So to start off, what do I look for in a mascara? I have short to medium straight lashes, so what I look for in a mascara is length and the ability to hold a curl well. I also like mascara on my bottom lashes so that is a factor I consider. I've recently been looking for a mascara that is water resistant so that it'll hold a curl well but won't pull out my lashes when I try to remove the mascara. The Fairy Drops mascara is water resistant and that is the reason for me purchasing it. It claims to also curl the lashes which was another condition that I was looking for. It is a fiber mascara!
I think the mascara does a nice job of giving non-clumpy length and even a bit of volume. It works fine on my lower lashes (not amazing, but not bad...pretty good) It also washes off easily with warm water but it does not smudge throughout the day from sweat and heat. I do have some problems with this mascara though because I am so insistent on a mascara that will hold curl.
When I apply this mascara, I begin by properly curling my lashes. This means I curl at the root of my lashes, and I continue curling until I reach the tips on my lashes. This way my lashes do not look crimped. I then apply one coat of the mascara. In a matter on minutes, my curl is gone and my lashes are back to being straight and point downwards. At first I was very disappointed with what had happened, but after the mascara had dried, I re-curled my lashes with the same steps as above, and found that the second curl lasted all day! So for my lashes at least there is a method that I must apply this mascara. I curl, apply, and curl once again. This gives me the desired effect and I am a happy camper.
Here are pictures of me wearing the mascara, I'm sorry that I did not give a before picture:
Overall, I am pretty happy with this mascara. I recommend it to people who don't mind spending a little time on this mascara. It's a good mascara for weak lashes (removal issues) and for a everyday clean look that can be dramatized during the night time. Out of 10, I give this mascara an 8, because I like everything except for the fact that I have to curl my lashes twice. Plus the packaging is so cute!
If you would like to purchase this mascara, it is a Sephora exclusive. You can buy it in Sephora stores and sephora.com. It sells for 24 dollars, not including tax.
