I was on the hunt for a new mascara since I decided to ditch any beauty products that weren’t cruelty free. I was absolutely obsessed with the L’Oreal Lash Paradise mascara, but obviously, they’re not cruelty free. So, I did some looking around on the internet and decided to pick up the NYX Cosmetics Doll Eye mascara. Many beauty bloggers and influencers raved about this mascara on their blogs, and reviewing platforms such as Influenster.com.
NYX Cosmetics carries 3 different types of the Doll Eye mascara. There is a Volume, Long Lash, and Waterproof formula. Having different formulations for a type of mascara is kind of different and definitely has it’s pro’s and con’s. Usually mascaras are lengthening and add volume all together in one formulation, but this NYX mascara is one or the other. I picked up the volume formula because my lashes are already kind of long, so I figured I’d give the Volume formula a try!
I definitely noticed a difference in volume with this mascara. With a few coats of the mascara, I get a fluffy, clump free, voluminous finish. The formulation of the NYX Doll Eye mascara is made with nylon fibers and natural oils to add lots of volume. You do have to be quick about applying this mascara because it dries up super quick. After a few hours though, the mascara doesn’t flake off, which is great! The tube comes with a small, hour glass shaped applicator which makes it perfect to get up close n’ personal to your lash line for the most lift. I’m absolutely loving this mascara but next time I’m in my local drugstore I’m going to be picking up the Long Lash formula to use with Volume formula because I do wish I got a little bit more length to the finish.
Who else has tried this mascara?! What is your favorite cruelty free mascara?
