Car Mela Mascara Composition | Born Pretty Store

As I type this post, the rain is still pouring hard outside. Please stay safe, wherever you are! I pray for everyone's safety!

---------------------------------------

For the past months, I was thinking of getting eyelash extensions. I did researches here and there to make sure I'll arrive to the best decision but when I was all set to have my dull-looking lashes extended, a co-teacher (who had extensions before) told me I can't go swimming after for it will damage the extensions. And that single statement drove me away from getting that fuller-looking eyelashes I've always wanted. I love swimming and I chose to swim than have long and fuller eyelashes. Hehe!

So yes, I have decided to just stick with my usual routine -- lengthening and volumizing mascara for everyday and a set of false eyelashes for special events. I was running out of my current favorite mascara, the Majolica Majorca Lash Gorgeous Wing Neo, when Nicole of Born Pretty Store emailed me to say that she sent me a mascara set for review.

And just some days after, I picked up the Car Mela Mascara Composition from our local post office. 


I died when I saw the packaging. This leopard-printed eyewear case houses two tubes of mascara -- the Transplanting Gel and the Natural Fiber. It came with a instructional guide on how to use the set but I have to email Nicole for the instructions because I could not understand a single word. It's in Chinese, ata. 


This set is unusual for me, to be honest. This set came with a transplanting gel, which looks like more of the usual mascara, and a natural fiber, which is basically a tube of fibers. 

Transplanting Gel wand.
Natural Fiber wand.
Eyelash slender secret recipe + Transplanting Gel (included in the longer one) + Fiber ( the shorter one)
Instruction:
1, use the longer one to brush your eyelash equably, as the picture B shows
2, use the fiber to add the length of your eyelash, make it longer and longer, as the picture C shows
3, use the loneger one again to cover the white fiber, make your eyelash longer
4, recycle the 2-3 steps for several times, make it long enough to as you want. : )

Information came from Born Pretty Store website.


Interesting, indeed. I tested out its claim of being waterproof and proved that it is water-resistant but not really waterproof. The gel and the fiber withstood the presence of water but both were ruined after some careful rubbing.


So after weeks of using, I am ready to share to you my thoughts about this mascara set from Born Pretty Store.


What I LIKE:
  • Inexpensive -- The set costs $11.00 or roughly around Php460.00.
  • Very cute leopard-printed packaging -- I have plans of using it as a case for my eyeglasses. :)

  • Water-resistant
  • Sealed upon purchase -- This is important to make sure that you're actually getting a fresh, new tube.
  • No weird smell
  • Lengthens my lashes
  • Does not look clumpy even after 2-3 applications
  • Looks natural
  • Born Pretty Store has awesome service!

What I DON'T LIKE:
  • Does not hold the curls
  • The fiber goes everywhere during application.
  • Somehow tedious to do 2 steps to get the results -- Some mascaras lengthen the lashes in just one go.
  • Only available in one shade.


Will I repurchase?
No, I still prefer the ones from Maybelline and Majolica Majorca even if those are a bit pricier.


Notes:
Do you're eye makeup first before proceeding with your face makeup. The fiber goes everywhere and has the tendency to stick on to the foundation. Just use a fan brush to clean your face from fibers and then apply you're face makeup like usual.

AFTER


Look at all the fibers on my upper lids.

Generally, I like the Car Mela Mascara Composition but I like the ones from Maybelline and Majolica Majorca more. I don't think this set will work good on those in a hurry to do their makeup because you have to do 2 steps to achieve the results. Nevertheless, if you're after the sure length, this mascara set is worth a try!
