As promised, we’re talking about Elizabeth Arden Grand Entrance Mascara today at STYLEanthropy! In case you missed the first post where I talked about the brand’s Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipsticks, read here. Now today, let’s talk about their latest beauty product, this mascara that will help you make a Grand Entrance at your next Spring Soiree!
I have pretty short and sparse lashes. So any help in the lash department, I’ll take it. If only lash extensions ain’t so expensive and doesn’t take up an hour or so to apply, I’ll go regularly. But since I have a budget and am always strapped for time, mascara will do! I was sent the latest mascara from Elizabeth Arden, the Grand Entrance, and I wanted to share my thoughts in case you’re looking for a new mascara to try.
Elizabeth Arden Grand Entrance Mascara Review
More often than not, the brush makes or breaks a mascara product. It’s as important as the formula. It will depend on the brush how well the product will apply to the lashes. I love that this one is curved. It helps get the product in really good. And after all, our eyes are curved. So it only makes sense that they make a curved brush too. I have other (older) mascaras with a curved brush and I absolutely prefer it over the straight ones. It just makes it easy to apply!
Volume and Definition
When I applied the Elizabeth Arden Grand Entrance Mascara, I was pretty impressed with the volume and definition it gives my lashes. Mind you, I have really sparse lashes. But in the photo above, you would think my lashes are thick. It gave it definition too, especially if you saw it in person.
Lengthen and Curls?
After taking these photos though, I actually played with it more and added another layer of mascara. It helped lengthen it more. As for the curl, I didn’t notice that the brush helped curl my lashes. I didn’t use a lash curler to see how the brush will do. There maybe some strands that stood out. But overall, I didn’t notice a significant difference.
Smudge, Clumps, Removal
One of the things I noticed about this mascara at first application is that there were no clumps. Usually, other mascaras would easily clump. But this one is pretty good! It also didn’t smudge. This product is water-resistant. However, it was pretty easy to remove with a makeup remover. One of the things I hate when wearing waterproof mascara is how hard it is to take off, even with a makeup remover. And sometimes, the more you rub or wipe to get rid of the mascara, some of the lashes come off too. Happy that this doesn’t take up a lot of wiping because the last thing I need are lashes falling off!
Price Point and Colors
For a luxe product, this is priced lower than most luxury beauty brands. This retails for $24 and comes in black and brown shades. I know others who have lighter hair would love and prefer the brown. So… thank you Elizabeth Arden for giving us options!
Full disclosure: thanks to Elizabeth Arden for sending these makeup products, but note, all opinions are my own. Hope this review helps you decide in case you’re looking for a new mascara to try. Happy Friday, loves! Please come back to STYLEanthropy soon for more beauty and fashion inspo!
