Surrealist Everfresh Mascara from Helena Rubinstein is closed in a black phial of 3,7 ml capacity. The thing that makes the mascara stand out from the rest of similar cosmetics is the applicator – a brush wider at the bottom and thicker in its tip. If looked from the top, it reminds a star or a flower. What is the point in designing such a mysterious shape of an applicator? The producer claims, Surrealist Everfresh Mascara applicator has such a shape in order to greatly ease eyelashes coating. Does it really work this way? The answer is not precise. On one hand, thanks to the brush, the user is able to lengthen, curl and stretch the eyelashes to the top. Additionally, the pointy-ended tip of the applicator reaches even the tiniest eyelashes located in the inner and outer corners of the eyes. On the other hand, due to the irregular shape of the brush, it may happen quite often that we stain our eyelids with the mascara. What is more, sometimes, too much of the product tends to gather in the narrower part of the applicator. As a consequence, applying too much of the cosmetic results in achieving rather unaesthetic effect that we definitely do not want to wear on our eyelashes.
What are the other properties of Helena Rubinstein’s Surrealist Everfresh Mascara? For sure, thanks to widely-spread bristle, the brush thoroughly separates and brushes the eyelashes. Accordingly, eyes become optically bigger, and wide-open, the look gains expressiveness and the colour of eyelashes is way more intensive. When it comes to the consistency of the mascara, it is very light which is one of the greatest advantages of the product. For that reason, the product neither sticks eyelashes together nor leaves clumps. Quite favourable feature, the consistency of Surrealist Everfresh Mascara includes special substances that prevent the cosmetic from rapid dry-out. The truth is, the consistency of most mascaras become thicker after approximately two weeks since the first usage (due to oxygen entrance.) Nevertheless, this does not concern Surrealist Everfresh Mascara since the special Everfresh system makes the mascara glides freely on your eyelashes day after day. Obviously, when applied on eyelashes, the product dries out faster, which is why, you are able to coat your little eyelid hair with several layers of Helena Rubinstein’s product in order to emphasize the effect of curl.
What should be done, in a case of staining eyelids during Surrealist Everfresh Mascara application? Generally speaking, there exist several solutions. Basically, you can remove the stains with any make-up removing lotion. Nevertheless, in such a manner, you will remove also already applied eye shadows and a make-up primer. The better, so called, quick-fix would be to cover the stains left by the mascara with a cotton stick soaked with a make-up foundation.
