I'm BACK!!!! haha.. I want to thank everyone who helped me get through the bar exams. I will do a separate post about my bar exams experience. wahh.. I actually want to have a temporary amnesia for a while. I don't want to think of my mistakes. I just want to pray and believe.
Moving on, I received this mascara months ago. I am very sorry for the delayed review of this. When I got this mascara, I hurriedly tried it on. I was a bit disappointed.
Why? Look at this picture:
Why? Look at this picture:
It made my lashes look like spider's feet. right? It weighed down my lashes too. The next thing I know, I threw this mascara in my drawer and did not dare use it at all. I have short and sparse lashes. I want a mascara that lengthens and gives volume to my lashes.
I suddenly realized, that although this mascara has a wet formula, it also has a thick consistency. Can you see? It seems as if it is infused with fibers. I tried it again. The results? REMARKABLE!
STEP 1 of the Mascara:
Step 2 of the Mascara:
(my skin looks all dry and wrinkled!! wahhh..)
The first step of the Yanqina mascara just enhanced my natural lashes and it did a great job of separating and defining my lashes. When I applied the Step 2, it made me look like I am wearing falsies! YEY
How did I achieve this sky high lashes (or tirik na tirik lashes?haha) ?
I simply let the Yanqina mascara to dry before applying another coat and loads more coat.. haha
That's it. Plus I followed Eki's tips in one of her videos.
The yanqina volumizer mascara costs $20.85. Quite pricey for my taste.

I was really confused when I got this mascara. I thought that it has two wands. After a while, I just realized how dumb I was. Of course the rule is: no two things can occupy the same space at the same time.I know you are also wondering why is there a step 1 and step two, if there is only one mascara product and only one wand too. There is a huge difference in using step 1 or step two and using both steps. :D
When you use the step 1. The mascara wand is not loaded with the product because the second wand filters and removes the excess product. When you use the step 2, obviously, it is loaded with more product.
My take on this mascara? I simply love it.
Again, it all boils down to proper application.
Why I love the Yanqina Mascara?
- It made my natural lashes looks as if they are falsies. It lengthens and volumizes my lashes gorgeously. This is very evident on my pictures right?
- It can hold my curl for hours.
- It is very easy to remove.
What I do not like about the Yanqina Mascara?
- I cannot use this mascara and achieve the results that I want when I am in a hurry.
- It does not dry easily.
- It can get clumpy because of its formula.
- Not sold locally.
- Quite Pricey for me.
