The Mascara Files: NYC BIG AND BOLD

I like the fun packaging.


Here’s a closeup before and after.

Overall picture. Ignore my crazy hair – I have no idea what I’m doing with it. It’s at a very awkward stage.

No mascara.

NYC Big and Bold:

This massive brush and thick formula can have a tendency to get clumpy if you second-coat, which I did. I’ll know better next time. The first coat was prettier and if I manage to snap another picture, I’ll put it in here.

Does it volumize: Yes.

Does it curl? I would say yes.

Does it smudge and bleed? No in my experience. Here’s a picture of me with tears brimming out of my eyes and no smearing (just that one tiny little black flake). I didn’t ask someone to make me cry for the picture below. But the timing was good. So I asked Nate to snap a quick picture for the blog. He’s used to my weirdness.

  1. Awww the crying eyes picture is sad :/ but it did test the mascara well. It’s so sad when two coats ruin the effect of the mascara, most of them just can’t handle it.
