Review: Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes Mascara8:58:00 AM
I am a self-proclaimed Mascara Junkie ;p
I love mascaras and have tried a few different types and brands of mascara in search of a new favorite one that can fulfill all my needs. My needs are (based on it's level of importance):
1. Bold / Blackest
4. Water Resistant
5. No Clump
6. Easy to clean
Many mascaras I've tried doesn't usually fulfilled all six, sometimes the ad says "bold" but the truth is it doesn't really give you that bold look you had in mind. I usually end up wearing the blackest and most bold mascara I have and then layered it with another mascara that have lengthening effects, so yes I sometimes have to use two different mascaras just to achieve all the results I wanted.
But now I have found one ultimate mascara that can give me all six results in just one product!
Let me introduce you to ...
High Precision Panoramic Mascara
I was told about this mascara by Endy who raved about it during the Givenchy event a little while ago, being a mascara junkie I of course got really curios, and when I found out that I got a discount voucher for any Givenchy product during the event I immediatley bought this mascara in black ;)
The price was IDR 320.000 but I got a voucher of IDR 200.000 so that means I got this baby for only IDR 120.000 !!
The unique little round wand is what interests me the most. I'm up to unique weird things, the one that makes it stood out from the other. There's an explanation on the mini brochure inside the box that explains about this unique wand and why this wand shape can gives you the "360* panoramic" result.
This mascara surely fulfilled all six demands that I posted above. It does gives you a bold black color, it really thickens your lashes, it really lengthens your lashes, it doesn't clump, it's water-resistant, and it's surprisingly easy to clean with your usual eye makeup remover.
When you see the unusual shape of the wand you would think it might get difficult to use it, but surprisingly it's not!
It's easy to use by following the "how-to" on the brochure, and it gives instant result by just one stroke! That's how amazing this mascara is!

Here's how the mascara looked like on my eyes after just one stroke / one layer of mascara:
See how it lengthens and thickens my lashes in just one layer? It really does open my eyes. And if I use 2 or 3 layers it would give me a bold look that I'm looking for, I love it! You get all you ever wanted in a mascara!
It is nonetheless pricey, but the result is worth the price :)
The only cons from this mascara is how it dries up rather quickly even in it's tube. So once you open this mascara I suggest you use it often otherwise it will dries up rather quickly if you didn't use it for a long time. Well I guess there's really nothing perfect in this world ;p

Overall, this is still the best mascara so far because it gives me all that I want in a mascara, it really opens up my eyes and it's perfect for bold eye look. It's waterproof but it's easy to clean with proper soap / remover. I would buy it again if they have a discount promo ;p
I also added this mascara as one of my favorites as in my monthly favorites for May, you can read about it and the rest of my May Favorites here.
