I haven't yet reviewed any Barry M products, so I thought it was high time I shared my thoughts on the fabulous Lash Modelling Extra Black Mascara!!!

First off, it has comes in attractive "almost-monochrome" packaging with a pretty vintage-inspired scallop-style pattern around the bottom. Very chic. ;)

...I've just noticed it looks entirely monochrome as I've made the photo black & white - my bad. The word "Lash" is written in purple in reality. Comprendeo? Wicked. Let's move on...

Barry M say this mascara "defines and separates the lashes", and I agree! The plastic "comb" applicator has short bristles at the tip and longer ones at the base to coat each lash with the perfect amount of product, giving an even, clump-free result. Barry M do not say that this product will lengthen your lashes, but it defiantly added length to mine. One coat gives a good result, but two coats looks great! I like to wear two coats for extra volume and double the drama (see photo). I correct any mess with a cotton bud and my Simple Kind To Eyes Eye Make-Up Remover (click to view on the Simple website).

The only complaint I have is this: Over the course of my looong days, the volume that the mascara gives when first applied seems to deplete a little. If you try to apply more product onto your lashes it seems to flake quite easily. I believe this flaking is largely due to the plastic brush - their lash-separating quality and clump-free result is fantastic, but mascara seems to flake more easily when layered with these now commonly-used rubber applicators. Anyway, I still love this product!

This mascara is not waterproof - avoid beaches, rain, and tears.

I'm one of the countless fans of Barry M's quirky, colourful, exciting products and tiny price tags! You definitely get a lot of bang for your buck, and this product is no exception.
