Mascara Monday – @fentybeauty Full Frontal Volume, Lift & Curl Mascara

February 17, 2020

While it may seem like every Monday is Mascara Monday, when I got a sample of the highly anticipated @fentybeauty Full Frontal Volume, Lift & Curl Mascara ($24 for .42 ounces –, I knew I had to review it ASAP!

What it claims:

🔘 A do-it-all mascara that is designed to expose every lash, featuring an exclusive flat-to-fat brush that instantly volumizes, lifts, lengthens, and curls

🔘 Get full-on lashes with this water-resistant, ultra-black formula

🔘 The longwear formula keeps lashes exposed all day

🔘 Cruelty-free and gluten-free

My experience:

🔘 Photo five (5) is with one (1) coat on my right eye. Photo six (6) is with two (2) coats on my right eye. Photo seven (7) is with two (2) coats on both eyes.

🔘 I applied the mascara as they advised – using the flat side of the brush to get definition and curl and the fat side to get volume and lift.

👍🏻 The flat side did an excellent job of separating my lashes and giving them length – even with just one (1) coat.

👍🏻👎🏻 The fat side did an OK job at lifting and volumizing.

👍🏻 I have been wearing it for over eight (8) hours now and it looks the same as it did right after application.

👍🏻 I haven’t experienced any transfer onto my upper lid or lower lash line or flaking. I will be wearing it to the gym tonight to make sure it lives up to the “all day” claim. Check my Story to get an update!

My verdict?

While this is a nice mascara that does a lot of the things I look for in a holy grail product, it doesn’t do all of the things. If this gave me more volume, a little more curl and a tiny bit more length, I would quickly purchase the full-size. However, since it isn’t as good as others I’ve tried and it comes in on the higher end of price points, I’ll be using up the sample and then moving on.
