NARS Climax Mascara Review

Saturday 25 May 2019

NARS have recently been trickling through some new releases, and one which I was excited to try was the NARS Climax Mascara (oh NARS, you and your naughty names!). As a brand, I find NARS always looks like it belongs backstage at a large runway show or something like that as their packaging looks simple and straight to the point and I haven't tried a NARS product which I haven't enjoyed.
NARS Climax Mascara has been marketed to give explosive volume, a hardcore lift, a softcore feel with a featherweight touch and no clumping or smudging. So, my thoughts...The packaging is original NARS except they have gone for a glossy red tube instead of their usual matte black packaging. I expected the tube to be quite weighty, but it is very lightweight, so that's great for travelling with and so on. 
When I first looked at the big thick fluffy brush, I was a little apprehensive as sometimes these brushes can be a little difficult to use and to get a full coverage with, however I found the wand easy to use and had very little product on my eyelids after application. I do have quite hooded eyelids and so sometimes I do get quite a lot of mascara on them. The formula of Climax feels really lightweight yet ever so slightly creamy and it is perfect for layering, especially if like me you weren't blessed in the lash department.
I love how this mascara curls the lashes, it is definitely one of the best mascaras I have tried for curling and lifting them, and I found that they stayed curled throughout the day rather than drooping back down like they so often do. Due to it having such a lightweight formula, I was able to build the layers without there being any clumping on the lashes, just leaving them really defined and I had sort of a fanned-out effect which looked natural but still kick-ass.

NARS is a higher-end beauty brand and so the NARS Climax Mascara does come in at £21.00, but I think that when you find a mascara that really works for you, this sort of price isn't too bad. Plus, drugstore mascaras range from £10-15.00 nowadays and so I find it quite reasonable on the grand scale of things.

You can find the NARS Climax Mascara online at NARS here.

All the Loves,
