Nars Cosmetics just launched Climax Mascara (C$30 for 6.2 mL made in Italy), this is a light weight mascara that offers a buildable volume with a very flexible formula. I personally a huge lover to volume mascaras, I found the formula is quite nice and buildable while it doesn’t clump nor smudges on the lashes. I love how the formula is free of Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates which gives another thumbs up for this mascara, the bristles are well separated with a very fine spicks which grabs lashes individually and coat each lash for an intensive effect and adds thickness. It carries a very intense black color which is perfect for a very rich and bold lash look.
Two coats of Climax Mascara without any base or a curler
I’m really particular about my mascaras since mascara is one of the beauty items that I wear daily, my eyes gets tired if the formula is stiff. I found its soft and creamy while you can coat your lashes as many times as you want. I personally love thick lash look and I don’t really care if it gets clumpy, I actually like the clumpy look. I use one coat on my lashes but I brush my lashes as long as I get satisfied with the look. The packaging is just one point, its beautiful with a very high glossy finish that adds a glamorous look. I just feel the bright red color really keeps your vanity and makeup bag look fun.
Bottom line choosing a mascara can be tricky, Mascara is one of the beauty items that I use daily basis and I’m really particular about my mascara. It really depends on your lash type and length, I have a pretty long lashes with a semi curl which mean my mascara do smudge at my crease most of the times, and all I need is volume. Most of the volume mascaras works for me and the times that I really want to go crazy I do use a lengthening mascara as a base then followed by a volume mascara. I found this Nars Climax mascara really works nice without any smudging at all. The formula is quite creamy with a long-lasting properties. You can now find the Nars Climax available at all Nars counters in department stores as well as Sephora and Nordstrom.
