Scheduled for release in late September 2013, Bobbi Brown’s “Smokey Eye Mascara” promises “thicker, fuller, bolder lashes in a single super-saturated stroke.”
We’ll see if this mascara lives up to the company’s claims!
Having received a sample from my local Bobbi Brown counter, the container is smaller than the actual size, but the wand is the same. It appears to be your standard cylinder-shaped mascara wand — no frills here:
This mascara, in the shade “Blackest Black,” adheres smoothly to the lashes. I disagree with the statement that it delivers “thicker, fuller, bolder lashes” in a single stroke….but it DOES deliver them with 3 coats!
Very nice indeed! This mascara does frame the peepers with a glorious dark fringe. It delivers volume and length — albeit with 3 coats. Of note, I experienced no clumping, smearing, or fading as the day progressed. “Smokey Eye Mascara” is not a holy grail mascara in my opinion, but it is a very good one — and well worth the purchase. The perfect finishing touch to a smokey eye 🙂
Final Verdict: 4/5 Stars
Now available at Nordstrom.com for $28. Coming to Sephora and Bobbi Brown counters in October 2013
Disclosure: Special thanks to Mrs. Donna at my local Bobbi Brown counter for furnishing the sample! 🙂 As always, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
