Product Description

Up to 12x more LASH IMPACT! A new generation formula enriched with collagen!

Hyaluronic acid: Works to retain water for plumper lashes

Color & Pigmentation:
I think this one only comes in black as i've yet to see other colors at the displayers. It's really black! haha! :D

Texture & Scent:
This mascara goes on thickly, so a lash comb is a must! Cleaning some mascara off the applicator wand prior to applying would help too! This has a pretty strong chemical scent that's quite unpleasant, but it goes away quickly!

Packaging:

Brand new in plastic wrap! :D

This mascara comes in the usual tube. The applicator head is actually quite big, but surprisingly its quite easy to control without accidentally smearing mascara on my face! :D



Time Test:
This mascara did not smudge or flake on me despite wearing it for the entire day! :D

Price & Availability:
This mascara costs RM49.90 (approx. US$13.49), which is think is a bit expensive for drugstore standards! This mascara should be available at all Loreal displayers at Watsons / Guardian / Your local supermarket! :D

Usage:
Since this one volumizes quite well, i'll probably use it during the night. It works wonderfully as a day mascara too if you apply just one coat! :D


My $0.02:

After reading quite a few raves for this mascara, i went out and got myself one (got suckered in by the "SALE" word! lol!)! :D

Well, 12x more lash impact is quite lofty to claim! While i don't think this mascara gave such a huge impact on my lashes, i do think that this one's pretty good! :D

This mascara plumps up and lengthens my lashes nicely! It CAN be clumpy, so do use a lash comb and clean some product off the wand before applying! I also liked how it didn't weigh my lashes down despite it being quite thick! :D

Here's a bunch of pics for you to judge for yourself:










As you can see, this mascara gives my lashes quite abit of volume and length ya?

The only thing i didn't like about it is the strong smell! I was quite shocked by the smell the first time i use this one! lol! Thankfully the smell disappeared quickly! :)

In a nut shell, i kinda like this mascara, and would repurchase in the future. But as with all makeup junkies, i would like to try out other mascaras first! :D

Psssst: This mascara is going for RM41.88 only at Guardian. And if you're a fan of the Gentle Lip & Eye Makeup Remover for Waterproof Makeup (or been wanting to try it out), do look out for this:



This kit comes with this mascara, the makeup remover plus a free heated eyelash curler, and it retails for RM69.90 (which is a great deal if you ask me!)! :D
