Product Reviews: dejavu Lash Knockout Volume Film Mascara (Dynamite Black) & Lasting fine smooth eyeliner

dejavu Lash Knockout Volume Film Mascara with bonus Lasting fine smooth eyeliner, HK$105/US$15.5 at

I haven’t had much luck trying new mascaras lately, and after hearing so many rave reviews about dejavu, I finally gave it a try.

I bought dejavu Lash Knockout Volume Film Mascara from for HK$105/US$15.5. This is supposedly HG (holy grail) for a lot of beauty junkies so I had high expectations for it. My own HG mascara of all time belongs to Lancome’s Hypnose, but 1) Lancome tests on animals and 2) it cost CAD$31 which is twice as expensive as dejavu (by imju). Lately, with the dwindling revenue coming from I must admit the price tag is of major concern. Anyway, for US$15.5, a potentially a holy grail mascara, why not?

If you haven’t tried dejavu mascaras yet, these are fibre mascaras and can add dramatic lengths and volume to your eyelashes. This promises to volumize and thicken lashes by 2.4 times, plus long wear and easy removal (by pressure and warm water). I wasn’t too excited about the last part – since my Clinique mascara came off pretty easily from just swimming in a heated swimming pool – but I had faith in the Japanese brands.

Product description:

Fiberwig* is the top-selling mascara in Japan – beating the competition with remarkable, “false eyelash-like” results. What it is formulated to do:Engineered to create the perfect lashes with twice the amount of micro-fine interconnecting fibers, the instant drying formula creates a long lasting film coat around your natural lashes. Fiberwig imparts a perfect, smudge-proof maximum lash extension effect with a water-resistant formula that’s easy to remove with warm water, without risking damaging or losing your natural lashes.What else you need to know:A jet-black fiber film coats the surface of each lash with long-lasting, clump-free, lash lengthening color that’s resistant to tears, sweat, and oil.

And…it did not disappoint! I was very impressed that with just one coat, my lashes already looked very va-va-voom! Honestly, even one coat is enough, but just out of habit, I do two (one if I don’t have time). You don’t have to wait for it to dry between coats, by the way. The buildup is done by applying a second coat before the first one dries.

It doesn’t clump, and most of all, it has great endurance. I have been using this for nearly 2 months and yet, did not once experience any flaking, or smudging. I put this on at 7am and it stays exactly the same until I take it off close to midnight. It also lasts through some major humidity and medium drizzle.

So, this is now my HG mascara!

My package of dejavu mascara also came with a bonus Lasting fine smooth. The eyeliner comes in a click pen form – very easy to use and goes on smoothly. It claims to stay put for 24 hours and it lasts all day with virtually no smearing, fading or smudging too.

If you haven’t tried dejavu, now it’s the time! 🙂 Highly recommended and I will definitely repurchase!
