Too Faced LashGASM Mascara: Review

Hi beauties, how are you? I’ve been in a really good and positive mood the past couple of days and been enjoying the incredibly sunny weather! I started watching Game of Thrones two weeks ago and I’ve been obsessed with it! It’s SO good and I can’t believe it took me so long to start watching it! I always jump late on the bandwagon haha! So let’s talk makeup before I start rambling, shall we! For today’s post I wanted to talk about one of my all time favorite mascaras – Too Faced LashGASM ($21 / £18 ), which I absolutely love!

I believe that I got LashGASM for the first time last summer and I’ve been loving it ever since! I got the mini version of the mascara in one of their sets (I am such a sucker for sets full of minis hah) and the first thing that caught my eye was the gorgeous packaging! It is this beautiful black sleek packaging, which has embedded the name in pink and gold and also has some golden ornaments around the cap. Hands down – for me Too Faced make the prettiest packagings and I always fall in love with them! :) The wand of this mascara shocked me a bit the first time I saw it, even the one in the full size tube. It was tinnier than I expected but it turned out to be perfect! It makes that application really easy and you have great control over it, which is lovely. Just be extra careful because since the wand is tiny it is really easy to poke your eye (or at least I do it often hah) and it’s not a pleasant feeling. The head is also flexible but not too much, which is nice because it actually helps you with the application! (: The bristles are fab too– they are a good mixture of short and long ones and allow you to pick even the shortest / tinniest lashes! The shorter bristles near the tip make the access to the little lashes in the inner corner pretty easy, which is a huge bonus in my books! (: The wand and the bristles make this mascara great to use on your lower lashes, as well.

The formula of LashGASM is incredible! It has creamy formula, which is vitamin-rich and “penetrates for high-color absorbency and exaggerated length”. I absolutely love how deep, dark black this product makes my lashes! <3 The mascara is also really nourishing. According to Too Faced it is “a moisturizing combination of Panthenol, Vitamins A & E and Jojoba Seed Oil hydrates and soothes lashes to keep them soft, light and flexible”. LashGASM is designed to actually protect your lashes and “Meadow foam Seed Oil forms a protective barrier to lock in soothing emollients that promote long term wear without drying or harming lashes”. What I love about this product is that it gives such an amazing volume to my lashes! It separates them really nicely and makes them so natural and defined! Another good thing about LashGASM that it elongates my lashes beautifully and also doesn’t smudge or cake! Oh also, something very important for me is that it holds curl very well and my lashes always look lovely curled and clump-free. The mascara wears well but after the 7-8 hour mark I notice some minor flaking. I promise you it’s nothing major so don’t worry - you won’t look like panda at the end of the day! :)) The downside of LashGASM I’m afraid is that it doesn’t have waterproof version, which I know is essential for some people, especially during the summer! :(

Overall, I am absolutely loving LashGASM. Benefit They’re Real will always be my biggest love but this one definitely gets the second place! It is so easy to use and it makes my lashes so long, voluminous and black! It doesn’t smudge or clump and it holds curl perfectly! (: Eventually you may experience some little flaking but it’s definitely not a big deal! I get tons of comment on how beautiful my lashes look when I wear this mascara and a lot of people actually thought that I’m wearing false eyelashes haha! I highly recommend getting this! I know it’s on the pricey side but its nourishing properties are actually worth the money in my opinion! :)

Have you tried this mascara?  Do you like it? What is your favorite mascara?

Lots of love,

  7. This looks really nice! I personally really like the tiny mascara wands! I haven't given this mascara a try. I adore Stila Forever My Curl, mark. Scandalash and Maybelline's Falsies. The Stila forever my curl also has a really tiny wand, it is so good for bottom lashes, or I love to use it as a first coat to really help separate my lashes! I'm going to check this mascara out next time I'm in Sephora.
    Haven't gotten into Game of Thrones but everyone talks about it...I might have to give it a go!

  21. I haven't tried this one, but I'm a mascara junkie! I love trying new mascaras, I've tried almost all the drugstore ones. I've got to say my all time favorite is Voluminois Million Lashes by LOreal. (:

  23. It looks great on you! But yes I agree, Benefit They're Real is unbelievable and probably won't be replaced by anything else any time soon. I love Too Faced products though, they are always great quality.

  24. Your lashes look great! Too bad there's no waterproof formula though, as I am definitely one of those people who finds that essential.

  37. Your eyelashes are amazing! I have these tiny baby lashes, so having ones like yours are like a dream! The LashGasm mascara looks a treat, too! Might need to indulge in this once I've gone through some of my others! Mascara is one of my biggest beauty weaknesses! x
