Not so much...Pop Beauty Smoky Lash Kapow Mascara


I love getting mascara samples in my Ipsy bags, because A) who isn't searching for the holy grail mascara?  But I also like that I can only use it for about 3 weeks and then throw it away.

So for the last few weeks I have been using Pop Beauty Smoky Lash Kapow Mascara, which is $18.50 for a full size tube. 

The Pop Beauty website describes this mascara as "an ultra black, extra glossy finish". Hmmm I did not see it as any different than a "black" mascara for pretty much any brand. 

The wand is your typical spoolie.  Pop Beauty also claims this is "Tear, Swim, Rub and Sweat proof", I don't know what is in it but it itches...oh does it make my eyes nuts!  I tried it alone to make sure it was the mascara that was killing me, and it was.  I know the mascara wasn't old... because it was a freshly opened tube and mascara has a 2 year shelf life unopened. 
Overall I just don't have much good to say, it's a no thank you for me!
What is your favorite/ least favorite mascara?


  1. Aw, sorry this didn't work for you. I hope you find the ones you absolutely love! My favorite mascara at the moment is the Benefit It's Real mascara. It's really amazing!

  2. My favorite mascara at the moment is Maybelline one by one volume express.

  3. glad you're honest! i LOVE benefits: they're real! mascara soooo much. xoxo

  4. studio gear masacara is my current favoriteas the brsuh is so soft and does pop up the lashes.

  5. What a bummer! I wish more brands would put out mini mascaras, alone or in packs with other mini items...I so hate to buy a full-sized mascara tube and then hate it. I've been loving my Physicians Formula mascara because it doesn't irritate my eyes (they get irritated VERY easily), but sadly it isn't waterproof or rubproof. Oh well, can't win 'em all. :P
