"Do You Normally Wear Mascara?"

Thank you to my boyfriend for inspiring the title of this post, a quote from him one morning after I'd freshly coated my lashes in the Fairdrops Scandal Queen Mascara, and I'd say this is proof that the time spent trying to track down the notoriously difficult Fairydrops was well worth it - right? (shout out to the Cult Beauty waiting list) I don't usually give in to 'hypes', or invest a huge bucks in a beauty product that is not a foundation (because with oily/combination skin, sometimes money needs to be spent) but I'm yet to find a mascara that hits the spot and isn't a pain in the arse to remove. After hearing Anna from ViviannaDoesMakeup rave about this product, and the girl knows her mascaras, I thought I'd give it a whirl. With the promise of thicker and longer lashes that hold a curl, I was on board with this product before it even came through my letter box.

First thoughts? I think this product is awesome. The packaging is an absolute winner and this product has kept to all of it's promises - adding a good ol' curl and then some! Fairydrops was created by Aya Yasude after she found herself cutting away at her own wands to create the perfect shape. Unlike any other brush I've used, there are 3 spherical balls along a curved wand with tiny fibres that run the length of it, they do the job of making you look like you have more lashes than you do - genius. The curve pushes things upwards in the right direction, whilst working into both corners of the eye to fill things out. As for the coat? I find one for the day does the job, but it can definitely be layered upHowever, what I will say is that after application I can sometimes feel like I have something in my eye? This may be a pesky fibre off the brush - who knows, as I can never actually spot anything on closer eye inspection - but I just blink it off and all is well. When it comes down to the removal, don't be afraid of the word 'waterproof' - there are no issues to be found here! 

So, to sum up, all the rumours you heard were true - this beauty is bloody brilliant. 

Have you managed to get your hands on a tube?

  1. I absolutely adore the packaging of this! I'm so fussy when it comes to mascara's though :P Does this have a plastic brush or a fibre brush? :)
