Hey loves! I am back with a new review! I know I haven't been doing beauty posts because I have been pretty busy with food blogging (NOTE: Follow me on my food adventures on my other blog!) but I promise to post more here in the coming days!
I did a first impressions on this mascara which I will be embedding below for reference.
I will be reviewing Ricky Reyes' Magic Lashes.
I got this product from an event of Mother Ricky Reyes a couple of months back.
The whole claim of the product is say goodbye to false eye lashes because it will make your lashes look like you are wearing falsies. Mind you that I don't prefer wearing lashes because they make me feel like my lids are heavy and carrying some weights to build up muscles.
This is sold for about 2,000php at any Gandang Ricky Reyes salon.
This product is a whole system which consists of:
a wet mascara
a white fiber for lengthening
a black fiber for volumizing and mascara revival solution (no picture).
Its a pretty lengthy procedure so let me give you a run down.
1. Curl your lashes and apply the black mascara
2. Apply the white lengthening fiber on the tips of your lashes to add length
3. Apply a second coat of the black mascara to seal.
4. Apply the black volumizing fiber from the roots to the tip of your lashes.
5. Apply black mascara again to seal the volumizing fiber.
And as you can see the transformation of my lashes are really noticeable although if you notice it is quite spidery.

Application is quite tricky with the micro fiber because it will get into your eyes. I find it also messy the first few times when you apply this. Another thing is the wet mascara doesn't dry up easily so you have to wait a bit for it to dry before moving on with your other make up routine.
One good thing about this though is removing it is a breeze. It wouldn't require you to go through so much make up wipes just removing your mascara. I do like the effect that it gives my lashes because it really makes my lashes more noticeable but it doesn't give the full effect of like having false eye lashes.
Things I like about the product:
- Good packaging.
- Easy to remove
- locally available.
Things I don't like about the product:
- Wet mascara doesn't dry up fast.
- micro fiber gets to the eye
- takes a bit of time to get used to.
I do like this mascara don't get me wrong because after doing the first impressions video I've actually used it more and I thinks its a working process for each person.
Would you recommend this?
I wouldn't recommend this for daily use unless you really have to do it on a daily basis. If you are going to use this on events it will be a great staple. I would recommend this to make up artists.
Have you tried this mascara? Let me know your thoughts about it!
