I saw a new brand on Sephora’s website recently that appealed to my love of all things cute and girlie. The Pretty Vulgar brand offers a whole range of items including a few palettes, lipstick, mascara, and nail polish all cruelty free. Their ascetic is girlie and has a vintage feel to it with florals and birds being a repeat theme in their collection. I was mesmerized by their “Poisonous Pout” plumping lipgloss and their “The Feathers” mascara. They weren’t in a store by me so I took a chance and ordered online.
The Feathers Mascara: This mascara is priced at $24 for 10.84 ml. It claims to give you the deepest, darkest lashes with sky high volume. It is supposed to be a long wear formula that gives a clump-free, flake-free finish. It is enriched with B5 and sodium hyaluronate to thicken lashes and give dramatic volume.
My Findings: My first try with this mascara was just WOW! The packaging is STUNNING and almost unreal. It feels light but not like cheap plastic. The brush is curved and a little awkward at first to get every lash. The formula gave me the most amazing fringe of lashes. It looks like I’m wearing falsies. The volume it gives does lash all day. It is a waterproof formula and you will need a make up remover to get it to budge. It is a build able formula unless you let it set then I find it will get clumpy. I feel comfortable enough with this mascara to go out without falsies on.
Poisonous Pout Plumping Lipgloss in Pick Your Poison: This lipgloss is $22 and you get 5ml, it comes in 6 shades. It claims to make lips look firmer, smoother, and fuller with a natural peptide complex. It is supposed to be high shine and long lasting.
My Findings: The packaging on this looks beautiful and it feels expensive. It has a standard doe foot applicator. It does give a tiny bit of plumping with a menthol feel on the lips. It isn’t drying on my lips or sticky. The sensation doesn’t feel uncomfortable on my lips at all. The color comes off clear and very shiny. It is average in wear time.
Final Thoughts: The mascara gets a 4/5 from me. It gives me everything I have ever dreamed about in a mascara the only downfall is the brush is a little bulky. The lipgloss get a 3/5 there is nothing wrong with it but it was very average to me. The packaging is what gives it extra points for me.
