Product Empties #22

This was prepared months ago but I had PR reviews lined up and that’s why it’s been so long for this post to go up. But here’s my first empties of the year!

This is the Silkygirl Long-Wearing Eyeliner in 01 Black Black. It is a retractable eyeliner pencil with 0.28 grams or about 0.01 oz of product. It was a preloved item that was given to me and was drier formula which tugged on the skin when used on the eye. I used it on my fellow actors for stage performance for drawing on moustache and I would sometimes just dispense some product on my hand and use a brush to smudge out liner. It costs MYR 19.50 and safe to say I am not going to purchase it.

Yes, this is a whole bottle of product. Although I never opened it, it sat on the shelf for a bit too long and the oil spoiled. *cue wailing and crying*. Obviously there’s little use for this, but thank God this wasn’t a full sized one. I think I paid MYR45 for it. Sadly I can’t give my views on it. *cue second wave of crying and wailing*

Catrice All Round Mascara (Waterproof) Review

Catrice products are available exclusively at Guardian and are extremely affordable. Not dark skin friendly in terms of complexion products but where other products are concerned, there are winners.

This is the Catrice All Round Mascara; waterproof.

The product.

Description on the side.

Product info.

Wand; very standard natural bristle wand with a tapered end.

Description: Waterproof mascara that comes in 12 ml or 0.4 fl. oz. of product. Also comes in non waterproof version (purple tube). Code; 010 Blackest Black.

Price: MYR 18.90

Where to buy: Guardian pharmacy

Lash swatch.

Bare lashes.

One coat.

Two coats.

Pros:

Lengthens and adds dramatic volume.

Nice separation.

Minimal clumps (this comes with a con, read further).

No fallout (this comes with a con, read further)

Pretty good at curling and the curls hold.

No smudging.

 

Cons

The formula drastically changes as it dries out and it worsens (referring to the pros above);

  • As the formula dries out it becomes clumpy (the swatches bear evidence as my second coat picture shows a little bit of clumping).
  • When the formula dries out there also seems to be fallout.

The size of the wand makes it a little hard to work with.

 

Rating:

8.3/10

I am giving it a high rating because the mascara blew my mind when I initially tried it out. This would have gotten a rating above 9 if the formula didn’t change as it dried out. But hey, for a MYR 20 mascara, 3 to 4 months use is more than enough although I kept using it until the 8th month mark! 😛
