Beauty Budget Series: Fashion 21 Double Up Mascara

One of the makeup products that I took granted for a long time was mascara. I don't know, I just never felt the need to apply mascara on a daily basis. I know a handful of ladies who can't leave the house without it. I wasn't one of them. But all of that changed last year when I realised that I have at least 10 mascaras (both brand-new and used) on my vanity. I had to carelessly use them.

One of the mascaras that I keep on going back to is locally made! I bought this because a lot of local Youtubers raved about this. See, this is why I stopped watching Youtube videos.

A flick of this mascara wand can change your lashes dramatically.

I never paid attention much to a mascara comb but from what I remember, this is the first time I've seen a mascara comb like this. The comb really separates the lashes giving you longer lashes. The end of the comb can also coat your short lashes, the ones near the tear ducts with breeze!

I'm still not a hardcore mascara user but I now see why women can't leave the house without it. I've been sleeping late and waking up early and applying mascara on my lashes really gives me that awake look (in a good way, of course).

One coat of Fashion 21 Double Up Mascara. One coat!

Sad lashes no more!

I only apply one coat of mascara on my lashes as I just want my lashes curled the whole day. My sparse lashes are good with one coat. 

Fashion 21 Double Up Mascara is a lengthening mascara. No matter how many coats you apply, it can't give you volume. I'm more about the length than the volume which is why I love this mascara! It doesn't give me panda eyes, thank God! That said, it makes it better than other imported brand of mascaras that I've tried. You also don't have to worry about removing this as this can easily be removed. Cream or makeup remover wipes, your call and it's gone!

Don't you love the illusion of longer lashes? I do.

Once I finish my mascaraSSSSSS, I will definitely re-purchase this mascara! For only PhP225, this gives me the length that I want! I've tried high-end ones but never repurchased them because I wasn't satisfied and didn't see the hype. But this mascara changed my mind!

Fashion 21 is available at SM Department Stores, Watsons, and Landmark. Let me know if you've tried this by leavings your comments below. I want to know if you love this mascara, too!

Follow me! No? Yes? Yey!


  1. In fairness,Haba ng lashes niyo.Mas more on length kayo or volume?Ako kasi volume but other mascara mabigat when applied,naexperienced nyo na?

  2. Length and volume sana. Pero mas priority ko ang length :)

  3. Ang hirap maglagay ng mascara.Natry ko lang from other local brand na gamit ng sister ko pero mahapadi sa mata.Di ko maexplain basta medyo mahapdi tapos ang bigat pa sa mata. Haha. Ang linis ng pagkaapply mo ng mascara:) This one ba walang hapdi? Will definitely recommend this to my younge sister. Mahilig sya sa mascara kasi.Thanks:)

  4. Baka expired na yung mascara? Not sure. hindi mahapdi ito. Normal lang :)

  5. Di ko sure kung expired na yun. Haha. Basta ko lang ginamit e. Am planning na rin mag aral how to apply makeups soon. Eto na unang itatry ko na mascara.Thank you:)

  6. maybe the secret is always on the wand! i love avon magnify but it was a limited edition! kahit yung lower lashes ko nalalagyan ko ng mascara with ease..

  7. Naku! Was never able to try that :)

    I love mascaras that seperates eyelashes.
    Same here! :) Right now I have three mascaras on my kit that I used interchangeably. I like to collect mascaras with different shaped and sized wands since it serve different and specific purposes, it’s really important to choose the right one for our eyelashes and needs. Like me, I prefer the thick eyelashes.

  9. sayang nga po ms gem sana kahit yung wand naitabi ko huhu =(

  10. Thanks for showing the effect of this local mascara! I've been reading good reviews about it and will try it soon. It's on my list of things to buy kapag nakapunta ulit ako sa mga 3-Day Sales. I may have missed it, but is it waterproof? Pawisin kasi ako lalo na ang init ngayon :)

    My holy grail mascara was the L'Oreal Telescopic, kayalang phased out na :( This looks like a good replacement, and it's more affordable pa. Thanks for the review!

  11. Yup, I think waterproof naman. I don't recall na nagtransfer to sa lids and eyebags ko hehe :)

    Hi Ms. Gem! I just want to inform you that this review really came to the rescue just when my make-up budget is on its low. :) My current mascara itches my eyes and I'm really on a search for an affordable yet worth it product. Will definitely try this mascara! I just discovered your blog and I was really glad that you also do reviews here from local brands. More power to this blog of yours!

  13. Now this is a steal. I am one of those that can't live without a mascara since I super love flaunting my lashes. LOL. Though right now hubby won't let me purchase a new one, kaka-purchase ko lang nung Loreal Miss Manga but I think I'll buy one next month! =) Cheers!

  14. This is a really great mascara! Let me know if this works for you :)

  15. Ubusin mo muna si Miss Manga :)
