Josie Maran GOGO Instant Natural Volume Argan Mascara Review

Recently I picked up a trial size of the Josie Maran GOGO Instant Natural Volume Argan Mascara in a kit that I purchased. I was curious about this mascara because of its nourishing argan oil and its claims for volume.

Wearing Josie Maran GOGO Instant Natural Volume Argan Mascara

Does it live up to its claims?
Well, it falls flat as a volumizing mascara for me, but it does live up to its other claims. My results with it were practically non-existent. While it has a nice formula that doesn’t clump, it gives very NATURAL looking lashes. The color is great though! It’s a very dark black, which I love. As you can see from the image above, my lashes are barely visible over my eyeliner with this mascara. It doesn’t really thicken my lashes.

Would I purchase again?
No. While I wouldn’t purchase this again, it’s because I want my mascara to give me ridiculously fat lashes. I think if you like a more natural lash formula that does not clump, this is a winner. It’s just not my cup o’ tea. Additionally I like their ‘Get One, Give One’ policy.

Have you tried this mascara? Did you like the results?

Product purchased by me. All opinions are my own.
