A while ago, while passing through Changi Airport, I picked up a twin pack of the Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lash Lengthening Mascara for a mere S$39 (approx RM97 or RM48.50 each). That makes each mascara about the price of a drugstore or pharmacy brand! But does it work – that’s important.
I’d never used any cosmetics from Elizabeth Arden before. The reason I bought this was because I got it confused with Helena Rubenstein which is supposed to have very good mascara. Yes, I must have been blind not to notice the difference 😛
The mascara comes in a lux looking gold tube and the brush is the traditional brush bristles not the new fangled rubber bristles. The brush head is also rather large. Its all rather basic especially after trying out new fangled mascara like the Lancome Oscillation or Guerlain le 2 Mascara or the Diorshow Iconic.
I thought I’d hate it.
After going through my first tube, I must say that I don’t hate it. Its not exactly holy grail material, but its pretty good for the price I paid, if I’m looking for a basic mascara.
