First of all, welcome to my blog. Prepare yourself for a journey for my lashes. The first mascara I decided to test out was one I think almost everyone can afford. E.l.f’s $3 Mineral Infused Mascara was put to the test. I bought mine at Target and with tax and everything it was a whopping $3.22. Let’s be honest, when you buy $3 mascara you really aren’t expecting much, but this mascara worked surprisingly well! The brush is plastic and has several spikes that seem to grab the lashes and give you a full coverage look and feeling. Another thing I really enjoyed about this mascara is the natural look it gave me; my lashes were even flexible. And now, the cons… At the beginning of the day my lashes were perky and curly, and by the end of the day they had relaxed, and sort of straightened out. Also, as you may be able to see in the picture (the end of the day one), I had black under my eyes. One of my least favorite things about this mascara was probably that it began to crumble a little towards the end of the day. Overall, this mascara exceeded my expectations, and I would say this mascara produces lovely lashes for a substantial amount of time! I don’t think I would use this in my every day look, but I would definitely use it as a “I don’t want to put on make up, but I have to” look!
