Fairydrops Scandal Queen Quattro Mascara

Sometimes buying beauty goodies in the UK, and in particular in Scotland, it can feel like you’re missing out. When I’m buying something new, I tend to like to play with it before paying for it. Obviously with some brands this isn’t possible, but when I laid eyes on tubes of Fairydrops mascara the last time I was in Selfridges I couldn’t resist.

I feel like Fairydrops mascaras were everywhere a couple of years ago, and then just kind of disappeared, so I was seriously pleased to see them in store. First off, they’re gorgeous – shiny pink tubes doodled with the logo, this isn’t a product which you’re going to loose to the bottom of your makeup bag.

The mascara lives up to the glorious packaging – it’s black, lengthening and curling i.e. everything I’m looking for in a mascara. Since I’m generally pretty light on the makeup, I don’t feel like having big black chunky lashes is a great look, so I’m always on the lookout for mascaras which improve my lashes while looking (relatively) natural.

I’d say the effect is a ramped-up version of the Glossier Lash Slick (review here). Fairydrops is a little darker, a little more dramatic. The mascara itself won’t damage lashes, and is enriched with squalene, jojoba oil, panthenol, hydrolysed collagen and moisturising hyaluronic acid to condition the look of lashes – so you don’t get that scratchy eye feeling after a long day. It wears well too – I’ve had it on during rain showers and spin classes, and even after the rest of my makeup has worn away, my Fairydrops lashes are still looking fresh.

Fairydrops Scandal Queen Quattro Mascara is priced at £18.50 and is available here (UK) and here (US)
