I normally do not wear a full face of makeup daily. Most days I wear a BB cream, concealer, tinted lip balm, eyebrows filled in and nothing on the eyes. Now if I go out, that is a different story. Because I do not wear mascara daily, I do not buy it often. What I like to do is stock up on travel sizes. That way if I do go a long time without wearing mascara, I always have a fresh tube at my disposal. It didn’t matter what brand I used because my lashes were short, brittle and sparse. Mascara didn’t make much of a difference.
I finally got tired of not having long lashes so I started using castor oil and Latisse to improve the condition and help them grow. It has been a few weeks since I started but I am already seeing some progress. I couldn’t wait to see how my lashes looked with mascara.
I was getting ready to buy a mascara because I had finished all of my travel-sized mascara. Then I was giving an *opportunity to try Impactfull Pro T.L.S. by Studio Gear. Studio Gear is a brand that was one of the first indie brands. They are known to have cutting-edge professional products.
Now back to the mascara. Impactfull Pro T.L.S. by Studio Gear Mascara THICKENS, LENGTHENS, and SEPARATES. It comes in one shade, black. Here is my opinion on this mascara.
The mascara wand is long. I like working with a long wand. The brush is thick. I was pleasantly surprised with the formula. It is not too wet or dry. It is the perfect consistency for a mascara. I curled my lashes before I applied the mascara. I found that the mascara went on smoothly with not one clump in sight. I put one layer on the right eye and two layers on the left eye. The picture of me with my eyes closed was taken at the end of the day. You can clearly see the difference in length and thickness. I wore it from morning till evening. It stayed in place and kept my lashes curled.
- the mascara washed off easily with a normal cleanser
- It made my lashes look longer and thicker
- the mascara is easily buildable
- no flaking
- no irritation
- the black shade was suitable for daytime use

I am very impressed with this mascara. I love the long handle and makes it easier to apply. I didn’t need a lash comb. Now that I have lashes again, I am going to start wearing mascara again.
Studio Gear also sent their Invincible Gel Eye Liner and their #31 Invincible Multi-Tasker Brush.
I love the cat eye. It is my favorite look. Unfortunately, I am terrible at it. With this brush and eyeliner, I was able to get a cross between a cat eye and smokey look.
The formula wasn’t too dry or wet and applied easily. I did a heavy liner on my left eye and a thinner one on the right eye. The one thing I forgot to do was apply a shadow base. By the end of the day, The right eye had some fading. The left eye held up. For me, a shadow base is a must.
I love the brush. It is well made and sturdy. It felt soft but study. You can easily create a dramatic look with it. It was easy to wash.
