I Tried Fenty's New Mascara and the Brush Is Unlike Anything I've Used Before
Hi, I'm Bree and I have a very recent and very real Fenty Beauty addiction. I've known for a while just how good Rhi-Rhi's prods are, they basically reached cult-status the minute they dropped — and they were the first makeup brand to introduce actual skin tone inclusivity — but it's wasn't until very recently I got to try them out (and fall in love with them) for myself.
One of the perks of my job is that I get to try new beauty products before they hit the shelves, and I audibly squealed with delight last week when Fenty's new Full Frontal Volume, Lift & Curl Mascara ($39) landed on my desk (btw, it's available at Sephora from Jan 16 so round up your cash, ladies).
Upon first inspection of the mascara, I noticed that the brush head was totally different to anything I've seen before, and trust me guys, I've seen some mascaras in my day. What sets this mascara a part from the others in your beauty arsenal, is that it's been designed with a flat-to-fat brush head that follows the same shape as your eye. This means you can maneuver the brush around your eye, reaching every single lash, giving you the perfect doe-eyed definition.
The formula is also buildable without becoming chunky. A solid amount of product comes out on the brush head and the flat-to-fat edges means you can fan the mascara evenly across your lashes.
To get a full-fanned-out lash look, I recommend using the fat side to build the product up to your desired level of thickness, then use the flat side of the brush to push the lashes up and extend the product from root to tip. If you'd like some additional length, I recommend going back in with the tip of the brush and using it in a vertical motion to achieve feathering strokes that coat the tips.
