Well, much to my surprise, L’Oreal Paris False Lash Sculpt actually does work! The premise of this mascara and yet another re-invention of the mascara brush is to tightline your lashes while coating them. Tightlining means – in this instance – getting a black line between the lashes so that your lash row looks like one continuous line of black with no natural skin colour. I love tightlining – I use the Laura Mercier method of wetting a black powder and nudging into the lash line with a flat edge brush. The results are spectacular.
However, if you’re hoping for the results as above, in the L’Oreal Paris False Lash Sculpt official pictures, dream on! When testing, I did get the mascara to tightline but I had to have several goes and it seems the key to success is speed. Initially, I focused too much on jamming the brush at the lash root so ended up with clumpy roots (but a decent tightline), moving to a lighter stroke where the tightline was less obvious but the actual lash definition result was better. So, the good result comes somewhere in the middle, and unless you are a mascara genius, you won’t get it right first time.
Although I like the look of the mascara when it’s on (and I’ve got it right), my lashes felt quite brittle with the coating; it’s not a soft formula at all. However (and luckily!), it does remove quite easily.
If you’re feeling experimental, L’Oreal Paris False Lash Sculpt has a price drop already from £9.99 to £5.99 HERE. Good luck!
