Mascara Wish List

You all know that I love my Fairydrops Platinum Mascara (which I recently reviewed here) but it is getting very hard to find now. I even asked my friend to get me a tube in Japan but she couldn't find Fairydrops anywhere! I know I have the option of Cult Beauty, but that will be when I get desperate. Despite this sad revelation, I thought it would also be a good opportunity to share with you some of the other mascaras I've been eyeing to try that could serve as a good stand-in until I could get my hands on the Fairydrops Mascara.

I've come to realize that I have high expectations when it comes to mascaras. I look for definition (so just a little bit of volume and separation), a considerable amount of length, curl-holding, non-smudging, non-flaking, and long-lasting. In other words, a good all-rounder, waterproof mascara. It took a while, but I've narrowed my list down to four possible mascaras.


Max Factor Clump Defy Extensions

The only non-waterproof mascara on this list, mainly because it doesn't have a waterproof counterpart. This mascara claims to add length, while separating the lashes due to its anti-clumping formula to give a very clean result. Max Factor has a good reputation with mascaras as well so it would be very interesting to try this.

Innisfree Skinny Microcara Waterproof 

Korean beauty doesn't really give much focus to lashes (unlike the Japanese) but this mascara caught my eye because it has the thinnest wand I have ever seen. My friends Alex from The Red Eyeliner and Danie from That Nugu really like the original formula of this because it gives a very natural look. Though lacking on the volume, I think this would be good for days when I don't want to draw too much attention to my lashes.

L'oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Waterproof

I don't think I've ever talked about a L'oreal product on this blog, but this one caught my eye. The brush has a lot of bristles to coat every lash without any clumping. It also claims to be smudge proof, which is very important as I like my lashes to look and stay the way they did after I just applied mascara. This is the one I have the easiest access to, so we'll see!

Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof

This is the newest one on my list, and probably the one I want the most. Despite its claims on volume, the result it gives it a more clean, fanned out lash look with more length. It can also be built up for a more dramatic lash look for the evening. If it is as good as everyone says it is, this sounds like a much cheaper alternative to my Fairydrops Mascara.

That's all for now! If you guys have any recommendations for a mascara, please leave me a comment down below! Also if you know where else to get Fairydrops because I'm really going to miss my tube once it runs out. :(
