There’s something awesome about $3.99 mascara! Jordana Best Volume Extreme Volumizing Mascara is newly formulated and arriving at Walgreens this Fall. Remember how much I adored Jordana Best Volume Extreme Volumizing Mascara? Total cheap thrill!
How’s the revamp?
Jordana Best Volume Extreme Volumizing Mascara gets a slight revamp for fall with a new mega brush and a thicker, more pigmented black formula. I liked it the first go around and I was excited about checking it out again!
Fact is it’s still a great mascara but the issues some folks had with the original formula, which I didn’t have, I’m actually experiencing now but more about that later…
This is a larger, bushier brush for application that lengths, creates fairly ok volume, and creates a nice flutter of longer, thicker lashes. I like how it lifts my lashes up and out and the formula is so light they aren’t drooping half way through the day so it keeps curl fairly well. No stiff, crunchy lashes just nice fluttery ones! The original brush was bushy as well but this is a little larger.
Now when I originally reviewed it there were tons of folks that agreed they adored it but they experienced smearing and smudging as the day progressed. I personally didn’t. It wore great on my drier eyes. But fact is I rarely have problems with my mascara smudging.
Unfortunately this new formula does indeed smudge….! Yak! I can’t get through a two hour before without the product smearing on my lower eye and giving me a rather bad case of raccoon eyes. It also tends to smear across my upper lash line as well. By the end of the day I look like I had two few hours sleep or got caught in a torrential rain storm. Oily lids and eyes beware! Chances are it won’t last an hour on your lashes!
Jordana Best Volume Extreme Volumizing Mascara still delivers nice long lashes but they need to waterproof this bad boy!
The new formula (and applicator) pops up in stores this Fall.
