Origins GinZing Brightening Mascara

I think I’ve become a bit of a mascara snob recently… it takes a lot to make me want to try a new mascara at the moment. I used to be so fickle, would rush through new mascaras like they were going out of fashion and constantly have 5/6 on the go at any one time. But I’ve become far pickier recently, when I find one I like I’ve wanted to stick with it until it runs out rather than waste it.

But this one has made me move away from my other current favourite (that’s been featured in a few face fave posts over past couple of months) – this is from Origins and I’m seriously impressed. Firstly, it has my essential big fat brush. So already gets extra brownie points for that – but also the formula s pretty darn fab.


I like how this mascara is really black, the brush is nice and fluffy so really coats each lash, but also separated and adds curl so lashes are really made the most of. The brush has a mixture of longer and shorter bristles to get a mixture of effect.
If I’m being really picky the formula does take a little longer to dry so can end up with smudges on upper eye lid (or lower if you sneeze just after applying…but that might just be me) – but once it does dry it stays really well. No flaking or anything.
Lovely stuff, yet another winning product from Origins!
