Boots 17's new Photo Flawless range includes three tinted mascaras, promising a "show-stopping" lash effect. As part of my ongoing quest to fool the world that I have long, lush lashes, I'm reviewing the mascara in Black-Gold.
17 got some big blogger thumbs-ups for their Wild Curls mascara last year, and Photo Flawless deserves a similar verdict. It's a thick, slightly tacky formula that adds volume to lashes thanks to its dense consistency. I'm predicting that it will dry up relatively fast as a result, but at £5.99, a short lifespan is not the end of the world.
I didn't find the tinted thing especially obvious on the lashes, although it can be seen slightly on the brush. Any colour-play with the eyes is probably subliminal, but I'd like to think the bronzey tint offsets the green in my eyes slightly.
The brush is great - it's a curved, bristle-based effort with longer bristles on the outside of the curve. The mix of longer and shorter bristles make it easy to wiggle the thin side right into the roots and also comb through the ends with the longer bristles to pull out any clumps.
I'm very impressed with this mascara all in all, and will be picking up the other coloured variants too. It's available now from Boots, costing £5.99.
