Brand/Product: Face of Australia Impact-Full Volumising Mascara.
Colour: Blackest Black.
Price: I bought mine for $11.95 from Priceline. You can also buy it at Kmart, Big W or shop online.
Why We Love It: Face of Australia is Australian owned and very affordable. Check out the great little makeup tips Face of Australia have dotted throughout their website.
Verdict (Yay or Nay): A good mascara is a staple. But off course it has to be cruelty free.
Impact-Full gives length and volume without clumping. It lasts well and isn’t too flakey.
You may have read my review of Australis Lash TLC. So to compare the two, I found after a while the Australis Lash TLC had a build-up of mascara around the top of the bottle which after many uses spilled over the edges. This was a tad annoying as I ended up with smudges of mascara on other makeup products in the drawer. I haven’t had this problem with Impact-Full by Face of Australia. The mascara is well contained.
On the other hand I found the brush for TLC easier to use. TLC has a curved brush which makes the mascara much easier to apply. Impact-Full has a straight brush and I find sometimes I get a bit of mascara on my eyelid.
So which is best? Perhaps they should join forces.
I would probably choose Impact-Full by Face of Australia for the more volumising look and because it didn’t dot mascara around my makeup drawer. In terms of volume though, like TLC, don’t expect Kim Kardashian eyes. Impact-Full would be great with a curved brush.
