One of my big make-up issues is smudging mascara; nothing worse than mid-day panda eyes! My mum bought this Bobbi Brown No Smudge Mascara a while ago, but she didn’t like it so she gave it to me. Obviously, it claims not to smudge, so I thought I’d check it out.
First thing I noticed was the thick, bristly brush; which I find are usually risky for clumping. However, this one doesn’t seem too clumpy, but I was careful with how I applied it. I can imagine if I was in a rush, it could easily clump up.
The mascara is quite thick and dark in colour, and builds up quickly, which makes for pretty intense lashes. This is one of the reasons Mum didn’t like it; she prefers a more natural, make-up look. On the other hand, I’m all about the big, dark lashes!
The waterproof formula is very long-wearing, and didn’t smudge (hallelujah!). Because of this, it is difficult to get off when you’re finished with it, so you might need to reach for the heavy duty make-up remover!
I did like this mascara, and it definitely delivers on what it promises, but, personally, I prefer the length and finish of the Benefit They’re Real. Both mascaras are £19.50, so they’re not the cheapest but definitely worth the extra pounds. Its not a new everyday for me, but next time I need to be sure my mascara isn’t going to budge, No Smudge is what I’ll go for.
Let me know what you think of this mascara, if you use it yourself or if you’re going to try it out!
