The new year is approaching and I did not want to leave my readers without at least one new review before 2014 actually arrives! Whoa, it’s even here on Christmas day! So I bring you a review on a mascara I really enjoyed using. I’m sure a lot of people who are really into reviews by youtubers or bloggers have heard of the brand Fairy Drops? I think they were (are?) even sold in Sephora.. if I’m not mistaken haha!
I have tried many mascaras before and one thing is clear, I can only use Japanese mascaras. Western mascaras just do not do it for me. None of them are waterproof despite claiming to be just that! I have to use waterproof mascara even if I’m not planning to run through rain because I have such oily lids. If they are not waterproof, I would end up being a raccoon in a couple of hours. All the western mascaras I’ve tried have left me looking like a panda.
Japanese mascaras on the other hand are known for their lengthening properties and also the ability to stay on, no matter what. Take Majolica Marjorca for example; they have to release their own remover for their mascara because nothing else can take it off. The problem is that not everybody wants to pay extra to buy a remover specifically made for one brand’s mascara. Nor do we want to scrub at our eyes until we get wrinkles to get it off with other eye makeup removers.
Fairy Drops is the happy medium between all of that. It comes with all the things we love about Japanese mascaras, but without the dilemma of how to remove it afterwards.
The brush is interesting as it is spiraled. This really helps separate the lashes making sure every single lash is coated. I could definitely see the difference in Fairy Drops Platinum Mascara as compared to Majolica Majorca’s Lash Expander Frame Plus. One problem I found with MM’s mascara is that when I put it closer to my lash line, it irritates my eyes if any of it gets onto the waterline. I had no problems with that for Fairy Drops, which means I can get closer to the lash line and not have to worry about it being clumpy there.
Another thing about Fairy Drops when compared to MM’s mascara is that it gives a much more natural look. MM’s brush for Lash Expander Plus has one side to help separate the lashes and it does a pretty good job. However, because the formula is really wet, lashes tend to stick together a bit and it does not separate every lash as well as Fairy Drops. Fairy Drops’ formula is less wet which means quicker drying time (no need to be scared of it getting onto your under eye area) and also the brush is really able to separate each lash so that the fibers can lengthen each lash a lot more.
The MM mascara also posed a problem with rubbing off a bit onto my under eye area for a while. While it is not as much as any of the western mascaras I’ve tried over the years, it does still leave a bit at the edge of my eyes. Fairy Drops did not have this problem whatsoever. It stayed onto my lashes all day.
Removing it is also a lot simpler. When I use my cleansing oil, it comes right off without any problems. I find that MM’s mascara would only remove with certain cleansing oils so I would have to combine it with their mascara remover to really remove all the product – too time consuming. Fairy Drops stayed on all day and is easily removable with a cleansing oil – much more convenient.
If you’re in the market for a new mascara that can provide lengthening, but at the same time still give a natural look, definitely pick Fairy Drops’ Platinum Mascara up and give it a try. You won’t have any problems with looking like a raccoon after a couple hours if you have oily lids like I do. It’s also easily removable with any decent cleansing oil.
