First Impressions :: Physicians Formula Organic Wear Mascaras

-|:Youtube :|: Facebook :|: Twitter :|: PrettyDNA :|: Vlog :|: FourSquare :|: Instagram :|Bloglovin :|-

I've always had a weird habit of buying high-end mascaras and never fully utilizing them. Yesterday, while cleaning out my makeup, I decided to dump all of my mascaras and start anew.  I was always curious about Physicians Formula Organic Wear Mascaras, so bought two at rite aid for $9.99 (it was BOGO so the second one was free :).

One is Lash Boosting Mascara and the other one is Jumbo Lash Mascara.

The shape of the bottle is enticing and 70% organic seems better than non-organic formula (I dunno, I'm a sucker for marketing gimmicks).

I didn't want to open and try out both at the same time, so I opened up the Jumbo Lash bottle for review. The smell of the mascara isn't my cup of tea. I'm not a huge fan of perfumed products, but I'm also not a fan of such weird-smelling products. It almost smells like rubber and plastic combined.

The brush is round with short spikes to separate and coat your lashes. I don't mind these wands as it helps avoid the dreadful spider legs look. It's great for coating the upper lashes, but when applying it to my almost nonexistent lower lashes, it tends to get messy.

Okay, so now with the application and my first impression.

- Application is smooth and non-crummy. It's actually rather wet and very silky.
- Drying time takes a bit long
- Color is pitch black (very good)
- Double coater? no problem - you can keep building additional coats without clumping
- Spider legs? nope.
- Lengthening? It does elongate your lashes, but it's not a crazy 'OMG!' amount.
- Volumizing? Not really..

Here's some before after shots.
As you can see my natural lashes are brittle, short and limp.
Even when curled, it lacks volume and length.
(Please ignore my red eyeball..)

And here's the after.
VERY silky texture. Lashes look extremely glossy and smooth.
Lower lashes can be a bit tricky if you don't have much to work with like me.

Here's a better comparison at similar angles.

Overall, Jumbo Lashes is great for lengthening, but it's not a volumizing mascara.
I will have to try this out more before coming to a final verdict, but so far, I'm okay with it.
So far, it seems decent! :)

  1. I wish they had physicians formula readily available here in the uk xxx

    1. They don't? :( Bummer.. I thought I saw some UK Bloggers blog about it (that's how I found out). I guess they all got it sent from the here

  2. Oh yay! i was thinking about getting Physicians Formula Mascara, thanks for the review!! so glad you are blogging more!!!!

  3. how does it hold curl throughout the day?

    1. I think it has a lot to do with how strong your lashes are. My lashes are like crumbling paper.. very brittle and thin. With that condition, I think the curl holds moderately okay. The formula is silky (not as thick as other leading mascaras out there) so I'd say somewhere in the middle.

  4. Ohh the packaging looks amazing!

    1. haha, I thought it was going to be bulkier, but it's actually quite thin and fat (if that makes any sense) :p

  5. Your lashes look gorgeous with this mascara on!

  6. Thanks for the review! I'm looking for a volumising mascara, I already have the best lengthening one ever! (by clinique)
