Origins: Full Story Mascara


I have another bargain from CCO for you today. After Origins were added to the stock in the shop that I go to I did go a little crazy as I’m sure you can imagine, but this was one of the cheapest items I bought.

This Origins Full Story mascara was on offer that day for £7.70 and conveniently placed at the till when I was paying for all my other items…that trick really does work!

This ‘Lush-Lash’ mascara is a wax free gel formula has a pH identical to your own tears so is suitable for sensitive eye people like myself including contact lens wearers, hurrah!

It contains kaolin to plump and thicken and special polymers to help lengthen eye lashes.

As with most Origins products the packaging is simple and the teal green colour is a welcome addition to my make up bag and I know of no other product with the same colour packaging making it easy to find.

The brush is pretty ordinary, nothing to big or scary looking and its a brush not a comb which some people have a particular preference for.

So what are the results like?

My lashes look longer and more defined without being clumpy. It’s starting to dry out now I’ve been using it continuously but it has been pretty good up until now.


As you can see its very natural looking and I’ve had absolutely no reaction to any of the ingredients in it, nor has it run down my face or any other mascara no no’s!

I’m not sure that I would repurchase this for the full price of £14 as it seems a little steep for a mascara that only provides me with natural looking lashes. I would normally prefer more volume and curl but as a basic mascara it has been great and trustworthy for every day especially work.

Have you tried any Origins make up? I hear their GinZing mascara is pretty good, any reviews on that?
