Oriflame Giordani Gold White Gold Mascara Review
Mascaras have caught my fancy just recently in the past 1-1/2 years or so. Through IMBB posts and tutorials, I realized that mascara is an important tool in makeup and without mascara an eye makeup is not complete. Actually, I stopped using mascara a few years ago when I had a bad experience of itchy eyes with the Streetwear mascara. I also felt that mascara accentuates my acne scars. But, it was only after I started using the Maybelline Colossal mascara that I realized that a right mascara can open up the eyes to a great extent and add drama to the eyes. I just recently got the Giordani Gold White Gold Mascara and here’s the review for it.
HOW DOES THE CATALOGUE DESCRIBE GIORDANI GOLD WHITE GOLD MASCARA:
Delightfully rich, volumising and caring mascara for voluptuous, unforgettable lashes. Enriched with pro vitamin B5, this supremely smooth formula conditions your lashes and delivers the finest colour for beautiful, glamorous eyes.
PRICE: Rs. 498 for 8 mL.
MY TAKE ON GIORDANI GOLD WHITE GOLD MASCARA:
Giordani White Gold mascara comes in a classy silver packaging that it’s hard not to get impressed with it. The mascara itself is a big, long, and plump one with a long brush. The bristles are short and tightly packed together such that each lash gets coated with color. Maneuvering and applying mascara with the long brush and handle is so easy. There is just the right amount of product that sticks on to the brush after I pull out the brush from the tube. There is no clumping seen even after I apply it multiple times over my eyes. There’s not much in the way of curling effect or lengthening of the lashes. The color is richly pigmented and blackest black. Coming to the most concerning aspect about mascaras, though this is not a waterproof mascara, it does not bleed badly upon contact with water. It does smudge, but not the way that it would give me raccoon eyes. After a few splashes of water, the mascara completely vanishes without leaving traces behind. It does open up my eyes, but not in the way that the VeryMe ClickIt Mascara costing Rs. 159 does. Though the ClickIt Mascara does clump a little bit, but what I get in the end is much better than what I get with Giordani White Gold Mascara.
Giordani White Gold Mascara does not stick lashes together neither does it stiffen them up. The eyelashes are coated with a rich black color with voluminizing effect.
Another important factor is that it does not cause any itchiness to the eyes. I was mighty scared with my Streetwear experience, but this, I can wear all day long without any problem. I also noted that there was a little bit of drying in the tube. This is a normal everyday mascara to wear, but if you need some drama and definition to the eyes, you can always go back to Maybelline Colossal mascara.
PROS OF GIORDANI GOLD WHITE GOLD MASCARA:
• Heavily pigmented and rich black in colour.
• Does not clump the lashes.
• Does not stick the lashes together or stiffen them up.
• Dries up quickly.
• Does not bleed badly. Though water takes it off the eyelids, but it’s not a bad loser and fades away quickly without much fuss.
• Good for everyday use where you don’t need much drama to your eyes.
CONS OF GIORDANI GOLD WHITE GOLD MASCARA:
• Does not play up the eyes significantly.
• There seems to be some drying in the tube.
• Does not open up the eyes adequately.
• Does not define the eyes perfectly, I found the Oriflame ClickIt mascara much more defining than this one.
• This mascara is not waterproof.
• Does not curl the lashes adequately, no lengthening effect seen either.
WILL I BUY THIS AGAIN: No, I will continue with Maybelline Colossal and Oriflame ClickIt Mascara.
IMBB STAR RATING: 2.5/5
