I Wonder: "Are We The Same Weirdos?"

For someone who reviews various products, it is normal to try different brands and different products all at the same time! Speaking about my own experience, if my orders arrive or if I get a new product for review, I wouldn't mind opening them up at once and swatch them and try them ASAP.  That's me!  That's why I can review products easily because I don't mind testing them on myself and to other people as soon as I can.

But, yes, there's a butt BUT!

Did you know that there's ONE makeup product I can't seem to open unless I've thrown the old one away?  Do you want to guess?  Hint: this product needs to be thrown out around 3-5 months! 

Smart!  You got it!

That's why I have these to try and haven't gotten the chance to review them yet because....I still have loads to finish before I open a new one....

There's the 
Avon Super Shock Mascara


 Colour Collection Triple Effect Mascara

 Revlon CustomEyes Waterproof Mascara

Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara

Bobbi Brown Everything Mascara

Adding up to the list above, I recently bought 2 of my favorite mascara brands for back-ups!  *clears throat* Okay, I bought 2 backups for each brand!

Maybelline Magnum Volum' Express Mascara


Etude House Henna Fix Proof 10 Mascara

And I have a "to-repurchase" list which will add up to my mascara collection....

Majolica Majorca 
Lash Enamel Glamour Volume On Mascara


Okay, shoot me!  I don't deserve to live...!
But wait!  Before you do, can you please let me know if I'm not alone with this?

I'll just read your responses in heaven! *laughs*
By the way, please comment which mascara you want me to review first so I won't have a hard time deciding which brand to try out next! The most request wins! :)

Have a gorgeous Saturday!
Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

  1. I don't have mascara backups--all the ones I own are open now, heehee--but if I had the luxury I would have at least one black and one brown mascara open at all times! And maybe a third one with a more dramatic formula for special occasions or the weekend :) I love Etude's Henna Fix too! I vote MK Lash Love, I have always been curious about their products :)

    Oh I have a question though, sorta off-topic: do you think it's ok to wear non-waterproof mascara considering our humid weather? :( I've always worn waterproof because I'm scared of smudging.

  2. You're not alone Nikki! :)) I have a thing with mascara too. I'll always say, sayang naman if I open this when I can still use this. :)) It drives me nuts. It's not only mascara, I also have a thing for gel liners. haha. I had my Kate Gel Liner for a while now. But I wanted to "finish" or at least make the stila one dry up a bit before I open it. I just recently open it, because my husband just sent me another one. And I was really curious about it na. haha

  8. I wish I have that kind of discipline but I'm usually very excited to try out any new item (especially when it comes to Mascara!)that I just have to .... experience it! :D

  9. I tend to do this to, but i'll still have several on the go at once!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I do this too! Mascaras have such short shelf-lives that I can only bring myself to use one at a time.

  11. wow! thats such a cute "habit"! i do share "stocking up" habit with you. frankly its more of a fear na maubusan! haha i have three cats eye mascara in stock... eh i have loads of mascara pa

  12. @Kari Well I do have 4 opened for alternate uses! :) Ahh MK lash Love, ok then will take note on that :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. @Kari Sorry forgot to answer, re: the non-waterproof and waterproof version, well I haven't found a non-waterproof version that really works on me! If there's one, its either the mascara is too natural looking or it doesn't give me the volume that I want. So the answer is, if you want vavavoom lashes, go for the waterproof version :) Our weather is crazy and humid!

  14. @Care GUMIN Ahhh with gel liners, I guess I love gel liners too much, I don't mind opening them up at once, well there's a bit of heartache but I can shrug it off, with mascara it's different talaga! Suicidal ang feeling :P

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Issa Ahh thanks for voting, looks interesting din the Colour Collection...so will you wait for 10 yrs for my review? :P Just joking!

    ReplyDelete
  20. @Gie I guess it's that ruling that makes us want to use the current mascara to its maximum lifespan before we open another one!

    ReplyDelete
  21. @Caeyo Hahahah I'm quite disciplined naman if I want to :P

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Jamilla Camel I think its the same with me too! I have reasons, 4 mascaras open for 4 different days, its not always I am aiming for volume? or lengthening right? :P

    ReplyDelete
  23. @gio Wow you are more displined! I can't seem to use JUST ONE mascara!

    ReplyDelete
  24. @Kumiko Mae Ahhh is the Cats Eye mascara good? That's the one from Maybelline right?

    ReplyDelete

  27. Do a review on the Revlon mascara please.

    I also store away mascara so I wouldn't get tempted to use them until I'm through with the one I'm using. I try not to hoard them too. Ibang usapan when it comes to other makeup. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. No mascara backups here too... I learned my lesson during my mascara phase :P

    Well at least it won't all go to waste, you can use them on your clients, right?

    and Nikki, please do a review of Lancome Oscillation Mascara. I'd like to know if it's worth shelling out big bucks on :P

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'd hoard mascara too, if I wasn't afraid of them drying up and hardening! Half the time I can't wait for my mascara to finish so I can buy and try new brands (kahit short na ang pera, haha!). Anyway, I vote MK Lash Love since it's not something I can try in stores. :)
