When they’re real mascara first launch or it was still pretty new then, I was in HK. I did not want to spend so much money in other currency, so I did not buy them. Anyway, it was quite pricey, when my fav Anna Sui mascara then was only half the price. But I was still intrigue that a mascara can promise fake lashes look.
A few years later, I got the mini mascara. I am not sure how I feel about it. I love the wand. I love the tip of the wand. It makes getting into the corner of the eyes easily. At the same time, the wand is kind of big. And I wish it were smaller.
When I first use it, I don’t like the formula. I don’t like the formula for a long time. When it finally becomes more dry, it finally works for me. As you can see I do have to curl my lashes for it to actually be nicely done. It doesn’t curl for you.
I find that it doesn’t hold the curl very well. It is also very crisp and I don’t like that. I have to be careful not to touch my eyes or my lashes will stick together.
I can’t apply it to the lower lashes, not that I have any, as it will smudge. For top lashes, I will have to stay still for a while for the mascara to be fully dry.
My lashes doesn’t look like I’ve put on fake lashes. It just look normal. If I layer it on, it will clump on me. So I tried to love it, in a way I do like it, but it just wasn’t the one for me. It also can be hard to remove. Not my fav mascara but also not the worse. Wouldn’t purchase it on my own, but if it’s free, I wouldn’t mind.
