What did I try today?
Guerlain Paris Cils dEnfer Maxi Lash Mascara in Noir
I purchased this mascara from Nordstrom when they had a buy 2 get 1 free! I was excited to pick this one up. It is by Guerlain and the packaging is super lux! How beautiful is it!
I haven’t heard a ton about Guerlain mascaras. Of course, they have beautiful products, but I really haven’t tried anything from this brand either.
It retails for $32. Not cheap, but typical for a high-end mascara.
What it is supposed to do
Give volume. This is supposed to give just the right about of volume. It is also supposed to hold curl well.
I love this wand. It is flexible and gets to every lash. I love the it moves with the lash, rather than being stiff and too firm. When I first tried it on, the bristles were all bent down, but I just reinserted it to bring them back to their shape. It really works well.
Application and Formula
Oh, this one is good y’all. It dries fast, so you have to work with it quickly. The consistency is perfect, not too thin, not too thick. It glides on well, coats every lash, and you can apply multiple coats.
And can we say…. WHOA VOLUME and CURL! LOVE IT!
I love the way this goes on. It’s easy. Some mascaras you really have to work with, which is ok, if you have the time. For me, personally, I don’t have a ton of time to be putting on a mascara. I want it to look good from the first swipe! Maybe I’m high-maintenance, but that’s what I want from my mascara!
Real Life Wear
Really good. I mean, when I say really good, I’m saying almost perfect. This is fantastic. It wears so well. It doesn’t smudge, clump, flake. I’m in awe.
It stays on too! My eyelashes looked great at the end of its wear! Very impressed y’all!
This does have a fragrance, which didn’t bother me too much. I prefer no fragrance in my mascaras, if possible.
Easy as pie! This mascara is so easy to remove. It didn’t sting my eyes or flake, nothing. So good.
4.9/5 – hands down. 0.1 off for fragrance. Everything else was amazing!!!
This one is good. I’m pretty critical about mascaras. After trying a few, I am learning what I really like from a mascara. I do like one that gives volume, but not crazy spider volume. It’s so much fun to try these out!!
Wishing you all the bright fireflies!
