Mascara Challenge No #6 - Eye of Horus Goddess Mascara

Carrying on with the Challenge.  This was sent to me to try and i thought id kill two birds with one stone and add it to the challenge!

I hadn't actually heard of Eye of Horus before, which isn't a bad thing, its just one of many brands that are the ones you have to have a good search for, unlike the high street brands.  I think the fact that it also originates from Australia, may have something to do with that too! We all know that each country stocks brands that others don't, and i think this is one of them, but they are now making their items available for us in the UK.

So the mascara I'm trying is called Eye of Horus "Natural Goddess Mascara" which costs £17 for a full size.  Its described as:
"Uniquely formulated in the style of the ancient Egyptians with natural waxes and the revered Moringa Oil, found in Tutankhamen’s tomb. Ideal for sensitive eyes, Eye Of Horus Goddess Mascara strengthens and lengthens for Ultimate Goddess lashes. Natural based formula wont clump, run or smudge.  Volumising, Nourishing, Paraben Free"

It arrived in a  very sleek and "ooh" black bag and wrapped safely in black tissue paper inside and an info sheet depicting the other items for sale - all for the eyes - very smooth!

The mascara was housed in, again, a nice black box with golden writing and symbols on, declaring it "strengthens and lengthens and accentuates the natural beauty of your lashes"

The tube is a nice shape, following with the black and gold theme. The brush, is a long brush with amazingly small individual brushes.

I have to say this was definitely not like any other mascara i have used.  Its extremely delicate and lightweight.  It only pulls out of the tube enough to coat the brush, and no excess, so no need to wipe the brush at the edge of the tube to get less on.  The individual bristles are coated. There are no clumps or any other bits of mascara in between them.  It really is something I've never seen.

Putting it on....again, something I've never experienced. And again, the only word i can think of is delicate.  It coats your lashes so softly, and almost looks like each lash is coated on its own.  I was pretty amazed by this one.  Its not massively obvious that its mascara- it can easily be passed off as you having long, luscious lashes, and i personally love that! I hate it when it looks so clogged.
I use  2 coats, just to be sure of a good coating.  And all the second coat did was just darken the lashes and add in where it was needed.

So, picture shows it all i think!  4 hours later and its STILL firmly in place, no smudging, no darkness around the eyes where it may have bled out.  I think i love this mascara!

If you're looking for something heavy, like for a night out or something, this isn't the one for you.  if you're looking for one for daily wear, this is DEFINITELY the one for you.

The only thing i couldn't test was its waterproofness. But having said that, it took a couple of scrubs with a facial wipe, so I'm going out on a limb to say it may well stay on - assuming you're not in a downpour for 2 hours - I'm not sure any mascara can be THAT waterproof!!!

Onto the 8 points:
1) Cost (for full size) -£17.00
2) ease of application - Very easy
3) volumises lashes - draws the lashes out and really does lengthen the lashes
4) Smudgeproof - Yep
5) Any clogging -It was totally clog free
6) Hardiness (how long it lasts for) and if it looks just as good as when i put it on - pretty much all there by the end of 4 hours, the lower lashes were missing a bit, but id say 90% still on
7) How easy to get off at the end of the day? - took a few scrubs with the face wipe, but comes off completely using one wipe
8) Marks out of 10 for all of the above - id say a good 9 for this one! (mark down one as i couldn't test waterproofness!)
