I’ve been wanting to try the new MUA Every Lash Mascara for a while. But after I talked myself out of buying the Artiste palette (too many colours I already have or wouldn’t use), I never placed an order. So while I was on one of my favorite lunchtime outings to Superdrug (to try to replace my favorite hairspray that the mister used up, but that’s another story/post), I couldn’t help, but succumb to the buy 2, get 1 free. So I ended up with the Every Lash mascara (retails for £3) , the new cream blush in Dolly, and a backup Mosaic Bronzer.
Now right off the bat, I knew I loved the applicator. It is a silicone type applicator that coats every lash without clumping or giving you spider lashes, it’s also small enough to be precise for use on lower lashes. One of the selling points of this mascara is that it smells of apples (not sure why this was a selling point, it might just be me, but I don’t go around sniffing my mascara). It does indeed smell of apples, but don’t sniff too much or you will get a nice whiff of unpleasant chemicals.
I would say that is does add volume and length, comparable to my beloved Cover Girl Lash Blast Fusion. It also is a stiff formula on your lashes, really good for holding a curl. I don’t find the formula to be too wet or too dry.
So it would seem that I absolutely love this mascara and I thought I did. Until I tried to remove it. Now I bought the waterproof black and I have always used waterproof mascaras and not had a problem with taking my makeup off. When I tried to remove the MUA Every Lash, it would not budge. I used my DHC Cleansing Oil, nothing. I used my Clinique Eye Makeup Remover and nothing. I literally had to scrub at my lashes with product soaked cotton wool to get this stuff off. I tried every product I had on hand and eventually it came off, but not without irritating my eyes from all the scrubbing.
I am going to try to pick up a different eye makeup remover, any suggestions are welcome! I really love this mascara, but now I am wishing I had just bought it in plain ol’ black.
Have you tried any of the MUA mascaras? Are you a waterproof or regular mascara user?
