Magnitude Mascara is exactly what its name suggests, a volumizing mascara that will amp up your lashes. The color, Almandine is one of the deepest, most natural brown shades I've ever used. See what you think. It reminds me of the most luxurious dark chocolate.
Look at the rich, cool-toned brown color! Almandine is definitely brown, but unless I'm delusional, I can see an ever-so-slight red hue in it - really hard to detect. There is a garnet called Almandine, which is a very deep red - sometimes indistinguishable from brown (photo immediately below). Almandine garnets could be the source of the name. So could almonds.
Almandine doesn't look brown on my lashes. It looks like a soft black - definitely not a harsh black. When I examine it outdoors, it looks natural, but I can see that it's there. My lashes are enhanced with length and volume.
Almandine Magnitude Mascara does not appear to be waterproof, which suits me just fine. I might term it water-resistant. I don't need waterproof mascara for most occasions, and I don't need the extra work to remove it. Yes, waterproof mascaras are perfect for certain days, times, and people. Day to day, though, I don't need and prefer not to use waterproof mascara.
I wrote to Rouge Bunny Rouge for the price and product details. When I get the information, I will share it with you. I searched the Rouge Bunny Rouge, Zuneta, and Beautyhabit sites - all Rouge Bunny Rouge retailers - and I couldn't find Magnitude Mascara available yet. I know it's coming soon.
