Missha 4D Mascara | First Impression

I used to think that mascaras can still be worn even after six months but some beauty gurus say that a mascara becomes stiff and dry after three months. That said, it's not a good idea to buy an expensive mascara if you can't use it for a longer shelf life. I found this inexpensive 4D mascara from Missha through Althea Korea and boy was I impressed with how it worked well on me. 

Missha the•style 4D Mascara has been in the market for quite some time now but I never paid much attention to Korean products before because of availability issues. Korean cosmetics have been popular among Filipino consumers but since they're not widely available in the country before, we just end up opting for the products within our reach.

Beauty products like this of Missha still leaves me in awe in terms of its performance considering the price of just P170. I just can't believe how products as affordable as this can work as good as the costly ones. It holds up lashes really well from the time of application up to getting rid of the product.

It comes with a long and slim black tube with a tiny opening on the rim which gets a little messy when you pull the applicator from the tube which I don't quite like about it. I have yet to find out how long this tube would last since I don't wear mascara every single day.

Missha 4D Mascara claims to have vegetable cosmetic ingredients that minimize eye irritation which is great for people with sensitive eyes like me. I didn't even know that it's waterproof because I can't read Hangul but it was tested when I wore it one time and I cried during one of my church services (yes, I'm a cry-baby like that). Surprisingly, it didn't smudge at all.

This is how my thin lashes look like without any coat of mascara. Below has a single coat of mascara. It does make a lot of difference because it opened up my eyes and showcased my actual eye shape.

Another photo below shows how this mascara gives a great result after one coat. Tip: When applying mascara, start from the root of your lashes then wiggle the mascara wand so it would distribute the product evenly up to the tip.

I really love how it makes my lashes look fuller in a natural-looking way. Will I repurchase? Definitely, yes! Is it recommendable? Of course, yes! It's one of the products that I can confidently say, worth its price and performs the way high-end brands do.

That's all there is to my short and sweet first impression post. I hope you find it useful. You can still register with Althea Korea and use my coupon code to get a total of P200 discount on your initial purchase. Enjoy!
