Beauty find: Clarins Supra Volume Mascara

July 9

One year ago (how time flies!), you might remember that I flew out to Barcelona with Clarins to shoot some exciting videos with bloggers from around the world. One of the main launches that was shared confidentially at the time was the brand new launch of the key product, Clarins Supra Volume Mascara. To give you the scientific brief, the mascara includes two active ingredients, Carnauba wax and Cassie flower wax, as well as a cocktail of plant waxes, both that promise to increase your lash volume by 17.6% in 4 weeks (definitely the perfect mascara to use in addition to your lash serums). I love the fact that it has both make up (a volumizing mascara) and a lash care aspect.

I’ve been using the mascara since it launched, and I love the fact that it doesn’t clump up the lashes. The ultra-supple fibres on the brush are great at gripping every lash when you put it on while making you sure you get product on every lash when you apply the mascara. In terms of the color, the formula is a concentrated carbon black with ultramarine pigments to give you an intense color which, naturally, makes lashes appear thicker.

I must say, I’m pretty excited with the direction beauty is going, and the fact that a lot of care (whether for the lips, lashes or skin) goes into the latest products on the market.
