How are you doing today? I am back to share another Flower delicacy with you all. Last year I went crazy while shopping for cosmetics for my relatives and friends and this Flower product is an outcome of one such haul. I received it in a gift basket and found it perfect for my college/office going relatives and bought every piece available in my local shop. However, I am not personally interested to get it again as I have started to like bold & dramatic make up these days, thanks to you all! So, let’s get started with Flower LM5 Intense Black Extreme Measures Lengthening Mascara today.
Flower Extreme Measures Lengthening Mascara lengthens and nourishes your lashes with red seaweed for elasticity. Shiny polymers add shine, luster and condition. Vegetal polymers provide easy application and superb adherence for all-day wear.
Flower Extreme Measures Lengthening Mascara:
• Smudge-proof color
• Helps to strengthen lashes
• Prevents lash damage
• Ophthalmologist tested
$6-$8 for 0.25 Oz (7 g), price varies across stores
My Experience with Flower LM5 Intense Black Extreme Measures Lengthening Mascara:
This mascara comes with a fine and small bristled wand with sturdy metallic black packaging. It is available in five shades: LM1 intense black, LM2 black, LM3 black brown, LM4 brown and LM5 Intense black. I picked its LM5 shade, Intense Black which is true to its name and suits my black eye lashes very well.
I could not find any significant difference between my previous Flower Lash Knockout Intense Black Volumizing Mascara and this extreme measure mascara other than their packaging and applicator. However, I do notice that the applicator wand in this one is quite flexible which effortlessly coats and conditions even the finest & most delicate of lashes without putting pressure on our delicate eyelids. Moreover, it gives clump free finish with its fine bristles while I found it to be feather light on my lashes.
I can feel visible difference on my lashes as they look curled up making my eyes look bigger and wide open without making any considerable change in my natural looks. I mean it does curl up lashes beautifully and gives an illusion of fuller lashes which is a plus point for beauties looking a temporary fix for their fine lashes like me. But, it is only good for normal, daily routine life and isn’t meant for heavy bridal look or for special occasions. You know what I mean?
I am impressed with the wand the most which is extremely flexible and puts less pressure on the lashes. Even the mascara dries quickly on my lashes without making them stiff or unnatural looking, but I miss dramatic and heavy looks for special occasions.
It is quite impressing to see that the mascara stays for good 8+ hours on my eyes and never cause any irritation or has not accentuated any other issue so far! This certainly makes it a keeper for gals with sensitive eyes who are more concerned about the after effects of using beauty products on their skin/eyes.
It is waterproof and smudgeproof up to a good extent and easily comes off with baby oil or any oil dipped in cotton without hurting or breaking our delicate lashes. Needless to say, everyone in my family loved it since they always want to look natural even with make up on and this mascara will never make them look over-the-top even after using it day/night. I would definitely recommend it to beginners and for college/office. Girls who want to look naturally beautiful even with makeup on, you got to grab this!
Let’s sum up pros and cons:
Pros of Flower LM5 Intense Black Extreme Measures Lengthening Mascara:
• A smudge proof, water proof mascara which is feather light on our delicate lashes.
• It does what it claims up to a good extent.
• It gives clump free finish with fuller lashes without looking heavy or made up on our face.
• Evenly coats lashes without causing any breakage or irritation on our delicate eye area or lashes.
• Mascara stays put for good 8+ hours even with natural make over.
• It does not look loud or dramatic even after multiple swipes .
• It is way mild and safe for our delicate eyes .
• Conditions our lashes as I always observe softer and fuller lashes unlike stiff, thick mascaras.
• The wand is so flexible that it evenly coats lashes, curling them up gracefully without putting pressure.
• Mascara is smudge proof and long lasting, but comes off easily with baby oil/any oil without hurting our lashes or causing any issues.
• Quite user friendly, travel friendly packaging.
Cons of Flower LM5 Intense Black Extreme Measures Lengthening Mascara:
• It does seem pricey, whatsoever.
• It does not give any dramatic makeover to the lashes.
Well, I don’t see much issues with this mascara – it is perfect for beginners and girls who usually shy away from heavy makeup look, yet want natural makeover. My relatives loved it more than the previous Flower Lash Knock Out Volumizing Mascara and I do like it for its flexible wand which is perfect for our lashes.
However, it is a skip for makeup junkies who love to see visible and dramatic difference to their lashes as we do have great choices in L’Oreal and Maybelline for similar or lower price!
