Last month I was having a little video marathon of one of my favorite YouTubers, LisettesBeaute. I don’t remember exactly which video of hers I was watching, but I think it was a makeup tutorial and she mentioned that the Jordana Best Lash Extreme was her favorite mascara of all time. While I was listening to her talk about the Jordana mascara, I got an email notification that Melissa from Pink Lady Beauty had a new post and it was her top 5 mascaras of all time. In that post, Melissa also talked about the Jordana mascara.
It got me thinking about that mascara and it just have been stuck in my head because I went to Walgreens later that day and found myself staring at the Jordana display. I have never bought a single Jordana product but at that moment I needed to know if this mascara really was as good as two inspirational ladies claim.
Keep reading for my full review and how it looks on my lashes!
The brush seems like a very traditional mascara brush, which sometimes I enjoy. Sometimes I get a little sick of seeing the new style mascara brushes with crazy torture balls curved like a slinky with 10 different styles of bristles. Sometimes keeping it simple works better. The formula is a pretty wet, so if you aren’t a fan of wet mascaras this might not be for you.
What I like: I love how black it is! For some reason I feel like this is one of the blackest mascaras I’ve tried in a long time. I also love how it seems to coat every single lash and make them stand out more. It does a nice job at giving me volume and a little bit of length. Another thing I love and you can’t really tell from the pictures but this mascara curls my lashes! This is a really nice curling mascara. The last thing I really love, but some of you may hate, but it makes my lashes stiff and hard. While mascaras that give you stiff and unmovable lashes can lead to flaking (which I haven’t experienced yet), it keeps the curl and keeps them looking like I just applied the mascara.
What I don’t like: I have experienced some clumping with this mascara. You can tell from the picture that there is slight clumping, but I have experienced some days where I’ve had to wash my entire face to get it off. Since it is a wet formula I have to wait a while in between coats to make sure that I don’t get clumping. So it takes a while to apply this mascara. But the pay off is really nice if you have the patience to apply it.
Overall, I really like this for the price and love how it looks! But I don’t love that I have to be careful applying it to make sure I don’t get clumps. I bet that this will be an amazing mascara once it dries out a little, but I’ve had it for almost a month and it is still really wet. I definitely would recommend this but just be careful that it does clump a little!
