This is a very visually exciting mascara from Givenchy which I had heard about a few times before but never actually given it a try. The masacra is designed to hold on to lashes at the root to give the lashes volume and body but separating and defining the lashes also, its unique spherical wand shape claims to be suitable for any eye shape and to reach all parts of the lashes. The small and round shape of the brush definitely does allow for more accurate application and to move around the eye with ease, but i'd say its most appealing benefit is that it certainly does deliver with defining the root of the lash with no need for another coat in order to do so. It immediately gives precise results and successfully seperates the lashes at the base so gives the lashes a 'panoramic' effect.
It is not the most lengthening mascara I have used, but I think the depth and intensity it gives at the root makes up for it, particularly if you prefer a more defined and shaped look to a lengthened one. My only other set back is that it does take a while to dry, and did lose its shape slightly throughout the day but these are only small negatives to the product that easily can be rectified, in general I think this is a brilliant mascara.
The packaging is also lovely, as with all Givenchy make-up products, with their signature 'G' branding around the top of the mascara. It is relatively small so travels well with its compact design. In terms of price, it is more of a high-end mascara (£20) but I think it merits investing in it and indeed there are some fantastic affordable mascaras out there but this one provides luxury, is innovative and has a different approach towards mascara application with successful results.
