It’s magical and whimsical and marketed right. I have to admit, if Sephora didn’t have this mascara in every email blast for a month, I would have never heard of it. As I read more about it, I wanted to give it a try. The ingredients were interesting and the applicator was original. After one layer of Fairy Drops Scandal Queen Mascara ($24) I fell in love. I love the dolly/doe eyed effect it gave my eyes.
How does it work? The fibers lengthen while collagen adds a supple plump your to your lashes. Their “curl-keep” polymer keeps lashes curled all day without the need for a lash curler and jojoba oil and squalane keep your lashes strong and moisturized. The unusual applicator looks like 3 spheres on a curved brush. This helps to lift and curl the inner, center, and outer corner lashes for a maximum eye opening effect. Fairy Drops is a Japanese cosmetics company that has an entire line of makeup available to Asia only. Hopefully, the success of their Drama Queen mascara will bring more of their products to the States.

I really didn’t want to hop on the “Lash Blast” Bandwagon, but I decided to give it a try (mostly beacause it was orange). I had returned every drug store mascara I purchased because they were all pretty horrible, but this one’s a keeper! It wasn’t clumpy, flaky or dry. It separated, volumized dramatically and lengthened my lashes. This will definitely be the mascara in my makeup artist kit. LOVES IT!!!

In the magical year of 1984, the Make Up For Ever cosmetic line was created by sculptor and painter, Dany Sanz. Since the 1970s, Dany’s Parisian Makeup Academy has taught makeup application that range from basic to advanced stage effects. Because of the quality of her makeup formulas and special techniques, her services as a makeup artist were high in demand. Later, she was able to create a line of quality cosmetics available to the public.
Why I LOVE this brand:
My career fantasy is to be a makeup artist for music artists and bands. I love to be creative and to transform people. Make Up Forever is perfect for photo shoots and television because they offer their HD Generation collection. This line of complexion perfection (includes foundation, primer, concealer and powder) makes skin look flawless on camera no matter how close up your close-up is. They also provide a large selection of matte colors for eyes, face and lips.
Make Up For Ever is also perfect for live gigs thanks to their long lasting, highly pigmented formulas. They carry the widest selection of waterproof cosmetics I’ve ever seen. Their Face and Body Liquid Makeup ($38) is a super light weight water-based gel is long lasting and waterproof. Their Aqua eyes eyeliner ($17) comes in 25 shades, Aqua Creamliner ($20) has 6 shades. Tested by professional synchronized swimmers, Pro Waterproof Eyeliner is only available in black at Make Up For Ever boutiques. To top it off, (as if their makeup wasn’t awesome enough already) Make Up For Ever carries a sealer for face and eyes.
All fantasies aside, I love Make Up For Ever because of the quality and selection. My favorite formulas of makeup to use are cream, gel and liquid. Major department store brands only offer a few colors of these textures. With Make Up For Ever, I don’t have to bounce around from counter to counter to get every color of cream shadow I want.
