The Fenty Beauty Full Frontal Mascara aims to expose every little lash with eye-opening definition.
Packaging and Appearance
The product stands out with its cool metallic pink and black shade.
Application and usage
The packaging successfully caught my eye (and heart), but does it really live up to its claims? I put it to the test with one of the most challenging scenarios ever — the wedding banquet. Weddings can be very emotional and exhausting, so I was determined to find out if the mascara would hold up after an entire day of pictures and the newlyweds’ tearjerking wedding speeches.
I started the day by putting the rest of my 'face' on, sans mascara. Then came the product of the hour, which made me hesitate for a hot minute before I bit the bullet and did it anyway. Having to work my way around an eyelash curler was terrifying enough, however ruining my makeup with poorly-applied mascara sounded worse.
Thankfully, the mascara wand was easy to manoeuvre and I managed to figure out its exclusive fat-to-flat brush feature which helped me greatly in the application process. Using the 'fat' side of the brush, I loaded it with product and used it to gently lift my lashes. "Try not to stab yourself in the eyeball," I told myself. Woah, my limp, sparse lashes became darker and more defined. I followed by using the 'flat' side of the brush to curl my lashes further. Double woah.
With my lashes on fleek, I showed up to the wedding banquet looking bright-eyed and photo-ready. (I wondered if the bride wore Fenty too?) I made sure to check in on my lashes every two hours throughout the day and was pleased to learn that my mascara didn't smudge. It provided the volume, length, lift and curl that my lashes so desperately needed. I was impressed.
