I’ve been hearing this brand alot for years now, with my friends always buying some from abroad, and even asking me to buy extra for them to give away as gifts for Christmas. They must love it so much, so when I bought some for a friend while I was in Hong Kong, I also bought some for myself, just buying randomly, and picking a good color, not knowing what is the difference of one to another! Haha!
Fairydrops is a Japanese cosmetics brand that specializes in their mascaras. Their mascaras have a cult following that is not only within Asia, but also in the US, with it being a bestseller in Sephora!
Aya Yasuda, the founder and CEO of Fairydrops Mascara was an anchorwoman at the Major League Baseball on a local TV station in Los Angeles. She always longed to have the big, photogenic eyes her co-workers seemed to possess. She often wondered what it was specifically that caused the difference, especially on camera. One day Aya realized it was the long, upward slopping eyelashes that some newscasters had. From that day on, she started experimenting , cutting application brushes into all sorts of shapes and sizes, testing each brush to see which shape made her eyes look the biggest on TV.
After months of research and experimenting, the 3-teardrop wand was born. The wand caught and lifted even the shortest eyelashes, giving her the big , photogenic eyes that she dreamed of for so long. The results were remarkable, Aya knew she had to share the 3-teardrop wand with other women back in Japan. She started her own company, AYA INC. in Tokyo. Now Fairydrops Mascara is sold not only in Japan but also throughout Asia and is one of the most popular mascaras in the Asia region.
I must admit that I have trouble making my eyes looking big on photos, it’s just so hard! I’ve been doing all eyelining tricks here and there, but to no avail. Apparently, mascaras play a HUGE role in making your eyes look bigger, by giving more definition to the eye area. But then, with my really oily skin, I am unable to invest much in mascaras in a heartbeat because they give me panda-eyes ( smudging. )
Fairydrops is perfect for the Philippine climate – tropical, hot, and humid. The mascaras are available in two formulas – film type ( water resistant, but are removed by warm water, just how I like it ) , and waterproof. I personally like the film type because even by using the film type formula of Fairydrops, I already find it good enough for me as I do not like waterproof formulas that are really difficult to remove at the end of the day! For daily use, I believe that the film type is already enough. My eyes start to get that smudge factor at the end of the day when I start rubbing vigorously my eyes, which is a really, really bad habit. If you don’t touch it, it won’t move a bit, and it would stay perfect all throughout the day.
Right now, I am using the Platinum film type variant, which makes my eyes really defined and big. A big plus is that it holds my curl! I need big eyes, wide-awake eyes! Hahaha!
By looking at this ad from Fairydrops, I would have to say…that it works…halfway the effect as shown above! Some might have more fabulous results, but I can already be happy with what I have, which are really thin, and sparse lashes! I truly feel that I have great lashes already by using this, that keeps me wanting to get this over and over again!
Aside from their winning mascaras, Fairydrops also has mineral powders, lip products, and even BB cream here. Fairydrops products are available at your nearest Beauty Bar branch!
So, who has tried Fairydrops mascaras? Tell me about it please!
