Megaholic Rubber Extension Mascara

Ha... Like I need anothe mascara... But I just cant stop myself from grabbing an anime gal-illustrated packaging. Especially when she whipped out that mascara wand to get ultra long mascara.

Let's see if this one helps my stubby lashes to appear longer...

I am not sure which manufacturer make this Megaholic rubber extension mascara... anyways, it looks cute and attractive, dont you think?

This one rocks comb-style applicator. I am not too used with comb style, took me a while to get used to it... and the comb doesnt help to separate my lases at all. it ends up clumped together. wiggling the comb during applcation is simple way to help separate the lashes.

now the formula... thick and ultra black and glossy. just like how I like my mascara to be. and it does help make my lashes longer. Count me happy with the result! Piling on would make my lash appear blacker thicker and longer.

I am pretty worried how to remove this one... it doesnt say anything related to its waterproof ness and how to remove it. thankfully it removes easily with warm water. this is one of those film type or tubing mascara.

Now if you'd excuse me, I need to go back to the shop and get myself another tube of this mascara... I am in love...

Naris Up Acmedica Oil Control Powder DX Clear

I do not need another teeny weeny compact powder. But I just cant stop myself when I see one. May be it is the size... may be it’s the idea that I can stuff this even to my smallest bag...

Naris is Japanese drug store brand which make a few pretty nice powders and other make up stuff. From the name of the product, I think this is supposed to be good for those with troubled spotty skin. With oil control too!
I do like the packaging of this one. That pimple like thing on the side of the cover aside, the packaging is nice and well designed. The top compartment fits the baby blue colored puff. When you flap the partition, it reveals the pressed powder and tiny mirror! Just love the fact that my puff wont be doused with too much powder anymore! Yay!

Now the powder itself. As you can see it is very very white. The texture is unfortunately not the most finely milled around. And the powder is not translucent, I am pretty sure it will look ashy on deeper skin tone. Even on me, it does look ashy if I don’t spread it evenly.
Ashy look aside, it does pretty good job maintaining more matte looking T zone. I need to blot after 3-4 hours. Not bad...
Another thing... it smells a little like sulphur if you sniff close enough. But i don’t detect the smell when I apply the powder though.
Is it worth it?
Yes if... you are super fair and you want more oil control
No if... your skin has deeper tone, you don’t want to deal with internet shopping
