Even though I set up this blog as a beauty and skincare blog, I’ve never actually talked about makeup items here before. That’s because there are so many fantastic blogs out there that really focus on makeup with their beautiful colour swatches and makeup looks. I just do not think that my makeup skills are comparable so I do feel a bit self-conscious talking about makeup. I wear makeup everyday but my makeup is limited to loose powder, eyeliner, some basic eye shadow, mascara, blusher and lip stick. I hardly use highlighters or contouring powders and I’ve never done any brow makeup on my own (not counting my bridal makeup!).
However, I do love my mascaras and have bought and tried numerous brands and formulations before settling on the Heroine Make Long & Curl Super Waterproof Mascara. Since then, I’ve hardly bought any other brands of mascara because it works so incredibly well for me and my needs. As per normal, ingredients for the product are below:
How does the Heroine Make Long & Curl Super Waterproof Mascara fare?
I really love this mascara as it is super lengthening, quite volumising and is an intense black colour. You can’t really compare its effects to eyelash extensions or fake eyelashes, however I do think that it’s one of the best drugstore mascaras that you can buy. In my opinion, it rivals or even surpasses some mascaras in the departmental store brands. What I especially love about this mascara is that it is truly super waterproof! In fact, you definitely need a dedicated waterproof eye makeup remover (those bi-phase types) for this if you don’t want to be rubbing your eye area super hard to remove this mascara. I have oily eye lids so I need to wear waterproof mascara if I don’t want to look like a raccoon at the end of the day. Many mascaras claimed to be waterproof but did not meet the cut when I tried them. It had always bothered me until I used this product. It is recommended that you replace your mascara every 3 to 4 months and I love that the price of this product allows me to do that without burning a big hole in my pocket. There are definitely some mascaras in the departmental store brand (such as the Diorshow or Lancome mascaras which I love!) which are better than this product. But for its price and performance, I truly believe that this mascara provides you with great value for money!
Where can you find it?
