WHY I LIKE THIS PRODUCT

I can’t believe it’s taken me over 1 year to review this mascara! Of course, I’m no longer using this mascara because it’s all been used up a long time ago. Thank you Joyce for picking this up for me when she was in Hong Kong. The sad thing about this is that Maybelline never released this product in North America. It was only available for a limited amount of time back in 2010 in some Asian countries. It still bothers me that we, living in North America, can never get something THIS cute in our drugstores! Come on, @MaybellineCAN, please bring this product (or something like this) to Canada!

First of all, the packaging is beautiful! There’s nothing for me to complain about! Plus, I really like the wand of the mascara. It’s a comb wand so it makes it really easy for me to use it with my short, stubby Asian lashes. The wand is created to separate lashes and it does that quite well.


I really like how this mascara holds up my curls! It’s the ONLY mascara, aside from the Majolica Majorca one, that is able to keep my curls lasting all day long! The only complaint that I have about the formula is the fact that it is quite thick. So using more than two coats, your lashes will get clumpy. But it’s still able to give my lashes great length and great curl even though there’s not enough volume. Still, it’s a good product when it comes to lengthening and separating your lashes.


Since the item is limited edition, it’s no longer available. Please note that this mascara is really hard and stubborn to get off. You’ll either need to use TONS of makeup remover or a really good one. The Bobbi Brown Instant Long-Wear makeup remover takes this off amazingly. If anyone know a dupe for this mascara, please let me know, I would love to get my hands on it! XD
