Random Review: Mascara + Brow Gels

One day. It was late. I was trapped somewhere. I have been bare-faced for whole day.  Make up bag calls my name.  Hence this silly + not too organised post.

Comparison/ Review

 Mio piccolo eyebrow mascara 
Colour: LB (= light brown)

This is a warm brown with gold shimmer running through, really changes brow colour to golden shade but doesn't give a 'shape' to the brows.  The wand is a big big and not the easiest to use.  Texture is a bit runny and thin.  Colour matches my dyed hair well. **Rating: B+

 フォーミィForme Volume Down Eyebrow Mascara (discontinued)
Colour: 01

A very soft neutral brown.  Good to match many different shades of brown hair.  It gives some volume to the brows so you can skip shading them in.  The brush is small and very convenient to use.  **Rating: A

Maybelline the Colossal Volum' Express Waterproof (UK version)

Nice product, doesn't weigh down my lashes, colour is good dark black, gives so much length, some volume and product doesn't dry up in the tube too soon.  I like the fatty wand/brush and the bright neon yellow bottle - easy to find in my crowded make up bag.  Love this much better than the Covergirl Lash Blast! **Rating: A-

Eyeko Big Eyes Mascara (discontinued)

I guess the repackaged "skinny brush" might be the same as this.  One thin coat it gives me length and tiny big of volume.  2nd coat - no matter how thin or thick - it weighs down my lashes and destroys my curl.  Same disappointing when I first opened it and now - after a few months of drying up in the tube.  **Rating: D
