Shiseido Dramatical Eyes Long & Curl – Review

I recently purchsed Dramatical Eyes Long mascara from a local Asian beauty products store. I’ve used it a few times now and I really like how it makes my lashes long but it doesn’t really do much in terms of volume. It contains fibers and you can see immediately when you look at the brush. Promises to curl the lashes are very minimal.

Benefit – Beyond Mascara “they’re Real!” – Review

It’s been such a long time since I’ve blogged!!  I moved to Taiwan a couple of months ago and am now working hard at my new job as a hair stylist.

Mascara is one of my must-haves in my make up kit because it gives me a quick pick-me-up in only a couple of minutes.  I bought Benefit’s new “they’re Real!” mascara a while ago and had high hopes for it but I prefer the Bad Gal version.  My favorite is the plum Bad Gal mascara as an everyday mascara.

I think the main reason is the brush.  I love applying mascara with the plump bristly brush that Bad Gal provides.  I feel it gives me a lot more volume than “they’re Real”.

With any mascara, if you want more volume, apply mascara to the roots of the lashes first, let dry, then apply another coat from root to ends.  Then repeat if necessary.  Usually, two coats is plenty for me.

If you want a more latex feel in your mascara and like a quick application for a dramatic feel, pick one up at your local beauty store.  Good luck!

 

Chanel Travel Makeup Palette with Travel Mascara.

I received this recently as a gift and I absolutely love it.  It comes with a blush brush, eyeshadow brush, eyeshadow sponge applicator, and mascara.  I can just put this in my bag and bring it everywhere for a quick touch up or save my life during those rushed mornings to school or work.  If you’re travelling sometime soon, remember to pick one up^^.

Wigs for your lashes.

Girls, got short lashes but don’t like wearing falsies?  Not a problem because fiberwigs are here to save the day!

I got this Flamingo Fiberwig Mascara from China and it works great!

Back of the box with instructions

It’s pretty straight forward as to how to use it.  First apply the black primer evenly onto your lashes.

Second, apply a thin layer of fiber by dabbing onto the lashes.  When applying fiber you don’t need a lot and start application at the middle of the lashes extending to the ends .

Use a lash brush to comb out any clumps and strays because the fibers can cause feathering on the lashes and it looks like your lashes have split ends.

For even longer lashes, just repeat steps one and two.  Make sure to let each coat dry to prevent clumping.

AFTER

Here’s a before and after picture(sorry about the blurry images).

TIP!  **A trick that you can try is using the fiberwig mascara first and after it dries follow up with another coat of volumizing mascara.**

This mascara is not waterproof and removes like the KissMe mascara, all you need is warm water but I prefer using makeup remover because it removes all of my makeup in one.

If you are in the Vancouver BC region, I would be more than happy to help you order them from China, but if you’re skeptical about products Made in China, you can always purchase ones available here!

Here’s a few other options that are also great products.
