Review: This is my first ever luxury mascara. If you know me by now, two makeup items I do not really invest on are mascaras and lip products. I believe anything under $25 for mascaras will do its job when sold at Sephora. Plus Maybelline and L'Oreal has really good ones too. Lip products are the same for me - no matter how they market it as long wearing, they all fade away at some point during the days so I do not mind reapplying as needed.
The packaging is a sleek black box with the brand's logo and white typography. The mascara container feels very luxe, as you can see with the silver trim. It has a nice weight to it. This mascara has bent over backwards (literally) to ensure it stands out above the rest. Honestly, the concept is nice but I feel like have to bend the wand is more cumbersome (I like easy and one step process). Also, this mascara has a scent. This is a no go for me just because of the scent. I am sensitive to fragrances and why would you put a scent on a mascara where it goes near your eyes. I mean, really. This mascara is long-wearing and it does lengthen the eyelashes but for $29, I would not repurchase it. I think Givenchy tried too hard when they had to include a fragrance with this mascara. Total fail for many of us who have sensitivity issues.
