Review : Etude House Dual Show Long Lash Mascara


Finding the right mascara for me is not easy, believe me. I’ve tried Dollywink Volume Mascara and was not impressed almost at all! I hate the drying feeling it gives me. Ugh.

So I was on a browsing one day, searching for great mascara. I browsed through Etude House mascaras, and the Volumecara one really tempted me. The finish of the mascara somehow looks very dry, and I hate daaat -_- My heart finally chose this, not popular mascara from Etude House, which slightly is more expensive than their new Volumecara.


Dual Show Long Mascara! Wow, have you ever heard about this product? Nay? Me neither! I doubt it at first because the name sounds so unfamiliar la, but well sometimes we gotta take the risk and go for it!



Comes with a pink box, the product packaging itself is in black and pink. Typical of Etude House, and one word : CUTE! Korean products never fail to win my heart and eyes with their cuteness \(*O*)/


Product Description :
Dual Show Long Mascara creates thick, long, and lustrous lash look to highlight depth, and intensity of the eyes.




This mascara is dual ended. The pointy end one is the fiber while the rounded end one is the mascara. The fiber and mascara is separated, WOW? So how do they work together?

How to use :
1.       Use the main mascara by applying it on your lashes.
2.       Apply the dry fibers only at the end of your natural lashes.
3.       Re-apply the mascara over fiber coated lashes, coating from the roots to the tips
4.       Repeat process to extend length and get volume lashes.

Okay, now let’s try it, shall we? Here’s opened and closed eyes pictures of mine.




This is the first step! 


Second, I applied the dry fibers at the end of my lashes.  You cannot see it because it’s white la~

Reapplying the mascara, and add more fiber to the end of my lashes. Notice the difference between my bare lashes and these coated lashes? Nope? Me neither… It’s just slightly darker and longer, just a little bit.


the right one is bare lashes whilst the left one is coated lashes


HEARTS
            DOES NOT SMUDGE. Rub it hard and it does not leave even a tiny flake!
            EASY TO APPLY YET EASY TO REMOVE.
            MAKES YOUR LASHES APPEAR LONGER.
            DOESN’T FEEL SO HEAVY ON EYES. Some mascaras do, but this one is not!

CROSSES
            ˟ QUITE EXPENSIVE! It’s IDR 188.000 at Chic. Gee.
˟ NOT WATERPROOF.
            ˟ THE FIBERS EASILY FALL OFF.
            ˟ CONTAINS ALCOHOL (Mascara). It can irritate those with sensitive eyes…
            ˟ THE FORMULA SOMEHOW MAKES MY LASHES FALL OFF!!!


RATE
3.5/10


REPURCHASE?
DEFINITELY NO! Get Majolica Majorca or Benefit BadGal instead darling.


CONCLUSION
Sorry to say, but this product is a BIG NO for me. The only thing that impresses me is this mascara doesn’t feel heavy on eyes. And it’s super-duper smudgeproof! I rubbed my eyes very hard back there and it still stayed beautifully. Unfortunately, just a little amount of water could ruin your WHOLE gorgeous look because the mascara would wash off and mess everywhere.  And the fibers? Since they’re dry fibers, they don’t tend to stick properly on the lashes instead of very likely to get inside of your eyes. Beware! THIS IS A MESS! With how much this product costs you, I suggest you to buy Majolica Majorca Lash Expander instead because this product, is not, worth that much.

***

Nah this product is a total loss for me. Really! It is worse than my previous Dollywink mascara. Gee. I regret that I spent so much for this product and not buying Majolica Majorca mascara instead. I will surely not repurchase!


(P.S.: My giveaway is just few days away! I’m still waiting for the giveaway prizes that are on their way to my home. Pssssst, tell me what you want too because there will be a secret box inside, containing the product that you want long long!)

    1. ...because the fibers tend to fall out which will end up irritating our eyes (;A; )

  2. I'm not a fan of mascaras with fibre that you have to apply either! It's so messy, especially if they're black! It looks like your tore up your lashes and sprinkled them all over your cheeks...

      *too much stressing*
      waktu cari reviewnya kok pada nggak ada, aku kira ini produk baru. tp kok lebih santer si volumecara? nekat beli tetepan.. eh ternyata gak worth banget, the only thing yang aku suka cuma si mascara gampang di bersihin. smudgeproof bgt juga!
