Origins GinZing Mascara: £17*
The Origins GinZing Mascara has quickly rocketed up the list of my favourite mascara's to possibly take over the likes of Benefit's They're Real and Maybelline False Lash effect. Despite having this a fairly long time I never really gave it the time of day. Until a few weeks ago on a rummage through my always growing stash I found it and thought I'd give it a whirl.
This mascara coats every lash perfectly, lengthening and flifting as you comb through your eye lashes. I find the formula to be a very true black (grey mascara is a pet hate!) and it really makes my eyes pop. I don't really understand why it makes my eyes feel more brighter and open but it does. My favourite thing about this mascara is that it doesn't leave my lashes looking stiff or crunchy, they feel soft and nourished and conditioned. The mascara is packed full of goodies to condition your lashes without drying them out. I have to admit this doesn't give amazing volume, although it can be built up over time for a full lash look. This is definitely a mascara for people who want lift and length. Origins GinZing Mascara is also formulated without Parabens, Mineral Oil, Paraffin, Synthetic fragrance and Animal ingredients.
Honestly, I think Origins GinZing Mascara is lovely and really unexpected from a brand like Origins. I raved about their skincare for ages but never really considered them as a makeup brand but this has changed my opinion. While I'm not overly keen on the oversized brush, it's just a little too large for my personal taste, but I do find it really helps separate and lift the lashes. The formula is spot on and the length and drama they give my eyes is so different from anything I've tried in a long time. Two big thumbs up from me!
