Waterproof Length

I have this thing for trying out different mascaras. I can’t just stick to one. I think if you’re a long-time follower of this blog, you’ve already noticed that. I’ve had my share of ups and downs with mascaras but this one is definitely an up:

It says “length and waterproof” on the cover. Both check. I need to use my oil based Etude House Lip & Eye makeup remover for this. For the length part, see Exhibit A:

This was taken right after I applied the mascara. Does it last? See Exhibit B:

This was taken in the afternoon while I was on duty in our booth. There’s nothing special about the wand but it works:

What I like about this mascara is there are no annoying smells, it doesn’t clump and it doesn’t claim all that hullabaloo. It does what it says – it lengthens and it’s waterproof.

The wand is a bit thin though and I always fear that it might snap so I always carefully put this back into the tube. It doesn’t smudge on my lower eye area so that’s really good news as I’ve tried a lot of mascaras claiming they don’t smudge but they always do.

If you want this mascara and would also like to save a few bucks, I have another one available at Hyphen for only Php1,400. Yes, it’s authentic Shu Uemura. We don’t sell fakes at Hyphen. I get ticked whenever people say that my NAKED palette and other Sephora/UD  products are fake. Just letting off steam here. = )


  1. Yey for orig stuff!
    This is why I spurn stuff being sold at most online stores.
    Good thing there are trusted shops like yours.

    Tama lang a fair price for an uncompromised item.

  2. hyphen items are authentic. i can vouch for E. :)
    this seems like a good mascara but i still have the bobbi brown i won from your giveaway and i loveeeettt!!! <3

  3. missE, how is this compared to Clinique High Impact and Maybelline Great Lash thingies. or that Shiseido Volumizing. waterproof din naman kase sila eh.

  4. @Lady Stapler: This is actually cheaper than Rustan's. Thank you for trusting us!

  5. @cafemobility: I think I'll do a separate post on that
