Beauty Find - NARS Audacious Mascara

Are you ready for the next level in mascara?

Leave it to Francois Nars to create a mascara that is truly unique.  It's called NARS Audacious Mascara Black Moon  and is perfect for creating lashes that are super long - and separated from the roots to the tips.

First, there's the brush.  It has over 200 molded bristles and tiny little "hooks" which latch on to the lashes.  Note: The first few times I used it, I had to get used to a slightly scratchy/tickling feeling at the base of my lashes from the hooks.

But it's well worth it since the hooks helped me to reach the inner and outer corners of the top lashes, with ease.  I was also able to easily pull my lashes up with the brush, and they were instantly separated. 

The mascara formula is shiny black (it only comes in 1 shade), lightweight, silky and just a touch wet. I used about 2-3 coats to get my desired effect and they dried within about 30 seconds. The mascara didn't clump or flake and was extremely long lasting throughout the day.   

While it's easy to remove at the end of the day, I was also impressed that I could easily go back in with another coat of the mascara in the early evening for a little extra "oomph", and my lashes still didn't feel sticky or clumpy.

This mascara excels in the separation and lengthening area (this made my eyes look so much wider and open!), so if you don't need, or want, as much of a thickening effect, you will really love this mascara. - RLB
