Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara Review
I recently took advantage of the Space NK free goody bag when you spend a certain amount of money (think it was £150 on this occasion - I made an order with my sister so I didn't have to fork out the full amount). The Space NK goody bag is always great, so it would be rude not to take advantage when such an offer is available (that's what I keep telling myself anyway). I usually end up buying some high end products that I couldn't justify spending my money on ordinarily and one of those products that I put in my basket was the Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara.
To be fair it only cost £12 as I bought the travel size version which is 5.5g. I think travel size mascaras are a good idea as the brush is the normal size it's just the wand that is shorter and I don't know about you but I usually waste a ton of product when I throw a full size mascara away as I only keep them for about 3 months each. In addition the full size product costs £25 for 9.4g, so the travel size version is actually better value.
The shade is ultra black and I found that I only needed 1 coat to lengthen and curl my normally short and very straight lashes. It didn't flake or smudge and was easy to remove with a standard makeup remover. The brush was small and fine, but there are so many bristles that they grab hold of every single lash and keep them separated. Overall, I really like this mascara and I think it will be my go to mascara for all occasions.
Just one more point. I like the fact that they have gone with a triangular shaped tube instead of the standard circular tube. It's only a little thing, but it makes the product stand out. This is only the 2nd Hourglass product that I have ever tried, but I definitely want to try out some more. Can you recommend any Hourglass products for me to try?
I bought this product with my own money
