AMW Reviews: FairyDrops Platinum Mascara Film Type-Water Resistant

During my Japan trip early this year, one of the cosmetics brand quite popular is called FairyDrops.  The brand caught my interest because of their colorful and "kawaii" packaging! 

Later this year, I heard that FairyDrops is going to be available at the Beauty Bar and I can't help but feel excited as the brand is known for creating mascaras that gives doll-like lashes!  Who wouldn't want that?

I know I do!

FairyDrops says ---
  • A do-it-all fiber mascara.  Gives you doll like lashes + treatment.
  • Contains Volume Up Powder, Wax and Fiber and 5 kinds of treatment essence to beautify and repair eyelashes.
  • Hydrolyzed Collagen, Squalene, Sodium Hyaluronate, Jojoba Seed Oil and Panthenol: retains moisture, softens, hydrates and adds volume to lashes.
  • All day curl, smudge proof and yet easily removed with soap and water.
  • Lashes feel soft to touch.  No to brittle feeling lashes!
AMW says ---
  • Super adorable packaging! 
  • Nice curved wand with unique 3 teardrop shape making it easy to reach even short lashes.
  • Definitely CLUMP-FREE!  (AMW tested 4 coats)
  • Gives a nice length to my super short lashes.
  • Doesn't weigh down the curl.
  • Lashes remain soft.
  • No smudging.
  • Easy to remove with regular soap and water.
  • The mascara can gives a nice "curl" on your lashes.  (May not work for those with short and super straight lashes pointing downwards.)
  • Gives a natural false lash effect.
  • Has additional treatment to hydrate and adds volume to lashes.
  • Price (for those not comfortable spending more than Php1,000 for mascaras)
  • Possible flaking.  (not too much)
FairyDrops Platinum Mascara Film Type gives a nice curl, length and volume to my lashes minus clumping.  Lashes remain soft and curled up for the whole day and best of all, it is very easy to remove with warm water.

  • If you feel more comfortable wearing waterproof mascara, you can opt to purchase Fairydrops Platinum Mascara in Waterproof Type.
  • For people with super short and stick straight lashes, I personally prefer to curl my lashes using your favorite eyelash curler prior to any mascara application.
  • If you tend to smudge mascara onto your eyelid, use the business card method to prevent transferring mascara to your lids.
  • To make sure all the mascaras are completely remove, you can clean using cotton buds too.
Will I repurchase?
Yes!  I repurchased the waterproof type version for clients! 

To whom do I recommend this to?
Mascara wearers who dislike to take time at night in removing their waterproof mascaras but still want the smudge-proof feature.

Where to purchase and how much?
Available in all Beauty Bar stores for Php1,195.00 (approx $28.45)LIKE FairyDrops Philippines on Facebook for more product updates.


Cute packaging of the FairyDrops Platinum Mascara Film Type

Back portion has everything written in Japanese.
The diagram is easy to understand though even without knowledge on Japanese language.

Cute silver tube with nice patterns.
Definitely kawaii!

Unique 3-Teardrop shaped wand making it easy to reach short lashes.

Before and After photo of my lashes (Front View)
Since my lashes are almost non-existent to start with, the extra length was seen on the after photo and my eyes looked more define.

Another view/angle
This photo was taken after applying 4 full coats.  Base on photos you can see that there isn't any clumping at all!  Each lashes were coated thus making each strand looks more define. Can you imagine how great this will look on girls with originally long and full lashes?  *envious*

Side view
The after photo was taken 6 hours after, there wasn't any smudging, there was a tiny bit of flaking (1-2 flakes) but none that I can't handle.  As seen on after photo, my lashes remain upright so this proved that the mascara didn't weigh my lashes down.

Would you give FairyDrops Platinum Mascara Film Type -Water Resistant a try?
I am definitely happy with the performance of this mascara and I don't mind taking a break from regular waterproof mascaras on a regular basis as to give my lashes the rest it deserves from all the scrubbing and rubbing at the end of the day!

  1. That's definitely a good mascara. I hate clumpy ones :)

  2. the wand looks really cute! honestly i will just buy it for the sake of this wand XD

  3. Yes, I would love to try only if it were not that expensive, hihihi....cute din ng packaging!

    1. Issa, well you have lovely lashes to start with, for someone with non-existent lashes like mine, i don't mind na paying a bit more basta maganda!

  4. Isn't that the cutest :) I usually skip mascara only because I have to curl my lashes and I find that painful to do. I'll have to look for an eyelash curler that won't result to self injury. :)

    1. oh, if you dislike curling your lashes, try this!

  5. The mascara works great on U! Good lenght!

  6. Only HK$118 or about P620 in Sasa stores in Hongkong!

    1. Yes, I know its way cheaper in HK only if you get to visit there, but for us who aren't traveling to HK anytime, I'm glad its available locally! Thanks for the info :D
