I got Cargo’s blu_ray mascara as part of a set that included a powder, blush, and primer. I’ll say this much – the mascara is flippin’ shiny. I kind of like it.
…I’m not sure how I feel about the brush, though. It’s basically a tiny comb, so while it separates the eyelashes well, you have to make sure you’re holding it at the correct angle before you start to put the mascara on. Still, I give bonus points to anything that has bristles that are firm enough to keep my lashes from turning into a solid mudflap.
While the formula isn’t clumpy, you do have to go over your eyelashes a couple of times to get enough product on them – I think that’s just a function of having a one-sided comb instead of a round brush.
And here are the results:
Okay, I KNOW that’s a weird angle, but it’s the only way to show you exactly how the mascara goes on. Here’s a more normal angle. I edited the crap out of the lighting on this one because of the giant shadow cast by the camera, so in case you’re wondering why my skin changed color, there’s your answer.
The next mascara up for review has possibly the most awesome-slash-ugly package design I’ve ever seen. Also, in case you’re wondering: at the end of these reviews, I’m going to do a collage of aaaaaaall of my eyelash pictures next to each other so you can compare them side-by-side.
