The mascara comes in as a standard circular tube with silver prints on it. 




Wand

It has a curled wand with little visible fibres. Most lengthening mascaras have a lot of fibres in it. I find this wand a pretty good size and it is easy to control and dispense the right amount of products. You can easily reach the tiny lashes at the inner corners of your eyes. The n-shape of the wand also complements the eye shape well, making it effortless to use. 




Colours available

There are 2 colours available for this series - black and brown. 
You can create a natural or dramatic look with the colour options available. 




Swatch/Look

Lengthens and gives a decent amount of volume. It doesn't really clump but do not reapply after a coat has dried. IT WILL CLUMP if you do so. If you wish to build volume/intensity, just let it sit for a quick moment because applying a second/third layer. This was 1 layer of mascara and I went back in at the ends. 




Waterproof

As claimed, it is very waterproof and smudge-proof. 




Removal

This is one of the hardest mascaras to remove thus far. I have tested it with various makeup removers I have (read my product review on Biore cleansing waterNivea Micellar water and Botanic Micellar Cleanser) and so far they did not come close to a good removal. 

After testing several products, I found oil-based removers removed the best. You can purchase the mascara remover from Heroine Make itself or just opt for an oil-based remover. I am currently using Etude House Mascara remover and it is working very well. 



Overall, this is my go-to mascara. I have tested out 3 other different mascaras from different brands and all of them didn't perform up to standard. Was so frustrated that I went back to pick this up. You always need a good back up plan. I don't think the photos did justice to the product, you will understand me if you've seen or tried it for yourself.

It does a good job defining my eyes and it gives a good lengthening effect. Heroine Make's mascara does not smudge (who likes mascaras that do anyway). No issues with flaking as well. It can be difficult to remove WITH THE WRONG PRODUCT so choose your weapons well ladies. 


There are 3 options under Heroine Make mascara range - long and curl, volume and advanced film. I am sure you will find something to cater to your needs. 

All in all, I have been using this for many many years and I am so glad they have not removed it from the shelves. (MM is removed :( ). Highly recommend you to give this a go if you're looking for a good and affordable mascara. 



Pros:

- Waterproof
- Smudge-proof
- Jet black
- Wand is easy to use


Cons:

- Can look clumpy
- Hard to remove 
- Chemical smell





Rating: 9.5/10
Will repurchase, good back up plan
