I love this mascara.
I don't buy it often, because $24 a pop is a bit steep for my mascara, but I do adore it. The formula is wonderful--it doesn't give me raccoon eyes, and it doesn't flake into my contact lenses. It lengthens, it curls, it gives volume. I wish I had more expendable income.
I'm really fussy in regards to my mascaras so I have yet to find the perfect mascara. The wand is a strange shape (although they have a reason for the spoon shape) to try and give you an all-day curl. The formula is a little dry and I wouldn't say it's the blackest mascara out there.
always on hand
this is my fav and really only mascara i use. I first bought this because it was from Japan and make by Japanese makeup artist, but when i used it i saw dramic difference in my lashes. The best thing that i find is that it also conditions your lashes as well as curling and lengthens. At only $24 its not a bad buy!
I always have one in my bag, bathroom, and bedroom so i can always grab and go.
Love the formula, loathe the applicator...
I have been wearing mascera for 30+ years and I have never had so much crap from an applicator. I have beaten it. The mascera itself is one of the best I have used. I decided not to repurchase this and picked up Bene's They're Real...Not happy with it, but am in love with the wand. I am going back to Fairy Drops and am starting a collection of better wands. The formula does exactly as advertised. Curls. Resitant to water, sweat and actually works as a sealer on top of other masceras that aren't, is conditioning (meaning- doesn't dry out my lashes) and comes off easily with soaps and water. I was really impressed by that, I just wipe away with a washcloth after sudsing and it leaves nothing behind. The color is more patent-black than black so there is some gloss to it. I get more compliments using L'Oreal Voluminous, but smuge city, I put Fairy Drops on top and it becomes sweat/water resistant too. I don't think I can live without this mascera...
I'm really enjoying this mascara because it curls my lashes and keeps them curled all day long. This mascara is also water/sweat resistant which I found to be true. I went swimming without taking my mascara off, and this mascara didn't drip down. The only way it came off is if I rubbed my eyes, and even then it would flake off so it didn't create raccoon eyes. Despite being water resistant, this isn't difficult to take off at night and I don't find myself rubbing my eyes trying to wash the product off.
It doesn't make my lashes look as thick as I normally like them to appear, but this mascara really opens up the eyes because of the curl it creates.
surprised me- its perfect!
i dont even need to curl my lashes when i use this mascara!
i didn't realize when i ordered it from sephora that it had fibers in it, which i love. (i had considered buying a separate mascara with fibers, but i guess i don't need to.)
it stays on all day, even through naps.
the packaging is absolutely adorable too, and i love the pattern on the tube. the brush is the same as vivian l. posted below, but my tube is silver/gold-ish
Fab mascara for sparse lashes
The mascara I'm reviewing is by Fairydrops, but looks kinda different from the picture above. Anyway, I love this mascara because it's perfect for Asian lashes.
It separates each lash, coats it evenly and holds the curl well. It probably has something to do with the bubble-shaped brush, but I find that it also helps define the curl of your lashes. No clumps either.
It doesn't flake nor smudge, which is a big plus point in every girl's book.
Highly-recommended, especially for those with short/sparse/thin lashes. This really helps make a difference.
