I'm a girl who loves beauty products, even though I haven't always been very keen on them, so I decided to start a beauty blog, where I share beauty product reviews with others and tell you about both the worst and best beauty products out there, according to me.

I'm also hoping it will make beauty and makeup more fun, even for those who are not beauty addicts already.

Review: Pupa Ultraflex mascara

As some of you reading this may already know, I am a bit of a mascara snob. I think most mascaras out there suck, so I try not to switch mascaras very often, since I usually get very disappointed when I do. However, my favorite brand of mascaras, Lancome, is not sold everywhere where I live, and when it is, it is often quite expensive, so sometimes I have no choice but to try something new. That happened quite recently, I ran out of my Lancome mascara and had no choice but to buy a new mascara at the local drug store. I saw that they had a pretty good deal on Pupa's Ultraflex mascara, so since I had pretty good experiences with Pupa products in the past (read this, for instance) I decided to give the Pupa Ultraflex mascara a try.
And I actually really liked it! This mascara does seem to elongate my lashes, and while it does not make my lashes thicker too (I tend to go for mascaras that both make my lashes thicker and longer normally), the effect of longer lashes is really pretty. You do need to use several layers in order to get your lashes to look really long and nice, though, so I would not exactly recommend this mascara for those who don't like applying several layers of mascara, because at least 3 or 4 layers are needed, I think. I don't mind applying several layers, though, so this is not really a serious con for me.
The mascara also does not smudge of flake, which is great, since smudging and flaking is definitely one of my biggest pet peeves with mascaras in general. I also think it is worth mentioning that while some, and even Pupa themselves, I believe, claim that this mascara curls your lashes, and I do not really think that's true. If you need your eyelashes curled, you need to curl them with a curler, and not rely on this mascara. Not a big deal for me, but could be a deal breaker for others...

I will definitely get this mascara again, especially if I can find it for a good price like this time. I did really like it, and if you look at this as a budget mascara, it is really one of the better mascaras in its price range that I've ever tried!
