Besame Cosmetics Gingerbread 1930s Waterproof Mascara

besame 1930s mascaraBesame Cosmetics has come out with Gingerbread 1930s Waterproof Mascara, a classic mascara the consists of natural conditioning oils and food grade colorants. The natural-only ingredients come presented in the Besame signature gold plated packaging decorated with Chrysanthemums.

Even though this formula is waterproof it doesn’t leave that brittle feeling on your lashes like typical waterproof mascaras. To get any volume you do have to apply several coats. Initially lashes do look defined, but as I tried to get a more voluminous look by applying more mascara, the mascara seemed to gather at the base of my lash line.

So why would I continue to wear a mascara that really is average on the rating scale? Because it is unique in its delicious Gingerbread fragrance. This mascara smells soooo good! When the wand comes out of the tube and as you are applying it–yum–a sweet and spicy aroma. No worries though, once applied, you can no longer smell it so it shouldn’t affect even the most sensitive eyes.

While I haven’t really been too much of a fan recently of Besame’s mascara’s, I am still in love with their Lip Glazes, Enchanting Lipstick and eye shadows.

Have you used this mascara yet? How would you compare it to other mascaras?
