Lately, even when I’m not wearing a full face of makeup every day (the actual effort) I’m still throwing on a bit of mascara and some clear brow gel. So I’m all about mascara. When I first saw the news that Huda Beauty was releasing a mascara, I was just a bit meh about it. Then, when the details came out, the fact that it was basically two full-sized mascaras with different formulas at each end, is when I got excited. Fast forward a couple of months, I finally got my hands on it. Here’s my full Huda Beauty Legit Lashes review.
What does it claim?
So, the idea behind it is that you have two full-sized mascaras in one, that you can wear alone or layer together. It literally claims it’ll give you the most perfect lashes, that’ll last for twelve hours so you don’t have to reach for false lashes.
What’s it like?
The curl and length part of the mascara leaves your lashes super long and curly – obviously. But it also leaves your lashes looking SO fluffy. Ideal for a slightly dramatic day look, you know when everything is slightly more natural. Then, when you pair it with the volume side, is when you literally ’ooh’ out loud. It’s basically intense, there’s no other way to describe it. I’ve tried each side alone, and together, and I can’t find fault in it whatsoever.
They’re both gorgeous, alone and together. Not hard to work with, last perfectly all day with no smudging or transferring, and it’s not difficult to remove either.
I will warn you though, it’s in no way tear-proof. So if you’re planning on wearing it while watching Marley & Me, I’d strongly advise against it. Not ideal when it comes to mascara but sure look, it never claimed to be waterproof (or tear-proof) so we’ll move past that swiftly.
We’re going to have to get over the intense eye pic, I’m yet to master the right eye angles and I was in a hurry, so here we are.
Is it worth the buy?
Yes. That’s it, short and sweet! Honestly, this is the best mascara I’ve used in a long time. It ticks every box (not the waterproof one, but to be fair, they never claimed that). Your lashes look ten times longer, volumised, pitch black and fabulously curly. Plus, it doesn’t smudge and transfer all over the place, and it’s not a nightmare to remove either. Basically, you’re getting two full-sized mascaras too, so it’s 100% worth the buy. It comes in at around €27, well worth every penny.
