Review of MISSHA Mascara Base by bingbing
I think I paid about AUD7 bux for this baby which I bought on a whim. I'm so glad I did.
The packaging is nothing special - just an ordinary white tube with a silver lid, but when you open it up, this mascara base is chockers with little fibre bits in it. It leaves all other bases I've ever tried for dead. Maybelline and L'Oreal's fibre bases don't have anything on this one.
I curled my lashes, then put this on. Minimal clumping which was a pleasant surprise. In my experience from putting little hairy things on, there's been more clumping involved. Used the slow zig zag wiggle waggle method, combed through several times, then put some normal black mascara on afterwards. Use the eyelash comb through it (the Tweezerman is excellent - but be careful, those tines are sharp and spikey). And there they were - amazingly long luscious thick lashes. This lasted from 7pm til 5am on humid NYE with nary a smudge. I'll definitely buy more when this runs out.
On another note, if you find mascaras droop your carefully curled lashes, try this. Put your mascara on, (eyelashes droop), then push up your lashes into a curled shape with your fingers. The heat from the pads of your fingers will set the curl. Hope that helps!
From the website:
Base Mascara is used throughout the process of applying mascara; it is a product that lengthens the lasting effects of volume and curling by as twice as much. The triple effects of the Base Mascara make the eyelashes longer, voluminous, and curly.
1. Provides moisture to the eyelashes: containing natural moisturizers, it prevents excessive dryness.
2. Increases the vividness of mascaras: the white base coating layer makes the color of the mascara darker and more vivid.
