Review time! I actually have a few mascaras that I need to do reviews on, but this one right now is for Wet n Wild Mega Impact Mascara.
I purchased this, I think early May-ish; and being I'm nearly running on E with my other mascara, I've been reaching for this one more often.
Wet n Wild states that this mascara provides the longest, thickest lashes ever and it instantly lifts for drama. True or False now is the question. Is it true? Or is this mascara a dud?
Review time, a go go!
Make an IMPACT! This revolutionary mascara formula provides EXTREME volume and length with a silicon complex that provides elasticity and flexibility. Proven to enhance the natural lash up to 8X, this all-in-one formula is enriched with Kernel Oil to permeate and condition each lash to promote healthy, strong hairs while adding color and shine.

Packaging: Its official, my camera does not like orange. It tends to go a little wonky. Very vivid, HOT orange with black lettering. The tube itself is pretty standard, save for the fact that the tube that houses the product tapers off at the end. The cap that holds the brush has a design on it, not over the top, but nice design with the very top of it being slanted. It holds 0.27 fl. oz. of product.

Brush: Standard bristle brush. It tapers slightly, but has a blunt end. For me, it doesn't seem to be too large of a brush as some can be.
Formula: This one I'd have to say is a dry formula. Which I actually like, not overly dry dry, but it's dry. I think sometimes with a dry formula, you most likely won't have a lot of clumping when you begin to layer coats. This is just my opinion though, from what I've experience with this mascara. To the touch on the lashes, it doesn't feel crunchy, even with two coats on. My lashes still feel flexible (are lashes suppose to be flexible? :o).
Overall Verdict: I love this mascara! I love that even with one coat (a lot of wiggling about with the brush), you can get enough volume, but still have a natural look. Two coats and you begin the drama. I don't know about the instant lift though as I curled my lashes for the photos above, but even when I'm in a rush to get to work, I never noticed a lift to them. The mascara itself isn't heavy on the lashes so it can keep a curl to them. But what I love the most is that after two coats, no clumping, you can still build it up. While this is certainly a volumizing mascara, I didn't see any lengthening taking place. Definitely will repurchase this once I'm done.
Price: $3.99 (check your Walgreens as mine has it priced as $4.99 =\)
