In my search for a good non waterproof mascara that will curl my lashes without an eyelash curler or if I do curl my lashes, will not uncurl them, I found Japanese brand fiber mascaras work decently well. Canmake Gokubuto mascara has been my HG mascara as it somewhat curls my lashes and is water resistant, which makes it easily removable.
On Saturday Mai and I were shopping in Bed Bath and Beyond and we came upon L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes mascara. The packaging says that lashes will appear fuller, longer and curled and that it is easily removable with soap and water.
Mai's favorite L'Oreal mascara has been discontinued so we both decided to give this a try.
Here are my lashes before applying mascara and which have not been curled at all.
As you can see, they are quite straight.
Here are my lashes after applying the mascara. Again, I didn't use an eyelash curler to curl my lashes.
Wow, they are significantly curled! This mascara didn't clump on me and even after 10 hours of wear, it didn't flake. I'm just so amazed that my lashes curled as much as it did without using an eyelash curler. It did wash off easily, although I always use an eye makeup remover when I wear mascara, irregardless of whether it's waterproof or not. I liked it so much that I have already gone back and bought a backup of it.
Mai has had the same results and she really likes it too. The only thing that she doesn't like is the brush. I think that she finds it too long because she said she nearly poked her eye out. I haven't had any problems though.
In case anyone is wondering, my eyemake up consisted of using NARS Hanamichi palette with Urban Decay Half-Baked. This was taken on Monday, which was Chinese New Year so I wanted to do my eye colors to match Chinese New Year. I also used the red color in Hanamichi as my blush. I'm totally loving this palette and am so glad that I ended up purchasing it.
