Bless be! I think I discovered my HG Mascara! It Cosmetics Hello Lashes 5-in-1 Volumizing Mascara dashed across my dash about two weeks ago and every after that faithful day its remained a daily staple. I don’t typically commit to mascaras easily but this is truly a brilliant one.
You must try it!
It Cosmetics Hello Lashes 5-in-1 Volumizing Mascara is well on its way to becoming my HG (holy grail mascara) of choice but I’m so saddened it appears I may be the only one that feels that way. I read through a ton of reviews on QVC’s site but not many people got along as nicely with this as I did.
Supposedly, they market this as a lash primer, lash-enhancing serum, tint, and lash comb/curler all in one. It gives me thick, curly, full, longer lashes in a single swipe with a really great blacker than black pigment. The black shade is heavily pigmented so not only will you get drama from the mascara formula itself but also the color provides a bold, beautiful finish to lashes.
This is a straight line applicator with tiny spikes which grab onto lashes pulling them upward and out for a longer, fuller look with plenty of curl. The end of the brush has a smaller “lash ball” for detailing that’s designed to reach inner and outer corner lashes easily (or bottom lashes). I had no issues with flaking, fading, or smudging however, this does have a longer dry down period…sounds weird but you’ll want to not blink too much as it dries down to avoid mascara getting on your lower eye area.
It provides me with great length so if you wear glasses this might not be the mascara for you as it def pulls them upwards and out tripling the size of your lashes in a swipe or two. Unlike many mascaras it actually provides both length and volume so my lashes appear fuller and fatter. This is interesting due to the unusually skinny applicator as one wouldn’t expect such great volume from an applicator like this. But it delivers so who am I to complain?
After application my lashes aren’t left stiff or crunchy. It’s surprisingly lightweight! The conditioning portion of the formula includes peptides, collagen, proteins, jojoba, green tea, acai, and a heaping helping of vitamins A, C, E, and B5. It also contains a lash enhancing serum…I’m unsure if this is working as of yet as I’ve been using it only two weeks.
Overall, I’d say this mascara is a keeper. I liked it very much and can easily see it becoming a staple in my daily looks. Any face photos I did over the last two weeks would include this mascara and I noticed two or three people that asked me in the comments if I was doing anything different with my mascara. Yup, that would be this I was using.
Def worth checking out.
I’m Muse Approving it.
It Cosmetics did a super job with this one.
