Patented in Japan, Exclusive in the US: Fairydrops Scandal Queen Mascara

Fairydrops Scandal Queen Mascara
My crazy work schedule consists of a full-time day job that requires me to get up at 3am and a part-time night job that doesn't get me home and into bed until after 10pm. With an insane schedule like that, who has time to fuss with makeup throughout the day? I have to be sure that whatever makeup I put on in the morning is going to withstand my entire, busy workday and night.

I came into the office one morning to find a brand new tube of Fairydrops Scandal Queen Mascara sitting on my desk. Yay for gratis!! I have been a Diorshow ride-or-die mascara user for years now. Up until last year, Diorshow mascara was the only thing I went into Sephora to buy. So it's hard for me to give up my daily go-to mascara and try something new because I know that it works for me and I love the results. This is the exact reason why the Fairydrops mascara sat in my personal gratis box for a couple of months after receiving it. I was scared to take a chance on a new mascara.

I am religious about changing my mascara every three months. When the time came for me to replace my old tube, I realized that I was out. I forgot about how I had given my backup tube of Diorshow to my little sister the last time she was over. Even though I was without a new tube of Diorshow, I did have a brand new tube of Fairydrops sitting in my gratis box. I figured if there was ever a good time to take a chance on a new mascara, this was it.

The unique mascara wand is patented in Japan
The Fairydrops Scandal Queen Mascara has a formula blended with fiber that makes it volumizing and water and sweat resistant. The unique brush applicator is patented in Japan and is designed for an easy application of those small, hard-to-reach lashes. It sounded good in theory, but would it work for me?

Turns out that the unique mascara wand really did make for an easy application. I am notorious for getting mascara all over the place whenever I am applying it to my lashes. The curved brush applicator made it really easy to apply the mascara to both my top and bottom lashes without making a mess. I also loved the mascara's thick formula. I could have easily gotten away with one coat, but two coats really did the trick. Lots of volume. Lots of length.

The real test would be how my lashes looked at the end of the night. I was pretty happy with how my lashes looked when I left for work in the morning, but I would I still be just as happy once I got home that evening? I didn't experience any type of smudging or flaking throughout the day. The mascara did a great job of staying on my lashes and did not flake or wear off on the skin underneath my lower lash line. In fact, the Fairydrops mascara had done such a good job of staying on my lashes that getting the product off at the end of the night REQUIRED a double cleanse. How's that for staying power?

I found the more I used Fairydrops, the more I liked it. I really loved how easy it was to put the mascara on thanks to the patented brush. I really appreciated the product's staying power the entire time it was on my lashes. Even though I am now stocked up once again with Diorshow thanks to the brand's recent visit to our office, I wouldn't mind stocking up on Fairydrops mascara in the future, once my Diorshow mascara runs out.
