Review : Holika Holika Magic Pole Mascara

Hello loves!

Here's one interesting mascara that I got from Glamourbox last December. I actually won Php 1,000 worth of GC and used it to acquire this product from Holika Holika...

Holika Holika Magic Pole Mascara
This costs Php 535.00.

This was actually one of the products I got so curious about during the time I attended Holika Holika's branch opening at SM Fairview.

Here are labels of the packaging containing product description, ingredients list and other important info about the mascara:

I'm guessing this meant that it doesn't smudge, it's waterproof, it's very black, and it keeps your lashes curled or just magically curls your lashes upon application. :P

When you spread out the box, you get a step by step procedure on how to use it. Unfortunately, I can't read the characters. :P

But just to add some more info regarding this particular mascara, here's further descriptions from the website:

Goodbye to clumpy volume! Hello to sleek power volume! The “impact stick” coats every single eyelash for a maximum volumizing effect! The “magic ball” brushes all over for sleek lengthening effect! Between the “magic stick” and the porous “sponge ball” powder, you will get sleek, powerful volume instead of messy clumps! Put on a magic spell on your eyelashes with the “magic ball”! Create a stronger impact with this dark black color! Anyone can become a magician of eyelashes with the “magic stick” mascara and the “magic ball”! Achieve triple power volume at the center of your eyelashes! The deep dark black color will add charm to your eyelashes to help you make a stronger impact with your eyes. SIZE:  9ml

Packaging is like-fairytale like but also edgy at the same time.


But what makes it more unique is the wand!


The spherical shape at the tip of this mascara wand is pretty new to me.


What does this "magic ball" do? It helps in separating the lashes so they won't clump together and it also makes application easier on the shorter lashes at the corners of the eye lash line.

So let's see how it works, shall we?

Bare eyes

Curled lashes

One coat

Two coats

With one coat, the lashes looked amazing. It maintained my curled lashes, it is very black and it gave my lashes extra length and volume. But with my second coat, I did experience small clumping and even the spider leg look. At least my lashes stayed curled even if it looked too thick already. :P

This mascara is really good for a whole day makeup. I don't encounter the "panda eyes" or smudging. I'm impressed on how it held my lashes curled and how it stayed clean and very black the whole day.

What I LIKE:

 - Waterproof
- Keeps my lashes curled
- Very black
- No strong chemical scent
- Lovely packaging
- Unique spherical wand
- Volumizing and a little lengthening
- Easy application at the lower lash line and the corner lashes

What I'm NEUTRAL about:

- Price
- Holika Holika only has few physical branches but you can always order online via Lazada or Glamourbox

What I DON'T LIKE:

- Multiple coats may lead to a little clumping... One coat is honestly just enough to make your lashes more gorgeous!

Would I buy again? I probably will. It works great and looks great! My friends who saw me using it were amazed with its unique wand. :)

So what are your thoughts on the Holika Holika Magic Pole Mascara?
Have you tried it yet? Do you know other mascaras with unique wand shapes?


Cheers,
DAWN

  1. It's been a while since I bumped into your blog sis Dawn and I missed it! I want to try Holika Holika products too but sadly they don't have branch in my area. :( The wand of this mascara is like a magic wand LOL so cute!!! I like the fact that it doesn't smudge but the clumping is a no no for me.
