Product Review: Pupa Vamp! Mascara in Extra Black

by Gio

I love how false lashes drastically enhance your look but I just don’t have the patience to apply them every day. So, I’m always on the lookout for a mascara that delivers that dramatic, “false lashes” look without the hassle.

It’s not an easy search. A lot of volumizing mascaras either don’t work, or add volume by clumping lashes together, or do work but are terribly expensive. As a result, I’m still searching for my HG mascara, but now I’ve found one that comes very close to it: Pupa Vamp! Mascara.

Available in six shades, from the classic black, to a more softer brown for daytime wear to playful blue, green and purple hues that add a summery pop of colour to your look, Pupa Vamp! Mascara has a creamy and dense formula that doesn’t weight lashes down. And it is easy to apply thanks to the hourglass-shaped wand, which easily reaches even the tiniest of lashes.

One coat is enough to provide incredible length and quite a big of volume. The wand is also great at separating lashes. As a result, lashes look defined, thicker and a lot longer. The mascara starts clumping a bit when you add a second coat but I rarely do that anyway as one is more than enough to give my lashes the dramatic look I want.

If my lashes look a bit clumped together in the swatch below, it’s not the mascara’s fault, but of my very poor skills at applying it. Still, in real life, they look well-defined and dramatic. In fact, I love the effect so much I can’t stop looking at them in the mirror lol.

Once on, the mascara just doesn’t budge. It doesn’t flake nor smudge and stays put from morning till night, or until you decide to remove it, which is quite easy to do. The only thing this mascara doesn’t do is curl lashes, but then it doesn’t promise to so I can’t say I was too disappointed about it. Overall, this is one of the best volumizing mascaras I’ve tried and I’ll definitely repurchase it again and again.

When your lashes look good, it’s definitely hard to stop looking in mirrors LOL! I know the feeling. I think the packaging looks really great, and the effect is beautiful too.
