The past few months I’ve been hearing lots of good things about the Catrice Glam & Doll mascara. I haven’t used a Catrice mascara in ages and because everyone was so positive about it, I decided I had to try it. So that’s what I did. I bought it, I put it on my lashes and tested it thoroughly. Today it’s time for the review. If you’re interested in finding out more about this mascara, make sure you continue reading!
The Catrice Glam & Doll mascara comes in a shiny lilac/purple tube. It has a bit of a twisted pattern going on and it’s a little smaller in the middle. The text on the packaging is written in silver and it has one black sticker on the lid telling you this is the blackest mascara and that it gives you the appearance of false lashes.
Catrice has quite a lot of mascara’s in their collection. Back in 2012 when I started doing makeup I used them a lot, but not long after that I started using Maybelline and Rimmel and nowadays I prefer using my Benefit or Tarte mascara. The reason why is mainly because of the brush. Most Catrice mascara’s have hairy brushes and I prefer rubbery, spiky ones.
The nice thing about this mascara and the main reason why I decided to give it a try is because this one has one of those rubbery, spiky wand. There aren’t too many hairs/spikes and it isn’t enormous so I figured I might like it. The special thing about this wand is that it’s slightly curved. This adds curl to the lashes, which is something I can always use.
Because this wand doesn’t have too many spikes/hairs it’s really good at separating the lashes. I feel like those big hairy brushes tend to clump your lashes together, while this one coats them one by one and really separates them.
When it comes to the effect this mascara gives me I’m not disappointed. It clearly separates my lashes very well and it adds lots of length and curl. The only thing it doesn’t do as much as I had hoped is add volume. But if I really want that I can always use an extra mascara to get that.
The mascara wears really nicely throughout the day. Especially if you bake your under eye area. One day I didn’t feel like baking and that day the mascara did transfer a little onto my under eye area. This might just be because I have pretty watery eyes, but it is something I feel like I should mention.
Overall this is quite a good mascara, especially considering the price. I do like the effect of it, but I would use it in combination with a more voluminous mascara to really add that volume that this mascara doesn’t give you. Aside from that I think it works really nicely, I like the wand and it does stay in place pretty well. If you’re on the hunt for a mascara that separates, lengthens and curls the lashes, this might be a great one for you!
The Catrice Glam & Doll Mascara is available at the drugstore for €3,99.
