Volume Million Lashes

A rubber wand that quite big actually. The thing I don’t like about this is that it smudges. I feel that cause the wand is sort of bug, it just smudged on me. I can’t really control the application. 

Does it gives volume? Yes. But the more I use the more it clumps. So this is not a good mascara for me. I think it’s nice on anyone with thick lashes. If not it just feel like it gives clumpy lashes. 

Cyber Colors Ex Volume Waterproof Mascara

This is a very nice mascara. It’s from Sasa for $25.90. Not exactly cheap, but it’s made in Japan. It’s a plastic wand with different size bristles. One side is short ones for volumising. The other side is longer and more sparse. This is to comb the lashes. It’s suppose to help with the curl. I find that it won’t really curl your lashes unless your lashes are already quite curl. Like as long as it’s not so straight and stubborn, it will kinda curl a bit. 

I like this cause it’s waterproof. And it doesn’t make my lashes too crazy. It just coats them nicely. So in term of volumising, I don’t think this does that. It’s just a nice daily natural mascara. It gives a darker lashes, as obviously it’s black and will cost them. 

The thing I don’t like is that when I apply this, it will smudge under my eyes. I think it’s the brush. Even though it’s not so big, but will touch my under eye. 

So overall, for the price, I think there are better mascara out there. But if this is cheaper, it’s a good daily mascara. 

False Lash Wings Butterfly Effect Fibers Mascara

I quite like the wand on this. The effect is surprisingly flattering. People comment that it will be hard to apply on both side, but I have no problem. You just have to adjust the wand accordingly. This is a very wet mascara. So much so that it smudges on me. After a couple months, this is still wet. I really feel that this will last forever. This is super black, and it will really show. Slightly under dramatic, but it will be quite flashy. It’s lengthening and darken the lashes. At first this doesn’t clump. But the more I use the more it starts to. I guess the mascara sort of get dryer. But not really also. Hard to really explain.

It’s just extra good for those who already have long lashes and want the extra length. In term volume, it gives some. But not as full. Curling power is alright, but average to me. Overall not that bad. I just wish that it’s waterproof. I mean it’s not as bad as it only smudge on application. End of day, it’s alright doesn’t smudge. I guess it just set well. 

Lights, Camera, Flashes

I don’t really get the 2 steps process of this mascara. I don’t see much different between the wand. I guess one side is more sense than the other. But the packaging have the “1” and “2” written on it. Anyway, the first impression of this is not good. It’s quite wet, gives me clump lashes and smudges badly. Then after that, the formula is less wet. It is not dry, but I feel it’s quite good. 

My lashes are too short to be able to really use both sides of the wand. So I don’t see how it really help me to volumise my lash. Cause by reading online, it teaches you to first apply the short bristles side for volume. Then turn it 180 degree to comb through the lashes with the longer firmer side. You are suppose to tap the wand on the top of the tube to feel the difference between the bristles. 

What I can say is that this mascara is nice for daily. It is not so dramatic, but it coats the lashes well. And the best part about this is that it will help you curl your lashes. It really will curl it up. The bad thing about this, is that it still will smudge. So I don’t use this on a daily basis. Let’s face it I hardly use mascara nowadays for work. But when I do, I won’t use this. This I will use at night, when I’m going out for dinner. Or on weekends when I have a short day. So ya, I like it, but the smudge. Ugh! Will not buy again, but maybe I’ll try the waterproof one. 

Eyeko Eye Do Mascara

I got this for $15 during sale. The price is quite fair. Eyeko has a few different type of mascara but this was the one on sale. A lengthening and strengthening mascara that is a collaboration with Alexa Chung. It includes a mascara shield which I think it’s a better use for a guitar pick. 

Anyway, the wand is a quite unique. It’s a bit jagged. It has long and short bristle. A bit tempered at the end. The problem I have with this is that it is quite a big wand. The jagged length of the bristle doesn’t make it easier to get into the lashes. So I find that this works better for people with actual lengthy lashes. It’s just hard to really get them coated if you have short lashes. 

The formula. It’s quite waterproof. Well at least to me. It smudge when I apply this cause the wand is too big. But if I remove the smudge straight away, it’s easy to. When I wash my face with a cleanser, this doesn’t really get off. So makeup remover is the only way I can remove this with. 

The only way I find that this work for me is by curling my lashes first. If I don’t, it will just clump. So curling help it a bit. 

So not a big fan of this. I’m sure the other mascara is much better. And I’m sure if you have naturally long lashes, this will be good for you. But for me, not so much. 

Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara


I wanted to try this for so long. Cause someone wore this and it looks like she’s wearing fake lashes. Her lashes look so full and she said this is what she wore. After 7 years later, I managed to try it. 

It’s a semi wet formula. So the formula is average. It coats every lash perfectly. In term how volumising it is, it does a good job. But it’s not lengthening. It’s not waterproof, so it smudge really easily. That’s the thing I don’t like about this. It’s the smudging. No matter how I use it, it still smudges. So after awhile I give up. 

When I try to use this again a month later, the formula started to dry a bit. So the volumising property is close to none. It became a normal mascara which I still like, but the smudging is there. 

So this is a fail for me. Maybe it will be better for those with shorter lashes. 

Urban Decay Cannonball


I was quite surprise to see this in Sephora. I thought they would have taken this off the shelves long ago. Isn’t it the way with these kind of product? Anyway I’m glad I saw it. Cause I always wanted to try it as some youtuber was saying how this is the best waterproof mascara. 

I do agree that it is a waterproof mascara. It just won’t budge nor smudge. Quite hard to remove too. It’s also quite lengthening which is nice. But this is not a full mascara. It doesn’t give me a very full lash. It’s just very lengthening but no volume. And you have to coat the lashes quickly cause it will get crisp within 5 seconds. So this is a good topper. First step to use a volumising mascara, then top with this = full looking lashes. 

Long Extreme Double Stretch Mascara

 

So this is a double ended mascara. One side is a primer the other side a black mascara. It’s a natural bristle wand and not too thin not too fat. It is a lengthening mascara. An average one. It’s good for those who already have full lashes. As this will just help to lengthen it. If those with sparse lashes, then it won’t be so dramatic like the ads. 

I prefer to use it on its own without the primer cause I’m lazy that way. It’s very natural looking to me. It coats all my lashes evenly and without any clumps. 

If I use with the primer, I find that it can get a little bit clumpy. Plus your lashes will be white in colour. So you have to use the primer then quickly use the mascara. It has to be fast to make sure that the primer doesn’t dry up on your lash and thus leaving you with white lashes. So sometime it can get a bit tricky. And it will kind of clump. It doesn’t give volume so it’s just not pretty. 

So in the end, I don’t think this is worth the hassle. But I mean it’s a good mascara in the first few uses. 

Clump Crusher

 
All of 2013(?) when this mascara come out, all I really wanted was to try it. A mascara that doesn’t clump the lashes. I never heard anyone say anything bad about it. So after all these while, I finally get my hands on one. So excited. Does this really doesn’t clump?

I find that if you use a few coats, it will eventually clump the lashes. It’s good as any good mascara can be. But it really is just that. Nothing sort of special. But I like the fact that even if you don’t curl your lashes, this can curl it a bit. So it won’t be so straight. So it’s really nice. 

Manga

Some people love this. Some people hate it. It’s a non waterproof mascara. So cleaning is easy. But I find that it does last on the lashes until you want it gone. It gives volume and it can look very spidery. It will clump. So I really have to just coat it thinly. 

The wand is flexible with the bristles having different lengths. It’s good for coating and separating the lashes. At least that’s what it’s suppose to do. As long as I just use a few thin coats, the mascara is good enough for me. In term of curling, it is ok. 

Overall, it’s ok for me. It’s volumising. As long as it’s a bit, it won’t clump. Not my fav, but it’s ok.
