  • Mascara (S)HIT List

    Mascara (S)HIT List
    The form you are trying to view has been unpublished.

    Hello! This is my first blogpost I ever written. In my journey of finding the best, I’ve came across a lot of shitty mascaras and sometimes due to my limited capacity of a brain, I tend to forget which mascara I’ve tried before. Hence, I wanted to compile a list of mascaras that I’ve ever tried. Lucky me, my sister has a blog and she allow me to post my entry. (nepotism at its best).

    When I was a teenager, I thought buying a mascara is just that, buying a mascara. Nothing special about it. Go to the drugstore, pick one mascara, and use it. Simple as that. I didn’t give a damn if my eyes started to look like a panda at the end of the day, I thought mascara supposed to do that. Well, how wrong I could be! My first ever mascara was a Revlon mascara, I don’t remember which one, and it smudges like crazy. Then, by accident, I bought a Maybelline mascara (because the Revlon one was  discontinued) and IT DIDN’T SMUDGE. I was so surprised that it didn’t smudge! So, hence began my journey to trying out mascara.

    Over the years, what I look for in a mascara is simple:

    • Smudge-proof (very very important since I  live in hot humid climate)
    • Can hold the curl (I always uses lash curler every single day)
    • Length and volume. But if i could only choose one, volume it is.
    • Easy to apply

    Simple right? NOT. It is very hard to find the one perfect mascara. Sometimes, I even layered two mascara to get the result that I like.

    A little bit about me: I have dry/combination skin, my eyelid can get quite oily by mid-afternoon. I have hooded eyes. I’m using eye cream, under-eye concealer and set it with RCMA loose powder. No baking involved, it’s already dry as a desert.

    Lashes condition: Long (thanks to the eyelash serum) and very fine lashes.

    Lash curler that I used is from Shu Uemura.

    All of the mascaras mentioned will be in black, unless stated otherwise.

    SPOILER: The only brown mascara (Heroine Make) that I have turned up REDDISH BROWN on my lashes.

    I’m rating the parameter out of 5, 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest:

    1. Waterproof – Yes or No answer, based on the packaging itself. I never test out this claim because I never ever went swimming.
    2. Smudge – 1 being the least likely it smudges and 5 being the smudgiest of them all.
    3. Curling Power – Can it curl my lashes without me using a lash curler?
    4. Droopy – This is when after you curl your lashes, and after applying the mascara it started to droop or back to your pre-curl condition. (RUDE)
    5. Lengthen – 1 being the least likely it can lenghten your lashes and 5 being the most lenghtening.
    6. Volume – 1 being the least likely and 5 being the most volumising.
    7. Clumpy – I do not like spider and I definitely do not want a spider legs on my eyes. I love feathery lashes. This is a bit tricky, some mascaras are great if you apply one coat and when you get into the second coat, it suddenly clump together. I rarely apply one coat of mascara (except when it’s a new tube), so second coat is where my judgement begin.
    8. Flaky – This can happen right away or the worst, happen during mid-day which is RUDE. It’s when particles of your mascara started to fall off to your under-eye area. Sure, you can dust it off lightly with a brush, but how many of you bring a brush to your office toilet just to dust off the flakes? I don’t.
    9. Crispy Lash – When I’m thinking, I have the habit of brushing my lashes up with my point finger, just like when applying a mascara, but instead of using the mascara’s wand, I’m using my finger. Some formula will leave your lashes so damn crispy just like a fried chicken skin. Prolong use of this kind of mascara can lead to dry and brittle lashes and hence make it easier to fall off.
    10. Formula – Wet or Dry? With wet formula, you gonna have a long drying time and in the meantime pray you won’t sneeze. Some mascara have a wet formula, but can dry fairly fast, like less than 15 seconds (estimated time, I never timed it).

    From time to time, I will update the list below if I tried any new mascara. Enjoy!

    TIPS: If you have a smudgy mascara that you love, you can try layering it with clear brow gel on top.
