REVIEW: stila Forever Your Curl Mascara

June's Topbox came loaded with lovely makeup samples, and I was quite happy to see stila's Forever Your Curl mascara in my topbox! The full-sized tube of Forever Your Curl retails for $29.00. It has a styling resin that is supposed to hold the curl of your lashes, enhancing the look throughout the day. 


The first thing I noticed when I opened the tube to apply this mascara is the smell- it has a chemically scent that I haven't noticed in any other mascaras I've been using lately. Perhaps that has something to do with the 'curling resin' that is used in the formula?
I love how jet black this mascara is. It applied very smoothly with little clumping on my lashes. I quite liked the way it looked on- it wasn't overly dramatic, and perfect for every day wear. It gave length, but not much in terms of volume. However, as the day went on I noticed it was smudging, leaving dark residue around my eye area. I usually use Benefits Bad Gal lash, which I never have any problems with in terms of smudging so that was a little disappointing. I would not say I noticed any special curling effects, either.

Here I am wearing the stila Forever Your Curl! As you can see, it looks very natural on the eye- nothing overly dramatic. I usually prefer mascaras that give an extra oomph of volume, so I would not purchase the full-sized of this mascara. However, I will continue to enjoy my sample size!

  1. Forever Your Curl really accentuates the beauty of natural lashes by shaping them in a way to make them look natural without being too dressy.

    I found your blog in our blog hop and followed you via GFC. :)

  2. I haven't tried that mascara. My fave mascara right now is Lights Camera Lashes by Tarte but i've been using Mally's Volumizing Mascara and really loving it at the moment. I might say almost better than Tarte's... maybe. haha

  6. It's quite strange that it smells chemically. It does look nice on the lashes it really seems to help shape them up.

    1. yes it gives a very natural look which would work well for every day wear, although I prefer a little more dramatic lash for myself !

  8. It looks really nice on you but that sucks about the smudging... I use L'Oreal Carbon Black Voluminous and the one Clinique makes for bottom lashes. I find it really weird that the mascara has a smell to it.. I've tried many and have never had that problem.

  10. Oh, that's too bad that it wasn't quite as amazing as it claimed to be! I got so distracted by your pretty eyelashes that I think I zoned out for maybe like 5 seconds and then resumed reading! LOL!

  11. Good to know it isn't worth the money.. would hate to waste $29.00 on a mascara just to have it come up short! I am really liking the Marcelle mascara we received in our Glossybox actually!
