Quick Mascara Reviews


Mascara is one of those items some women can’t leave the house without, but it’s one of those items I tend to skip if I am feeling lazy.  It smudges on me so easily (both above and below my eyes), my lashes HAVE to be curled ahead of time, and a specific eye makeup remover MUST be used afterwards – it just becomes a process I can’t be bothered with.

In any case, I had a bunch of mascaras sitting in my mascara cup waiting to be used, and I FINALLY made myself use them up.  For quick reference, I have short, Asian lashes and must use waterproof or smudge-proof mascara.

Here are some quick thoughts on them:

Lancome Hypnose Waterproof

  • Decently waterproof (not very much smudging)
  • VERY little length, mostly volumizing, but it doesn’t claim to be a lengthening mascara anyways
  • Will not repurchase as ideally I like mascaras that do both lengthening and volumizing
  • Gets clumpy very easily, so it’s “no clumping” claims are unfounded
  • Might pick up Lancome Hypnose Drama Waterproof one of these days as it’s one of our favorite beauty blogger RaeView’s fave

Fairy Drops Mascara (pink packaging with blue drawing)

  • Very good at lengthening and volumizing
  • Decently smudge-proof although definitely still smudges a little
  • Will repurchase if it was more readily available in the US.  Those living in Asia with easy access to Fairy Drops, I envy you.

Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara

  • Not specifically a waterproof mascara, but still pretty good at not smudging
  • Gave good length and volume
  • Supposedly good for bottom lashes but as my bottom lashes are nonexistent, I’m not really sure
  • Might repurchase if it was more readily available in the US

Bottom Line: I still like Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus the best and I’ve gone back to using that.  I have a lot of mascaras that I stocked up on when I went to Asia, but I’m eager to try out some Maybelline fan favorites, namely The Falsies WP and The Colossal Cat Eyes WP.

What are your favorite mascaras?
