The Balm What's Your Type? "the body builder" mascara

RATING (out of 5 stars): 2 stars

COST: $19

THE SKINNY: The Balm's body building mascara is just OK. The mascara is made with vitamin E and other additive that is supposed to produce a "highly pigmented formula ... that won't smear or weaken through the day." Sadly, my mascara usually wore off within about six hours.

This mascara is a nice, rich black. But the brush is thin and doesn't do much to promote length or volume. And it really didn't last. Well ... you couldn't see on my eyes, but I did get a lot of mascara washing off at end of night.

Overall, it was disappointing.

KEEP OR TOSS: Toss. I don't like the mascara or the brush.

CHECK IT OUT: This mascara also comes in a "tall, dark and handsome" option for length. Maybe this one has a better brush.
