In just about all my looks, the mascara I've used consistently is FAIRYDROPS Scandal Queen. It was also mentioned in my review of Benefit's They're REAL! mascara. It's my Holy Grail (HG) mascara! I also recently bought another cutesy FAIRYDROPS mascara. How about some background on my favorite mascara?
FAIRYDROPS wasn't a brand I knew. At all. Even though I do browse eBay for my Japanese and Korean cosmetic fix, I hadn't seen it before. While browsing Sephora.com one day, I saw this luxurious-looking gold tube with pretty red designs on it. I was pretty smitten with the tube and the brush intrigued me! It was a fiber mascara, something that was a bit of a new concept for me. I then went in search of reviews, relying on the positive aspects. When I got the $24+ for it (Sephora really gouged me on the price), I bought it. I was so excited to get it! I fumbled with the brush, since I had never seen a brush like it. A short tutorial later, I was using it with confidence. WELL, HELLO THERE LASHES! Instant love-fest. Quite sad this is available from Sephora anymore; I'll have to investigate the other formulas. (Can someone tell me what "film type" mascara is?)

If you want to try this particular mascara, you'll be forced to buy it from Amazon or another online retailer; however, you can find FAIRYDROPS' other mascaras on Sasa, Pretty & Cute and other places. At the moment, Pretty & Cute only has the Volume Burst (Waterproof) in the pink tube but FAIRYDROPS has so many mascaras! I intend to try more of their mascaras (like the regular one, if there's such a creature, or any other FAIRYDROPS. I ask again, can someone tell me what a "film type" mascara is?)
ALSO ~ I ordered the limited edition HbG x FAIRYDROPS mascaras. They offer pink and brown on Pretty & Cute at $17, which goes up to about $20 with shipping (assuming you pick their basic shipping). They DO offer international shipping if you aren't able to get Asian beauty products where you live, because I know I have a lot of international readers. Since I made an account, I got a coupon code for signing up! You can save some money by signing up before making your order and they have nice benefits with their points program.
I sound like a sales person now, don't I? I admit, I might sign on to their affiliate program! I like the selection a lot! In their program, I get compensated when I hit $100 through my links with a "love package." Very tempting...
PS: Why have I not updated the blog? Because the kittens have been underfoot all the time, and one was swatting my mascara when I was trying to take photos, it's made it really difficult. My usual set-up wasn't set up when I was ready to do pictures. I have two reviews waiting, so hope against hope that I can actually manage to get not-completely-blurry photos.
