MASCARA OF THE WEEK: FAIRYDROPS' NEW AND IMPROVED T2 PLATINUM MASCARA


DISCLAIMER:  This was given to me for review.  I am not paid with cash for these reviews and my reviews are objective.
From the brand:
"Aya Yasuda, the founder and CEO of Fairydrops Mascara was an anchorwoman at the Major League Baseball on a local TV station in Los Angeles.  She always longed to have the big, photogenic eyes her co-workers seemed to possess.  She often wondered what it was specifically that caused the difference, especially on camera.  One day Aya realized it was the long, upward slopping eyelashes that some newscasters had.  From that day on, she started experimenting, cutting application brushes into all sorts of shapes and sizes, testing each brush to see which shape made her eyes look the biggest on TV.
After months of research and experimenting, the 3-teardrop wand was born.  The wand caught and lifted even the shortest eyelashes, giving her the big, photogenic eyes that she dreamed of for so long.  The results were remarkable, Aya knew she had to share the 3-teardrop wand with other women back in Japan.  She started her own company, AYA INC. in Tokyo.  Now Fairydrops Mascara is sold not only in Japan but also throughout Asia and in U.S. Sephora and is one of the most popular mascaras in the Asia region"

my review
you guys know i love fiber wigs right? and you guys know how i need fiber wigs hahaha.  i'm too lazy to to put on falsies so fiber wigs are my only way to even look i have lashes. so i always take advantage of fiber containing mascaras like these.
LIKES:
  • no weird scent
  • formula not too thick not too watery thin
  • applies evenly and smoothly even with the weird applicator brush
  • doesn't sting my eye
  • doesn't flake into my eye
  • doesn't melt or smear into my eye or the sides of my eye
  • is lasting
  • keeps the curl 
  • which means it's not heavy on my lashes
  • if applied well - the fibers do lengthen my lashes
  • if applied well - the fibers do volumize my lashes 
  • fibers do not fall off my lashes throughout the day
NEUTRAL - the price - the usual, it's a japanese product, anything japanese is expensive
DISLIKE: 
  • for the life of me i can't seem to make the wand/brush head to my advantage, so i do NOT like this brush type for me the best types of applicators for fiber wigs like the below: 
    or
    these kinds of comb applicators evenly distributes the fibers of the mascaras.  what happens to me with fairydrops' t2 platinum mascara brush head is that the fibers can sometimes go all over the place. so some fibers get applied diagonally or not aligned with my lashes.  but at least the fibers don't tend to stick IN to my eyes.
DO I RECOMMEND:
Certainly there are much cheaper mascaras, but fiber wigs can go a little pricier.  What I can say about this mascara is that albeit a fiber wig, it looks very natural which i really like.  where as the hello kitty and majolica majorca can look too fabricated, (yes, i mean look fake but not a false lash) specially if you already have long lashes.  So if you have the budget then I would advise you to try this mascara by fairydrops. ;-)

Would you say this mascara is better compared to others in making long voluminous lashes? Wanna try that out! The brush looks so unique and fancy :-O

hello Lindy:
if applied correctly it should volumize quite well since it is a fiber wig.
the packaging looks fancy, too, ;-)
thank you for visiting my blog ^_^

I still can't find the best fiberwig I've EVER tried! This looks nice enough, but I'm holding back on the Fairy Drops fad because they're a little expensive :(

Marge said...

ah well, for me the best fiberwig is still MM's lash expander frame plus,
fairydrops, a fad? hehehe maybe in Japan LOL, but my twitter friend, pinkiecharm, in the states likes fairydrops a great deal hehehe
