Skin/Hair Type: Oily and occasionally acne-prone/Normal
Hello gorgeous ladies,
I believe the drugstore has nailed it big time when it comes to mascaras, right from Maybelline to Covergirl and L’Oreal (my most favourites), the drugstore has a mascara for every eye lash type and budget. So today, the mascara I have here is the NYX Provocateur Mascara. Let’s find out if this baby is a new favourite or whether I would stick to my tried and tested ones for the time being.

My Experience with NYX Provocateur Boudoir Mascara:
Packaging: This NYX mascara comes in a standard black tube packaging. The tube looks like any regular mascara tube and looks nice. There are ideally two wands (applications) of the mascara in one tube! There is a level 1 which is the regular wand that comes out with a lot of product on it for the top lashes.
When you open the cap for Level 2, the same mascara tube comes out, but this time, the opening is narrow, making the wand pick up less product, which is ideal for the top lashes. I hope all that explanation made sense!! If you’ve used the Colorbar Zoom and Whoosh Mascara, you’ll know what I am talking about!
Color: The shade I got is “Blackest Black.” I don’t know why, but I can never settle for a mascara that is not the blackest black. Since I have black eyes, I think black mascara flatters them the most.
Formulation: The formula of this mascara is what I prefer. Yes, it’s more on the wet side. I do not like dry formulations because it does tend to get dry anyway after the mascara has been opened. Although, this does have a wet formula, but the wand just has enough product in it for application. Although this does not hold my lash curl all day, but the performance is pretty decent. This one tube is enough for coating the top and bottom lashes efficiently. If you see the EOTDs, you’ll be convinced.
Longevity: The “wow feature” is that this baby stays put all day! I have tested for a good 13 hours and I looked the same as it did when I applied it in the morning. It does not flake away or budge at all.
Quality: I am super impressed with this mascara! I had no problem using the wand to apply mascara on my bottom lashes as well. There was no clumping, smudging nor flaking all day! I’ve tried mascaras that irritated my eyes and made my lash line just itch, but I had none of that with this mascara. The mascara came off so easily, just using my makeup remover.

Would I Repurchase/Recommend NYX Provocateur Boudoir Mascara?
I absolutely love the NYX Provocateur Mascara and will be using this tube completely and will also repurchase. This is an idea product for travelling as one tube can do a great job at the top and bottom lashes. If you like drugstore mascaras, I will recommend trying this mascara since it’s affordable and performs really well.
