NYX Le Chick Flick Waterproof Mascara

NYX Le Chick Flick Mascara

I love mascara.  I love waterproof mascara.  I love a full mascara wand.  I love NYX Le Chick Flick!  Available at Ulta and NYX online, this $5.99 cruelty-free mascara isn’t messing around.  The wand is perfect and the mildly wet formula holds a curl while leaving my lashes soft and flexible.

Offering length and a moderate amount of volume, Le Chick Flick does a great job at emphasizing my lashes for a flirty appearance.  While this mascara doesn’t give a large amount of drama, it can be built up to three coats for fuller lashes.

The only problem I have with the formula is that it is so difficult to remove!  I need to soak a cotton round in a super effective eye makeup remover, then hold it over my eye for a full minute.  After removing the majority of the mascara, I continue with a cleansing oil over my entire face (including eyes) for another thirty seconds before Le Chick Flick is completely gone.  While this seems like a lot of work, it’s only an additional thirty seconds added to my typical makeup removing routine.  And at a mere fraction of the cost of my favorite volumizing mascara, it’s worth the extra time!  Now I only wish NYX was available at more stores as my local Ulta rarely keeps anything in stock.

Have you tried any mascaras by NYX?  I’d love to hear about the other formulas!


Price: $5.99

Availability: Ulta

Summary: NYX Le Chick Flick Waterproof Mascara offers a natural looking appearance to lashes with added length.  It is a budget-friendly brand with a true waterproof formula.  However, it is very difficult to remove.

    I use mascaras like this as a primer — it’s hard to layer a super voluminous mascara, but over a subtle mascara like this one, they’re amazing! this brush reminds me of clinique’s high impact, one of my favourite formulas/brushes!

    I like the looks of this one!
    I like the idea of waterproof mascaras, but I HATE taking them off. I usually lose a few lashes in the process!

      Yikes! I don’t normally lose lashes, my EMR breaks down everything. Or so I thought. This one is just tough! But I have a new EMR specifically for waterproof eye makeup that I’m going to try tonight, so I’ll have to let you know how it goes.
