The mascara I’m currently using, only used it twice. One time for work, another for swim.
You can now get NYX brand from Sephora, tHe Spring, Kuching. Previously I reviewed its Jumbo Eye Pencil.
I decided to get NYX Doll Eye Mascara Waterproof Hydrofuge Extreme Jet Black because it’s cheap, less than RM20. Waterproof and smudge proof for normal wear because of the nylon fibers in there. However, it flakes a bit at the end of the day.
Not suitable for swim even it is waterproof. I was wearing my goggle, not as much contact with pool water yet it flakes and it got into my eyes, worst if you have contact lens on (I know, I know… You shouldn’t be wearing contact lens when swimming). Hence, this mascara is not suitable for swim.
No clumps and it sure lengthened and curled but not much. Didn’t add volume too.
Very easy to apply. The formula isn’t too watery or thick. The consistency is just nice.
As for ease of removal, not that easy to remove. It won’t give you panda eyes but rather messy with those flakes which might end up in your eyes. Definitely not contact lens friendly. Anyway, you should remove your contact lens before removing your makeup.
Will I repurchase? No due to the flaking issue. However, it’s is very affordable for everyday usage.
