I did a lot of makeup haul when I went to US. I never got the round to write a post about the said haul because it was long overdue so I'll be showcasing them as I use the product (or as I opened it).
My US trip was back in January and only now (August) that I opened this mascara for great use and I am smitten!
Here's the latest love of my life: Fresh Supernova mascara (in black)
|Fresh Supernova mascara in Black|
I got this in NY, when I went for the Sex and the City tour! The store is in Bleeker street in West Village and along side are Michael Kors newly opened store and NARS. Fresh cosmetics are one of range that SATC used during the TV series and the movies so that's why we were brought there.
I've heard A LOT about this brand so I was ecstatic when we got there. Best part was they gave us a discount just because we were doing the tour.
Packaging is too cute don't you think?! I am planning of keeping this tube even after expiry just because it's too cute!
The brush (I forgot the take a photo) is shaped like an hour-glass.. very sexy.
Formulation is a bit wet but once it sets it is the blackest of black. I do get panda eyes but to my surprise, it's not at all fugly, it adds character (smokiness). Saying that, that's my thing at the moment. I love how imperfect your makeup looks like at the end of the day, it adds that subtle sensuality.. (in my opinion). I normally pair this up with my Shiseido mascara base to add more oompph and to minimise the panda eyes scenario and it never fails to deliver.
Here's FOTD: (note that I have the common asian lashes, thin and straight. this mascara puts my lashes on the map... the map being my face)

|how black is that?|
I can't remember how much this costs in USD but I know it's not that expensive. I think I'll repurchase this when it's finished but I'll make it as a reward type makeup item :)
Just in case you're interested, I am wearing MAC Ravishing (cremesheen) mixed with MAC Bougainvillea (creme colour base).. yummy!
