Showdown: Surratt Pointilliste v. Elcie Lashfull
Surratt Pointilliste Mascara in Noir ($28) and Elcie Cosmetics Lashfull ($24) have been two mascaras I’ve found that are some of the darkest out on the market--and they’re both in a similar price range. I really enjoy that both of these are a rich, bold shade of deep black, but there are also a ton of differences among the two.
Let’s get to it, shall we?
Size: Surratt Pointilliste Mascara is much smaller in size than the Elcie Lashfull Mascara.
Applicator: Surratt Pointilliste Mascara has fine bristles that help get to the smallest of lashes, so can be extremely ideal for those with shorter lashes. Elcie Lashfull’s applicator has thicker bristles, but the bristles are closer together to one another, which makes a few lashes clump together when applying.
Feel on Application: Surratt Pointilliste Mascara glides on pretty easily, and allows you to go at each lash with precision, while Elcie Lashfull Mascara, being as it is of thick consistency, clumps a little. This can be good or bad depending on the type of lash effect you want.
Final results: Elcie Lashfull Mascara helps your lashes resemble false lashes because of how thick each strand looks after a few lashes clump together. The lashes look nice and curled, even without an eyelash curler, too. On the other hand, Surratt Pointilliste Mascara gives the lashes more of a straight effect, and while each individual lash is visible as opposed to a few being clumped into one, the lashes do not look as thick or voluminous as they would when using Elcie.
Which one are you-- straight and natural? Or curled and bold?
