Fairy Drops: Scandal or Not?

So, up until recently I've been pretty reliant on one brand when itcomes to Japanese fiber/tube mascaras. They're not an every day product for me--they're a funeral/very-warm-weather/sad movies type of mascara. At times, it can be a lower lash product as well.

When I started hearing the hype surrounding Fairy Drops Scandal Queen Mascara (longer, curlier, waterproof lashes), I figured it was time to test out a new fiber mascara. This one comes in a very pretty tube--shiny and metallic. I'm pretty sure it was the wow factor of the tube that pushed me to pick it reminds me of a design you'd find in old Las Vegas.

There are five essences contained in the formula: squalane (emollient), jojoba oil (balancing), panthenol (humectant), collagen (strength & elasticity), and sodium hyaluronate (hydration). The curved wand consists of three poofy bulbs, which are said to increase length and volume. The formula is quite wet--not overly so, but definitely has a moisturizing appeal. I've had a few issues with using the brush on my lower lashes--it's quite wide, so smudging can occur easily.

The verdict: It does a fine job lengthening, but the effect leans more to the natural end of things. When it comes to volume, I much prefer a mascara such as Lancome's Hypnose--even if it does risk a little rub-off under the lash line. If you have trouble with keeping a curl, this one may be a good pick..but you're using a lash curler anyway, right?

In other news, I've been having cravings for caramel frappuccino, boba tea and sushi. Is it the weather? This is another favorite creation from SushiSamba, which leads me to believe there ought to be at least one more SushiSamba holiday before baby arrives...

Are you a fan of Japanese mascaras? Which are you favorites?

I've never tried Japanese mascaras before... but that sushi roll looks delicious! x

fantastic said...

@rocaille: oh it is sooo delicious! i think i've eaten loads of them :)

Have you tried Chanel Inimitable Intense mascara yet? It's my new found favorite!

I always found the fiber mascaras a bit creepy lol.

fantastic said...

@dsk steph: hehehe..creepy? how so?!
Haven't tried Chanel Inimitable...yet another to add to my list!

I tend not to steer away from my reliable mascaras, plus I don't know where to get Japanese products here in Philly.

How is that brush set you got from Ulta awhile ago? I'm curious to see how they are in action.

fantastic said...

@kajal couture: which are your faves?
the brush set--pretty good (awesome value). i'm not too keen on the foundation brush--it's a little scratchy and i'd prefer it to be wider. But I will find another use for it. My favorite is the buffing brush and also the lip/concealer one. They have held up well through several washings and I've yet to see them shed a single hair.

Kajal Couture said...

Thanks, good to know!! My faves are Plushlash and MUFE Aqua Smoky Lash. Both seem to work really well for me.

Tina said...

Oh, very educational post!!!
Those tube/fiber mascaras always had me wondering - but I never knew where to look! Would love to try one, but I 'm all for the drama, so not sure this would suit me (either)...!

Mascara wise I've been playing it safe with my standard purchases: L'oreal Volume Collagene (the black one/Longoria ads) and Chanel Exceptionnel, those are my 2 favourites, although I've been trying a couple new ones (well, to me) too!
