This is a review on the Cargo Lash Activator mascara. The tube I have is a travel size.
First thing I have to say is that the wand/brush on this mascara is very unique. Its extremely rubbery & flexible. Personally I'm not a huge fan of plastic or rubber mascara wands but this one is an exception. It separates the lashes very well & my lashes love to stick together in certain area's. It also doesnt create clumping or bother the roots of my lashes either (which is why I generally dislike rubber or plastic mascara wands). There is a slight curve to the wand that makes it extremely easy to go with the curl of your lashes. The formula of the actual mascara is lovely. I noticed that when first used its a little wet (i prefer mine less watery) but after a couple uses it becomes the perfect consistency, in my opinion. As I said before the wand doesnt create clumping & the formula itself doesnt clump either. Over all I love this mascara. I would repurchase it in a heart beat & I dont think I've ever repurchased a mascara before!
Here are a few photo's of the mascara on my eye after being curled with a lash curler (I use a tweezerman curler & pulse about 5 times on each eye). I applied 2 coats of the mascara letting the first coat sit for about 1minute. I like to do my first coat then do my brows & then apply the 2nd coat.
