My Experience with Laura Geller GlamLASH Dramatic Volumizing Mascara:
The mascara comes in a traditional plastic black tube packaging, with a twist up cap attached to mascara wand. The wand is quite sleek, slender to give voluminous look to lashes. Overall, the packaging is user friendly and travel friendly.
Personally, I did not find any exceptional qualities in this mascara, especially if we compare its price to L’Oreal or Maybelline mascaras. In fact, I feel that L’Oreal Million Lashes or any regular mascara works similar to this mascara. Some of noteworthy good points – a) it certainly makes lashes long and curled for hours, and b) it does not irritate my sensitive eyes or lashes. Moreover, this one is a jet black mascara which does not look clumpy.
I mean, I see no black residue or clingy residual on my lashes post application as it dries fast. It gives natural-looking, long, non-sticky and lightweight lashes. However, these effects can be often noticed in even low end mascaras, that too with waterproof and non-smudging properties. Oh yes, this mascara is not waterproof and it might smudge on your eyes too. It had stained my upper eyelids on one occasion, and no eye lash primer can correct it. I have been using it with Laura Geller lash primer as well as with Clinique lash building primer, but it still smudges and transfers.
Now considering its average performance, I seriously feel $24 is way too pricey for just a non-waterproof and easily smudgeable mascara. Moreover, any decent quality mascara can give me bold black, non clumpy and voluminous lashes, hence I see no reason of picking up this GlamLASH mascara. Thankfully, it comes off easily from my lashes without causing any breakage, hence beauties with tender lashes might like it.
It is not really bad, but then the price and its tall claims certainly don’t match with its actual performance. I personally don’t think I would get it again as mascaras from L’Oreal make me more happy. If you want naturally bold and voluminous lashes with no prominent or dramatic effect, then you might like it; others have to skip it.
Let’s sum up pros and cons:
Pros of Laura Geller GlamLASH Dramatic Volumizing Mascara:
• A jet black, non-sticky mascara which adds decent volume and length
• Lashes look long and curled, and not clumpy
• Does not irritate my sensitive eyes
• Stays put for good 5-6 hours
Cons of Laura Geller GlamLASH Dramatic Volumizing Mascara:
• Smudges easily
• Non-waterproof mascara
• Does not add any “dramatic volume”
• Pretty similar to any low-end mascara
• Over priced, seriously
To be frank, I cannot relate its high price to actual performance. In fact, I feel for 24$ at least the mascara should have been smudgeproof and waterproof.
