Helena Rubinstein isn't a brand much talked about on the beauty blogs and youtube channels, but it is a fantastic brand none-the-less and one started by a rather inspirational lady. The line has some fantastic skin care offerings plus a very nice selection of gorgeous makeup. It's a high-quality brand across the board and it always strikes me as odd that I never hear anyone talking about any of the products. I guess I'll be taking the lead!
The Rubinstein mascaras are famous for their top quality and are one of the brands best sellers, to my knowledge at least. They have many different mascaras, the one I will be talking about today is the Lash Queen Sexy Blacks in 01 Scandalous Black.
Lash Queen Sexy Blacks promises "everything" - length, volume and curl. The formula is thicker, but not at all clumpy. Drier, but not at all wet. It's at that perfect place, in my opinion, that a mascara usually is two weeks after opening it. I've been using it for almost 3 months now, and it is still almost exactly the same. It has only dried out a tiny bit, but application is the same - foolproof.
The wand is an oval hourglass shape. This helps with separating the lashes. I have never experienced any clumping or lashes sticking together with this mascara, but I imagine if I did this wand would work well at separating them with the famous "wiggling motion".
This mascara simply make my lashes look amazing. It delivers on every promise made. I get longer, much fuller, super black and curved lashes. It lasts all day long, no smudging or flaking. It's also very buildable, without the product starting to thicken and giving the "spider lashes effect", so it would be perfect for touching up if going out straight after work/school. If you're looking for a new mascara to try - I highly, highly recommend this! If I wasn't such a beauty nerd wanting to try it all I would re-purchase in a heartbeat!
