Let me preface this post by saying I’m not a huge fan of mascara. I know it makes the biggest difference opening up my eyes, but I find it tedious and messy. I’d much rather just do my regular makeup and then curl my lashes and be done. Let’s find out if this mascara helps!
The Packaging is a rather thick, green leaf-shaped bottle that can hardly stand on its own on top of my vanity. Its bulky packaging would be difficult to travel with or put in a makeup bag. The wand is huge, hence the “jumbo” in the title. The Price is $9.95. I’m always shocked that the Physician’s Formula brand is one of the most expensive in comparison to other drugstore brands like Maybelline, Rimmel, etc. The Formula is wet. It says that it is 100% organic which usually makes no difference to me.
My thoughts on the product are not looking good. I’ll begin by saying that I work better with thinner wands due to lack of clumping. The mascara had absolutely no volume and it hardly lengthened my lashes. Every time I used this mascara, the product ended up getting all over my eyelid and/or under eye area. I always needed to clean up my look before leaving the house. It took extra time than I wanted to spend on doing my mascara.
Since the formula is wetter, it never just stuck to where it was supposed to. Luckily, I wasn’t already dressed — But I pulled the wand out, and the mascara would literally splatter bits of black mascara onto my arm. (Quite possibly the worst aspect of this product.)
I wore this on Easter, and I like to laugh a lot — Two hours into wearing this mascara, I laughed so hard I squinted, making the ultimate panda eyes. Unfortunately, the mascara transferred to below my lower lash line, and it was not pretty. Possibly due to lack of chemicals I didn’t know how much I needed in a mascara, this did not benefit me.The upside is that it really defined my lashes, making them even blacker than they already are. And this helped to open up my eyes really well.
Would I purchase? No, I do not think it is worth the money or the time that it takes to have and use this mascara.
