Julep Lengthening Mascara

Purchased 

Julep mascara, Julep lengthening mascara, mascara review, julep reviewMany moons ago - about 3 months ago- I got this mascara in one of the many misguided buys of their mystery boxes. This sat around in my collection unopened for a long time. For two reasons, 1. I already had like a biljillion already opened at that time and 2. it's in brown.

 I was pleasantly surprised by this mascara to say the least. This mascara offered extremely little in the lengthening department but I do have to say it gives a quite a bit of separation and volume!

When I wear this mascara as you can see in the photos I like to wear with my navy or purple eyeliner.

The wear time isn't the best. By the end of the day I have faint smudges under my waterline.

PROS:

  • Separation
  • Volume
  • short plastic bristle brush
  • holds a curl
CONS:
  • Very little lengthening happening. 
  • Smudges by the end of the day





VERDICT: Even though I do think this an okay mascara, and I will continue to wear it on my short days. I'm not wowed by this. It's laughable that it gives better volume and separation when it's a lengthening mascara. Some may love this mascara but I don't. I'm rating this pass, it's not a bad mascara but I won't buy it again. Sells for Regular $24, Maven $20. Can be found on Julep.com
