When I first started out getting in to makeup I thought I would try the cheapest options first to explore whether I liked makeup or not. The first thing I bought in the LA Colors range was the Lash Mascara Perfect Curve. At $5 I couldn't complain and didn't really have any expectations because it was my first real makeup item.
The mascara comes in a silver/grey tube which is quite appealing to the eye. The tube resembles an hourglass shape almost which depicts the curve part of the name. The formula I found to be quite gluggy and thick but I wasn't to know any different. The wand is quite standard as far as I am concerned although the brush itself doesn't have as many bristles as I would have liked to be able to fan out my lashes a bit more.
I start at the root of the lashes and wriggle it through to coat them first. I find that it creates volume, The mascara itself was a tad clumpy and required me to brush through a bit to get it even. I continue through the lengths of my lashes to the tips. Not only did it lengthen but it gave off a sense of thick lashes too. I was quite impressed with the result. One thing I do dislike is that it makes my lashes stick together and they go hard like I have used hair gel in them. It actually hurts to remove it because it takes a fair bit of elbow grease to get the lashes apart. It pulls some of my lashes out in the process too.
All in all if you are on a tight budget or just starting out, this mascara is perfect for you. It is cheap but isn't of the lowest quality ever. I owned mine for three months before I threw it out so be aware that it will go off sooner than alot of other mascaras I have used.
