Review: Apple mascara

HOLY CRAP!! I just found my HG mascara!! It's a miracle!!

I don't know anyone with WORSE lashes than me, but I guarantee you that it takes some hardcore mascara to help my lashes to stay curled and make the curls last (very important, most mascaras help my lashes to curl for like 5 mins, then it goes straight).

Here's the detailed review:



Name: Apple Super Long Lash

Country of Origin
: Mexico

Price: 3 for $13 including shipping on Ebay

Where to buy: I got mine from Ebay, so I don't know where else to get it. Mexico? LOL!
Claims: "conditions, promotes growth and gives you volume for thicker longer lashes! "

Packaging: Nothing special, it basically reflects what color the mascara is.

Brush: To me it looks like the Maybeline Great Lash mascara, but works SOOO much better!

Pros:
--It's the only mascara that makes my lashes as curled/curlier after I used the lash curler.
--My lashes stay curled ALL day long!
--Non-smudging, even though it's not waterproof
--Can we say "CHEAP"?
--No clumping, no spider legs
--Multiple colors to choose from, mine is black black, it's REALLY dark
--Makes your lashes really soft and shiny
--Lengthening!!

Cons:
--Not readily available, only sold on ebay...unless someone wants to cross the border to get everyone a few of these?
--The texture is a little on the dry side, it's not as wet as...let's say L'oreal Voluminious or Maybelline Great lash
--The packaging is kinda ugly and the brush is boring
--not really voluminzing

Will I re-purchase? To the hell YES!!!

Overall rating: 5 out of 5!

Proof that this is a miracle worker:

Here's my naked eye, no curling, nothing....It's really pathetic. You have to use a magnifying glass to see them. I have the true Asian lashes.



Here's it curled...:


(not curled on left, curled on right)


...using this:


After mascara:




See how curled they are?


With my eyes done...Excuse the brows, haven't done that yet.



I bought from mxmascaralady on Ebay. Their service is great! I received my product within like 2 days, and their price is unbeatable! I strongly recommend them!

Anyway, it's 2:30am, and I have a presentation tomorrow. I don't want ot look like a panda. I will be back tomorrow. Good night!

Love,
Tao

Hi! I used this mascara before, but I LOVE one called IM mascara, has mamey oil, Im from Mexico, so I know about it haha, my sister and I start using the IM years ago,and that help to grow our eyelashes, and when it dries you just put it (closed) for 5 min in a glass with hot water, and is soft again! kayab9 from youtube!

Hi Tao:

HEY Tao,

You can find the apple mascaras really easily in America. They can usually be found in dollar stores.

MakeupByRenRen said...

wow you are the queen of deals!

rasilla said...

kk, ive been eying this from the soompi forums...but never got around to trying it out~
it does seem to work really well for you~ so far ive been using lash stiletto...and have been liking it.
anyway great review! checking out the ebay store now...

ko0ty said...

Wow I gotta try that stuff. I have hopeless, short and stick straight Asian lashes like you and I've just given up on them. I just wear falsies now if I want long lashes.

P-ham said...

i luv cheap mascaras that work! expensive mascaras (even if they're great) aren't worth it to me. ur blue liner is like WOW, so runway! i'm glad u found this mascara^_^

mayaari said...

pretty impressive for the price!

angie519 said...

Awwwww yaay! Your lashes do look super long and curled! I think your lashes are actually long, they aren't short! They just appear sparse. Mine are short and sparse >.<

How did you decide to start looking into mascaras from Mexico?! What a great find!!

fuzkittie said...

Wow it really works well!! :D

Elisa said...

OOooOOOo.. interesting.. My holy grail mascara is from Katie B! You should try that out too!! Love the bold blue liner!!!

Ji said...

Wow that´s cheap!!! And it really seems to curl well!<3

EyezNBlush said...

Here in southern california you can get these mascaras at indoor swapmeets etc a lot of beauty salons around here sell them since we have a large Latino/Mexican community. In Mexico they sell these for $1. They have other kinds as well...maybe if i get a hold of a few I can send you some...not sure if they are exactly the same as these but they are very similar...

и¡†α said...

OMG! that mascara is like less than a dollar here in Mexico, its funny because I dont like it :S I dont know it doesnt work for me but if it does for you congratulations!

Oh and in case that you need more of that mascara let me know I'd be more than happy to send them to you.

DonaGothika said...

I officially have worse lashes than you! LOL! I have stub-tastic lashes that bunch up and occassionally stick out at funny angles---And they have a hobby . . .It's called "let's poke her in the eye". . .Every few months I have to go in with a nail clipper and remind them who's boss! I must look in to this apple mascara Thanks for sharing!

Katrina said...

i heard about this mascara and ignored it! i have to try it now. they sell this at my nearest 99cents store!!

Babylard said...

must... buy!!! i've been using MAC mascaras and they are okay. btw, where do u get those sparkly bon bon eyeshadows? they look hot on you mama

Zelly said...

Hi Tao!

I've read about this mascara somewhere and I was waiting for someone's review on it. I trust your judgement so I went ahead and got them! I know I'll definately love them! I have asian eyes too! The things we deal with I tell you! haha...

Thanks, Tao! I've bought it from ebay after reading your review 3 for $13 the ones with Mamey oil. I like it a lot. It's competing with my Shiseido Lasting Lift Mascara. If anyone wants to try but don't want to get 3 at one time I have my spare 2 up for swap on Makeupalley.com. My User name is Narita23.
Thanks again for sharing! I love you!

I love the Apple brand also. It's the only thing that works for me and makes my long, thin eyelashes look like something! I find mine at a store called Fashion 5 for 2 bucks each, and they have quite the variety. I really like the avocado one! I've also seen it at the 5 dollar store for the same price!

There is more Mexican mascaras on Ebay like the famous PROSA MASCARA, AND ZAN ZUZI, AND IM MASCARAS. Apple is good but there are other great ones

Asa said...

I ADORE the packaging. i bought one in brown after ur recommendation :D

got to be careful with those apple mascaras they have to be from Mexico and fresh. the ones in the usa stores are very old and they are fakes. Just a tidbit of information cause there are alot of wanna be's so best to buy from someone that says they are from Mexico City. I heard Prosa and Zan Zusi is fabulous too!

Anonymous said...

I actually used the green and pink one and I love it.
I saw their web page and they have very good cosmetics. Too bad the only ones I've seen are the mascaras that you can find in California for $1, and they are not fake, the only thing is that they are dry. I mean who would bother to make a fake of a product that people can find for for $1.
I want to try the other mascaras ^ ^

I use IM with Mamey oil and I can only find it mexico (for a less price...usually $2.00 a bottle). I hooked! lol

Hi everyone I was so happy to see that a few people know about IM mascara. For all of you that like this product you won't have to look any further. I have the representation of the mascara here in the states, so my website will be up very soon so you can order safley your mascara knowing it comes directly from the company.
I will keep you posted!
