Battle Mascara 7: Fairydrops Tokyo Scandal Queen Mascara


I've been wanting to try a high-end mascara for a while, just to see what all the excitement is about.  So I went to Sephora and picked this up:  Fairydrops Scandal Queen Mascara.

It comes in a very eye-catching package and it certainly looks very promising!

I only just figured out how to make my lashes stand out, and I think that the Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus did just that.  So I have high expectations for this Fairydrops Scandal Queen Mascara.  I think I paid $24 at Sephora.



The box says that this wand is unique.  But the 3-balls shaped (don't get thoughts, now), isn't that unique.  The NYX Doll Eye mascara (Battle Mascara 1 and 2) I had before also had a similarly shaped wand.  I think the uniqueness comes from the curve of the wand itself.  It's supposed to catch your lashes and coat and curl at the same time.

Battle Mascara 7: Fairydrops Scandal Queen vs Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus.

Keeping in mind that mascaras probably work differently for different peoples, I have to conclude that I am personally not impressed with the Fairydrops Scandal Queen mascara, other than for it's smudge-proof-ness.

Here are some pictures of my lashes with Fairydrops.

 Not impressed.

Not as much volume or length as the MM mascara.

 Lashes straightened out and most of the curl got lost.

Just a reminder, here's a picture of my lashes with Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus.

 You can see how curled my lashes remained!

 Final thoughts:  I am really disappointed.  I don't think that paying $24.00 for the Fairydrops mascara was worth it in my book.  I think I'm just going to stock up on Majolica Majorca's Lash Expander Frame Plus the next time I go to Taiwan.  For the price of one Fairydrops, I could have gotten 3 or 4 MMs.  For my purposes, I'm sure I don't need to look any further.

Have you tried Fairydrops Scandal Queen and did you have a different experience?

I was so close to purchasing this mascara too! Thanks for the post! I also love the MJ Lash Enamel Glamour Volume On. I lost my tube and I dont have any backups but its something I definitely recommend you try! Luckily I still have a few Frame pluses to hold me over haha

MJ Lash Enamel Glamour Volume On is another Asia-only mascara, I assume? LOL, okay, I'll be on the look out when I head back to Taiwan! I think the MM Frame Pluses are definitely a favorite among beauty bloggers! ^_^

I can now cross this mascara off my wish-list. Thank you for this great review!

I have yet to find an HG mascara. =(

Hi Linh! Have you ever tried any of the Majolica Majorca mascaras? If not, I think you might like the Lash Expander Frame Plus mascaras. I gave my last tube to a co-worker and she loves it so much she wants a bulk box of them the next time I go to Taiwan (Sept.). If I get my hands on them and you still haven't had the chance to try it out, I'll send you one. :)

Lash Enamel Glamour Volume On is also part of the Majorlica Majorca line. I wish I did a review of it before I lost it but it is on par with Frame Plus!

Oh really?! On par with frame plus! I really really gotta check it out. Do you happen to know what the wand is shaped like? After trying the rubber bristles and the frame plus comb, I'm having a hard time transitioning back to fiber bristles... very very difficult time. But I'll try anything if it performs well! :-)
