FairyDrops Mascara Review

I’m able to bring you this review thanks to the lovely Taryn who gifted me with this mascara! Thanks Taryn icon smile (Click here to read more about the lovely parcel Taryn sent my way!).

One thing that I am truly obsessive and passionate about is Japanese mascara. I. Love. Japanese. Mascara.

I find Japanese mascara does exactly what I hope for and more. It extends, deepens, thickens, lengthens, and just makes my lashes perfect in all ways! I haven’t met a brand I don’t love! Where as I’ve spent tons of cash on mascara I can get right here in the US I never found one as good as some of the cheapest brands I can get out of Japan! That being said onto the awesome review of Fariy Drops Mascara!

Picture+581

Fairy Drops is indeed a unique brand of mascara! You MIGHT be wondering what’s so special about Fairy Drops well if you look at the picture below you’ll see the really interesting and unique wand for this mascara!

Picture+583

The wand is the magic in this mascara! Basically it’s made up of three small clumps of brushes. Each brush not only lengthens and thickens your lashes but also separates your lashes so you aren’t dealing with a bit clumpy mess of product! It actually creates an illusion of not wearing mascara at all. I’ve tried many great mascaras that work a treat but none do such a fab job of separating my lashes so well! I normally have to separate my own lashes with a comb after applying but with this I don’t need to! The brush does all the work for me!

Not only does it do a superior job of separating my lashes but it also has a knack for catching every single lash! I normally struggle a bit with my inner lashes but this catches them all with one swipe!

Picture+582

The texture, like all Japanese Mascaras, is very thick but the difference with this one is it appears a bit on the light side as well! If you’re lashes are a bit sensitive I think you’re safe using this as it feels like the formula is very gentle on my eyes and my lashes are not feeling “hard” for lack of a better word. I feel like I’m not wearing mascara at all!

Removal was very easy with minimal rubbing! I swiped each eye twice with a cotton pad and all the mascara came off perfectly. My lashes are thick and strong however I feel comfortable saying this would be a good mascara for those with weaker lashes or thin ones as it didn’t break off any of my lashes during removal. The staying power is great as I put this on around 6:30 in the morning yesterday and I had no fading, flaking, or raccoon eyes so it’s definately standing up to all my tests for long wearing!

Overall, it’s an amazing little product that I’m totally in lust with at the moment!

Fairy Drops Mascara is most definately Muse Approved for purchase!

You can get yours from JPmon!

Thanks again to Taryn icon smile

Benefit Thrrrob Review

I got my Benefit Thrrob Powder ages ago and I’m finally reviewing it for you! YAY! Click here to read my original post about Benefit Thrrob Powder.

Picture+560

I have to give this powder a big Muse approval for purchase as I’m in love with it at the moment!

At first glance I was pretty disappointed for a few reasons. First of all it looks all too similar to the other love of my life, Dandelion, however I soon find out they are quite a deal different from one another. The second reason I was feeling disappointed was the powder was quite sheer when I first opened the box. Huge sighs of grief left my lips when I seen that the powder wasn’t as vibrantly pink as I had hoped!

Picture+561

When I seen this on the site I thought for sure this was the answer to my prayers for beautifully flushed cheeks but upon seeing the powder I thought for sure it was another big disappointment from Benefit! However, I take back all my negative thoughts after using it!

The powder is a beautiful silky texture with a touch of shimmer but as I said it’s a bit on the sheer side when you’re just glancing at it! However, after applying it to my cheeks I was delighted that the shade is deeper on, very beautiful, and natural! I actually tried it sans foundation and I found it gave me a lovely little glow of pink that was truly perfect!

If you’re in love with natural looking powders and blushes this would be something you’ll want! A little foundation, a little gloss, and some of this will give you a truly fresh, glowing look!

Picture+562

If you’re scared of shimmers, glitters, or sparkle you can rest easy as the shimmer in this is very subtle and barely noticeable!

First thing I did when I got this was take out my Dandelion and do the comparisons. I have to say that I do get almost the same look from Dandelion however with Thrrob I noticed that the color is slightly deeper and a bit more pink where as Dandelion is pink yet not as deep. I normally apply Dandelion over my blush and let it work it’s magic however I rarely wear it alone where as Thrrob can be used both under or without blush! Although Dandelion can certainly be used on it’s own I found that Thrrob gives a much more brighter look rather! I’m not particularly certain that Thrrob is anymore pigmented then Dandelion however it is a bit more vibrant but not overly so!

Thrrob and Dandelion
Picture+564

Where as Dandelion is a soft pale peachy pink, Thrrob is more of a true pink. Thrrob goes on as a reddish pink to me so you’re getting that “just out of the cold” look where as Dandelion you get more of a soft, highlighted glow.

Thrrob is $28 USD and available now directly from Sephora or Benefit Cosmetics.

Overall, I can definately give this a go ahead for purchase! I’m really loving it at the moment!

Benefit finally got it right this time and I’m happy to see a product I’m loving by them as it’s been ages since I purchased an item that I wasn’t a tad disappointed with!

Good job Benefit!

Benefit Thrrob is most definately Muse Approved for purchase!
