Mascara Series Part 12: Kiss Me Heroine Make Volume & Curl Mascara Review and Photos

November 5, 2008
Kiss Me Heroine Make Volume & Curl Mascara ($11.70 or so)

Description: Don’t mind the grammar this is taken from Sasa!

  • Long lasting super waterproof, such as tears, sweat, grease.
  • Including curly polymer, long lasting keep eyelash curl.
  • Mascara including tiny fiber, which can be increase volume of lashes, but would not stick lash together.

The Brush: Kiss Me’s Heroine Make Volume & Curl Mascara comes with the conventional curved bristled brush that accompanies many curling mascaras. It’s great for holding up your lashes to set the curl and the bristles are closely spaced together meaning no clumps. It’s nothing special but it does the job!

The Formula: Kiss Me’s Volume & Curl Mascara contains tons of tiny little fibers (click the photo above and you can see them attached to the brush) that are great for building length and volume. Unlike other fiber mascaras which can get messy with the clumping and fibers falling into your eyes, the Heroine Volume & Curl Mascara fibers give you nice definition and zero clumping. The fiber-based formula gives good length (thanks to the fibers attaching to the ends of your lashes), decent volume and amazing curl. I must say that the Japanese really know how to make a good mascara! And to top it all off this mascara stays put all day and all night–I’ve slept with it on and woen up to beautifully curled and separated lashes.

The Bad: While it’s great that this stuff stays put all day, Volume & Curl is a pain in the butt to remove! No amount of eye makeup remover or my oil cleanser gets this completely off, which is why I guess Heroine makes their own mascara remover.

The Verdict: I love the curl that this mascara gives me, and couple that with good length and volume and we have an all around winner. Unfortunately, I just can’t deal with mascaras that are this difficult to remove (like Majolica Majorca’s Lash Expander) so I can’t see myself using this all that often.

See the curl?
I’ve been getting a lot of questions about what shadow I’m wearing in these photos. It’s a teal/blue loose powder shadow by Jesse’s Girl (I’ve seen this brand at Rite Aid) that Taryn sent me. Isn’t is beautiful?
