'Magnetic Mascara' Review

After seeing a few rave reviews and beautiful before-and-after pictures about 'Magnetic Mascara', I decided to find out more... It's made by a brand called Santhilea, which I had never heard of before, and it seems that this product is the only one that they make. I am a huge mascara lover, and after hearing that this new take on a fibre mascara is 'ahhh-mazing' from a number of my favourite bloggers, I thought it was a must-try.
And the rave reviews weren't lying...
This mascara really is amazing. It leaves your lashes looking incredibly long, voluminous and luscious. I've used fibre-based lashes in the past and haven't been overly impressed (think spider-leg-lashes!) but this three step process really works. As well as taking your natural lashes to the max, it also claims to be much lighter than normal mascara, so it's easier to remove, while also being longer-wearing.
Step 1 is to apply one coat of the magnetic mascara, while it's still wet, Step 2 is to build up a couple of layers of the lash builder fibres. 
I say a couple of layers, as it's best to apply the fibres lightly and build them up to avoid getting any in your eyes, or have them clump-up on you! The final step is to apply another coat of the mascara, once the first two coats have dried. 

As you can see... the results are really beautiful. If you love the look of doll-eye lashes but aren't the biggest fan of wearing falsies, then this is definitely the choice for you!

Before
After


It is on the pricey side at £24.99, so up there with tempting offerings from YSL, Dior & Chanel... Personally, if I had to choose one mascara for every day, it wouldn't be this one. I think it's a little too fussy for everyday use (it takes over twice as long to apply compared to regular mascara) but I'll definitely use it for special occasions in place of wearing false lashes or getting lash extensions.

If you do like the look of this mascara, you can pick it up from Cult Beauty here.

  2. I like the general idea but I tried MUA's mascara in shade 4 which is a brown also containing fibres. All in all I hated the thing. I do not like the look of funky, hairy looking lashes. Especially the ends tend to go kind of funny.... So no way I would pay Ł25 for almost the same thing.

  3. I've never heard of the brand Santhilea but, they seem great! The mascara looks great as I prefer mascara that's lengthening and doesn't clump! Thanks for the review Fleur! XX.

  4. This looks so amazing! I've seen so many great reviews for this mascara as well and I really want to try it but it is a bit pricy for me! I think I'll just stick to individual false lashes for special occasions

  7. Love it and have you dyed your hair brown because in the picture your hair looks brown?

  8. Does it last well in the day? Did you get any of the product in your eye? I find with these ones it can be a little messy, and you need to take your time to really make them work.

  17. My goodness, those are amazing results! I agree with you that I don't know if I could use that as an everyday mascara, but under the right circumstances it might still be a worthwhile investment.. maybe even for my wedding next year? Lovely, thanks for sharing!

  19. I like that they don't really look clumpy either since I absolutely hate spidery/clumpy lashes! They really do give that doll-eyed look. Does it flake off or smear at all? That would be the deal breaker for me for the item especially at that price, but if it doesn't then I would def take it into consideration!

    k.f.c.

  20. I have seen this mascara on other blogs as well....but yes it does seem worth the extra money as your lashes *leg length!*
