Review: Lashem Double Trouble Mascara

I dream of long, voluminous lashes. I'm so tempted to do extensions even, or just join the craze in d.i.y. lash kit application. But my hesitations remains, I love dramatic results, but not all the time, and I don't want it to shout "falsey", believe me, I'll just end up being too conscious, hence too obvious of the pretense of it all! ;-D And I have super sensitive eyes. It must be wish come true that LASHEM, a brand dedicated to eye/lash beauty care sent me two items, which I'm coveting much...Double Trouble Mascara and Lash Gel. I'll do the mascara review today.

LASHEM Double Trouble Mascara 6ml sells fro $19.99+ online.
Product features, ingredients, and usage are written on the box in English and in French. While the actual product comes in a silver tube packaging with one end Volumizing, and the other end for Lengthening. 
Product Description: Double Trouble Mascara adds definition and intense dimension for seductive sultry eyes. One end contains flexible fibers to give you luscious, voluptuous lashes. The other end gives you longer, fuller lashes. The Double Trouble Mascara creates the illusion of bigger, bolder, beautiful lashes that go the distance.

Recommended Usage: For best results, apply the volumizing black mascara first, and then finish with the lengthening fiber black mascara for those Double Trouble lashes.

Although, they can be used separately depending on your need. Based on mine, I would want to indulge in the promise of fuller and longer lashes, so I use one after the other. ;-D

Wands come in varying design based on the proposed benefits. Swatch. Remember my drawbacks on how runny the Majolica Majorca's formula could get, this one is the exact opposite. This dries faster. Downside, it takes several several series of swipe-then-dip from the tube to get a good pigment. 
There's a noticeable difference after applying the Volumizing. Albeit, very minimal with the Lengthening after. P.S. I don't use eye lash curlers, because I usually end up having red, puffy eyes. I'm expecting a lot from the mascara to do a bit of lifting and curling per se. 
Overall, it ends up not too dramatic because it lacks the intense black pigment, but it delivers a bit of lifting, curling, and volumizing. :-D
Loves:
  • It's not waterproof, but it's smudge proof!...formula doesn't transfer to my glasses, and can even withstand sweat and oil. It actually lasted me 2 events, about 6 hours, without running or smudging. 
  • Non-irritating.
  • It's easy to apply, it barely clumps too. 
  • It's a big plus too that despite of having a great staying power, it's so easy to remove. 
Drawbacks:
  • To get more pigments, and more dramatic lifts and expansions, you have to do several series of swiping-dipping. By that time, I can't help but get impatient, hence clumsily poking my eyes even. Ouch! 
  • It takes getting used to on which side to open and to hold, since the labels come in small notations.
  • It a bit pricey for $19.99 ++ shipping.
FOTD...BB Cream: Luview Crystal Cover;  Eyeliner: SkinFood Sweet Almond; Mascara: Lashem Double Trouble; Lips: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Monte Carlo.
Overall, I love the natural lash lift and definition. It's something I don't mind applying everyday since it's almost no frills, and it takes easier to remove...super friendly to my sensitive eyes. I have to say that it's a keeper. It will remain as my basic, everyday eye makeup. Will I repurchase?  Maybe, if they have a compelling promotional deal, like this. ;-D
