Fairy Drop Mascara

Packaging : A+

Volume: B

No Clumping: A

Lengthening: A

This mascara does not budge once it dries. It is a rather “wet” mascara and it took some time for it to set. Meanwhile, it left some black smudges which were tough to remove! Otherwise, it delivers super curl and does not clump much. It makes my lower lashes look very long! This mascara reminds me of FASIO’s mascara minus the crazy holding power of Fasio’s Mascara ( a good thing for me)… I like it because it is a nice black and will make a good everyday mascara. I think the “tear drop” wand is a little gimmicky but cute and I am not quite sure if it contributes to the lift and curl. I do know that it took me some time to get used to the shape, cause my lashes are used to feeling the traditional shaped wand… Otherwise the cutest mascara I have owned to date!

Another product I am starting to get the hang of is MAC GREASEPAINT STICK. It’s actually not greasy at all to my surprise and the black has a little purple sparkle to it which I like. The best part about this stick is that if you use it alone, smudged a little, with mascara, it looks like you bothered to blend out a black eyeliner. If you would like to intensify a dark color, this works amazing too. Lazy me likes the convenience, plus the fact that it doesn’t smudge much. Only downside is that this stick finishes way to fast and it can actually feel quite dry when I don’t wear a more emollient eye base.

Speaking of Games, Toothfairy invited me to join her and I thought, why not? Easy to play and fun too !

This game is to share a piece of you, every month. That way, you and your readers can see what's happening in your life, including the changes. I.E. one month, you might love chocolate, a few months later you've might come to hate it. It's also to remind ourselves of people you love and the plans you have.

This month....
I like: Free time. It seems to be more hectic than usual.

I don't like: Eating for the sake of filling my tummy.I like to eat cause the food looks enticing or when I have a craving… my food should satisfy cravings… hehe

I want you to know:  I’m really trying to find time to do more tutorials and also product reviews :)

I've planned: To give myself a tiny holiday in a few weeks time.

I want to say to someone special: Nana, Sijia, Ms Ee, gerry ! I’ve known u all for the longest of time and I couldn’t ask for better friends. ME MISS U ALL!

This is a nice way to get to know everyone a little better!! So if you wana participate, just zip on over to notes from the toothfairy blog !!

that mascara sounds and just look so cute, thanks for the review! the wand is unique and would probably take time for me to get use to as well, it looks like i would probably poke my eyes and make a mess :)

Ahh, the mascara looks like the Rimmel Sexy Curves!! But with a cuter name ;)

And great review on the MAC GreasePaint Stick, I don't really what to do with it if I get it because I don't use eyeliners often enough..

The greasepaint stick sounds great for lazy people like me to achieve a quick smoked out eyeliner effect. It looks amazing on you Lane.

Amy, the wand is pretty weird. It makes me feel like there's nothing coating my lashes even though I am coating it. a strange sensation. but the effect of the masacara is really good, my hubby noticed my lashes!hahah

Dee! Thanks babes!!

Noble, Thks!

Daituf! Huk huk huk... I bet u could win the lottery too * winks* ... no such luck with me babes

lisa! I've read so many gd reviews on rimmel's mascara. I gotta try it one day. after Blair got me my first rimmel product( a lippy), I am kinda tempted to try out other products from them too...




Anna, ohh... I'm not sure if they have this mascara online too...

Uinisan, I hope u play the game soon! would like to know u better too!
Also, I think ur HR mascara should be even better than this drugstore mascara , hehe

Tris & Angela , Thanks :)

Zoe! u are so lovely... I've got to thank you for giving me great ideas and suggestions for my past looks and tutorials :) U're so sweet and wonderful !

Friendz!! Trust me i am super lazy too! I've been in a no makeup mood lately and this stick is all I need sometimes and some mascara! Easy babes!
