REVIEW | Fashion21 Double Up Mascara

I am on a roll! Here's another product review, my friends! I've used this before but it didn't wow me the first time so I am trying it out again. Fashion21 Double Up Mascara has been in the market for quite some time now and I can remember seeing other beauty bloggers use this.

Fashion21 Double Up Mascara (8g) | Php 225 Shade/s available: Black

This mascara highlights your eyes like no other. Its special formula is designed to make your lashes two times longer and stronger the moment you apply it without weighing your eyes down. This mascara also lasts for a long time without running or smudging, and the unique, fine-bristled wand lets you glide this product on easily without having to worry about clumping. No wonder it’s considered one of the best, if not the best, mascaras around by local makeup gurus. For best results, curl your lashes with an eyelash curler first. Then, starting at the base of your upper lashes, gently draw the wand upward until you reach the tips. Hold the wand vertically and run it across your lower lashes to color them. (source)

Watch the video below if you want to see how I used this.

The packaging is just adorable! I am loving the red metallic finish. Although it is made out of plastic, it does not feel and look cheap at all. The slim tube design added elegance to the look of the product.

At the back of the box, you will find the ingredients and instructions on how to use the product

This is a plus, in my opinion. They placed the manufacturing date on the tube itself.

Its wand has fine bristles made out of, I think, rubber or silicone material. It applies just enough product so no clumping was seen during the application. I also find it easier to apply mascara on those lashes at the corners of my eyes because of the tip of the mascara that has shorter bristles. As for the bottom lashes, I apply it vertically at first then horizontally to be able to coat as many lashes as possible.

Top: Untouched lashes
Bottom: Curled lashes

As you can see from the photo above, my lashes are quite thin and they are stick-straight. I can curl them but it needs tough mascara to hold the curl for hours.

After application of Fashion21 Double Up Mascara

After applying the mascara, my lashes were more visible but in a very natural way. It doesn't look made up or fake. Although I wasn't able to achieve that 2x longer lashes with one generous coat of the mascara, I am still satisfied that it did help in making my lashes more visible. Maybe, if I added another coat, I'll be able to achieve that.

After almost 8 hours, the length of my upper lashes is still the same but slightly drooped down. The mascara on the bottom lashes got removed in some areas. I saw traces of mascara on my under eye area.

What I like: 

  • Elegant looking packaging

  • Important details printed on the packaging (ingredients, manufacturing date)

  • No clumping and smudging

  • Emphasized my lashes by giving a nice coat

  • Easy to apply mascara on the corners of my eyes

  • Holds the curl for at least 6 hours (starts weighing down after 7-8 hours)

  • It forms into a film when exposed with water which makes it easy to remove

  • Available locally

  • Affordable


  • Not waterproof (It is actually okay with me since I like using non waterproof mascara on a daily basis. I am just putting this here as added information.)

What I don’t like:

  • After working out, some mascara on my lower lashes got removed and some remnants were found on my under eye area

  • Available in black only

  • I did not achieve the 2x longer lashes with one coat

I cannot say that this is my HG mascara at the moment but I like using this on a daily basis because of the natural look it gives my lashes. This also helps me rest my lashes from using hard to remove mascaras. If you are looking for a mascara that will enhance your lashes without the spidery effect, this can be a good product to try out. Now I know why fellow Filipina bloggers like this product!
