Elizabeth Arden Grand Entrance Mascara – The Brush

So the brush technology is all about a 3-in-1 attack. It has an ergonomic curved reservoir which precisely transfers the perfect amount of product onto lashes to deliver lots of volume but no clumps. It also has three rows of alternating wedge-shaped discs and conical bristles which work to grab every lash to extend and separate. The unique push-up tip lifts and curls.

Elizabeth Arden Grand Entrance Mascara – Key Ingredients

  • Lash Building Complex – vitamin fortified peptide complex that locks onto lashes like a magnet for volume and lift
  • Olive Esters – emollient-rich extract that coats and separates individual lashes, helping to condition, treat, and protect lashes for clump- and flake-free definition
  • Rice Bran Esters – vitamin B complex and essential fatty acid-rich extract that helps to condition lashes for an overall healthier and plumper appearance
  • Carnauba Esters – moisturizing extract that helps to support the appearance of longer lashes

So as this uses a rather high tech brush, I actually took the time to read application instructions before jumping.

3-Step Brush Application:

1. Cradle to volumise – Use the curved side of the brush “cradling” lashes. Start at the base and swipe in an upward motion 3 times to create volume

3. Push up to lengthen – Use the straight side of the brush to apply mascara in 3 to 4 strokes to separate and lengthen. Use the brush tip to push up and define lashes.

Elizabeth Arden Grand Entrance Mascara Before & After Photos

I have to confess, I was a little daunted by the amount of information there is about actually getting this stuff on to the lashes but it’s actually quite simple.

It’s a great mascara! I love the definition and curl it delivers and how black it looks. Plus, it feels super light on the lashes, which stay flexible and not at all crispy. Lovely!
