As mentioned in friday's haul post I purchased 17's Wild Curls Mascars in 'Wildest Black' for £1 as part of their 'say yes to summer' voucher promotion. I was quite skeptical of this mascara to begin with. Usually when products are priced so cheap I assume that they're not the best quality, yet I was pleasantly surprised with this!
First off I have to mention the gorgeous packaging of this mascara. Many people find leopard print cheap and tacky but I adore it, and with the metallic gold I think it gives it a really fun edge. It's a traditional cylindrical shape in comparison to other 17 mascaras such as Falsieye, which has a more rectangular shape and I personally found that to feel a bit weird when I first tried it.
One of the things I was most surprised about with this product is the brush, with my usual preference for mascara brushes bring big and wide, so I thought it may be quite difficult to get the hang of applying this but I found no problems at all, which was pleasant. The small uneven bristles on the brush makes it easy to reach every lash and I feel makes it a lot easier to apply the mascara. Another problem I usually have with mascara's is that they feel quite wet and 'gloopy' when new but I didn't notice this at all with Wild Curls, as having anything too heavy or uncomfortable on my lashes is a definite no-no for me and I wouldn't consider anything I felt didn't 'feel' nice on my lashes.
First of all I apologise for my incredibly blotchy skin, I think I've had a bad reaction to a mask I used this morning :(! Instead you can just look at my gorgeous wallpaper :) But above is a picture with one coat of Wild Curls, and this is how I'd usually wear it for an everyday look. As well as curling my lashes it also spread lashes.
Overall I think this is a permanent fixture to my makeup routine. As well as lengthening my lashes it also separates and doesn't clump at all. I have been wearing this mascara for approximately 9 hours now and there is no sign of clumping or smudging at all. I feel this would also be a great mascara for a night out as well with a few more coats!
17 Wild Curls Mascara is available in Black, Brown, Wildest Black and Black Waterproof from boots and boots.com for £6.29, or £1 if you've received a voucher like mine!* This is the third 17 mascara I have tried and I am extremely impressed with all of them!
*Despite not paying full price for this product, I feel my opinion is 100% honest as always, and the price has in no way swayed my review in any way, and I would gladly re-purchase this for full price.
