Review : Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara

Besides eyeliner, I would say mascara is the next important beauty product for me. People often said eyes are window to your soul hence I always think a proper minimum eye makeup (eyeliner&mascara) is a must for all girls because that is the first thing people notice when they look at you. People with bright eyes (with the help of eyeliner and mascara) gives people the impression of this person is lively & awake and not a sleepy head (eventhough you are one!)

In Japan, girls like to have the big eyes effect because it is kawaii (i.e cute) and they want to look like those anime character. So mascara is definitely a must have item in their makeup routine!

Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl mascara comes with very cute pink packaging with the signature doll having really long eyelashes. I read that this mascara is voted #1 as the top mascara 2 years in a row on Cosme in Japan. So definitely I am going to test this out and see how does it works!

It claims that it extends your eyeslahses t0 120% (compare to exisiting product).

The instuction (in Japanese) behind the packaging.

TIPS to apply mascara

1) Put the mascara brush on the base of your eyeslashes and apply the mascara raising the eyelashes.

2) I would suggest you to curl your eyelashes with curler to get longer lasting upward curls. And eyelashes curls would look nicer compare you apply it directly on the eyelashes.

3) For the maximum effect, it is advisable to stir (twist action) the liquid well with the brush before use. You should not dip in and out the mascara too often (unnecessarily) as it would create more air bubbles in the mascara which will dry out the mascara faster.

Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl mascara promises :-

1) Seperated lashes that looked glossy and free from any clumps and globs.
2) Stay curled upward for many hours.
3) Water proof that are resistent to tears, sweat, water and sebum
4) The curled brush easily curls lashes up along the edge of the eyes
5) Dramatically lengthening effect up to 120% (compare to exisiting product)

The design of the curved brush is supposed to lift up our lashes from the base along the edge of the eyes and apply just the right amount of fibers to the lashes.

I read that it also contains Chamomile extract (a moisturizing ingredient) and Camellia oil (emollient ingredient) to protect lashes from damage.

Before & After

I ♥ the lengtening effect!

Review : I applied 2 layers of the Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl mascara in Black and I am already happy with the lenghtening effect, it looked naturally lengthen as if it is my own eyelashes. The curved brush design is great and it does not pick up too much fiber while coating the right amount of fiber at my eyelashes, the fiber is light and stay on the lashes without any smudges the whole day. I can feel my eyelashes become harden once I brushed the mascara on it and I think that makes it stayed curled the whole day. The only thing I don't really like is that it is a little bit hard to remove compare with my usual mascara. Overall it is a great mascara to use, easy to apply to get the lengtening effect without needing to put a lot of effort.

Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl mascara is sold at RM49.90 and available at Sasa and selected Watsons stores.

Review : Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner N in Jet Black

Eyeliner is one of my must beauty item in my daily life. Because with eyeliner, my eyes look instantly defined, brighten up and awake!

From the recent Kiss Me event, I was given this Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner N to try. Kiss Me is a very popular drug store cosmetic brands in Japan has recently enter the Malaysia market!

The name Kiss Me Heroine Make Series was created in reference to the word “heroine” which refers to a woman who is a main character in a movie, TV, etc. She is supposed to remain beautiful at all times in the story even if she weeps or gets caught in the rain. As this a makeup series for women who aim to become such a heroine, they named it “Heroine Make.”

Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner N in #01 Jet Black is an improved formula which still provides easy drawing and easy removal like the previous version. Additionally it improves on its blackness, durability and gives a longer lasting finish compare to the previous version.

This new formula eyeliner claims :-

1) Waterproof to sweat, tears,water and sebum

- The doll is a signature for Kiss Me products, here she is crying and is showing that even she is crying her eyeliner stays on beautifully on her which bring out the meaning this is a waterproof eyeliner.

2) It has more than 130% blackness compare to their exisiting product

-This new Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner N has more black pigment and it is 130% darker than the existing product!

3) Easy to draw ultra thin brush at only 0.1mm wide tip

This 0.1mm elastic ultra thin brush promises that the thinnest line along the eyelash bases and upward lines around rhe outer corner of the eyes can be drawed easily.

4) Easily removed by lukewarm water
-It can be easily removed by lukewarm water despite the long-lasing finish!

The ingredients.

The Chamomile extract and saxifrage extract are used here as they are gentle and give moisture to the skin.

Swatch on the hand.

The black colour looked pigmented to me and I am pretty happy with it.

TIPS : Put a mirror below your chin and look down while pulling the skin (with finger) at the outer eye lightly to the side to tighten the skin before drawing the eyeliner. Draw a line first and slowly build up the intensity and thickness up to your preference.

It is pretty simple to draw a thin line with Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner N 0.1mm wide brush tip. I have no problem in using and controling the liquid eyeliner asnowadays I only use liquid eyeliner.Remember there is no easy way to learn how to use eyeliner but practise makes perfect!

The real test of Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner N

Test : I put my hands with the eyeliner swatch under the running water tap for a minute.

Result : Except for the super fine lines I drawed smudge a little bit, the other colour & lines stay on quite well.

I went further to test the product to see if it's tear proof!

Well of course I didn't actually cry here but used eyedrop to test. I blinked my eyes few times to let the eyedrop flowed down on my cheek naturally and the eyeliner line still stay on pretty well on my eyes!

Review : The eyeliner stay on my eyelid whole day despite the sweat I had in the afternoon. However as I do not have oily eyelid, I could not confirm whether this is sebum proof eyeliner. Therefore I am pretty happy with Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner N (Jet Black) as it fulfilled all its claims and pass all my test.
