Review: NYX Le Frou Frou Mascara

Hello Lovelies!

I have here another mascara review! I got this NYX mascara for Christmas which came in a set with some other products. I’ve actually never heard of anyone talking about this mascara so I’m not sure if it has good or bad reviews until now. I wanted to see what others have to say about it so of course I turned to Makeupalley right before starting this post. There are quite a lot of negative reviews on it and the thing that most people pointed out was that “it did nothing to their lashes”. I have to disagree with that actually because for me it does give me volume and a bit of lengthening like it says it does.

Package: Pretty normal square tube. Nothing special.

Brush: Very basic round bristle brush and it applies the product without clumping.

Formulation: Its not too dry or wet so right in the middle. It gives me enough volume but I wish it would give me a bit more length. The length it gives me is very minimal and like a lot of mascara it doesn’t hold my curls very well. The mascara probably brings my 100% curled lashes down to about 50% after application. I can still live with it because it hasn’t gotten to the point where its pointing downwards which will cause smudging later on the day.

Final Verdict: The rating I would give this mascara would be a 3/5. This Mascara retails for $5.99 which is fairly cheap but for what it does there are way better mascaras in the drugstore for about the same price. This isn’t a horrible mascara but also it’s not something thats noteworthy. I will continue using this until I’m out but I would probably not be repurchasing this. 

What is your favorite mascara under $10?

Until Next Time,
❤ Jessica
