Welcome to another "first impressions" blog post Makeup Maniacs! This time I wore Physician's Formula's Sexy Booster Va Va Voom Mascara in Black for 24 hours! Well, almost 24 hours - I made it to 22 hours, LOL! You can check out my entire experience on video here.
First of all, this mascara is infused with a vanilla scent. So, it smells delicious. Some of its claims include: High-Performance, Voluptuous Volume, Luscious Length, Clump Free, and Smudge Free formula that lasts 24 hours. (Info gathered from Walgreens.com)
I went on to test its lasting power by attempting to wear it for 24 hours, which meant I had to sleep in it.
1. This is a very build-able mascara that is a dry formula.
2. It did not clump after I put 4 coats on my top lashes and 2 coats on the bottom.
3. This mascara did not help with length, as much as, it helped with volume. I thought it made my lashes look thicker, but not necessarily longer.
4. This mascara smudged. By hour 22 - shortly after waking up, it was quite apparent that my mascara had traveled all around my eyes while I slept.

On my 5 star scale, with 5 being the best and 1 being the worst, I give this product 3 stars! Mascara is not meant to be slept in, so although this mascara smudged after almost 24 hours, it was during sleep which may not be the best way to gauge its lasting power. But because after 12 hours my eyes became irritated and because it did smudge before the 24 hours were up, I took away 2 stars. Now, the formula is great for building volume without clumping and it dries fast. The smell is delicious too!
