Beauty Queen: Fairydrops Scandal Queen Waterproof Mascara Review

01 Fairydrops Scandal Queen Waterproof Mascara ReviewI’ve had disappointing experiences before with Fairydrops mascaras, but this one–Scandal Queen Waterproof Mascara–came highly recommended by my friend. When she gave me this as a gift, I was cautiously optimistic.

My issues with the other ones I’d tried (regular Scandal Queen and the Platinum Film Type) was that they didn’t hold a curl. I was pleasantly surprised then when this mascara managed to hold the curl and make it last all day–and I have heavily hooded lids! (My friend swears she doesn’t even need a lash curler. I have stick straight lashes that point downward, so I haven’t tried skipping the curler.)

The formula has fibers for additional length, and sometimes I’ll randomly get a fiber perched delicately at the end of a lash, giving me extra long lashes here and there. I think it helps to brush the wand through slowly and lightly, but I’m not sure. I won’t pretend that I’ve mastered how to place the fibers where I want them.

I’ve been alternating between this mascara and the Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl. Both hold a curl exceptionally well (Long & Curl has a marginally stiffer hold), but the Fairydrops is better at volumizing.

Volume is one of my main issues with Long & Curl: it defines and slightly lengthens my lashes but offers no volume, so my lashes look like skinny little sticks.

Fairydrops does it all–length, volume, and curl–so well, giving me fluttery, lifted lashes with volume at the base that tapers off naturally at the ends. 03 Fairydrops Scandal Queen Waterproof Mascara Review

And here’s a photo where I raised my hooded eyelids as high as they go (don’t laugh) so you can see how lifted my lashes are.

04 Fairydrops Scandal Queen Waterproof Mascara ReviewPros: Great mix of length, volume, and curl-holding power.  So good that I added it to my list of Best Curl-Holding Mascaras for Asian hooded eyes.

Cons: Large brush can gather too much formula and can make applying to lower lashes tricky.

    1. They’ve never migrated, but I always top my mascara with a clear waterproofing topcoat. That might help lock the fibers down. Also, the mascara doesn’t have as many fibers and certainly not fluffy, flyaway fibers as in those lash sets with separate tubes of just fibers.

  1. I don’t have this FairyDrops mascara- I have Volume and Curl Burst Water Proof version(purple tube)-but I’m glad to hear that you like it! I really like the FairyDrops brand overall.
