Another day, another new mascara. They pop up constantly and, of course, I have to try them all. My latest experiment was with the new Sephora Collection Outrageous Mascara. This is a volumizing mascara that is supposed to give you pumped-up, glamorous lashes. What sets it apart from other mascaras is the triple loaded brush. It coats lashes in one stroke for a luscious look (it really does only take one coat). I would recommend wiping the brush a bit before application. As with most fat brushes, they are a little big for my eyes and can get a bit goopy, so less is more. What I really love about it is the color. It is a very rich black and the formula contains Hyaluronic Acid, which is known for it’s moisturizing properties. The brush is good and can be used in a couple of different ways. Use the reservoirs to intensify lashes root to tip. You can use the “spiked” areas to separate and define lashes. Or you can achieve a curved effect by pressing brush lightly to the upper tips of lashes. Did it give me “voluminous” lashes? Not to the extent I would have liked, but the color was dramatic and my lashes definitely stood out. They just didn’t look as thick as I’d hoped. I didn’t find any smudging, but there was a little flaking. Overall, it’s a good mascara, but it just wasn’t as “outrageous” as I wanted.
