Barry M Showgirl Extra Volumising Mascara Review




If truth be told the main reason I originally brought the Barry M Showgirl Extra Volumising Mascara was because of the beautiful packaging, who doesn't want pretty items in their make up bag? But since using this product for a few weeks now it has become one of my firm favourites.

Formula: The formula of the mascara is quite creamy, if that makes sense? I really like it because I find it isn't wet where you can't blink for 10 minutes without it printing all over your eyelid, yet it isn't really dry where you have to keep pumping the wand in and out of the bottle in hope for a little moisture. I can apply this mascara and carry on straight away with other tasks and getting ready without worrying about panda eyes.

Brush: The brush is yet another thing I like about the mascara. It is a large curvaceous tapered brush with natural bristles which is perfect for really adding volume to your lashes and making your eyes appear more awake. I personally prefer brushes with natural bristles as I find that your less likely to get spider legs and poking yourself in the eyes with a plastic one really hurts!

Wearing it & longevity: This mascara lasts ALL day on me. I have worn it in the heat and in the rain and it hasn't smudged or budged an inch. The mascara really does add volume and length to my eyelashes but naturally and you can apply layers upon layers without it getting clumpy.

Packaging: I have already touched on the packaging at the beginning, but just to emphasise my love for it... it is fun, beautiful and will definitely look good on your dresser.With the material of the packaging it is a bit heavier than a usual mascara but I don't think it actually makes much of a difference when applying it.

Dupe: This mascara really reminds me of the Benefit Bad Gal Lash which has always been one of my favourites. If you have always wanted to try the Bad Gal Lash or want a cheaper alternative I would definitely recommend the Barry M Showgirl Extra Volumising Mascara. The Benefit mascara is £17.50 and the Barry M one is only £4.99!

Leave me a comment below letting me know your favourite mascara at the moment or if you've found any really good dupes.

Hope you had a good weekend.
