Let me start this off the right way. I absolutely LOVE Kat Von D Beauty. It’s my favorite brand for personal use, and I use a lot of the products in my pro kit. I love the style, the formulas, and some of the products are in my top 10 beauty products ever guide, which I am currently working on.
Kat Von D Beauty came out with the newest product in the line last weekend, and it’s the second mascara that she has released. The original stopped production years ago, and she finally came out with this bold beauty called Go Big or Go Home. It’s vegan, cruelty free, and it has claim to lengthen, volumize, and curl lashes with just one coat. It’s said to be waterproof, flake free, and it’s buildable as heck. Below is a Before and After shot!
I bought the mascara, and I will say it’s black, builds, volumizes, and lengthens. You can definitely see an incredible difference between eyes after applying a couple coats. I’ve seen a lot of pictures, a lot of videos of applications from other people, and it definitely applies really well. I really hate to say this, but I am not happy with this product in the slightest bit.
It’s not waterproof. I teared up even just slightly, and I had mascara running down my face while wearing it. It flaked. It got in my eyes even, and it was an extremely difficult mascara to clean off of my face and eyelashes. I use the Boscia Makeup Breakup Cleansing Oil, which has never once failed me in getting all of my makeup wiped away. But, this mascara got messy and not in a good way.
I hate writing this because I feel like I am breaking up with my favorite brand in a way. The foundation hasn’t been wearing the same on my face. I’m not a big fan of the palettes that have come out recently, and now this catastrophe of a mascara. Don’t get me wrong. Tattoo Liner is still my number one eyeliner. The liquid lipsticks are still my all-time favorites. I’ll still be one of the first to buy any new products to try and hopefully find new makeup loves. I just find myself using a lot less of Kat Von D Beauty in recent days, and it’s definitely a little sad for me.
I’ll stick with Too Faced Better Than Sex for mascara, though. I haven’t had any issues with that one, and it really just does more for my lashes than Go Big or Go Home did. Have you tried the new mascara that is causing quite the stir over social media? Am I the only one who doesn’t like it? Let me know in the comments below!
