Today, I will be reviewing Illamasqua Masquara in Raven. I got this last December and I have been using it since then and now its almost over 🙂 So, its ready for review! I threw away the outer box carton by mistake, sorry for that. They have purposefully named their mascara as “masquara,” I kind of like the sound of it 🙂

My Take on Illamasqua Masquara in Raven:
The mascara comes in a black box and has the list of ingredients printed on it. The color “Raven” is jet matte black. The texture of mascara is creamy and not too runny. The brush is quite big as you can see and well it does work perfectly for upper lashes but for lower lashes I feel it does not work at all!

One coat is sufficient to give that natural look. This mascara gives length but not much volume. Also, it tends to clump, so one has to take effort to re-coat to make sure there are no clumps.
