Do note that Ringo's review is not included this time round as she is usually busy and it'd be really weird to ask her out for mascara shots!
TADANG! The FAIRY DROPS Platinum Water Proof Mascara ~ Can you see that this mascara has FIVE kinds of treatment essence?! FIVE, namely Collagen, Scwaren Oil, Hyallon, Jojoba Oil and Panthenol. We all know what Collagen is so I'm not gonna talk about that. Unfortunately, after researching, I still have no idea as to what Scwaren Oil and Hyallon is. Jojoba is pronounced as HOHOba! Most people don't know that but now you do! Jojoba oil is supposed to provide moisture so I'm guessing that in this case, it'll condition our lashes. As for Panthenol, it is also moisturizing and it supposedly coats our hair and seal the surface, lubricating our hair shaft and making it look shiny. So... We'll have glossy lashes?
Here's a sneak peek as to what the wand will look like!
The back of the box. Because I can't read Japanese, I did not take a close up of the box.
This however seems to illustrate the effects of the mascara well!
GOTTA LOVE THE PACKAGING! It's like a shiny metallic warm pink with white graffiti like illustrations on it. There's like white sparkles and the overall packaging is just so cute? Not girly but cute. Did I mention that I really like pink?
Now you can see the unique wand!
Close up of the wand! Personally, I hate my mascaras to have a brush applicator. It's usually too big for my eyes and I have the tendency to just stick it in when I'm not careful. Then it'll turn into a black mess on my eyes and I have the I-just-got-punched look. This applicator however makes life so much easier. It's curved to fit the contours of our eyes and catches our lashes easily with those three little balls. The tip of the wand is also slimmer so that you can catch the tiny lashes at the front of our eyes.
Now I'm going to show you the before and after!
Left with mascara, right without, looking straight ahead.
Left with mascara, right without, looking downwards.
Left with mascara, right without, looking upwards.
Here's a sideways one for you all to see the curls!
So how does this mascara fare in terms of length, volume and curls? I have to say that this mascara really matches up to my favorite MM one. It's not very visible in the picture of me looking straight ahead because I have eyeliner on. However when you look at the looking upwards picture, you can see that my lashes are nicely curled and both length and volume is there! It's supposed to be waterproof and smudgeproof much like my MM one and it works exactly like it is supposed to. It sometimes flakes into my eyes though and that hurts a little but I don't think most people will face this problem. I face it because sometimes I stick the mascara wand too close to my eyes. I can wear this all day without any smudging and this is really waterproof.
In fact, it's a pain the the butt to remove this! I am unable to use my Dove lathering remover for this, I have to use my Biore one instead because this is one tough mascara. This however only means that it really holds your curls in place and lasts you an entire day?
Also, do note that this will work well with a curler but not the batter operated heated curler. This mascara is NOT YET available in any outlets in Singapore BUT you can get it from BlingAlways for just $32.90! They have a whole range of hard-to-find skincare and cosmetics there so it's a great place for online shopping~
Thanks to them, you can look forward to a CandyDoll 2 way cake review, coming up soon!!!
Ability to hold curls : ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ (Up and curled all day!)
Lasting Power : ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ (No smudging nor flakes on me~)
Length : ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ (Really long and length is buildable.)
Volume : ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆ (Would love for it to go on thicker but maybe that's why this mascara isn't clump?)
Overall : ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ (The brush makes application a breeze and a few wriggles will do the trick. One coat gives you nice lashes so I personally believe it's quite worth the price!)
