Just in the nick of time, I was sent a mascara from VUE DE PULANG to test out. Since mascaras need to be thrown away and replaced every 3 months, it stands to reason that the L’Oreal mascara I opened last January should be discarded by now. Thank the heavens I have this to use as a replacement. But will it impress me? Read on to find out.
AN EYE CATCHING LOOK
Coil brush helps to apply mascara from the eyelash roots.
The tail comb brush evenly lengthesand creates a doll-like eyelashes!
Coat the mascara with an appropriate amount of contents, and gently apply to your eyelash.
The Eye Catching Mascara Long & Curl is in a sleek, gunmetal gray-colored plastic tube with a very skinny mascara wand. The brush on the end looks like a fine-toothed comb making it ideal for my lashes which are fine, always pointing straight down and practically immune to a lash curler — sometimes I just give up; it’s sad.
This is the first mascara I’ve used with this kind of wand. To be honest, I thought I would poke my eye out with it but eventually, I’ve come to appreciate it more. I can get into the roots of my lashes unlike other mascaras with thicker wands. The wand also makes it feel like I can push up my lashes into a curl and the fine teeth on it prevents individual lash hairs from clumping up with repeated brushing. The end effect is longer lashes with a slightly-curled, wispy look on me. The formula is able to withstand the heat and humidity of the Philippines. I can also guarantee that it’s waterproof and smudge-proof.
I find the results and experience very similar to the MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash. There are a couple of differences to them though. First of all, their wands mainly but the long wispy lashes they produce resemble each other closely. Second, the MAC mascara is not waterproof and can be taken off with an ordinary makeup remover. On the other hand, this mascara should be taken off with a oil-based makeup remover. Third, their prices — 4 years ago, the MAC mascara cost me Php 900 and I’m sure there has been a price increase for it. VUE DE PULANG however costs less when you get it at my Charis Store here.
If you’re looking for a mascara that will lengthen your lashes, then this will be a good option for you. Don’t be deterred by how little the differences are in my before-and-after photo above. In real life, my lashes have shown definite improvement in terms of curl and length once I have applied this on. Plus points too for a waterproof and smudge proof formula.
Has anyone tried this mascara before?
