Review: SilkyGirl Hi-Definition Waterproof Mascara

SilkyGirl is one of those brands that I wouldn't spend more than 5 minutes looking at. It's not because I'm a brand snob but the mere sight of the tacky packaging is sometimes enough to put me off. Still, I'll have to admit that Silkygirl has its gems. One in particular that got me totally excited were the Moisture Max Lipglosses.

Having read Eli's (So Loverly) rave over the SilkyGirl Hi-Definition Waterproof Mascara, I was game to try. While I wouldn't pay over a hundred Ringgit for a Diorshow mascara, I have no problem paying less than RM20 for a mascara that supposedly gives a similar effect.

Let's just say I was impressed. Read on.

I appreciate that even though this mascara has such an affordable price, the folks at Silkygirl actually bothered to give us a non-generic brush. The stubby silicone bristles allow me to get the brush very close to my lash line to build up the volume and the bulb-like portion is great for coating the corner lashes as well as the bottom lashes.

Ask me if this compares to Diorshow, I'll say no because from my experience, Diorshow (original one) gives quite a good amount of volume that the SilkyGirl Hi-Definition mascara lacks. However, SilkyGirl does give me some reasonable lengthening, the bristles separated my lashes well and it keeps a curl up. All-in-all, it's a reliable day-to-day mascara. But that's just because I crave dramatic volume when it comes to mascaras.

This mascara did fail in terms of being waterproof. I've learned my lesson to not wear this mascara when I know I'll be working out later in the day because my sweat is gonna get it off. On the plus side, this mascara is a lot easier to remove compared to some of my other waterproof mascaras.

SilkyGirl Hi-Definition Waterproof Mascara retails for RM18.90. I got mine at 20% discount for only RM15.

I used the same one before, they are great for lengthening and lash separating. Ok2 in terms of volume. However, the main concern for me is that they dried out in the tube quite fast, considering that i do nout use the masacara everyday and they dried out in less then 5 months time. maybe i bought the old one? hmm.. just sharing here :)

senyorita_usha: Thanks for sharing! I've only had mine for a month so I can't comment on it in terms of how soon it dries out. But then again. mascara generally do dry out in about 3-4 months time whether used or not. Of course, there are some mascaras that don't dry out as fast!

Score 1 for my enabling-ness! I forgot to remove this before hitting the treadmill and it actually didn't budge. But maybe my sweat has different chemical properties from yours. Hee.

Im quite liking the Silkygirl mascara due to the curve it gave,but I totally have no idea,what does it means by Waterproof,when just a slight sweating will ruins my life? Me hate when someone said "Your mascara transferred to under your eyes. Ladies perhaps?"
