After I posted about Blinc Kiss Me Mascara in January, Rachel (a blogger, Arbonne consultant, and mommy of two boys) e-mailed me and asked if I wanted to try Arbonne About Face Lash Colour to compare the two. I agreed to give it a trial run.
The About Face Lash Color [mascara] is a combination of a colorless primer agent that conditions and preps lashes, and a mascara that offers water-resistant lash coloring. According to the website, “the formula won’t irritate lids and offers extended wear … that’s easy to remove. Each product includes a precision wand that defines, lengthens and separates lashes … for a truly glamorous look that lasts.”
The tube itself is very classy, a light and earthy green. The mascara comes on very naturally and doesn’t “clump.” In fact, I found myself applying it twice to get my desired volume. I liked the softness of the brush and the paint. It seemed to roll on seamlessly. The mascara didn’t flake or clump. It did, however, leave black circles under my eyes after half-day or all-day wear. That’s truly the only downside [disclaimer: I must touch my eyes more than the average gal because other moms I know don’t seem to have the same issue with this or other mascaras]. As far as “clean-up” goes, the mascara came off very easily with my Revlon Eye Makeup Eraser Pen (which I bought on recommendation from Tammy at A Mom in Red High Heels).
I’m curious…what is your favorite mascara? If you’ve tried Arbonne About Face Lash Colour, give your review!
