Product Review : MIXIU FIBRE MASCARA

i bought this months ago since it kept on showing up on my Instagram timeline. that time, i wasn't even looking for another mascara but i just thought, why don't i give it a try?

basically this Mixiu Fibre Mascara has two brushes- Magic Extend to curl the upper lashes and Magic Lush, a smaller brush to coat the bottom lashes. this mascara is being talked about for its ability to give fuller and longer lashes in a matter of seconds



my thoughts:

to be honest, the first time i tried this product on my lashes, i actually hated it because it tends to clump, and the lash comb doesn't work to remove the excess. plus, it gets harder to work with once it's dried, and lemme tell ya, the mascara dries fassttt, even faster than Mr Krabs's reaction when he saw someone touching his money.

but i decided to give this baby another chance, and i'm so, so grateful that i didn't throw it away after the first bad impression it gave me. i found out that i've been using it the wrong way, which was why i couldn't get the best of this mascara. if you're aiming for thicker lashes, hold the wand at a horizontal angle, or turn it vertically for a more natural finish. if you coat your lashes evenly, it will weigh down the tips of the hairs, causing your lashes to straighten out after a few minutes. the best way to hold the curl is to apply a thicker coat of mascara at the root of your lashes and a lighter one toward the ends. this can be achieved by wiggling the wand back and forth at the base, and then lightly combing through to the tips. as for the clumping issue, you can simply prevent that by wiping off the excess on a tissue before coating it on your lashes. i believe these tips are applicable to not only fibre mascaras, but simply all mascaras in general.

Mixiu Mascara really does what it claims to do. it helps to lengthen and thicken my lashes. i love how it intensifies my regular black lashes shade. another thing that i like about this mascara is that it doesn't leave a stain when i wash it off. it can easily be removed with water and doesn't smudge. i personally love to play around with different mascara from different brand, but i found that Mixiu Mascara deserves to be at the top 3 of my list.



my lashes on the left-hand side is coated with a layer of Mixiu Fibre Mascara. i usually don't go crazy with it, i don't put layers after layers because i prefer them looking as natural as possible. so.. yeah, this is pretty much my everyday eye-look. one coat of mascara and i'm ready to go!

i believe that Mixiu Mascara can't be found in regular local stores. if you want to give it a try, then i would recommend you to buy from the same seller that i bought this from (Instagram: @everdeenss). the current price is RM40 including postage (pretty cheap, i would say. same price range as from the drugstores)

so that's it for now. i hope this post would be helpful. til next time. xx
