Product Review: Clarins Wonder Perfect Mascara

If Clarins keeps this up, I may just switch all my makeup products to Clarins! The new Wonder Perfect Mascara, available in 3 shades, is just that – it is wonderful and perfect.

Mascara Showdown: Diorshow Black Out v. Lancome Hypnose

Product Review: Clarins Double Fix’ Mascara

Because my eyes are so sensitive, I usually don’t wear waterproof mascaras because they always dry out my eyes for some reason. And because mascaras, once opened, only last 3 months due to contamination concerns, I don’t want to shell out extra money on a waterproof mascaras for occasional uses.

At first, when I tried it on, I was concerned that it wasn’t coating enough, since the product is colorless and very thin. But after I put a thin coat on, I noticed that this is really heavy duty stuff, and provides a very lasting waterproof film over my Lancome Hypnose that did not melt or dissolve one bit under water, even in my shower (I tested it in my shower before using it outside).
