I’d heard some good things about Mavala’s mascara, so the next time I was going by a Sasa store, I popped in and picked one up in Black. It comes in a rather large bottle, with a slim long silver cap. For now I’ve only ever seen it at Sasa stores.
What I liked first off about this mascara is its brush. Its a curved brush but I’m a novice with mascara, so I wasn’t quite sure how to use it. That’s not what I like about it. What I like is that the brush head is small and bristles on the brush are very small. I have sparse, short lashes, so this was great for me, as it could grab onto each lash to coat it with the mascara.
Its supposed to be enriched with protein to help protect your lashes from breaking. I found that it did make my lashes look longer and enhanced my eyes.
However, the bad news is that despite its claims of being waterproof, it smudged on me. I don’t quite understand why it smudged. I did not get my eyes wet at all the whole day, yet towards the end of the day, I found that the bottom lid was dark. As the mascara is the only new thing I’ve added into my routine, it had to be it. I even tested it on a few days just to be sure, but after my colleague repeatedly warned me of my mascara running and of me looking like a panda, I’ve given up on it. However, whatever is left on my lashes can be hard to remove with my eye makeup remover. So its a bit of a contradiction there.
Mavala mascaras retail for about RM27 or so at Sasa stores. They have lots of colours available, if you like colour on your lashes. So far, only Lancome Flextencils is working best for me!
Pros: Small curved brush is great for short lashes, large tube
Cons: Ran on me despite it being waterproof
