Review: Giorgio Armani Black Ecstasy Mascara

This is a review of the Giorgio Armani Black Ecstasy mascara.

As a rule, I don’t purchase high end mascaras.  Because I like to throw out my mascaras after 2-3 months, I don’t find high end mascaras to be worth it.  There are a lot of great mascaras at the drugstore!

However, I received a sample of this mascara, and I have to say that it is a great product!

What it does: (from the Sephora website)

Black Ecstasy features a lightweight formula and unique brush that achieve the ultimate volume, length, and curl in a flash. The cylindrical, multidirectional brush is designed to capture and coat every lash. Formulated with four patented, multi-effect waxes for seamless application, this mascara is formulated with exclusive color-boosting polymers to coat lashes with intense black pigment

 

Price: $32

Brush:  This product had a natural bristle wand. The claim implies that the wand is special, but the wand on the sample was rather normal.

Availability: This product is available at Sephora, Nordstrom, and the Armani website.

 

What I thought:

This product gave me full, thick lashes with minimal clumping. I liked how my lashes looked after I used this product.  I read that some bloggers experienced flaking, but I did not have any smudging or flaking after wearing this product.  I can’t tell you if the claim about black pigment is true or not since I already have black eyelashes! (but seriously, are there “black” mascaras out there which are not really that black? I can never tell the difference)

 

Would I (re)purchase?  Maybe.  While I liked this mascara, I really don’t know if it is worth $32, which would buy me 2-3 mascaras at the drugstore.

 

Have you tried any high end mascaras lately?
