Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes

July 29, 2008 Reviewed by Marta 0 Comments
I saw a picture of a fascinating new mascara applicator while shopping online a couple of weeks ago. It was round, like a sphere. In fact, if you can, imagine a hedgehog all rolled up in a ball. I ordered it immediately ($27), I absolutely loved the funky new gig. It is made by Givenchy, they named it "Phenomen'Eyes."

PhenomenNot is what I sadly call it after testing it.  I used it and the mascara left huge blobs on my eyelashes.  I was soooo disappointed. I even took the experiment one step further. I tried the sphere applicator with my regular applicator, it too turned into blobs. I then put a regular applicator in the Givenchy mascara. It went on very smoothly and lengthened my lashes.

It's a great mascara with a not so great applicator.  I hope the designers keep improving upon their idea, it could have potential.
