Liz Earle Lash Care Intensifying Mascara Base is one of those products I never knew I needed, but I’m now on my second tube! This stuff lasts forever and is now a daily step in my routine. You apply before mascara, I do both eyes then apply mascara rather than doing one at a time if you see what I mean?!
Its an interesting one this one, it gets pretty mixed reviews on the Liz Earle website and I notice how many people started out, like me, getting this as a free gift with the old loyalty card. It goes on white and it doesn’t sink in (not sure how a product like this would) so you apply your usual mascara over the top, almost blending them together. For me it gives me an extra intensifying level of coverage and I wouldn’t use mascara without applying this first. I don’t find it clumpy or sticky like some others have found, I find it just helps bond my usual mascara and hold it in place until I’m ready to remove. I’m not sure this is a necessary every day step, although I have incorporated this into my daily routine (so maybe subconsciously I do feel it’s necessary!).
Now here is the really good bit! For a relatively high end product this retails at only £10.50. For that price it’s worth trying just to see how it works for you.
Loves – Easy to apply, helps my usual mascara stay in place all day
Not so Loves – I’m not convinced this is a desert island buy
Overall – I have repurchased and will probably continue to do so
