The Flake: Buxom Amplified Lash Mascara review

Buxom Amplified Lash Mascara by Bare Escentuals…

Buxom Amplified Lash Mascara

Initially I enjoyed this mascara. It added nice volume, length, all things you would enjoy in a mascara. It has a dial, when fully extended the brush gives you extra volume, twist the dial to the wand’s compact position for length, separation, and definition. 

None of that matters, though, because the mascara flakes. After a few hours, I’m left with tiny black flakes beneath my eyes, which is not flattering. I gave it a few changes, but always with the same result.

I see a lot of positive reviews and people raving about this mascara, so apparently the flaking doesn’t happen to everyone, or they just deal with it.

I wouldn’t personally recommend this mascara, nor will I purchase it again. I’ve heard the original formula is better, but I can’t say for sure.
