I love Heroine cosmetics as much as the next girl and I have to say the Mascara Remover isn’t too bad a deal!
The sole purpose of purchasing this was to remove heavy duty Japanese mascara like Excel (read my review on Excel’s awesome mascara by clicking here), Beaute de Kose, and other brands.
I normally use Sephora brand eye makeup remover (if you have something better do let me know as I’m always on the look out for good eye makeup remover) and it does a great job of getting off anything I put on my eyes even MAC liquidlast! However, it has a bit of a problem removing Japanese mascara especially heavier inky ones (if you use Japanese mascara you know the intense texture).
The Sephora remover does a pretty good job of getting it off but after my entire face is cleaned up I’m still noticing my eyelashes are a bit tacky feeling or shedding fibers (if I used a fiber mascara) which means it hasn’t gotten everything!
In comes to play Heroine’s Mascara Remover. I firgure after using the Sephora remover and rinsing up my entire face I could use the Heroine as a way of coating off any left over gunk that the other remover left behind.
It appears that it does an ok job of it. Today I used KATE Primer and KATE Gel Mascara. KATE’s mascara isn’t particularly difficult to remove but since I used the Primer first it thickens the mascara some and gives me a tiny bit of a problem removing it completely.
I swiped some of the Heroine Mascara Remover over my lashes after my entire face was clean (prior to moisturizing). Afterward I wiped each last with a cotton pad. Nothing was on the pad however my lashes lost that “hard” feeling I get when mascara is still on plus my lashes felt soft and conditioned.
I’m not sure how well this will work with heavier mascaras but I’m curious to find out. All in all it’ll only set you back about 882 yen ($8 bucks USD) so it couldn’t hurt to try it!
The general idea of using this as your primary mascara remover would be nuts and I’m not entirely sure that’s what they expect (I sure hope not) but using it in conjunction with your regular remover you should see ok results!
So far I give a tentative ok rating and when I use it again, as I said before, with a heavier mascara maybe it’ll be a glowing review!
What did you think after using it or similar products like it?

Stila’s Spring Collection is in the air! The collection includes one blush duo and three eyeshadow trios. All are repromotes aside from a new shade in one of the eyeshadow trios. To be honest all the trios look brand new to my eye especially gold glow.
It’s a very nice collection but not prominent on my Spring Collection Wish List!
Cheek Duo in Pink Glow
Eyeshadow Trio in Gold Glow
Eyeshadow Trio in Bronze Glow
Eyeshadow Trio in Champagne Glow (Newest Shade)
Slightly scary one! My lips are major chapped, my eyes are puffy because I’m bloody knackered, and I just have rather weird look on my face! But overall I do like the simplicity of the gold and pink colors!

Lola Blush in Mistress (My absolutely fav blush of the moment!)

I’m not particularly a big fan of Pink Sugar.
Yes, you read that right.
I hear the cries of rage right now.
SO many of my friends are addicted to Pink Sugar as if it were crack. Sadly, it does absolutely nothing for me. I love sweet, I love sugary. However, I don’t love Pink Sugar. It’s revolting to my nose. Sorry for those who love it. It’s just not on my love list.
However, I do know it has a quite a cult following. So here’s a Steal and a Deal for fans of Pink Sugar!
Head on over to QVC and enter item number A15376 to nab you a duo of Pink Sugar Hair Perfume Sprays!
I adore hair perfume sprays, too bad it’s Pink Sugar scented!
These are $22.50 for two 3.38oz bottles of the spray! I’ve never seen this offered elsewhere so it could be exclusive to QVC!
I’m really lemming Kiss’s Chocolatier Collection rather badly! The lipglosses aren’t very me but I must say both look really yummie!
What sells me most about the entire collection is the model! She looks quite like a doll using the palette and I’m wondering if I can achieve the same wide eye, innocent look using the quad in the same way!
It’s really brightened up her eyes in a simple yet elegant way!
I own quite a few Kiss cosmetics and I find that they make quite a nice high quality cosmetic so I’m thinking I might have to get the quad at least and maybe one of the glosses!
