Lakme Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara

Mascara has to be one of my most favorite makeup item. I always buy new mascaras to experiment with and I finally gave the Lakme Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara. Phew!!..long name, a try. I had bought this on my last trip to India from Health n’ Glow, I believe. So, I’ve had this mascara for quite some time now sitting in my makeup drawer in its packaging. I finally opened it up a 2 weeks ago and decided to take this mascara for a spin.

What it claims: Dreamy or elegant, sexy or sophisticated; you get every look you demand. Increases length and adds fantastic volume due to its innovative longer term curl memory formula. Claims to be water-proof and smudge resistant.

Price: Rs. 450

Packaging: The packaging for this product is sleek and simple. The wand of the mascara is nothing special compared to all the other new mascaras out there. It is a simple, short with stiff bristles.

My experience with Lakme Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara:

The product elongates and curls my lashes but it does nothing dramatic. I cannot wear this product for long because my eyelashes straighten up after 3 to 4 hours.

You have to be careful when you apply it because it can clump. What I do is I wipe off the excess product from the bristles before applying the product. This product is waterproof, as it claims and it doesn’t smudge after it dries. BUT, this mascara can smudge badly if still wet and can get really messy. It spreads everywhere so quick. I always have to use a lash card when applying to avoid getting any on my eyelids. Aside from that, it can really open up my eyes but what’s the point if it only lasts a few hours.

Rating: 5/10

Pros of Lakme Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara:

• Elongates & curls eyelashes
• Waterproof but can easily be taken off with makeup remover
• Affordable
• No eyelash curler necessary

Cons of Lakme Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara:

• No ingredients list
• No dramatic effect (as it claims)
• Can clump
• Smudges (if not used carefully)

Would I buy this again? No, this mascara is just too much work and there are many better types of mascara out there to choose from. This one would be one of my last choices if I HAD to choose.

True…but it’s nothing another mascara won’t do. it doesn’t last very long…after a while my lashes are back to being straight.
