Rare Beauty Perfect Strokes Universal Volumizing Mascara Mini Review

I’m planning an entire post about mascara (stay with us) because I’ve tried it a few times and it gives my lashes such a beautiful, fluttery look. It is designed for lifting, length, volume and twisting.

I can’t wait to share photos before and after with you.

I haven’t tried this yet, but it has a nice texture. I usually don’t really like the formula for fogging primers because they can feel heavy on the skin.

This looks easy, so I’ll give it a try and let you know if I like it.

Now I have tried this and my first impressions are really good. It has a really nice list of ingredients with niacinamide, sodium hyaluronate and panthenol.

It gives the skin a beautiful moisturizing look and also looks hydrating. I’ll try again and let you know.
