • Price.
Overall
Gives the lashes extra definition and length in a very natural way!  The strong point of this mascara is its wonderful wand that makes it easier to reach even the shortest lashes.  Formulation is just right so it never clump my lashes or weigh down the curl. 

Tips
  • Curl your lashes well prior to mascara application.
  • Coat your lashes as many times as you can as this mascara never clumps.
  • If you are the type who tends to scratch your eyes, take cotton buds with you as some of the mascara flakes may appear mid-day.
  • Remove with gentle eye makeup remover or warm water with soap.
Will I repurchase?
Yes.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone looking for natural-looking lashes but with the great definition and natural effect! 

Where to purchase and how much?
At local Bobbi Brown counters for Php1,550 (approx $36.00).

Before and After Photo
 

In this photo, it was shown that my lashes are longer and clumps-free


Side view
The curl of my lashes stayed even after 6 hours


Have you tried any products from the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear line?
Would you give this super lengthening, unique brush mascara a try?

I personally have been using this on days I wear minimal to almost no makeup as it gives my eyes the definition I want even without eyeshadow or liner!
