Lashem Double Trouble Mascara

I was fortunate to receive products from Lashem. I don't know about you guys, but I have always been curious about this brand! The first time I heard about this brand was in a commercial. An actress talking about how her lashes grew using the serum.
Thankfully, I receive the famous Measurable Difference Lash Gel to try. I also received the Double Trouble Mascara and a tote bag. I will review the Measurable Difference Lash Gel in a future post. For this post, I'm going to review Double Trouble Mascara.
Before I review the mascara, let me show you the tote bag. It's a sturdy, cloth bag with ropes as a handle. The handle reminds me of the "I'm NOT A Plastic bag" bag. Do you remember that bag or am I that old? :X If you can tell, I really like the handle. :)

Now for the review...
Product Review: Lashem Double Trouble Mascara

Where to purchase: Lashem.com
Price: $19.99 for 0.20 fl oz/ 6 mL

Made in USA

Definition on the back: Double Trouble Mascara adds definition & intense dimension for seductive, sultry eyes. One end contains flexible fibers to give you luscious, voluptuous lashes. The other end gives you longer, fuller lashes. Double Trouble Mascara creates the illusion of bigger, bolder, beautiful lashes that go the distance.
Ingredients:
Thoughts: To be honest, I wasn't too sure what to expect. I have never heard of this mascara. The first thing I did is read the description from the box. After reading the description, I was extremely excited! The mascara especially the Lengthening has fibers. One thing I love about Asian mascaras is that they have fibers. You can see the fibers on the wand, as well as, seeing your lashes lengthen as you use the mascara. I was hoping the same for this mascara!

The mascara has two ends.
One end of the mascara is the Volumizing; gives you luscious, voluptuous lashes. This is the first wand you use in the step or you can use it alone. You don't have to use both wands together. It is all up to you. I prefer to use both, but that's me. The first couple of times I used this wand it was on the dry side. I'm not too sure why but after couple of weeks, the wand got moist. It was easier to use when the wand was moist. When it comes to this wand, I did not notice much on my lashes. I think it'll be more noticeable on people with thin lashes especially light hairs.
The other end of the mascara is Lengthening; gives you longer, fuller lashes. This one has short, thin fibers. I can see it lengthening your lashes, but not by much. I think if they had more fibers, you can see the lashes grow. Nevertheless, it still does its job. I also noticed it's very moist. I'm not too sure why compared to the Volumizing. Since it's so moist, it weighed my Asian lashes down. If I had naturally curly lashes, it would have kept my lashes up. Unfortunately, I was born with straight thick lashes. For that reason, I wish they would make it waterproof. It'll be so much better for people like me.

Now for how the mascara looked on me. I used both wands on my lashes.

I noticed my lashes are a bit longer and thicker. I really like how black the mascara was. That definitely was a plus! :)

Pros:
* Contains fibers.
* Gets volume and length at the same time.
* Do not have to use both wands.
* Darkens the lashes black.
* Great for people with naturally curly lashes.

Cons:
* Volumizing was dry.
* Lengthening was moist.
* Holds my lashes down.

Would repurchase: No, unless they make it in waterproof.

I hate getting the dreaded Asian Lash Droop - thanks for the review!

I usually stay away from non-waterproof mascaras. Especially because it weighs lashes down! I love how black this is though! :)

I just put a new video up by the way! Would love if you could check out my blog!

Aw sorry to hear it wasn't a winner. :( Have you tried this mascara with a mascara base/primer? I'm wondering if it would help. I have stick straight lashes too and can't wear mascara without it.

I like Kate mascara base by Kanebo (a Japanese company). It's not sold here unfortunately so I stock up when I'm in Asia.

You can also buy it on eBay:

I hear Shiseido's mascara base is also good but I haven't tried it yet:

Hope this helps! Time for me to go to bed! ;D
