I recently went on a holiday to Europe so I spent a lot of time hanging around the duty free areas of airports as I waited for connecting flights.
I found Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lash Extending Mascara going out for $10 in Kuala Lumpur airport (I think… it’s all a bit of a blur now). $10 for a genuine Elizabeth Arden mascara was very cheap and a deal not to be missed I decided so I bought it and carried on to my journey in stinky hot humid Europe.
I started to use this mascara when I was in Italy when I had given up on wearing foundation and much make up at all because it was all dripping off of me with heat.
This is NOT a mascara for humid weather. It stayed wet on my lashes for much longer than it should have and when I bumped them with my hand I got black all over me. Not cool!
So now I’m back in fairly cold Australia and the mascara is performing better but I must admit it really is not the best mascara I have ever used. It is very plain and nothing special. You could get the same coverage from some Maybelline Great Lash.
I am a huge convert and evangelist for Australis Voluptulash and Killer Curves mascaras (Check out this post to see how amazing they are) and this Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Mascara does not compare. I would not purchase it again. Sticking with my lovely Australis mascara.
Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lash Extending Mascara retails at $30 apparently (they don’t sell their cosmetics online from their official Australian website), and $10 from duty free in Kuala Lumpur. 😉
