I have lots of Mascaras – half opened, half used – but I just had to buy Kose’s new – why? Because it comes with a lash ruler!
This mascara is supposed to make your lashes 3mm longer and the ruler is there to prove it.
I got this from eBay for about £10. It comes in a pretty pink tube:
The brush in an interesting spiral, which I have to say is EXCELLENT – one of the best brush designs I have used. It works well when you want to apply the mascara on the top of the lashes – you twirl and it grabs the hairs. It also separates well.
This mascara contains 5 types of fibers (don’t know which though!)
This is the ruler – this is the ruler!
Puny lashes before:
From the side:
Measured up on the card – barely touches the first line.
After mascara – not really 3mm longer but thicker and a bit longer:
The mascara was ok on the curl but as you can see from the side, there is some flopping.
The brush is fantastic, had a nice grip and was easy to use.
The mascara is great for lengthening.
It is buildable. The second time I used it I applied 3 coats and the result was quite striking.
Considering the fact it has tons of fibers it did not irritate (unlike Deja Vu Fiberwig – I only have to see a bottle and I can feel the fibers in my eyes)
This washes off with 40 degree water (luke warm water) – which is GREAT because my huge bugbear with Japanese mascaras is that they are TOO water tight and are impossible to take off without ripping out 50% of my lashes.
It makes the lashes flop a little.
Despite the flopping I still adore this mascara – one of my favourites that I have tried recently and it comes highly recommended. It can be found on eBay or on www.ichibankao.com.
