The New Mascara: Benefit Fan: Fest Fanning, amp, Volumizing Mascara
Today we’re exploring the world of mascaras with the highly praised Benefit Fan: Fest Fanning, amp, Volumizing Mascara. With its nearly five-star rating, it’s hard not to be intrigued. But is it worth the hype? Let’s take a closer look.
Introducing the Benefit Fan: Fest Fanning, amp, Volumizing Mascara
This new mascara comes with a hefty price tag of $25. It seems like mascaras are becoming more expensive these days. Nonetheless, this is the latest addition to the Benefit mascara range. According to the claims, it promises a 24-hour full fan effect, smudge-proof, and water-resistant finish. It is designed to fan out your lashes, amplify volume, and create a multiplied lash look.
The Full Flex Fiber Brush
The Benefit Fan: Fest Fanning, amp, Volumizing Mascara features a full-flex fiber brush. This type of brush is typically soft and made of boar bristles. Additionally, it has a slight curvature to enhance application precision.
The Application Process
Let’s dive in and apply this mascara. Upon the first coat, it already looks good. It separates my lashes and fans them out, creating a natural-looking result. The formula is sufficiently black. However, it falls short in terms of lifting and curling my lashes. Instead, it mainly focuses on lengthening them.
Since I accidentally got some mascara on my eyelid and lower lash line, I’ll let it dry before applying the second coat. It’s time to see if we can achieve the volume promised by Benefit.
Building Up the Volume
After letting the mascara dry, I apply the second coat. This time, I’m aiming for that voluminous effect. While there is definitely an improvement in terms of volume, it doesn’t quite meet the claims made by the brand. It falls short of the dramatic, full fan effect I was hoping to achieve.
Overall, the Benefit Fan: Fest Fanning, amp, Volumizing Mascara is a good option if you’re looking for a natural-looking mascara that enhances the length of your lashes. However, if you’re after a mascara that provides intense volume and curl, you might need to look elsewhere.
The Fanning Effect
The new mascara from Milabu Beauty claims to provide a fanning effect, and I must say, it does deliver. The bristles on this mascara have a good grip on my lashes, allowing them to fan out beautifully. It’s quite impressive to see the instant transformation.
Building It Up
Let’s build up the mascara a little bit more. I’ll use the curved side of the wand this time. I’ll twist it and apply it towards the roots of my lashes to see if we can create a lifting effect. The second coat definitely makes a drastic difference in terms of volume and length.
Clumpy but Volumizing
However, it’s important to note that with the second coat, the mascara starts to get a bit clumpy. It forms little balls of mascara that stick to some of my lashes. But surprisingly, this clumpiness seems to contribute to the overall volume of my lashes. It’s as if the weight of the mascara is weighing down my stubborn lashes, giving them a fuller look.
Now, let’s talk about removing the mascara. I’ll wait for it to dry before taking it off. But as I anticipated, removing this mascara is a breeze. It comes off easily without leaving any smudging behind. It almost feels like a tubing formula, where the mascara just balls up and can be easily washed away with water.
However, Milabu Beauty advises using an oil-based cleanser to remove this mascara, not just water. So, it might not be a true tubing formula after all. But regardless, it’s incredibly easy to remove without any hassle.
I’m quite pleased with this new mascara from Milabu Beauty. It delivers on its claims of providing a fanning effect, and the volume and length it adds to my lashes are impressive. The only downside is the slight clumpiness that occurs with multiple coats, but it’s a small trade-off for the overall effect. And with its easy removal, it’s definitely a winner in my book.
This new mascara claims to be long-lasting and it certainly lives up to that promise. The packaging states that it can be removed with an oil-based cleanser, indicating that it has some serious staying power. I found this to be true as the mascara stayed intact throughout the day without any smudging or flaking.
Upon application, I was initially underwhelmed by the first coat of mascara. It looked decent but nothing extraordinary. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the difference the second coat made. The mascara truly started to shine with its volumizing formula. The before and after comparison speaks for itself – one coat provides a more natural look, while the second coat adds that extra oomph.
For a casual everyday look, the first coat of mascara does the job perfectly. It adds just the right amount of color and definition to your lashes. It’s great for those who prefer a more subtle effect, suitable for the office or any daytime occasion.
If you’re looking to amp up the drama for a night out or special event, the second coat of this mascara is where it truly shines. The formula adds incredible volume and gives your lashes that extra “ba-boom” factor. You’ll be amazed at the difference it makes and how it instantly transforms your look.
What sets this mascara apart is its unique hybrid formula. It combines the best qualities of both waterproof and tubing formulas. When layered, it can be a bit clumpy, but that’s because it creates a kind of waterproof/tubing effect. This means that once it sets, it has impressive longevity and won’t smudge or flake throughout the day.
A Word of Caution:
While layering the mascara, I noticed that there is a limit to how much you can apply and how quickly you can do so. This is a common characteristic of both tubing and waterproof formulas. The way the mascara coats and encapsulates each lash makes it challenging to layer more product on top. However, once you find the right balance, you’ll achieve stunning results.
As someone who is always on the hunt for the perfect mascara, I must say that I am impressed with this new offering. It delivers on its promises of longevity and volume. My lashes look fantastic, both with the first coat for a natural daytime look and with the second coat for a more dramatic effect. The hybrid formula adds an intriguing element that sets it apart from other mascaras on the market. I have high hopes for this mascara and can’t wait to see how it performs in the long run.
Milabu Beauty Review: Fest Mascara by Benefit
When it comes to mascara, one can never be too careful. Flaking and smudging are dreaded outcomes that can ruin the entire look. So, when I heard about the Fest Mascara by Benefit, I was both hopeful and excited. On my first impression, it seemed easy to work with, although it did have a tendency to get clumpy. However, those clumps were easily separated, so I decided to give it a go and see how well it performs.
Mascara Performance After 14 Hours
After wearing the Fest Mascara for 14 hours, I must say that my lashes are still looking pretty good. They have held up decently throughout the day, despite my initial concerns about flaking. Unfortunately, my fears were not unfounded as there is a bit of flaking, particularly around the under eye area. I had to be cautious when wiping it off, as I am also testing some concealers and didn’t want to disrupt the results. However, there was not much smudging or transfer under my eyes or on my eyelids.
Impact of Swimming on Mascara
It’s worth noting that my lashes seemed to have dropped a little bit, especially on one side. This could be due to some residual splashing when I went swimming. Although I didn’t go underwater, I did get splashed by the kids, and this may have caused my lashes to droop slightly. However, the Fest Mascara held up relatively well despite the water exposure.
Overall, the Fest Mascara by Benefit has received mixed reviews from me. While it is easy to work with and provides decent wear throughout the day, the flaking can be a downside. However, its ability to withstand some water exposure is definitely a plus. If you’re someone who doesn’t mind a little flaking and enjoys a versatile mascara, then the Fest Mascara might be worth a try. But if flaking is a deal-breaker for you, then you might want to explore other options.
Review of the New Mascara
After trying out the new mascara, I must say that it still looks incredible. The lashes are beautifully pigmented, giving a rich and full appearance. Overall, I do like this mascara, but there are a few things to consider.
Flaking and Transfer
One downside to this mascara is that it tends to flake throughout the day. Additionally, there is a slight transfer on the lower lash line. However, the extent of flaking and transfer may vary depending on your skin type and what you are wearing underneath. If you have properly set your concealer, these issues may be minimized.
Despite the minor drawbacks, I am impressed with this mascara and look forward to continue using it. The first layer may not wow you, as it is not a significantly different type of mascara. However, it is the second coat that truly matters. This is when you will see the mascara’s full potential.
Clumping and Lash Separation
While this mascara can clump, you can easily separate your lashes with a bit of time and patience. Unlike fast-formula mascaras that quickly set, this one allows for some extra playing time before the formula dries. It’s important to note that the more layers you apply, the more likely you are to experience flaking, as the formula is slightly clumpier.
Preference and Experience
Whether or not you will enjoy this mascara depends on your personal preference and prior experience with similar types of mascaras. If you appreciate this kind of formula, you will likely find it enjoyable. However, if you prefer a mascara that lengthens without clumping, this may not be the best option for you. Nonetheless, I still like it overall.
