Hi everyone!

I want to share with you one of my most favorite mascaras. I've been using this non-stop ever since I bought it at the 5th Phil-Cosmetics Expo last September. It's a permanent resident of my makeup kit. Though I still use other mascaras, this one is definitely my go-to mascara. Ladies (and gentlemen?) I present to you the Holika Holika Magic Pole Mascara (waterproof).

Here's the thing, I love my eyes but I hate the fact that I don't have naturally long and curled eyelashes. I have what they call the Asian Eyes and when I open my eyes, it's like I don't have eyelashes at all. That's why I never leave the house without applying mascara because it opens up my eyes and adds life on my eyes.

My current favorite is the Holika Holike Magic Pole mascara in waterproof. It's also available in regular so that means the other one is not waterproof and I know some of you love that kind of mascaras but I personally go for the waterproof ones even though it's usually a pain in the a** to remove. Anyway, I got it for only PhP 350.00 from my cousin Soleil of Makeup By Soleil during the 5th Phil-Cosmetics Expo. The main reason why I picked this mascara is because of its wand.

The tip of the wand is spherical which I and my boyfriend find very cute. Haha! He likes unusual stuff! He doesn't really care about my makeup stuff but this one amuses him. Hahaha! Anyway, going back to the mascara, according to Holika Holika, the special spherical wand is what made this mascara the best seller among their other products. The rounded ball at the tip of the wand reaches the hard-to-reach part of your eyelashes --- and that means the inner part. The spherical tip does an awesome job in separating, volumizing, and lengthening the eyelashes. It's amazing, I'm telling ya! It also reaches the tiniest corner and strand of the bottom eyelashes.

Look at my side-by-side before and after photos below:

It's so obvious how awesome the Holika Holika Magic Pole mascara is! As you can see in the left photo, it's like I don't even have eyelashes while in the right photo, it's as if I've put on a pair of false eyelashes. The spherical wand is definitely the one to blame for my long and volumized eyelashes. But that's not the only thing that I love about this mascara. You also have to consider the formula of a mascara because aside from the fancy wands, the formula is what really helps give you that lengthening and volumizing effect. This mascara contains fiber extract which enhances and strengthens the eyelashes. The color is jet black so it will definitely give you a strong look on your eyelashes and it will add so much life on your eyes.

This mascara is waterproof and smudgeproof. It stays on the whole day, it does not give me that raccoon eyes or panda eyes even if I sweat or my under eyes get oily. I've tested it on the back of my hand. I swatched the mascara then let it dry for a few seconds.

I swear, the photo above and the photo below are completely different. I rubbed the mascara with my fingers and it did not smudge at all.

It did not even transfer on my fingers that I used to rub it. No trace of black fibers at all.

Now you know why I love this mascara so much. If you want to purchase and try this awesome mascara out, please visit my cousin's page
