FusionBeauty

Birchbox Breakdown

Legend has it that the ancient Egyptians invented mascara by lining their eyes with kohl. Lucky for us, the makeup bag staple has come a long way since Cleopatra’s time. Case in point: this high-tech volumizing formula from FusionBeauty. The creamy formula glides on easily, and it’s full of nutrients to promote thicker, less brittle lashes. The oversized wand is designed to help you thoroughly coat each lash.

How it Works

This jet black mascara doesn’t just add fullness to your lashes—the nourishing formula helps them grow stronger over time. Ingredients like avocado oil, wheat flower lipids, and keratin proteins are gradually released, conditioning your lashes even after you wash off your mascara.

How to Use

Gently wiggle the wand at the base of your lashes, applying evenly from the inside of your eye to the outer corner. You’ll only need one coat for long, glamorous lashes. For even more drama, apply additional coats.

Did absolutely nothing

I have very light eyelashes, so I thought this might add a little something, a little oomph, to an otherwise no makeup face. NOPE. I coated and coated my lashes and didn't see any difference.

Hated it

I got this mascara in my birch box and it had to be the worst mascara i have ever tried. The bristles on the wand all stuck together and the formula was nothing special.

Nope.

This stuff was absolutely horrible. It was REALLY clumpy. It didn't even stick to my lashes. The bristles on the brush were even stuck together. I thought maybe the product I received was just old, but after reading all the other reviews it was obviously a constant issue. Don't even bother.

Da FuQ?

No. no no and no. Mascara is not supposed to be powdery and dry like this. It didn't stick to my lashes. Went on in clumps, and more ended up falling down to my under eye area that sticking to my lashes. I know this is described as a 'drier formula", but it still seems like something is wrong with this product. Was it really really old and sitting outside in the sun of a swap meet for the past few years, or what?

dislike

The wand is really thick. I had a really hard time getting it on to my upper lashes. Also the formula was pretty dry which made application even more difficult.

UGH, no.

This is horrible. It's clumpy and messy and just no. It's not "XL" it's just no. There are dozens of mascaras that are much better than this one, don't waste your time.

Maybe it as old

Maybe mine was old but it was hard and I actually thought it was an old dried up mascara. I hadn't ever opened it.
I am not sure if that is just the way it is. I would not ever buy it though. It took a lot of coats to just get a good covering of it and I don't wear it thick. It didn't do anything for me at all.

Does nothing

At first I thought the thing was empty, because it does absolutely nothing for my lashes. I could put on 12 coats and it still looks like I'm not wearing mascara.

Will never buy. Ever.

Old and Dry

I couldn't use this sample even once as it was already dried up and clumpy. I had received it a month or two earlier but had never opened it.
