"Better late than never, ika nga (like they say)," I remember my Filipino Language teacher uttering these words to me when I turned in my very late book report when I was in high school. I was expecting some stern words from him, but instead he accepted it and marked it fairly. Lucky brat *hahah*
For those of you who have been following me for a while now, you know about my midnight affairs with E-bay. Something about bid wars always gives me a rush and lol.. breaks my paypal account *yikes*. But like all addiction, I have reached the pinnacle and now I'm sobering up cuz I'm saving up for Christmas *haha*. Enough babble, I'm going straight to the point. This post is a review of one of my E-bay haul: Rosee Waterproof Mascara (about time =.=).
Product: Rosee Waterproof Mascara (Black), 7mL
Price: $1.95 (Free shipping, yosh!)
Description: (read text above, sry... I'm a lil' lazy today haha)
Just like all my Asian gals out there, my lashes are barely there and kinda stands out straight thus, curling and putting on mascara is a need, not a luxury. Below are photos of my lashes without any mascara on.
I used two coats of Rosee on my top lashes and one on my bottom lashes. I don't usually apply mascara on my bottom lashes cuz... well, that's one aspect of make-up application I have yet to master. I need to practice in order to be gosu with that. And yes, I know my brows are messy, sorry about that but your single girl's a bit busy lately >.<".

Ok... let's get down and dirty with this product. It's an "okay" product. I mean, I'm not really raving about it, but I'm not disappointed with it either. I mean, c'mon it's $1.95, so let's just say, I got exactly what I paid for.
- It's cheap (lol...)
- Apart from being waterproof, it's actually smudge-proof as well
- After application, it dries really quickly and doesn't leave those dreaded mascara streaks as you wait for the product to dry
- It's scent-free so it's perfect for those who are overly-sensitive towards products with strong scents
- The product is dry; I was expecting it to be more viscous like most mascaras are
- Perhaps because it's dry, it doesn't deposit that much of the product to the lashes with one application. Two coats look like one coat using the more pricey mascaras
What bothered me the most with it is that it's dry. I'm used to mascaras that are more liquid but this one's just a tad too dry for my liking. I checked the expiry date of the product when I first got it, and it wasn't anywhere near its expiration date yet so I was taken aback with it.
My verdict: It's... okay but I'm not going to go on a bidding frenzy for this product again. But then again, I'm not regretting I tried this out. It's a decent, everyday mascara plus its smudge-proof and waterproof features are an added bonus for something of its price.
And just a quick thought... Who among you dearies watch The Walking Dead? I am such a huge fan of it! Argh... I promise I'll do a post related to it soon so you'll know what the heck I'm yapping about. Especially Glenn (Stephen Yeun) hahahaha! That's him on the picture below, oh man, I want me some of that! lol! If you've seen this week's episode, boy does the plot thicken!!! I am so excited to see how Lori's dilemma unravels in the coming episodes *insert fiendish smile here*.
