I love this mascara!
It really makes my straight lashes long and full. The brush does take a bit of practice to work with and I find that using it sideways works best. Even though it's not waterproof it doesn't smudge
The only thing is that it dries fast...I think it's because it doesn't close properly like Dior mascaras that have that lock/click thing.
I quite liked the wet formula, but found the brush difficult to work with. It took quite a bit of effort to get my lashes looking even, because the 'bumps' coated my lashes, but the dips between the bumps didn't. This made for quite a gappy look, until I played around with it somewhat. The end result was very pretty - fluttery, fairy-like(?!) lashes, which looked extremely long and curled. I didn't get much in the way of volume, but I wasn't expecting that. My lashes held the curl well, but I did find that specks of mascara (presumably the fibres) migrated into my eyes - a deal-breaker for me.
I'd recommend this mascara to girls who want crazy length and whose lashes maybe struggle to hold a curl. But I'd say if you seek volume or have sensitive eyes, you should probably look elsewhere.
This is my first time to use a mascara with fibres. Its very intersting! And I love it! Firstly it hold a curl really really well - all day; the forumla is quite wet, but once it dries, it kinda turns water resistant and there is no flaking or smudging after a full days wear. That being said, it's very easy to remove with water as it just washes off as a whole, in fibre clumps I suppose. However, using makeup wipes does take a little bit longer.
I never used to wear mascara on my bottom lashes because I feared looking like a panda. BUT I can use this mascara knowing it will stay put - and it does! Very pleased.
For me, this mascara gives good length, definition, separation but only a little bit of volume. It really opens up your eyes.
I quite like this mascara! I got it in my Sephora Lashstash, and it was one of the mascaras I was most excited to try. This gives a very elegant, youthful, pretty look to my eyelashes, which I love. It's sort of a wispy, doe-eyed effect that's really sweet. It looks really lovely with a soft eyeshadow, like a champagne or rose gold, and not much eyeliner, if any.
Is it a look I want every day, though? Probably not. Some days I want a bit more depth with my mascara, especially when I'm doing bold or dark eyeshadow, and this doesn't show up very well on very striking eye makeup. It's better left as being the focus of the whole eye area. So yeah, not really an everyday mascara for me unless I'm on a natural, girly kick in my makeup routine!
The brush and packaging are great, I find. The design is quirky and adorable, and it stands out on my vanity. It takes a little playing around to figure out how to best use the wand, but once you get it it' super easy. I use the curved edge to mould around the curve of my lashes first, which puts the mascara on the base of the lashes, then I flip it over and use one of the 'bubbles' to even it out and apply product to the remainder of my lashes. This totally prevents clumping and gives the loveliest effect!
It's a little tricky to get off, I find. There's always a few little flakes of it left on my lashes after I've cleaned my face, which I don't usually get with mascaras. Not a big deal, just worth mentioning!
I agree with the review by shimmergirl. I also like dramatic, dark lashes. This is okay-- holds curl verrry well but that's not what I'm into, my lashes are curly anyway. The package is cute, and the brush is interesting, but the formula does seem a little harsh. Hard to tell if it's psychosomatic or not but I felt like I had fibers in my eyes after finding out it's a fiber mascara from Japan. It would be great for straight lashes, I think.
This mascara was not bad but there was nothing special about it either. I like thick, dramatic lashes and this mascara is better for a natural look. My lashes are dark, thick, and relatively curly already. This mascara held a curl very well, gave good definition, and added some length. It may be great for some people, but for me, this was not what I was looking for. If you are looking for length, there are many more mascaras out there that can do the job better. It does hold a curl well though.
I wanted to love this mascara so much, but it gave my eyes a HORRIBLE reaction! I have never reacted to a mascara, EVER so for that to happen is truly devastating. Every time I wore the mascara, my upper lash line would itch like crazy. When I removed the mascara I could see my lash line was puffy, red and flaky :/ I eliminated all other makeup products until the reaction went down, tried this mascara again (with no other products on my face) and yet again the reaction happened. If you purchase this mascara, I would definitely keep your receipt in case you need to return it. I loved the look this gave my lashes, but the reaction I had to it makes me give this 1 lippie :(
I got this mascara as part of the Sephora Lash Stash kit. It worked really well - it held curl and made my lashes look nice. I think it would be a bit easier to use in a full size. I will more than likely be buying a tube when I run out of my current mascaras!
I got this when i was in asia (waterproof, purple tube). Probably a little cheaper than the horrid 24 they go for at Sephora here, but not much. Honestly, my everyday, casual holy grail. Lengthens and thickens, holds a curl, doesnt smudge, doesn't clump. NOT dramatic, but sometimes I let it dry and add a few more coats and I've gotten a lot of compliments with this. It is gentle on the eyes, and I haven't had problems removing it unlike Lash Blast or Falsies. Sometimes I put falsies or some "more dramatic" mascara over it, for more effect, because Fairy Drops doesnt leave my lashes feeling brittle. Love love love, looking to buy the pink/gold packaging one at sephora when i run out. Definitely my HG mascara.
I got this in my Sephora Lash Stash kit, and I really think it would be better in a full sized version. The brush does an awesome job of curling lashes, but as with any mascara involving fibers it's difficult to transfer all the product easily from the wand to lashes. My tube didn't say waterproof but it did not budge all day and felt waterproof to me when I was trying to wash it off. It made my lashes look lush and full but not dramatic and full of volume which is what I wanted. Overall a good mascara for everyday, since it makes lashes full and natural looking.
