Hi everyone, today I’m going to review one of my currently favorite black mascara from brand MUA. MUA Make Up Academy is a UK makeup brand, known for its affordable & high quality products. MUA make-up products are easily available at many online stores in India. I bought this MUA Lash Boom mascara online from Jabong.com. It comes in three shades – Black, Black/Brown and Ultra Black. I picked-up this mascara in Black color. I’ve already used this mascara few times and now I decided to share my views about this amazing product.
Packaging : It comes in a sturdy purple tube and MUA Lash Boom is written with silver letters. There is a little sticker on the cap that shows what the brush looks like. It is provided with a long enough wand with big ball on the end. The packaging is pretty much the same as the Maybelline Volume Express mascara.
My Experience : It has a thick creamy texture that glides smoothly and coats the lashes evenly. It is light weight and has a mild fragrance that is not overpowering. The applicator brush has plastic bristles that are soft and flexible. The shape of the wand is ideal to get natural looking lashes, the rounded end of the wand helps to pick up even shorter lashes in the inner & outer corners. First time when I used this mascara I was amazed by its results as it makes huge improvement to my lashes.
I’m not blessed with fuller lashes and I always hoard mascaras that promise to provide fuller looking lashes. This is my third mascara, I’ve already reviewed L’oreal Double Extension Mascara Extra Black (Click here to view full review of L’oreal Double Extension Mascara), which was my most favorite one before using this mascara. This mascara adds length and lifts my lashes and doesn’t clump even after 2-3 coats. Normally I use curler before applying mascara but it works great even without using curler. It dries out quickly and two coats are more than enough to get fuller natural looking lashes. It stays for more than 5 hours without flaking and smudging. It is not waterproof so it might smudge under your eyes due to sweating.
The only issue that I found with mascara is, sometimes too much product comes out onto the brush, which leads to messy application and clumpy lashes. I wish the valve at the top of the bottle could be better, as it tends to leave drops of mascara sitting on the bristles and you need to swirl the brush in the neck to get rid of that. Other then that I didn’t find any con of this mascara. Right now I’m just in love with this mascara. This is an ideal mascara for day as well as night look.
