Josie Maran Black Oil Mascara

RATING (out of 5 stars): 4 stars

COST: $22

THE SKINNY: This deluxe sample came in a recent Sephora order and I absolutely love it. Mascara that actually feels like it is good for your lashes!

Josie Maran Black Oil Mascara contains the wonder stuff, argan oil, as it conditions and does all the great mascara stuff -- lengthening, volumizing, lifting and curling. Here's what in it, according to the website: "Argan Black Oil Mascara treats your lashes to the nourishing lash-softening effect of 100% Pure Argan Oil mixed with blackest-black iron mineral pigments, and infused with the lash strengthening properties of bamboo—delivered in an innovative 5 ball brush that reaches every lash."

It was easy to apply, lasted all day and did not flake. The brush was a little awkward, but I wonder if part of the problem was the half-size brush in the sample.

It did take two to three coats to get the look I wanted, but it did look exceptionally nice.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep.

CHECK IT OUT: This only comes in one color -- black -- and is available from Josie Maran or Sephora.
