I have to admit that my tastes are all over the place when it comes to mascaras. I like everything from intense volumizing to lengthening, some that are dark, other's that are colored. It truly depends on the occassion, a girl can never be too prepared. For that reason I particularly love this mascara.
In general I like more of a wet look on my lashes but to cover all my bases it's nice to have a high quality yet low intensity mascara in my arsenal. My lashes are defined and volumized without looking unnatural or like I tried too hard, it's perfect when you want to pretend you're not wearing any makeup. Go with 1-2 coats for that.
I love that the color is a rich black that really works on my fair lashes. I have zero patience for non-black formulas. Even if I am going for something subtle you won't find me in a dark brown or gray tinted mascara. This one's virtually weightless so it doesn't weigh down my lashes and hurt my sensitive eyes. That is a huge plus in my book. As you'll see in my next Mascara Monday, not the same can be said for all mascaras.
For a day at the beach or similarly laid-back activity I highly recommend Korres Volcanic Minerals Volumizing Mascara. It has a natural look that ups the intensity of my eyes without screaming "Hello! I'm wearing mascara." It's great for those relaxing days. It doesn't smear or run like some other closer to nature brands. I haven't had issues with it running even in high heat and humidity or during my workouts.
My only complaint on this one is the organic scent. Yeah, it shouldn't bother me but I do smell it for a few seconds. Still, I'd prefer that to a synthetic fragrance that could irritate my eyes.
