My search for the perfect mascara for Asian lashes is never ending it seems. It’s also quite tiresome to buy a new mascara then find out it’s a dud….
One of Skinfood’s newest ranges is the Seaweed Cosmetic Line. The range has a summer feel to it, and includes waterproof eyebrow pens, waterproof eyeliners (so gorgeous looking but hard to get hold of), two waterproof mascaras in black and navy and 2 bronzers!
I bought the mascara in black:
I like the seaweed theme, I am digging it. This mascara has a special wiggly shaped brush and you are supposed to use the end of it to layer the mascara on at the ends of the eyelashes.
The brush I like a lot – it fits the curve of my eyes nicely and gets into all the lashes.
The mascara is somewhat dry textured. I have been using this for a while and I found that it was ok with holding curl; ok but not perfect.
Then the second week I wore this I found it very flaky. Black strands and clumps under my eye and if they got in – ouch. I found the lashes clumped together too.
It’s by no means a hideous mascara, it’s fine but had a dryness to it which meant it flaked easily. Was it waterproof? Kind of yeah. It was more likely to crumble off then run off.
On my lashes:
See? Not feeling it. It’s also a bit tricky to remove.
A bit of a miss I think although I don’t mind paring this with another wetter mascara.
