Review: Australis Voluptulash Mascara

Australis Voluptulash Mascara

The good:
This product has, quite literally, changed my life. I had iLasik back in 2009, and the product I was most excited about was mascara. My eyes were free from glasses, and I was ready to show them off! … until I discovered just how sensitive my eyes were. Even if I managed to find one that didn’t itch like crazy, it would still be a pain to get off. I went to bed with red, scratchy eyes for weeks before I decided it wasn’t worth it, and moved mascara to the ‘special occasion’ pile.

Then I discovered this little beauty from Australis. It has a curved silicon brush and it uses a tubing formula, so it coats each lash without smudging – and the best part is that you only need warm water and your fingertips to remove it! You just softly rub over your eyelashes (as though pulling them out), and the ‘tubes’ of mascara will come right off. Too easy!

The Voluptulash also gives crazy volume, which I love because my lashes are long but lonely. It separates and lengthens, and it only comes in blackest black, so it definitely stands out.

The bad:
It can clump on occasion, so I’ve got into the habit of wiping the brush on the rim before applying. I’m sure there’s a reason why I shouldn’t be doing this, but it works for me. I just need to apply an extra coat to get the volume I want.

And the packaging:
Good size and simple shape, it fits easily in my make-up case – and it’s bright, metallic pink, which is almost reason alone to throw it in your shopping basket!


The fine print:
