prestige my blackest lashes review


See the clumpy wand?

So, I absolutely adore prestige's mascara 'my biggest lashes', it is my second favorite mascara I have ever used. It extremely lengthens, volumizes, separates, doesn't flake or smudge - amazing really. (see photo below, last on the page).
When I saw 'my blackest lashes' at the store I just had to try it. I had quite high expectations, seeing how amazing biggest lashes performed. Well my first disappointment came with the brush. It's not very big (bigger brushes give bigger lashes) and it also grabs way too much product. It comes out in globs really. But it doesn't clump much if you run the brush through your lashes a few times. I didn't find it intensely 'black' as it claimed to be; Seemed the same as any 'very black' mascara color. It gave lot's of volume yes, but length and separation- not really. So overall, I'm not really impressed.
price: 8.99 CAD
rating: 3/5
This is with 2 coats:


Not overly black is it?



My love:

Hi Lexa,

Where did you find Prestige cosmetics in Canada? I am looking to find My Biggest Lashes but after googling around I didn't see that is sold in Canada (specifically Toronto). Thanks!

Hi E, you can find Prestige in some Zellers stores or at pharma plus. The majority of the products are average but the mascara is amazing! Also they make baked highlighters and bronzers that are very nice.

Awesome! Thanks Lexa!!

Hi Lexa,

I found it! And the first application of this mascara and it was great with lots of drama! However, I tried it again today, and it was extra clumpy and had to comb it out :( Do you find that the brush collects too much product?

Hi E! I'm glad you found it :)
I never had any clumping problems with it before, I usually use the wand to kind of brush through it a few times.
If you find there is too much coming off on the wand, wipe it on a paper towel first to remove the excess.
Hope that helps!
