One Direction Volumizing Mascara Review

Hi guys!
So now I'm reviewing the mascara! This mascara is the same in all three of the one direction set, so hopefully this post will help you even if you don't want to buy the "Take Me Home" Set.

First off, packaging! It has the same matte and shiny black packaging that pretty much all the products have in the line. It is slightly annoying when you're trying to read the packaging because it's black on black and that makes it so hard to read. It's a nice long, skinny tube and it comes with 6.5mL of product, which is kind of small compared to other mascaras that I own (i.e. Covergirl Flamed out has 11mL).

The wand is a nice natural bristle brush that tapers at the end. It reminds me of the Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes wand although that one is plastic if I remember correctly and this one is natural bristles. It has a nice medium formula, which isn't too wet or too dry. It's really perfect for me! It is also a nice black shade that ends up true black (no gray tint like some mascaras can do).

My one complaint is that "volumizing" claim. I do think that I get great separation with the wand and definition, but volumizing doesn't really work for me. It also doesn't layer well and kind of gets clumpy and weird looking if you try doing more than 2 coats.

With that being said, I'll say this is a good natural mascara and it is a good addition to the makeup sets, but should definitely not be the sole reason you're buying this set because there are better volumizing mascaras (like Covergirl lashblast volume) in the drugstore for less!

I hope you enjoyed this post and let me know if you're going to purchase this set in the comments! Also, come back tomorrow for another review!
