BUXOM Big Tease Mascara: Review

With the surprise of our spring survival kits came the surprise of the BUXOM Big Tease Mascara. Since becoming a college student I hardly ever wear a full face of makeup “just because,” and although I love eye makeup, that hardly ever happens either. Mascara, on the other hand, is always a go-to and one of my personal favorites.

I tried out the Big Tease Mascara a few times and wore it for a few days before writing this and here are my thoughts…

It definitely isn’t one of my favorite mascaras, but I would rate it around 3 stars (out of 5) and overall give it a measly thumbs up. I found it lengthening but not so much volumizing — which is essential for a bold eye look.

Firstly, I love the color; although it isn’t hard to achieve the perfect black in a mascara, this alone is worthy of some acknowledgement. Personally, I also see that it does a decent job of applying a decent amount on my lower lashes due to the shape of the brush.

I didn’t have any issues with clumping and it did smudge although it was only slightly. Also, it didn’t hold a shape throughout the day (unless paired with another mascara) and so, ultimately, it just wasn’t enough.

Even after a few coats it still doesn’t compare to other high-end products within the same price range. I personally don’t wear falsies so I can’t speak to what it's like on them, but paired with another mascara definitely helps and brings out its full potential. Even then, this isn’t my first choice.

For me, I can’t get the kind of look that I want without pairing it with other mascaras and so, for its price range, I personally wouldn’t buy this product.
