Silkygirl Big Eye Collagen Waterproof Mascara

This product’s name is a definite misnomer.

 

 

To start with, it is not waterproof.

The website also claims that it is smudge-proof… 

…but I can assure you that it is not.


Evidence:

 


Hmmm yeah I used a photo editor to minimise the redness of the pimples you can faintly see there. So it doesn’t distract you from my pretty eyes~ 

This was done with cold water, so you can’t say that it was the warm water that did it.

I didn’t take a swatch for the smudge-proof claim, but I can assure you that it smudges. I had a hard time trying to cover up my mascara smudge in school.


But please don’t think that this product is a no-go– in fact, this is my favourite mascara yet because the bristles are so hard and fine, it creates wonderful natural-looking lashes.


I tried it in Guardian and fell in love with it!

I just HAD to get it right away… and I did!


This mascara layers really well.

One coat is good for really subtle lashes, like for school, two coats for a more obvious look, and three coats for a really dramatic pop! But usually my lashes start to clump by three coats and I have to use the brush to guide it downwards to ease out the clumping… then the mascara kinda loses its function of making my lashes go upwards.

 

 

Starts clumping after 3 coats~

 

See the difference in length!!



Actually, my lashes already curl up naturally so some mascaras are too heavy and end up drooping lower. Weird huh? And I have a thin extra layer of eyelashes on top of my main ones, like Elizabeth Taylor.

She was sooooo pretty~


Hopefully it’s not a sign that I have the same weird mutation as her that caused her heart problems too. I actually googled ‘double layer eyelashes’ and I think she’s the only one! How cool is that?

She lived such a sad life though… I don’t want my life to be like that! Pretty and desired by so many but no stable love in her life

Back to the point 

Anyway, I love this mascara because it is so easy to use!

Anyway, you don’t HAVE to have a waterproof or smudge-proof one, right?


I just wish the brush could be designed in a more curved shape for easier application, like the Maybelline one I’ll be reviewing later on ^^ I love that brush because it is a ‘cat-eyes brush’ and is extremely suitable for people with eyes like mine!


It’s just made for me, hahaha~


*****************************************************************************

  1. Hi, thanks for the review. I used a few Silkygirl mascara types before. They all smudges. Worst of all, the waterproof ones aren’t waterproof! Once I got caught in the rain and the masara fell off in clumps. It was so embarrassing! Worst part was it stuck to my eye area and I had so much difficulty getting the smudges off using water at office. 😦

    • That was the same problem I found! I’ve had more luck with the Maybelline ones- I’m currently using the Rocket one after using that cat-eyes one, and sometimes I use the Bourjois Kohl mascara because I really like the brush. I recommend using the Majolica Majorca mascara base because it reduces smudging and you get really long lashes! It’s pretty pricey but you can find some good deals on Carousell.
