Beauty Find - em Cosmetics Lash Gallery Waterproof Dramatic Volume Mascara

YouTube beauty dynamo, Michelle Phan, has certainly showcased many mascaras in her years on YouTube beauty tutorials, but em Lash Gallery Waterproof Dramatic Volume Mascara from her em Cosmetics line shows that she's really paid attention to what works in a mascara.

em Cosmetics Lash Gallery Waterproof Dramatic Volume Mascara is perfect for summertime, of course, but also for those of you who want a budge-proof, all day wear mascara product for busy work day, a day of interviews, photos or a big event for example.

For reference, my lashes are fairly long and of normal thickness. I found the brush and mascara both worked well to glide effortlessly on to my lashes, without clumping or running.  The texture of the mascara is not too thick - or too thin, and the black shade is a true, deep glossy black color.

The shape of the brush allowed me to get inner corners, focus on the outer edges and also apply to the lower lashes easily with no clumping.  The formula was not too wet, and it set fairly quickly.  My result?  With about 3 coats my lashes had perfect volume, noticeably more length and just as importantly, separation.

During the day my lashes didn't flake, smudge, or run.  This mascara also never made my lashes feel hard or stiff (I hate that!).  Only at the end of the day, with a makeup remover + cleanser did this mascara completely come off (which is a good thing) - but I didn't have to tug or struggle to remove it either.

If you're in the market for a new mascara, or are just curious about what product you should start with in the em cosmetics line, this is the mascara for you. - RLB
