The search for my new favorite mascara isn’t an easy one. I decided to try one by E.L.F because it’s very affordable, and I liked the idea of a 3-in-1 mascara.

The 3-in-1 because it claims to lengthen, define and volumize. I like the brush, I like that it has the round tip, because it makes it easy to reach in the inner corners and is amazing for the lower lash line. But what about the formula?

It’s quite wet, which can unfortunately transfer on the skin, and is annoying since you have to clean it up. I do think it makes my lashes look longer and more defined in the way they’re blacker but they can get clumpy a little too fast. As for volume, I was disappointed, but I’m very picky and that’s probably why I don’t have a favorite mascara anymore>

Overall, I don’t hate this mascara but I don’t love it either. It doesn’t exactly do what I’d want it to do, but it’s still quite good. It’s one to consider if you’re on a budget, but I won’t repurchase it myself. The hunt is still on, do you have any recommendation?
