Talika takes its legendary Lipocils range one step further with their newest product: the Talika Lipocils & Black.
I actually received this back in January. The Lipocils & Black mascara is the newest Talika product to be launched this month, so I am lucky enough to be able to try it before it hits the market.
This unique product is an eyelash growth gel mascara duo. Unlike other mascaras, this one has double-sided wands. One side is the Lipocils, the classic conditioning formula that grows instant lashes naturally longer and fuller; while on the other side, the keratin-stimulating mascara provides instant results of a longer, deep black volumized lashes.
So this is another two-in-one product, a mascara + eyelash care treatment in one product, which is very practical to bring everywhere especially when traveling. This product combines the famous Lipocils (the all natural eyelash growth treatment) + an exclusive Talika mascara.
If you have read my previous review on the famous Talika Lipocils, then you might have probably known how the Lipocils created amazing results in growing and lengthening my eyelashes, as well as keeping them healthy, all in just 28 days.
I was pretty excited when Talika came up with a solution of providing a product that has the Lipocils PLUS a blackest black mascara. Such a killer duo!
The left one is the Lipocils wand, and the right one is the mascara wand
The mascara itself claims to have the darkest of black color, in other words: the blackest mascara amongst all other popular mascara. It can creates gorgeous deep black effect, lengthens, volumize, and curls instantly. Perfect for those who wants a longer, darker, thicker, and simply divine lashes.
I tried comparing it to my other mascara from a very popular brand (M*yb**ine), and I can say that this Talika Lipocils & Black mascara is definitely the blackest one ^__^
The formula is also very thick so it really creates the bold black effect on your lashes. See below picture for comparison:
You can see which one is the blackest from the 2 swatches above, right?
Yes, it's the bottom one.
And yes, the bottom one is the Talika Lipocils & Black ;)
My first impression when I used this mascara for the first time was: "WOW, look at those lashes!".
I did get a very prominent results on how black and long my eyelashes was when I used it the first time. So far, I've been using it almost daily and I love how it really makes my thin eyelashes looks thicker and bolder. It also curled my lashes perfectly and I did not have to swipe the mascara many times to get the bold look, because a few swipes of Lipocils & Black would suffice ;)
Let's see the "Before" and "After" photos so you can see how it transformed my eyes from boring to dazzling ;p

After wearing the Lipocils & Black on both lashes:
I firstly used the Lipocils wand first, and spread the formula on the roots of my lashes. Then I wait for a few minutes before putting on the mascara wand. Make sure to always clean your lashes first before applying the Lipocils.
So far, I've been liking this mascara I did notice that because of the really black formula, this tends to smear a bit during application if you're not careful enough, so if you're clumsy like me, you better not do it in a hurry or you'll smeared the mascara ^o^
Once worn, the mascara won't budge, smeared, or smudged on my eyelids. From my experience, the curl would also stays in place.
NOTE: Due to the thick formula, it's better to clean it with an eye makeup remover.
For those of you who'd like to know the ingredients:

Overall, since I love two-in-one products so this Lipocils-Mascara duo is an easy feat for me, I have put it in my two-in-one products recommendations list ;p
I like the practicality of having an eyelash growth treatment (Lipocils) and a mascara in one product, so that means less products to carry on my makeup bag. Although I have to be careful in applying it to prevent smearing (because I'm clumsy like that ;p), but I still love this mascara because of the dark deep black color payout. I also love how it lengthens, thickens, and curls my lashes in an instant, and the curls stays longer too. Super!
I don't have any info on the price of this one because it hasn't been officially launched yet, but if you're like me who loves to pay attention to eyelashes and/or if you're looking for a blackest black mascara with an added bonus of an eyelash treatment gel, then this is for you :)
