Askmewhats Reviews: Artistry Waterproof Mascara 200

Hi everyone!

I have done so many Product Reviews, but I've realized I haven't been doing a lot of review for mascaras. I've used a couple but I have to admit, I am not a "daily" mascara user. That's the reason for the rare mascara reviews.

Anyways, I have the chance to try on Amway's Artistry Waterproof Mascara 200. 200 because it promotes to thicken lashes 200%

Is this true? We'll see....

Artistry Waterproof Mascara 200 says ---
  • Available in waterproof and smudgeproof formulas, for perfect lashes all day.
  • Defines and darkens lashes without clumping or "raccoon-eyes."
  • Measurably thickens lashes up to 200%.
Askmewhats says ---

  • packaging is simple yet I like it
  • no clumping
  • no smudging/raccoon eyes
  • curl stays whole day (if I curled my lashes correctly prior to application)
  • easy to remove
  • the wand is wonderful! It's shaped beautifully that I won't touch the skin around my eye with mascara


  • definitely does not thicken my lashes
  • gives out a "no mascara" look
  • don't see any differences on Before and After shots (photos below)


If you are looking into a SUPER natural lashes or you are born with long and luscious lashes. This is a great mascara for you. I find this is good for everyday but it doesn't make much difference to my "puny" lashes. So I need to move on and look for other mascaras :)


  • apply your regular volumizing mascara and use this to "de-clump" as I really love the wand!
  • perfect mascara if you want to use this to apply to your lashes with falsies.

Will I repurchase?


Where can you purchase and how much?

websites worldwide. I don't know how much the exact amount is as I won this from Beauty Bento Box contest last year.

Now let me show you the specs! :)
Gold handle and perfect size
easy to control

Here's my lashes prior to mascara application
no base used

No curling done
2 coats of Artistry Waterproof Mascara 200
in Dark Brown

As you can see,
length - remains the same
volume - the same

I think this is just a good mascara to "fix" your lashes and put them in place.
Great for daily use but not for special occasion!.
I love this mascara if I use falsies though :)
I know this is not readily available in beauty counters
but at least, you know what to expect when you see these mascaras
Stay happy!

  1. eh, dissapointment :P
    i stay true to my telescopic or my maybeline <3 haha

    you use everyday minerals right?
    i was wondering what color you use & what you think about the product..has it broken you out?
    have you tried other products from them?

    haha sorry about all the questions :P

  2. Great review Nikki! :) Thanks for sharing.

  3. great review! i love the way you took the eye pictures

  4. the pro-claimed 200% is def cheating! even maybelline XXL is much better than this. thanks for reviewing this so there won't be anymore victims :P

  5. Fuz, My pleasure!

    Yumyumsushi, I've yet to try Telescopic! :) Thanks for confirming that it is a great mascara! About your query, I am GOLDEN FAIR, but I found most of the other colors doesn't matter as their shades are quite close to one another, but I'm matched on the GOLDEN side. About breaking out, no, I'm glad I didn't broke out on them, I think it is a great product and it's nice on the normal and oily skin individuals, I'm on the dry skin side, so I have to shift from time to time! But it gives out great coverage and a nice matte finish :) Hope this helps!

  6. I have never seen this mascara or even the brand before, and by the looks of it, I never will. :P

    I'm near the end of my TBS Super Volume mascara. This is one mascara that I will be repurchasing after I've gone through the ones in my train case. It delivers every time!

  7. Lootwagon, no problem, I'm glad to share my reviews!

    M, lol I find it a bit weird at first , but I'm glad I'm used to seeing my eye shot THAT CLOSE! Thanks for liking it!

    Prettybeautiful, well it could work to some but not to me! not even 110% :D

  8. from Artistry I just have pack powder and now i totally need to try that mascara! thanks for this review :)

  9. Well it's definitely not a good mascara LOL. Thanks for reviewing this anyway! Even though I tend to stick with my fave brand when it comes to mascara; which is Maybelline :D (and sometimes Borjouis, too!)

    I haven't tried L'oreal Telescopic but I want to try it as well for comparison.

  10. i agree, no difference. but won't that be a great brush for the lower lashes?? the tip is so thin that applying mascara on the lower lashes would seem to be easy. :)

  11. Anastacia, you're welcome :)

    Devi, you know what? Stay with what works for you :)

    Shen, I don't have much lashes on the lower lash line..so yeah.you're right though, it'll be perfect for the lower lashes! the brush head, I really love!


I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment your questions, suggestions and just anything you may want to say! Keep smiling and stay happy!
