Firm Favourites #4 | Kiss Me Heroine Make Mascara

Hi there!  Excuse me for praising about discontinued products again!  

Heroine Make is made by Isehan, and these mascaras have been repackaged/renamed last year, into prettier bright pink tubes (pictured here).  Good news is, I still have back-ups of these, and I figure, it will be a loss (to the blog community? lol) if I don't write about them.  So here we are, talking about these no-long-available well-loved Japanese mascaras!

Price and Packaging

Each costs about HK$ 60 (7-8US).  Comes in a burgundy plastic tube, sleek and handy.  The wand for Volume and Curl is thinner in the centre, like a bone shape.  Long and Curl has a more traditional type of wand, but curved slightly.

Before and After

In the picture above:
Lashes on both sides are curled.  Only the left hand side has been coated with 1 layer of Long and Curl.

In the picture below:
Left eye is still the same - only 1 coat of Long and Curl; while the right eye has 1 coat of Long and Curl and 1 coat of Volume and Curl on.


The photos speak all, basically these give me lashes.  I do not have to layer one over the other to achieve the effects I desire.  However, this way it seems to deliver the fullest, craziest lashes - which I adore.

The formula lasts all day.  No smudge, no flakes, no falling straight no matter how long your day is.  However, industrial grade water-proof eye make-up removers are required to take these off.  Normal cleansing oil, wipes or micellar water - Bioderma, e.g. - won't take these black coatings off.

Used individually, both holds my curl amazingly.  Long and Curl is the one I prefer because it adds more length.  It has micro/mini fibres in.  Volume and Curl I feel clumps up more easily, but is more thickening and darkening.  When I have the mood, of course, I tend to layer them one over the other.  Sometimes this over that, sometimes vice versa; both ways my lashes look amazing.

Rating: HURRAY.  Holy Grail status.  I sincerely hope the newer generation with pink tubes will work for my lashes.  Otherwise my lashes will be very sad for a very long time...

  1. I love your FOTDs! Your one of the few beauty bloggers I can relate to because of your eyes. :D I have the basic Chinese problem, monolid. Sigh. :P

    1. Thank you Jacobin :) I will do more FOTD if time allows! You will be amazed how many ugly pictures I have to eliminate when I do FOTD... the lighting, angle, my facial expression, all seem to f-up whenever i pose for FOTDs LOL
      Thanks for liking my posts :)

  2. love your reviews!! Gosh it reminded me how terrible i am with mascaras! I find them too time consuming and hassle to apply everyday LOL!

    1. Mascara is one of the first thing I started out with make up, probably even before lipgloss. My eyes are tiny and lips are relatively big. So without mascara, my eyes are nearly invisible XD
      Thanks for liking my review! That makes me very happy~~~
