Cheap But Not That Cheerful: Wet n Wild MegaImpact Mascara
I've decided to come down from my high-end make-up cloud for a little bit and review the mascara I'm currently using: the Wet n Wild MegaImpact Mascara in Very Black ($3.99 for 0.27 fl oz/ 8 ml). There's something slightly tongue-in-cheek in seeing this neon orange tube between the restrained black packaging of my Bobbi Brown corrector, MUFE powder or BECCA concealer compacts that I rummage through every morning. The ridiculous exclamatives on the packaging just add to the effect: '8 Times Impact! Lifts for Drama! Longest Thickest Lashes Ever! Dramatic Impact!'. I believe this is also the cheapest mascara I've ever used, free mascara samples notwithstanding.
