I remember a few years ago, this mascara finally became available at Sephora. I jumped on it and bought it right away, and I really enjoyed the few months of dramatic lashes that it gave me. :) This past holiday season, I decided to grab this again during one of Sephora's sales. This fiber mascara really attaches to my lashes and creates long lashes with CURL! Epic, right? My lashes are an ok lenght, but stick straight down and are quite fine, so you can imagine how big of a difference this makes to me. With Diorshow Maximizer, I see even more of a pronounced effect.
I know the wand must look crazy, but it really works for me. If I look downwards while applying this, and use the wand as an upside-down U, it really lifts my lashes. Not sure how I ended up using it as an upside down U (the result of a Lisa Eldridge video, perhaps?) but it really does work for me when it comes to these types of wands in general.
Check it out - here are my straight lashes without mascara. Look at the difference and CURL with one coat!!! I love it, and it really makes SUCH a difference. Please excuse the random leftover makeup on my lower lashline, LOL! And dude, my BROWS! Good thing I just bought an Anastasia brow kit to play with...
Anyway, back to the mascara! The mascara doesn't smudge or flake on me, but the fibers were initially very unusual to me. When you remove this, it does remove quite easily but with small fibers. For those not used to fiber mascaras, it often comes out in little tubes that look like lashes, and that freaked me out the first time around!
I feel the need to mention that fiber mascaras are not ones to be wearing if you rub your eyes with cotton pads when removing eye makeup. I have a tendency to do this, as I'm not always patient enough to use the Lisa Eldridge technique for makeup removal - soak a cotton pad, rest it on eyes, and pat gently. As a result, the fibers turn into crumbs, and I end up with mascara fibers in my eyes. Ouch! Such a fail on my part.... You've been warned! Don't be like me! Also, I don't know what possesses me to NOT use this technique, as it is just the easiest removal ever. Poof, eye makeup gone, no effort needed!
Anyways, what do you think of Fairydrops Scandal Queen Mascara? What is your favorite mascara or trick for pesky lashes?? Do share! :)
