Review : Buxom Buxom Lash Mascara in Blackest Black

Hi Everyone! Today I'm really excited, because I have a review of my favorite mascara for you :). If you have been reading my blog, you know that I initially received this mascara as a sample at Sephora. I didn't think about it too much back then, and pushed it back in my makeup drawer, but now it's definitely one of my holy grails. Finding "the perfect mascara" can be difficult and frustrating time by time, but I guess some things are just found by accident. 
Before I get into the review, I do want to mention that different mascaras work differently on different lashes. So, the mascara that works for me might not work for you. It all depends on your eye shape, length  & texture of your lashes, etc etc. So let's get right into it!
1. My lashes? I have very straight / short Asian lashes
 - Has a plastic wand which I like
 - Separates and lengthens up to 300%. No joke.
 - Makes my lashes look "fuller"
 - No clumping
 - No crunchy feeling
 - It's not a water proof mascara, but it doesn't flake or smudge during the day
 - Formulated without parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, phthalates
3. Dislikes ?
 - Wand is a bit too big for my eyes - hard to get into the corners
 - Ugly packaging. The finish is even worse than some drugstore mascaras.
 - Not as pigmented as I want it to be
4. Value ? $19 at Sephora. It works well for me, so I don't think it's expensive.
5. Overall Rating ? 4.5/5. This product has everything that I want in a mascara and I couldn't be more pleased. However, I do wish the wand was a bit smaller.
6. Repurchase ? Yes!
And now,
 you're about to see my bald eyes... If that makes any sense... Sorry that the pictures are out of focus!! :(
Huge difference, right? lol

Hope you liked my review and thanks for stopping by <3
Much love,


  1. WOW that was ahuge difference! My lashes are really short and thin. I gave up using mascara and I wear false lashes instead.lol

  2. oh WOW!!! i need this asap because I have "asian" type lashes too even though i'm not asian lol. it worked so well for you

  3. woa, so it really works!
    i just thought they were hyped or something.
    i agree with you. if it works, $19 isn't so bad. nowadays drugstore ones are easily $10.

  4. that looks amazing! I've been wanting to try that mascara for ages but it's so hard to get in australia. thankyou for doing the review

  5. lol ugly packaging makes me depressed sometimes XD i'll be less likely to reach for it! the brush on this one is interesting tho! your lashes look so nice :D
