Shu Uemura Ultimate Natural Mascara review
When I was searching fruitlessly for the Basic Mascara, I was helped by a makeup artist in the Shu Uemura boutique who asked what I wanted in a mascara. My answer was 'Something to make my lashes darker but not clumpy.' 'Waterproof?' said he, 'No,' said I, 'I really don't like waterproof mascara.'
You know where this is going. The new Shu Uemura Ultimate Natural Mascara formulation is waterproof, as I found out when I tried to remove this the first time and lost half my lashes in the battle. The makeup artist didn't tell me it wasn't waterproof, but he didn't tell me it was either, after I'd specifically said I don't like waterproof mascaras.
Other than the waterproof thing, it's a nice mascara. It's a good sooty black, it doesn't clump and gives long, feathery lashes. The brush is narrow and neat, and very much my preferred brush size and shape.
