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.
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.
