Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Mascara Review

Count the Muse bored when she seen the new Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Mascara which was launched with the Bobbi Brown Nautical Collection. Ho-hum not a whole lot of special going on here kids.

With a promise of making the most of every lash this mascara is supposed to separate, curl, and give lashes perfect definition plus it's safe for contact lens wearers too! Supposedly the unique multi-comb brush is the key to the amazing results....yes well that's one of the reasons the Muse was bored. That brush looked terribly boring! What was so special about this mascara?

Probably nothing.

This is a perfect reason why you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover. Although Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Mascara looks very unappealing it actually does exactly what it promises and than some. Quite a nice mascara and a tad surprising for this Muse.

I'm one for looking for mascaras with elaborate brushes. I shop mascara brushes as I would a brand new car. It has to have tons of bells and whistles. Nothing normal or standard will do, hey kids this isn't 1950 where one brush reigns supreme. We have so many options now a days why settle for a brush with a straight line and simple bristles when you can have curved, plastic, or straight!

But leave it to Bobbi to prove a Muse wrong.

Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Mascara does an incredible job of grasping all lashes, pulling up and out, defining, curling, and offering nice plump results with plenty of length. The formula stays on all day and keeps curl twice as long plus at the end of a long day it simply washes away with a little warm water! Loves it! Although the brush looks standard but looks indeed can be deceiving as it does an amazing job of keeping lashes looking lovely all day long.

At $22 USD it's decently priced for a counter mascara that delivers. Well worth checking out, it has the potential to become a fast favorite with this Muse. Likey!

Final results:

Tried it?

Loving it?

Wanting to try it?

Tell the Muse!

Wow! The effect is nice and natural, but still defined.. It's exactly what I've been searching for! I have my mascara for night outs and special occasions, I have my mascara for running errands and slobbing out.. I just needed one for work! This seems perfect. Yes I have an addiction. I love your blog btw Muse, I've never commented but I felt an urge. Do you know if this is out in the UK yet?

looking very nice! but are your original eyelashes long already muse? I dont like wearing mascara because I have a rather odd eyelashes, it's getting fewer on the inner sides and when I use mascara it looks like I have none at all on those areas T-T maybe it's a wrong technique or maybe I need the help of fake eyelashes (which I dont really like putting on)

Hey Muse,you've gotta check on famous Yves Saint Laurent Faux Cils mascara,if you stil haven't!
This is a must try for each make up addict.
Like Dior foundations or Chanel Glossimers.
Try it,it's the most dramatic and luxury mascara one can find on the market.
I'm pretty curious whether you might fall in love with it.
