It’s not too often I hear hype about a new beauty product and find myself really excited about it. I must have lots of Mary Kay-selling friends though because I kept seeing their photos and posts about the launch of the new Mary Kay Lash Intensity Mascara on my social media feeds. Note to people who sell (through Mary Kay, Arbonne, Younique, etc.) here’s a tip: TALK about your products. Share photos (good photos, not blurry poorly-lit photos that don’t tell me anything) and AMAZE ME. That’s what these Mary Kay girls did! By the third photo I saw of a consultant showing off the brand-new, not-yet-launched mascara and showing me how amazing it was, I sent a message to my consultant (the lovely Andrea) and ordered. And then I left the country.
I’m not kidding, while I was gone I thought about this mascara and how much I wanted to try it! Once I got home and found my package of mascaras (one for me, and one I ordered for my mom) I still didn’t have a chance to try it right away! It wasn’t until the text message that I got from my mom:
That was enough, I had to try it!
What’s so great about this mascara? It’s supposed to add 200% more volume plus 84% longer-looking lashes. I’m more than OK with that! It’s formulated with Pro Vitamin B5 to help protect, condition and strengthen lashes plus it helps prevent lash breakage during makeup removal. (There’s nothing like taking off your mascara and losing eyelashes along with it, ugh.)
Here are some old photos of my bare lashes (from another mascara review I did in the past):
And with only the Mary Kay Lash Intensity Mascara (curled my lashes a bit, but no eyeliner):
And a before and after look:
This is good stuff. I mean GOOD STUFF. Here’s a full makeup look with this mascara:
Things I love about the Mary Kay Lash Intensity Mascara:
- The formula is thick without being globby (that’s the scientific word for it, right?) No clumps or spider lashes.
- You can layer and layer for a more dramatic look and your lashes still feel soft
- It washes off easily but at the same time it doesn’t come off easily when crying (don’t ask me how I know…) Seriously, no mascara under my eyes!
- The price – I recently was using a mascara I liked that was $38 a tube. These are $18+ tax! (I paid about $39 for two tubes)
Things I didn’t like about it:
Here’s the bad news: It was so insanely popular that when it launched it sold out COMPLETELY in 72 hours. The company is working to fill back orders so right now it’s currently only available though consultants who have it in their inventory (so you won’t see it on Mary Kay websites). I found out that all consultants have access to deluxe mini samplers while waiting on the full size so you can contact a consultant to order a full size or a sample size. I’d say if you’re interested, find a consultant AS SOON AS POSSIBLE to get your order in now! (And maybe you’ll be lucky and they’ll have some in their inventory!!)
Have you tried this mascara? Have another beauty product you can’t live without? Tell me!
