This mascara is lauched in August 2011 and it is the latest addition to Cyber Colors (the mega hit Japanese cosmetics brand).Formulated with the latest in mascara technology, Cyber Colors Ex Volume Waterproof Mascara promises to deliver 18 hours long curl & volume for your lashes.

Specially designed for Asian, the Cyber Colors Ex Volume Waterproof Mascara has an unique flexible wand. This will allow user to follow her lash line easily so that every lashes can be reached and comb thoroughly..

What can this mascara do for your lashes?

Cyber Colors Ex Volume Waterproof Mascara’s distinctive features are:

 Extra Volume
With Candelilla Wax Extract, the mascara can now cover and curl the individual lashes by 75° upwards instantly. The unique formula will also allow your lashes to look soft and volumetric at the same time.

Instant dry and waterproof

As the mascara will dries instant and it is waterproof; you need not worry about smudges due to melting action from water, sweat and sebum

Nourishing Formula

This Mascara costs $25.90 (8g) and available exclusively at all Sa Sa Stores.

Correct Way of Using the Wand

The brush is designed in a way that it has 2 sides: The Brush and Comb sides.

Use the Brush side to spread the mascara. Upon coating, lashes will appear more Vroomz instantly.

Use the comb side to curl your lashes. As the wand is flexible, curls will be optimized

It’s Experiment time!

My review isn’t complete without pictures of my lashes after application.
Here you go…

Note that i used the mascara on my Upper and Lower lashes
**2 coats on Upper Lashes
1 coat on Lower Lashes

My Left Eye (with double eyelid)

See how obvious are the curls on my upper lashes (i did not even kiap my lashes with a curler)..
Lower lashes are long & obvious.

My Right Eye (Single eyelid with tons of fats)

Curls are not so obvious as i don’t have double eyelid on my right eye…
Lower lashes are long & obvious.

With eye closed

Long lashes without any clumps.

My Verdict

Texture: This mascara is on the ‘more moisturized’ side so application will be a breeze. Despite being moist, it dries up instantly so even if you blink while applying your mascara, it won’t mess up your make up. 2 layers of coating will be sufficient to volume and curl your lashes.. Despite multiple layers, it won’t result in clumps and mascara is non-sticky… The mascara is also BLACK enough so it will create more volume on your lashes.

Brush: This mascara has the best wand that i have ever used.. The comb has very fine bristle like design so i can coat all my lashes easily. Also, the wand is highly flexible so that i can tilt it and curl my lashes better without worrying that i will break the wand.. Also, the bristle / comb will separate my lashes which results in more even application.

Staying Power: I don’t know if it is due to my oilier eyelids as i have stopped my acne medication (so oil production will go back to normal) but i think that this mascara will smudge easier.. I had this mascara on at 7am and by 1pm i will have some stains on my lower eye area. Maybelline Falsies seems to be more long-lasting on my lashes as i will only have stains at about 3pm. This mascara has long-lasting curling power as the curls on my left eye stays on till i remove my make-up at night (Mascara can be easily removed by any eye-makeup removal)

Will certainly recommend this mascara to people who wants one with good curling power + volume.

**P/S: Sa Sa has a new outlet at Changi City Point so check it out when you are free… 🙂

Take care everyone!
