• Elizabeth Arden's Ceramide Lash Extending Treatment Mascara

    It recently occurred to me that I've mentioned a few times that my favourite mascara is Elizabeth Arden's Ceramide Lash Extending Treatment Mascara but I've never actually done a proper review for my blog - which is rather bad on my part.  So here are the reasons why I love to use this mascara over all others I have tried.

    1. I love the packaging - there is nothing like opening a mascara in a box and sliding out a metal tube.  It feels luxurious and becomes a treat to use.  When I use my usual mascaras in their plastic tubes and then come back to this one I always feel glamorous.
    2. The brush - there is nothing fancy or over the top about this brush.  In many ways it's just a normal bristle brush but it works like a charm because the formulation of the mascara is so amazing.
    3. The formula - the mascara is a very smooth liquid that applies easily to the lashes and I've never experienced any serious lumping at all, even when the mascara starts to dry out a bit at the end of its life.
    4. It works - My lashes always look incredibly long when using this mascara and the results are the same each and every time I use it.
    5. It's a treatment - the mascara contains Ceramide triple complex, vitamins A, C and E and Keravis.  All these ingredients help to condition, strengthen, protect and restore lashes.  Over time I did notice a huge improvement in the condition of my lashes.
    6. It's light wearing - the formulation of the mascara is incredibly light wearing, to the point that when you touch your lashes you'd swear you don't have anything on them. 
    7. Easily built up - This mascara is great for day time or night time because it can be built up easily with no smudging or clumping with each layer.
    8. It's not terribly expensive - At around R180 it's only a little more than other mascaras.  To many people this might seem steep for a mascara but considering that this is only about R50 more than many top end supermarket mascaras, this is not bad at all - especially because it's a treatment mascara. (You can buy this from the Rubybox boutique store)

    4. I just started using this about 2-3 months ago. I think Arden products are generally under rated! This mascara is such a rich, glossy black and it doesn't fade at all throughout the day (like so many other mascaras that I've tried). I can put one coat for a simple, look or layers for more drama. Either way, it gives my lashes such a polished look. I'm glad you appreciate this mascara, too!!
