I’m a big fan of Physician’s Formula Organic Wear range, especially, its mascaras. Most of them perform very well for my lashes and leave me satisfied with the results. The newest addition to my mascara family is this Physician’s Formula Work It! Full! Flared! Fit! mascara from its Spring / Summer 2016 collection.
WORK IT! FULL! FLARED! FIT! MASCARA in Ultra Black 7.5ml / $9.95 – approx £7
Usually, my first impressions about a product are about its packaging or its scent, or the ingredients it contains. But this time, the very first thought that comes to my mind is what a strange way to name a mascara. To be honest, I think the title is too excessive and since I can never remember it properly, I refer to it as “that pink and yellow mascara”. That pink and yellow is what the bright ombre packaging looks like, which is actually fun and pretty.
The mascara is described as a “revolutionary do-it-all mascara guaranteed to last through your toughest workout leaving your lashes looking full, long, flared, and dramatic”. I wouldn’t call it revolutionary, but for a long-lasting mascara, it’s pretty great. It’s water-resistant and does a great job at giving volume, separation, and definition to the lashes. The mascara has a recyclable, flexible, and easy-to-use wand with short, sparse bristles. The formula of the mascara is quick drying and it doesn’t stain my eyelids, even with this wide wand. I also like that it stays in place all day without smudging.
The main downside with this mascara was that it dried out pretty fast (after about two weeks of daily use) and started clumping and giving me spider lashes instead of separating them nicely. This has never happened with any other Organic Wear mascaras, so I’m not sure if I have received a faulty one or it’s just the way it is.
