IT Cosmetics Superhero™ Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara

Sephora Play July 2017

What it is
A game-changing mascara that gives lashes the appearance of volume, length, and elastic stretch in just one coat.

What it does
Developed with plastic surgeons, Superhero™ mascara is like skin care for your lashes. The proprietary Elastic Stretch Technology stretches the look of your lashes wider and longer, and wraps each individual lash in a volume-boosting, lengthening, ultra-conditioning coat of support and color for the strongest, thickest, most defined results. Powerful lash-lifting polymers, volumizing collagen, strengthening biotin, proteins, and peptides combined with super black pigment and the Lash-Changing Power Brush work together to coat every lash from base to tips. Lashes are lifted and separated to create a fuller lash line and to ensure that no lash is left behind. The super-buildable formula takes your lashes to new heights. Simply apply more coats for additional volume and length.

Sephora Play July 2017

Suggested Usage
-Starting at the base of your lashes, wiggle and sweep up and through to the tips.
-Apply additional coats for more dramatic results.

My Thoughts and Value

So Crystal loves this mascara, and I have had a sample before, and hated it.  I gave that one to her to use up.  Anyway, I have heard so many great things about this mascara – I wondered what was wrong with me since I hated it.  I decided to give it a try, and give it to Crystal if I didn’t like it (I know, I know, it is unsanitary to share eye products….I wouldn’t do it – but she doesn’t care and I don’t either :). Anyway, sorry Crystal, it seems I am keeping this one!

My Thoughts and Value

I’ll be honest, when I first read masque, I assumed face mask…I do have dry damaged hair, so I will give this a try.  I do however, have very fine hair, and not so sure how this will do with my hair type.   I am not familiar with this brand, so it is fun to try something different.  I do like that the product was sealed.

Final Thoughts and Value

I am probably most excited about the mascara, now that I tried it, I wasn’t when I first opened the box.  Skincare products are fun to try too, so the moisturizer and mask will be good, I will try the hair masque as well.

I am not sure how many different versions of the Sephora Play box, but I have seen very few reviews that got the same products as I got.  Some of the other items sent out were good too!

Total Box: $42.99 – that’s a great value, since I only spent $10!  Do you get Sephora Play? What did you get in your box?
