Review: DAISO Espoleur Mascara (Black, Brown, & Clear)



PRICE & AVAILLABILITY I bought these in Daiso Harajuku branch located at Takeshita Street. Each mascara costs 200 JPY (without the tax). This pricing is not usual on Daiso because the products there costs 100 JPY (without the tax). The products that cost much higher than 100 JPY are usually have much better quality.


WHAT THEY CLAIM? The black is said to make your lashes up but look natural. The brown one claims to give you fluffy and natural looking lashes. The clear claims that it is safe to apply to lashes with extension.

INGREDIENTS
  • BLACK & BROWN Water, Glyceryl Stearate, Ammonium Acrylates Copolymer, Beeswax, Stearic Acid, Arginine, Carnauba Wax, Ceresin, Pentylene Glycol, Oleic Acid, Xanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Polyvinyl Alcohol, Methylparaben, Tocopherol, BG, Kiwi Extract, Cistus Incanus Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Lavender Flower Extract, Bilberry Fruit Extract, (+/-) Iron Oxide, Silica
  • CLEAR Water, Ethanol, Carbomer, Polyvinyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Pentylene Glucol, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Sodium Hydroxide, EDTA-2NA, BG, Kiwi Extract, Cistus Incanus Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Lavender Flower Extract, Bilberry Fruit Extract, 
TUBE The tube is made of plastic as well as the cap. It is fat on the middle. The colors are based on what color is the mascara but the cap are all black.


APPLICATOR I have my own standards for a good applicator. I just want it to be convenient and easy to manipulate especially on my under lashes. The applicator of this is just right for me. It is super easy to use  and I am less worried to mess up. 

QUANTITY The quantity is not stated on the packaging but I can see from the hole on the tube that they are full.


SCENT They all have very mild scent. The black and the brown have the same scent but very faint to the point that I can't describe it anymore. The clear one have a stronger alcohol scent compared to the black and brown. 

CONSISTENCY The black and the brown have the same consistency. They are not too thick and not too sticky. The clear is not thick as the other clear mascaras.





CURL The black and the brown couldn't hold the curls even with just one layer. The curl went down immediately after applying. The same thing happened with the clear. I don't know if it's my lashes or the product.

LENGTH The black and the brown are not that great when it comes to lengthening but it does makes my lashes look a little longer in just one layer. Applying a second layer doesn't lengthen lashes. The clear does give a lengthening illusion.

VOLUME The black gave a minimal volume that I wanted to have. It made my lashes look a little fuller and applying a second layer makes it more voluminous. It is enough to make your lashes look natural. The brown one is a little bit lacking and only gave very minimal volume. The clear gave a volumized illusion. 

WEIGHT I am confused about the weight of these. They don't feel heavy on my lashes but it can’t hold the curls so I’m also thinking that the formula is heavy.

BUILDABILITY It is better not to do multiple layers with these mascara. They will clump and make the curl go down.

COMFORTABILITY They are all comfortable to wear. They don't feel heavy and doesn't feel stingy on my eyes. 

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO DRY? It didn’t took long for the mascaras to dry. It only took a minute.

DO THEY SEPARATE LASHES? Yes, they do with the first layer.

DO THEY CLUMP? The black and the brown clumped when I went for another layer but they were perfect on the first layer. 

IS IT SMUDGE-PROOF? They are quite smudge-proof. I didn’t have to worry even my lashes is slightly touching my skin but when I rubbed my lashes (do not rub your eyes), there will be a little smudge.


IS IT WATER-PROOF? No, it’s not water-proof. The mascaras will wear off immediately when contacted with water. It’s not good to use when you are planning to go sweaty or watch drama movies.


LONGEVITY They will last all day or even another day as long as you don't sweat.

REMOVABILITY The mascaras were easy to remove with water. They wore off easily and didn’t gave me a hard time.

     (Black) I think, as this mascara gets old, it also gets better. It has more volume than the first time I used this.
