My birthday was last week and I got a couple of makeup items from my sweet friend. She knows me well :)
I got a MAC lipglass gift set and a mascara set she brought back from her Hong Kong trip.
I have not tried MAC lipglass for a long time. As I recall, their lip glosses are quite sticky. But these one are different formula and 3 out of the 4 are cremesheen lipglass and one is dazzlesheen.
They are sweet-scented and not sticky. Very smooth and creamy to apply. Only the dazzlesheen formula(far right) is a bit sticky but the shade is too pretty to pass.
I have heard my friend raved about this mascara for a while. It is by the brand Flamingo and apparently this is very popular in Asia. The set consists of a lash primer, a mascara and a lip gloss.
The top one is supposedly a primer which consists of fibers to make lashes fuller. The bottom one is the mascara which lengthens. My friend and I both have straight, stubborn Asian lashes which need lots of prep work to get curly lashes. I have seen her lashes transformed from short straight ones to long and full lashes which hold curls.
I have only used this combo a few times. I am not sure about the fiber primer which is full of white fluffy lint to me. Not sure if my bottle just dries up in the package or not. I guess the concept behind this is similar to Benefit Gimme Brow(fiber gel) to make lashes fuller. Fortunately the mascara quite agrees with my lashes. Even though it doesn't state it is waterproof, it does help my lashes lengthen and look fuller.
Have you tried any fiber mascara? I just find it tricky to apply and tiny fibers like to get into my eyes.
