Dollywink Black Mascara (#02 volume)
Price: $22.99 USD
Shade: Black

Dollywink is a Japanese brand that carries amazing products especially fake eyelashes and mascara. This mascara was gifted to me and I instantly fell in love with it on the first try. From my experience I have learned that mascaras usually do not do what you want it to do on your very first try. But when your 2nd – 3rd try of the product swings around it will usually start to work the way you want it to. Since I am Asian I have been blessed with thin and insignificant lashes so finding mascara that works well is hard. Honestly speaking, this could become my staple mascara.

To begin with, this mascara is VERY waterproof! This baby will not wash off with just water, so it is definitely a plus if you tend to find your mascara under your eyes at the end of your day. The only thing that washes it off is a good soaking under cotton pads with oil based makeup remover. So I highly recommend this mascara if you do not mind the difficulty in removal, and you are looking for a waterproof mascara. This would definitely be amazing if you needed to take a trip to the beach, it will not make you look like a monster after your day.

I found this mascara very volumizing, my lashes looked fuller without clumping. Not only did it make my lashes look fuller it also lengthened my lashes a bit. My lashes do not get exponentially longer like lengthening mascara would, but it does lengthen enough for a natural look. The small, short, and dense bristles on the wand are great for short lashes. I also found that because of this design, it was rare that I would get mascara in places I did not want it.

On the negative side the bristles are not all around the wand like you would find in many mascara wands. This design does contribute to the product not getting everywhere, however I had to pay attention to the side the bristles are facing before using it.

Overall I really recommend this product if you are on the hunt for a smudge proof mascara. Its great ability to create a fuller look with some length is definitely a plus in my books.
