I know I did a mascara review recently but I received this one in my You Beauty Discover box earlier this month and have really been impressed by the Desert Metals Mascara, so wanted to share.
I had never heard of the brand teeez Trend Cosmetics before so wasn’t sure what to expect. The Dutch company promise that this mascara which contains silk proteins which will protect and nourish your lashes. To be honest I am not sure about these claims- what do you look for to know if it has now more nourished eyelash? Despite this I have been impressed.
The brush is a cone like shape, small at the tip getting progressively wider. The narrow tip makes it great for easily coating the outer most or inner most lashes. It is an intense black which I felt made my lashes appear longer and fuller. It didn’t create that ‘false lash’ effect but it is perfect for what I want from mascara. It did not smudge, lasted all day and was relatively easy to get off at the end of the day.
You can get this in various colours- I have Midnight Sky which is a strong black.
One sad point is that it is pretty expensive at around £17 and I found it hard to track down a UK stockist but you can get it at nelly.com. Hopefully, the brand will be stocked more widely in the future though as I really liked this product.
Has anyone tried anything else from this brand?

BADgal Lash by Benefit is my current favourite mascara and has been for a while. I have tried other things in between purchases but I have always come back to it. Basically, it just makes my lashes look great. It has a a lovely big brush which applies with no clumps and little fuss, which is what I need to ensure I make it out the door on time. It separates my lashes nicely while adding volume and length with a beautiful jet black. It works well for work while an extra coat makes it perfect for evening/party time.
I wear glasses and feel it works well with them, false lash effect type mascaras are a bit much I find and make my lashes touch the lens. BADgal Lash is just the write combo of full lashes that are glasses friendly.
Other reviews I have read of this product have found that it flakes/smudges easily but this hasn’t been my experience, it has always lasted the day. It is also quite easy to take off with make-up remover which is wonderful after a late night.
Sadly, the one downside of this mascara is the price, it is expensive at £17.50 a pop. I would recommend keeping an eye on the House of Fraser brand sale, as Benefit is often included and I saved a few £ on my last purchase thanks to this.
