Le Metier de Beaute Jade Anamorphic Lash Mascara

I have very little patience for purple prose or ridiculous promises. A mascara that comes with declarations about "three-dimensional lashes" (because otherwise lashes don't have three dimensions?) and "Conditions as it thickens for a soft, touchable look" (I dare you to try and touch my lashes) doesn't get the best starting point with me.

I was fully prepared to unleash some snark, but Le Metier de Beaute Anamorphic Lash Mascara is actually quite fabulous.

The brush is not too big and not too thin, resulting in a perfect, even coat. The color goes on smoothly, gives the proper amount of thickness and length without going overboard. I get beautifully defined lashes that don't cross any lines into scary territory. The Anamorphic mascara holds the curl for hours, and after nearly a month of use I have yet to see clumping, flaking, cooning or smudging. Removal with all the usual suspects is easy and painless.

Le Metier de Beaute products are normally very pigmented (reviews coming soon). In this case, the one I have is Jade, supposedly a very dark hunter green, but for the life of me I can't detect any green. It's a not-quite-black or an almost brown on my lashes, which is fine with me, as long as the result is so pretty and the mascara is a high performer as this one.

Le Metier de Beaute Anamorphic Lash Mascara ($36) is available from Bergdorf Goodman online and in store. Mine was part of a Bergdorf goodie bag.
