Fresh Supernova Mascara

RATING (out of 5 stars): 3.5 stars

COST: $25

THE SKINNY: This is a conditioning mascara that only comes in black. It's made with meadowfoam seed oil to help condition and add shine to your lashes.

It actually seems to work and added length and definition to my lashes with minimum clumping over time. And it does add a kind of shiny sleekness to my lashes.

I giggle every time I see the brush though. It looks like a giant, misshapen pipe cleaner, and each time I pull it out of the tube I think, "Really? This brush is going to work?"

No worries. It actually does a decent job of coating all the lashes. It's just strange looking.

My only complaint with this mascara it isn't going to last much past an eight-hour work day. But on the flip side, it is easy to remove with a basic cleaner. (Even on those days when I'm too lazy to take my makeup off at night, my lashes look clean and natural the next morning without raccoon eyes.)

And, as silly as it is to say, I do love the look of the bottle.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep. And keep giggling at the brush.

CHECK IT OUT: Read more the Fresh company philosophy online. If you don't want to commit $25 to a full-size product, you can sometimes find this mascara in on the sample kits offered regularly by Sephora.
