If you’re a fan of subscription beauty boxes, I’m sure you've already heard of the BDJ BOX of Viviamo,Inc.,one of the leading companies that offer subscription boxes here in the Philippines. If you follow other beauty blogs, I’m pretty sure you've already read some of the unboxing & first impressions posts about the Jan – Feb BDJ box and you may also recognize this particular item that was included in the box, the Yves Rocher “Sexy Pulp” Mascara. I didn't really think too much of it initially and put it aside. Oh how silly of me. Plus, I wasn’t able to do an unboxing post of it and I don’t know why, maybe I was just busy with my school works at that time or I don’t know.
To save you a few months, just last Sunday, as I was doing my makeup before going to church, I was looking through my make up stash and saw the teeny tiny tube of the Yves Rocher Mascara, I've completely forgotten that I have this travel sized mascara sample sitting on the back of my makeup drawer for months now. When I first opened the tube, I grimaced at the size of the brush head. Just as I remember, it does look massive, in length and thickness (for a travel sized sample). It scared me a little, putting it near my eyes and maybe I was just at ease with the “normal” size brush head of the Maybelline Rocket Mascara. (My go to mascara for months now) Once I had gotten over the sheer horror of the size of the brush head, I've finally tried it on my eyelashes and surprisingly, I had absolutely no problem using it. The shape of the brush allows me to easily grab each lash with no difficulty or what so ever.
So what makes this mascara so amazing? I think it’s because of its BRISTLES. They are really dense, which means they literally grab every lash with minimum clumping. I’m the type of person who really loves to have volume in my eyelashes and this is what “SEXY PULP” claims to add, and I really feel that it does. It makes my lashes appear fuller, longer, and curlier and I feel like they build a nice impact without going to “false lash” measures.
Brush Head / Tip:
I only have the travel - sized sample of the Yves Rocher “Sexy Pulp” Mascara and I’m planning to order myself a full size tube if I have the chance. I think there are other color variations and maybe I’ll get a black one and a brown one. So that when I’m going for something more natural - looking, I’ll opt for the brown color and if I’m going all out and grungy, I’ll go with black.
I would highly recommend this mascara to anyone who wants volume, length and curl to their lashes.
*SORRY for the bushy and uneven brows. Hahaha :D
