Review - Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara

 When I was at Target a few weeks ago they had this travel size mascara and gloss on clearance for only $2.50. I purchased it just to try the mascara since I'm always looking for the next best thing.

Details: At first glance I thought I would hate it because Im not a fan of large brushes, I think they are a little harder to work w/ and don't let you get as close to the base of the lashes like I would like. The brush is made up of actual bristles, not the plastic ones you see now. I actually prefer the bristles over the plastic ones because I think it does a better job at separating and thickening your lashes without making them clumpy.

Review: The constancy of the mascara was a little thin but after a week or so it thickened up a bit and was the perfect consistency. The brush separates, lengthens and thickens the lashes all on its own after 2 to 3 coats. I didn't need to use a lash comb or anything. The size of the wand does however make it difficult to coat the tiny little hairs on the inner corners of the eyes though. What I loved about this mascara  is that it doesn't give you stiff or brittle lashes. I can't stand for my lashes to feel stiff. It dries them up and makes them fall out. Neutrogena claims: Visible Volume Brush grabs and coats even the smallest lashes with rich, volume-building color. Sweet Almond helps protect the outside of each lash.
The Result: 400% fuller, beautifully conditioned lashes. Patent-pending formula with Olive penetrates and helps plump the core of each and every lash. Plumps the inside, builds the outside
Don't just coat your lashes -- build them from the inside out!

Wow, what a bargain! I think it looks very natural on you (: I actually never paid attention to Neutrogena mascaras, maybe because they were too expensive and I don't really associate Neutrogena with makeup.
