AMW Reviews: Fairydrops Volume Burst Mascara (Waterproof)

Since my last review on the Fairydrops Platinum Mascara Film-Type Water-Resistant early this month, I got emails from readers telling me how much they wanted to try the said mascara but are scared because they prefer waterproof version. 

Today, I finally got the chance to review the Fairydrops Volume Burst Mascara in waterproof version and I hope this post will make it easier for you to decide which Fairydrops mascara to purchase!

This mascara has been raved worldwide because of its lightweight wax and fiber and how it can survive strong humidity!  (hello fellow Asian countries!)


Fairydrops says ---
  • Contains Volume Up Powder, wax and Fiber to make "volume burst" in one coat to give you lush, doll-like lashes.
  • All day curl, smudge proof and yet easily removed with cleansing oil.
  • Lashes feel soft to touch.  No to brittle feeling lashes.

AMW says ---
  • Packaging is LOVE!
  • Fancy 3 teardrop mascara wand is cute and easy to reach even short lashes.
  • The formulation is just right, not too wet nor dry.
  • Lightweight formula, doesn't weight my lashes down.
  • Dries quickly upon application.
  • Waterproof, tear-proof, morning sickness proof!  *lol*
  • No flaking.
  • The length it gives to my lashes is amazing!
  • Gives a good definition on each lash hair.
  • Lashes don't have the "crunchy-feel".
  • If you are lazy in removing eye makeup, this mascara isn't for you!  The waterproof formulation needs extra care in removal.  (Either eye makeup remover or cleansing oil.)
  • Price.  (This is more inexpensive than the film type mascara but still, some people wouldn't dare spend more than Php500.00 for mascaras.)
  • Could make your lashes clump if NOT applied properly.
  • Difficult to purchase especially for our international readers.
Contains fiber which can increase length and volume of lashes.

  • Take a bit of time in application as the fibers could get into your eyes and it's a huge OUCH!
  • I did try this mascara upto 3 coats but 2 is enough.  Applying too much may make your lashes look unnatural and too "separated".
  • Though this mascara can be used without curling your lashes, I prefer to have your lashes curled to have a better effect.
  • DO NOT share the same mascara wand.
  • Always start from the roots of your lashes and gently curl up. 
Will I repurchase?
Yes, for clients!  For personal use, I prefer the Fairydrops Platinum Mascara Film-Type Water Resistant as it is easier to remove plus I don't oil up as much on the eye area.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Girls who are more comfortable using waterproof mascaras.

The gorgeous whimsical packaging!
It is very easy to spot this inside my kit.

 Unique 3 Teardrop Mascara Wand
Patented in Japan and USA.

Application technique - AMW style
Some people prefer to use the mascara as it is even without curling.  As for me, I prefer to curl my lashes first, use the 3 teardrop wand to catch my short and sparse lashes and gently wiggle it all the way up.  

 Front view
Most of the time, even with coats of mascara, you won't see my lashes in front view!  As for the Fairydrops Volume Burst Mascara, you can immediately see my lashes peeking through.  (It's not a lot but its a huge difference for me!)

On a different angle
The Fairydrops Volume Burst Mascara may be named after the way it can volumize lashes, as for my personal experience, it gives me a good amount of length!  See how long my lashes look in the before and after photo below.

Side View
Because Fairydrops Volume Burst Mascara has fibers in it, it coats each strand of my lash hair giving it a more defined, darker lashes effect.

Have you checked out Fairydrops mascaras in local Beauty Bars?
Which Fairydrops mascara is your favorite?  

Would you include this in your Christmas Wishlist?

As of the moment, the film-type is my favorite but this goes to my list of "will recommend" mascaras!  I love how it maintains the curl of my lashes and the extra length my lashes deserve!
