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~


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

Loves: Easy and clean application, doesn’t clump easily

Rating8.5/10…. I really love this mascara.

HELP!!! Miniskirt Issues

Agonising over whether I should make the purchase.


4.90 bucks only, but my parents would probably kill me for this hahaha.

And I’m kinda broke already… I need to save up some more money for the five bottles of O.P.I I’m eyeing!!


Lookie here!!

Tell me if it’s worth it :/

I’m deliberating between 5 (navy blue), 6 (boring but practical black), and 8 (wine red)

 

 

I Cut, My Hair

I cut my hair.

(a lot right??)

Yes, I cut my own hair.

I dislike people messing around with my hair and giving me a style that I don’t want.

I usually layer it into three layers, and the longest layer is in the middle and the portion of hair nearer my ears are shorter.

Like so.

 

 My hair is sometimes annoying, unkempt and won’t be tamed by a comb.

It’s a lot better now that I use conditioner regularly, but the curls are still there, and they’ve petered out to waves!

I think curly hair isn’t too bad after all ^^

And in this shot, I look so pale! (below)

Ultimate favourite picture of the lot 😀

Well… I guess if you want curls like this you can tie your hair into two buns like what my friend does, so the harder you twist it will increase the intensity of the curls.

She told me she saw it on Xiaxue’s blog somewhere, so maybe you can look for it yourself?

*blessed with natural curls hohoho*
