Wow yesterday was so so busy I didn’t even get chance to get this post up, so here we are, it’s up!! Yaaay! 🙂
If you follow my blog/makeup journey on any of my social media (all linked below) then you’ll know I love trying out new mascaras. Usually I am impressed by a mascara, but until I had used this one I’d always felt I was missing out & wanted more from my mascara. NO MORE. THIS IS BOMB.
Girls & guys, if you haven’t tried this mascara you need it in your life, I’ve never had more complements than when I use this. This mascara is definitely one of the reasons why I decided to partner with Younique.
I have tried & tested this baby for months… at least half a year if not more. This is my second tube & that’s saying something with mascara. More times than not I don’t repurchase a mascara, I tend to buy a different one still on the search for that perfect mascara. Between repurchasing this I did try a couple of other mascaras to see what else there was to offer but I always came back to this – my previous mascara review wasn’t so positive unfortunately!
What Younique claim;
Clinically proven to visibly improve volume,
length, and definition with an intensely conspicuous coat
• For a truly multidimensional finish, go big with a second coat for dramatic lashes
• A blend of flexible polymers adds buildable volume to lashes
• Ophthalmologically tested
I would definitely agree with these claims, my lashes appear much longer & more voluminous with just one coat. The difference is amazing, plus since using this my natural lashes are much more healthy & have definitely grown. I know this as I was getting a lot of gaps in my lashes from other mascaras where they’ve been hard to get off & caused lashes to come out! Booo! Epic definitely gives my lashes a more curled appearance, I hate using lash curlers so this is a win!!
The flexible polymers claim comes from the fact one of the main ingredients in the mascara is beeswax. Beeswax is what creates the flexibility in mascaras & with Younique our ethos is “Nature. Love. Science” basically they pride themselves on being a natural based, high quality cosmetics company so using ingredients inspired by mother nature. I did research this myself, this website is great if you’re interested in the benefits of beeswax in a mascara, it was actually an interesting read.
This picture is between using different mascaras. Hate how stubby & lifeless my lashes look.
The wand & formula
These type of wands are by far my favourite, it’s a bristly wand rather than the hard plastic wands. I did used to like the plastic ones, but went off them a couple years ago as I kept jabbing myself in the eye! Ouch!🙈
Anyway, this mascara has a bristly wand, the bristles aren’t so soft where the mascara isn’t distributed well it’s inbetween! The bristles are a great depth so you can get a good amount of coverage on all lashes. It coats lashes I didn’t even realise I had!
The formula is not too wet & not too dry, it’s that perfect happy medium. I hate mascaras that are super wet as they get everywhere & I end up leaving them for a couple months to dry up a little. But not with this, as described above it coats the lashes great & definitely enhances them. I don’t feel the need to wear falsies at all. I dont notice any fall out throughout the day, which is everything when looking for a holy grail mascara!
Who wants black bits all over their flawless base? nobody.
PLUS the tube of product lasts ages, I’ve not had any problems with it drying up before being able to use it all up, this is one of my pet peeves with makeup!!
Love how fluffy & full Epic makes my lashes.
Overall this is definitely my holy grail mascara, one I always go back to. It is £19, but to me this mascara is worth every single penny. This mascara is one of the reasons I decided to partner with Younique, the before & afters really speak for themselves really.
