Happy April everyone! Where has the first quarter of this year gone? Isn’t it funny how quickly time passes, especially if nothing significant happens? But I digress.
Now, you’d have to be completely disinterested in films to now knot that a live action version of Beauty and the Beast has been released starring Emma Watson and Belle, Dan hot-all-of-a-sudden Stevens as Beast and Luke always-hot Evans as Gaston. During an interview with In To The Gloss, Emma says that the only mascara she uses is by DHC (it’s a great interview btw, as she really goes in to detail about her favourite beauty products).
Anyway back to mascara. DHC makes great skincare and I do adore their foundation. I’ve never tried their mascara though, so I got my hands on one to try to see if Emma really knows her stuff.
Japanese mascara is a staple of mine (I currently use Paul & Joe’s Waterproof mascara which is great). On my lashes which are stubbornly straight, they are the only ones what will hold and enhance curl (and not ALL Japanese brands do. I haven’t found a Korean mascara that will either).
So what does this mascara offer?
This mascara is a ‘tube’ one, which means it will come off with warm water and gentle pressure. Don’t dab and bit of warm water on your lashes then start pulling – just soak them throughly in warm water and wait for them to come off, it’s so much gentler. It won’t smudge or flake and comes with a smallish brush.
There is nothing stand out about the tube – it’s a very simple grey lightweight plastic tube. This isn’t a bad thing ok, it doesn’t look fancy but am I the only person that has issues throwing a mascara away after a few months if it comes in a stunning container?!
The brush is perfect for lashes like mine as I can get to even the shorter lashes.
Anyway the mascara is fantastic.
It has a nice lightweight texture – it doesn’t feel clumpy or heavy at all and importantly, it lengthens in a clean way and holds curl. IT HOLDS CURL! HURRAH. I also found that it didn’t smudge, flake or move during the day and my eyes do.
Now one thing this mascara gives which my beloved Paul and Joe doesn’t, is easy removal. The P&J takes some serious eye make up remover to take off and there are nights I admit I fall asleep with it still on because I simply cannot take the time it takes to remove it all. This comes off in the shower so – score.
Left eye is wearing it, right is not:
I admit this is my current go to mascara – I highly recommend this to anyone who also has straight lashes that refuse to hold curl.
This costs £15.90 and you can buy it here.
