Korres Deep Colour Mascara

25 May

I have extolled the virtues of Korres before and now, in the half hour before I have to leave for work, I am going to do it again.

I have naturally full, curly lashes. (Don’t hate me, there are lots of other things wrong with me, I promise.) Sometimes, if I am just going out dog walking or whatnot, I don’t want to go all out in the eye makeup department, and this includes mascara. What I mean is that if I use one of my favorites – like, say, Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes! mascara – I end up with really, really full, dark, long lashes, and to me, that looks a bit overdone for walking dogs. Long black lashes are beautiful and they make my eyes look sensational, but I don’t really need to look like I am all done up for a night out on the town every day, and honestly, it makes me feel a little preposterous. Sometimes, I just want to highlight my lashes (which have blonde tips, so can be a bit invisible with no mascara at all) without making them look like I have false lashes on. It’s on these days I turn to Korres’ Deep Colour Mascara.

Here’s the scoop, from the Sephora website:

What it is:
A pigment-rich mascara containing Provitamin B5 and Rice Bran.

What it does:
Korres Deep Colour Mascara provides glossy, deep color while conditioning and nourishing to promote maximum lash health. This brand favorite contains Provitamin B5 , a proven hair-strengthening agent that conditions and strengthens lashes, while Rice Bran expands (just like rice does in water) to provide maximum lash length, volume, and fullness*.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Mineral Oils
– Petrochemicals
– Propylene Glycols
– Ethanolomines
– GMOs
– Synthetic Fragrances
– Synthetic Dyes

(*asterisk mine – I love this mascara but I don’t know what they’re comparing it to – I have used a LOT of mascaras and this provides medium volume and fullness, NOT maximum.)

This mascara is a fantastic daytime mascara. It stays put, doesn’t smudge, gives me nice, beautiful length and color, doesn’t clump, and doesn’t make my lashes looks too fake or overblown. I am wearing it right now as I type this, because I have a lunch date today and want to look presentable. I just ran my finger over the ends of my lashes and they feel soft and pliable, not set and hard as the case is with some mascaras. And if it does the stuff it promises, with the Provitamin B5 and whatever, then hey, all the better!

I fully endorse Korres’ Deep Colour Mascara as a go-to daytime mascara. And now I must go-to my daytime job. Toodle-oo!
