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.
The first time I used this, a lot of “oil” came out. Then the product felt like it was half empty. I kept searching online if I got a used product. Some people did comment the product seems very little and will run out very fast. So I guess, ya ok, that meant it has very little product.
My shade is light-medium. It doesn’t look like the right shade, but once blended, it will blend nicely. It’s also quite long lasting. Great for undereyes. It’s a bit thick, at least it feels like that. But it is opaque when blended, so that’s quite nice. As it doesn’t feel heavy.
It’s not bad. Really. It just doesn’t feel like it’s worth your money. Cause it seems really empty. Like half of the product is gone. But I mean a little goes a long way, so it’s alright. Still a bit on the fence about this. So I don’t know. I will finish it up, but I probably will not repurchase. Then again, I do like that it is such a full coverage concealer. Hmm..
Got this in the Sephora lip set. I guess they give this out, cause the color is something most people don’t really use. It is a pretty orange, a bit on the milky side, like an orange pastel Popsicle. The gloss itself is not as pigmented, so the color is sheer out, thus making it easier to wear. It is a bit on the sticky side so it will last longer on the lips. The wand is also quite unique. The tip is a bit pointed. So like has a flat scoop. Overall is good lipgloss. Just the color takes a bit getting used to.
