I feel like it’s quite a feat to make mascara feel glamorous and fun to use. I’ve got a couple of firm favourites which I rotate through, and don’t think much of it until something new comes along. So, when Burberry’s brand new Cat Lashes arrived, I could hardly contain myself.
Like all of the brand’s beauty offerings, the packaging for the Cat Lashes mascara is the definition of chic. It’s a weighty tube, etched with Burberry’s signature check. I love how classic the packaging is, and it feels like a real treat to use each morning. It’s also a whole lot bigger than regular mascaras, so it’s easy to find in my makeup bag if I’m fumbling around in the morning!
The mascara wand is a curved plastic one, which grips every single lash, lengthening them and coating them in the super black formula. One coat of the Cat Lashes mascara gives me a perfect everyday look with length and definition, whilst an extra coat or two really amps up the volume. I usually finish at about three coats, as I just love how dramatic a look it gives. Lashes are super long, pumped up and incredibly black, it’s everything you could ask for! It even lasts like a dream – even when I’ve applied it first thing in the morning, it stays looking fresh all day, and I’ve never had even a hint of a smudge or a flake!
Burberry Cat Lashes is available in three shades (black, brown, and lighter brown) and is priced at £24 and is available here.
