This is the second item I have tried from Uoma Beauty, the first being some fabulous lip liners that I need to remember to reach for more often. This is the UOMA Beauty Salute to the sun Mascara.
I have to say this mascara is both delightful and frustrating all at the same time. First the delightful bit. Are you ready? First with eyes open.
Then with eyes shut.
Can you see the delightful?
Yeah, this mascara will make the lashes long and thick. It has a fluffy wand. Also it is a nourishing mascara and not only feels really weightless on the lashes but my lashes don’t dry out at all when I wear this mascara. It hasn’t flaked on me and it hasn’t caused me any problems. I do use a waterproof makeup remover on it even though it isn’t water proof because that just makes it come off easier.
The real issue is that it has started clumping on me. There is a little you can see at the end of my closed lash, but I just used a lash comb after the pic and it took them off. So that isn’t the problem.
In the photo you can start to see the wand getting a little clumpy. If you look a little closer at the tube you can see it is getting very gunky as well.
I like this mascara but it took very few uses for it to start getting this way. For me this is a waste of product and it means that I will not be able to use this mascara for as long a I would use other mascaras.
In general I throw away mascaras at the end of three months. I only keep a few open so at the end of three months i have used all of the product (or most of it) in the tube. I can already tell you that this won’t last the three months. I can push some of the product back into the tube with the wand, but some of it will have to be wiped off and will be lost just so that the tube doesn’t become crusty.
Here is the deal though. It is a fabulous mascara. I just won’t be getting as many uses out of it as i would any of my other mascaras. somewhere deep in my thrifty soul that bothers me. However if asked if I would repurchase the UOMA Beauty Salute to the sun Mascara, I would have to say yes. it is a fantastic product. However i would more than likely purchase it when i know I am going to an event where I need to wear mascara for a long time and where even though I don’t wear false lashes, I know other people will be wearing them. This won’t give me flash lashes but it will make them thick and full. I just simply wouldn’t open the tube until I was getting ready for the event. And then after the event i would wear the mascara every day until it was gone and I could no longer wear it any more. Because this is not a mascara you want to let sit. Open, use and be aware that you won’t get to keep it long but while it is here, your lashes will be fabulous.
