Here's a review on Eye of Horus Goddess Mascara
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available locally in Glamourbox
I'd like to believe that the ancient Egyptians are one of the most trendsetting civilizations in the world for they have invented one of the timeless makeup looks in the history of beauty-what else? The dramatic eyeliner. In general, the ancient Egyptians wore makeup as a sign of holiness, specifically the heavily- lined eye because they believed that it would protect them from eye diseases and ward off evil spirits. Inspired and fascinated by the secret preparations and traditional ingredients found in ancient Egyptian Cosmetology, Australian makeup brand Eye of Horus has created a line of mascara, eyeliners, and eye kohls for sexy, smoldering, divine, and stand-out eyes.

EYE OF HORUS MASCARA IN DETAIL
What I got is the Goddess Mascara, and it is from the November box of Glamourbox. Eye of Horus said that this mascara is patterned after the formulation of the ancient Egyptians. However, I think it's already made with modern preservatives, and they've omitted natural Kohl-which was traditionally used by the ancient Egyptians as a darkening pigment for their eye products-since it was proven to be toxic. Needless to say, the formulation is not traditional as advertised. Nevertheless, it's still good because a majority of the ingredients are natural, and it is Paraben-Free.
Tube is a little chunky, but it has a sexy, vintage feel to it. :D
The wand is made from plastic. (?) It's flexible, thus enabling you to navigate through your lashes with ease. This wand can lengthen, separate, and volumize lashes: The tip of the wand has packed bristles, which makes it good for volumizing lashes, while the middle part up to the bottom of the wand has evenly- spaced bristles, which makes it good for styling and lengthening lashes. My description may have sounded a little complicated but nope, in actual, it's easy to use-just use it like how you'd normally use a mascara wand. I've also noticed that it prevents clumpy application.
Will it make me goddess- worthy? Let's see!
- The consistency is smooth, and it dries up very quickly. During my first trial, I've noticed that it made my lashes feel a little stiff, but I got used to it eventually because the stiffness is the tolerable kind.
Application technique: Apply mascara starting at the base, and move slowly towards the tips to ensure even application.
The mascara has awesome staying power: It stays put all day without flaking and smearing. It makes lashes look fuller and more defined. It slides off easily with warm water but strangely, the mascara does not yield to makeup removers. However, I think I won't buy it again because I could find a cheaper product that can do what it does. But it's good for people with sensitive eyes and for those who are looking for a natural mascara with superb staying power.
Eye of Horus Mascara is available in GLAMOURBOX.
