It’s rubbish to want something so badly, only for it to be a disappointment. Having said that, I’d rather try it and be disappointed than not get to try it at all. Apart from a a Chimichanga. Tell me they are delicious.
I have wanted this Sony CP mascara, Lash Sculpture for-ever. Yes it’s sold on some online beauty stores but for rip off prices. I have tried getting someone to find it for me but it wasn’t that easy to locate in Japan. Finally, Adambeauty.com got it back in stock! I was so excited I ordered two:
Clever move, considering I throw out 80% of the mascara’s that I buy for just generally being pants.
Check out the supposed results!
Take away the packaging and you are left with a simple red tube – but this isn’t the magic behind this mascara – it’s the brush, one of the most unusual I have seen that is so appealing.
The brush is a long half moon shape and this is a comb mascara. The packaging looks cheap:
Well at least no one will try to steal it.
I actually love this kind of comb mascara – if you have short lashes like me, try them – they seem to get to every single lash can really add length. I do find comb brushes best for length and bristle applicators better for volume.
From the top – it’s like a double ended rubbery comb thing. I like the applicator a lot – the shape of it makes it really nice to apply on the top lashes but also the bottom – especially the bottom.
But look at the formula – it’s a really heavy slightly gooey texture. No fibers (I think) just goo….
My lashes are getting a bit stronger after the harsh perm I had on them. Still a bit crinkly. My M2 lash serum is helping repair them though.
Eek. The brush is somewhat difficult to control. A lot of excess mascara gathers around the base of the brush and before you know it you’ve applied quite a lot. On the other hand, you can wipe it down of course – but still there is quite a lot of product between the bristles.
No doubt that this is a really dark mascara and it builds volume but I tried a few times and all I got was a clumpy mess. The formula is SO rich. Curl was so-so – I thought it would be far better though.
Two coats – and forget it! It looks like an old mascara, not a brand new one:
– This mascara is about £12 to get shipped over so it’s not cheap
– It’s hard to locate
– The formula is too clumpy and thick
– Hard to remove
– The brush is a cool idea
– Great for bottom lashes
This was a big fat fail for me. Perhaps some people have had more luck with the formula but I struggled to make it work – it was like tar. I don’t see how such a thick formula could be good for short, sparse Asian lashes.
