Shiseido Maquillage Full Vision Mascara




I simply had to order the Shiseido Maquillage Full Vision Mascara. The delicate curved brush looked very promising for achieving maximum length and curl, and it didn't disappoint in this regard. The brush is very thin and reaches everywhere- I've gotten used to thicker mascara brushes that don't do much for the lash base. Maquillage Full Vision is definitely a high performer in this aspect, and the super glossy black color is quite impressive.

The issue started a while later with minor flaking and dotting. It wasn't too bad and I was willing to live with that as a 4-hour evening mascara. However, removing it was quite disastrous. my eyes aren't very sensitive and I've never experienced issues with any other mascara, but this Maquillage product just burned. Badly.

I rinsed my eyes with Visine and it was fine after a minute or so. Since I'm insane, I gave it another try, just to make sure the culprit was not my eye makeup remover. The results were the same no matter what I used: Lancome Bi-Facil, Almay pads and Liz Earle cleanser. The other eye makeup items I had on during all the testing were my usual staples- Urban Decay Primer Potion and Bobbi Brown eyeliner and eye shadows.

Half a bottle of Visine later, I've given up on the Full Vision mascara. It's too bad, because I loved the way it held the curl.

Shiseido Maquillage Full Vision Mascara is available from various sites specializing in Japanese and Asian cosmetics. I paid around $38, if I remember correctly.
