I don’t believe in batting my eyelashes. It has nothing to do with a strong work ethic; rather, it is due to my very short and straight eyelashes. So whenever I read about models chirping about mascara being their off-duty makeup must-have, my eyes go on auto-roll.

My disdain has dimmed recently, however, with Majolica Majorca Lash Secret Long. The sheer black mascara offers a water-based formulation so it goes on smoothly and dries quickly. What’s more, it even contains curled fibres that lengthen and push up lashes for wide-awake peepers throughout a day at the office. I also like the duo comb – it allows me to deposit the mascara and brush it through every lash evenly. While ladies who love layering mascaras can use this a base coat, I am contented using this on its own for now.  

As for batting my lashes, well, I’m working on it.   

Majolica Majorca Lash Secret Long is available for $25.90 exclusively at Watsons in Singapore, from July 2015.
