The new NARS Climax mascara is edgy, creative and fashion-focused. It is different, although not unique. Packaging aside this is still a mascara at the end of the day.
When it comes to down to it, I must say that I am a huge fan of the deep burnt red colouring that NARS chose for this product. It compliments the style and "image" of this mascara perfectly in my opinion. From the name being "Climax" to the intense and dramatic effect that this product supposedly gives to one's lashes, it is fair to say that I have been very excited about this product since first hearing about its release!
As mascaras go, I would have to tell you that this one is intense.
The brush itself is rigid and because of that, there is little flexibility when applying this product. The Climax mascara is not one that I would say 'hugs' the lashes - as it rather pushes against them as it is being applied. Since the brush to this mascara is also quite chunky, I would have to tell you that you can very easily catch and smudge product on the lid/ upper lash line.
Glitches aside, this is a very good mascara in my opinion.
It has a smooth, comfortable formula that coats each lash evenly and thoroughly.
With regards to the finish that this mascara gives to my own natural lashes, I could only tell you that I am very impressed! After generously layering and really building the Climax mascara, my lashes are left appearing much stronger overall. They are saturated but not clumpy. I really like how thick and volumised my lashes can look with the use of this product.
In all fairness, this is a mascara that takes patience. I find the most effective finish is achieved after taking one's time and really building the layers of this product up. Although, once it's time to stop - you'll know! It is a comfortable, non-irritating mascara that works for me! It gives length, pigmentation and a stunning volume... what more could a makeup lover want?
