Product Review: Fresh Supernova Mascara, Cargo Lash Activator Mascara
I only have two words to describe Fresh Supernova Mascara ($25 US for the full size version) and CARGO Lash Activator mascara (originally $35 US for the full size version, now $8.80): Smudge City. It's a shame because the product descriptions on the Sephora website promise such great things. Bursting with ingredients that nourish and condition lashes (meadowfoam seed oil, linden extract, fortified panthenol), Fresh claims to coat lashes in shiny, smudge-proof, good-for-you colour with just one coat. Meanwhile, CARGO's formula includes marine algae extracts and peptides to boost lash growth and prevent breakage and loss.
However, similar to my experiences with Benefit BADgal Lash, I found that both mascaras looked okay for 1-3 hours, then smudged very badly. The brushes were user-friendly and delivered long, thick, clump-free lashes. But having to keep checking for smudges in mirrors and any shiny surfaces I come across? I can live without that, thanks.
Has anyone else out there tried Fresh Supernova or CARGO Lash Activator?
