Givenchy Base Mascara Perfecto review

Have you ever tried using a base mascara? This is the first time I have tried using a base mascara. My problem is, I am allergic to most of the mascara’s on the market. This has caused me to only use two mascara’s on the market which don’t burn my eyes to oblivion. Givenchy happens to be one of the two.

Since the mascaras I choose to use don’t flake, it had not occurred to me that I needed a base mascara; until now. Givenchy was kind enough to send me a sample of their fabulous Base Mascara Perfecto to test out, and review for you. It took me awhile to test it because I assumed I didn’t really need a base for my mascara; boy was I wrong!

The Givenchy Base Mascara Perfecto is so amazing! It eliminated clumping, and thickness; leaving finished eyelashes looking natural and perfect. My eye lashes look long, natural, and well, perfecto! The brush separates lashes so that they get an even amount of base, followed by mascara. This helps to give them volume without clumping, or making the lashes look artificially thick. They look amazing!

Givenchy’s Base Mascara Perfecto not only preps lashes for mascara, it coats them. The coating is natural wax which helps revitalize, and safeguard lashes with natural polymers that form a protective film on their surface. This is a game changer!

I’m so glad this is now a part of my daily beauty routine. Have you tried using a base mascara before? What did you think?

Dolce & Gabbana has created a fabulous new mascara for the fall 2013 season. Due to hit store shelves by October 2013, Dolce & Gabbana’s Passioneyes Duo Mascara Curl and Volume collection is expected to be the ultimate way to achieve beautiful, full lashes-and it is! Love this!

Passioneyes mascara is designed with natural ingredients including beeswax and tapioca which leave lashes conditioned and flexible.  This is a really important feature for me. I am allergic to the majority of mascara’s on the market. Mascara’s which claim to be natural or hypo-allergenic still cause severe irritation in my eyes. This has been a problem I have faced since I was in high school-which is (cough cough) over twenty years. I have always tried new mascara’s only to end up with an allergic reaction. It is very frustrating! Thankfully, for the first time in years, I am able to wear mascara! Thank you Dolce & Gabbana!

Dolce & Gabbana’s new Passioneyes Mascara has a curved application brush which instantly lengthens and curls lashes. I loved how full my eye-lashes looked after applying it! I applied Passioneyes Duo Mascara Curl and Volume in “Terra” at 8am in the morning and the mascara lasted all day! There wasn’t any flaking, clumping or irritation. Love that!

I am so excited to have discovered a mascara I can actually wear! I am thrilled with not only how my lashes look, but that Dolce & Gabbana’s natural formula can be worn by me! I am not allergic to it! I will definitely be wearing Dolce & Gabbana’s mascara for many years to come J

Dolce & Gabbana’s Passsioneyes Duo Mascara Curl and Volume is available in three colors; Nero, Terra and Blue Indaco. The mascara is priced at $32 and can be found online here.
