Has anyone seen that meme about the air being so cold it hurts your face? Well, that's Nova Scotia right now. Bitter cold days like these really put mascaras to the test. My eyes water, and I tend to rub them more often than I normally do. It's the true Canadian test of a mascara. Sadly, my newest mascara has failed the test!
First of all let me say, I absolutely love the brush of this mascara. So much that I've been considering what other mascaras I have that I can use this brush with. It's a natural bristle brush, that feels really good on my lashes. The problem for me, comes in with the formula. It's a drier formula than I prefer, and the flaking was unbelievable. It was so bad, that by the end of the day, I had barely any mascara left on my left eye, and absolutely nothing left on my right eye. I bought this in a duo pack, which was on clearance, and I almost wonder if I just got a bad one. Do you guys ever feel like sometimes the two for one items are lesser quality? I got the BFF Beauty Blender duo last year, and those sponges were totally different than the original. A YouTube guru that is usually spot on recommended this, but I hate it. I used it twice and haven't opened the tube again because both times it was just so bad! I kept it around because it will be the perfect mascara to test with my new Estée Lauder Little Black Primer. If that product can keep this mascara from flaking, it truly is a miracle product.
This easily hits the top 5 worst mascaras I have ever used. What are your least favorite mascaras?

Some blog posts might seem ridiculous. This is a safe environment for Beauty Junkies! If you bought something just because of the packaging, or you find yourself procrastinating by swatching, this is the place for you.
