Want to know my thoughts on the ELF Wet Gloss Lash and Brow Clear Mascara?
What is it?
It’s a clear mascara that has an end for use on the lashes and an end for use on the brows.
The ELF Wet Gloss Lash and Brow Clear Mascara retails at £1.50 for 2.5g and is available to purchase on the Eyes Lips Face website.
The mascara comes in a simple, effective clear tube. One end contains an applicator for applying the product to the brows, the other contains a applicator for applying to the lashes. I personally find the packaging to be pretty sturdy and does the job at holding the mascara nicely.
Although I’m a big lover of my £1 MUA Mascara in Shade 1 (clear) when it comes to setting my brows, after many months of using it daily, I decided it was time to replace it with a new product as in the tube, let’s just say it was starting to look a little disgusting due to the clear product being mixed with my brown brow powder. Rather than repurchasing the MUA product, since I was placing an ELF order, I popped the Wet Gloss Lash and Brow Clear Mascara into my basket. Now, I’ve been playing with this product for a little while now and it is very similar to the MUA product but it of course has it’s differences, the first being the formula. The product has a sort of watery consistency which feels very wet (Sounds silly, I know) the MUA product has a similar texture but it’s more gel like and takes less time to dry on the brows. Having said that, when the ELF mascara does dry on the brows I feel like it gives an overall better hold and really keeps those crazy brows of mine in place and under control without being uncomfortably stiff. So yes, the results are much, much better however, I did find the mascara to flake a tiny bit and it did not last as long which is a real shame. Of course I still love using this product on my brows but for days when I really want my brows to last long, I will revert back to using the MUA mascara. As for the results on the lashes, it actually quite surprised me as it gave them a natural curl with some slight noticeable length which is absolutely perfect for minimal makeup days.
- Effective packaging
- Can be used on both the lashes and brows
- Keeps the brows nice and tamed
- Gives the lashes a natural looking curl and slight length
- Can feel a bit too wet and takes a little while to dry
- Has a tendency to flake a little, but nothing major
This isn’t a bad product at all. I’ll admit it has it’s flaws but I’d say it’s definitely worth it’s price. Do I prefer it to the MUA Mascara? Although I like them both, I prefer the MUA one that little bit extra.
