NYC Cosmetics High Definition Volumizing Mascara Review

This week at Rite Aid, NYC Cosmetics are 40% off, so I used that as a great excuse for a mini haul.  I got 3 eyeliners (.59 cents each!) and this High Definition mascara for around $2.79- how can you beat that?! 

 
Here's what the NYC website says about it:
 
 

BENEFITS

Volume Mania Technology thickens lashes up to 10 times for 360° wide open-eye look
Exclusive multi-functioning plastic brush for SEPARATION and VOLUME
Short-bristle side multiplies lashes out for dramatic volume
Long-bristle side to separate & define even tiny lashes
Spectacular lash make over with lashes visibly up to 70% longer
Duo Play Complex with Panthenol and vitamin E strengthens and adds suppleness
Ophthalmologist tested
Suitable for sensitive eyes and lens wearers

 

Here's a close up of the brush.  It's a plastic bristle brush with tiny spikes that are supposed to really separate and define the lashes, which I think it does really well.  It's not a wide brush at all, which makes it easy to get right up into the lash line, and get every single lash.
 
So here's my lashes before using High Definition mascara: 
 
After: 
 
 
I was pretty impressed by this mascara, and felt that it was well worth the $2.79.  I used several coats and it really added length and lift, but not too much volume, so I was disappointed with that aspect of it.  It didn't smudge under my eyes at all, or flake off, which was a good thing! 
Overall, I think this is a good mascara for the price, especially if you're looking for length, but not so much for volume.  
 
Stay tuned for part 2 of my Rite Aid NYC Cosmetics haul- tomorrow I'll show you the eyeliners I got for .59 cents each!
