Beauty Angel Turn Up Long Mascara Review

Have you tried fiber mascaras?
Or are you scared of using it for fear that those fibers would somehow poke your eyes? always resorting to false lashes when you want to have longer-looking lashes?

Well now, you won't have to!
I was able to try a lengthening & volumizing fiber mascara without the "fibers"!
Sounds confusing?

When i posted the Etude House Dr. Mascara Fixer, i mentioned a fiber mascara that i was using. Well, this is it! is nice enough to let me try out this mascara.
It's housed in a gigantic tube, much like Fiberwig. There are several colors that you could choose from, i just choose a pink one, but they have blue & green as well. I think the only difference is the color of the packaging but they have same formula.

Honestly, at first i wasn't impressed with it but as i used it every now & then i changed my mind. This is definitely a keeper!

Let's start with the wand...

Looks so ordinary.. no fibers at all!
Told you, this doesn't have very obvious fibers so you won't need to worry about poking your eyes while applying.

I'm already saying in advanced that fiber mascaras are heavy. When i say heavy, it could weigh your lashes down therefore uncurling the lashes that you worked hard to curl... dame da.. not good!

There are 2 ways to make sure that your curls will stay.

  • You either use a clear mascara after curling. Just like hair gel, once you put it on, it will keep your hair place. Same rules apply to clear mascaras...
  • You can apply heat to make sure it will stay longer... think of curling iron. Using a heated eyelash curler or heating your ordinary curler with a hair dryer could also work as well.
I mostly just use a clear mascara (or in this case the Dr. Mascara Fixer) to make sure that my lashes will stay curled for a long time.

Picture time...

That's only two coats! I'm already quite satisfied with it.
I think it looks nice already!

I have been a fan of fiber mascaras because it is the only one that elongates my puny lashes giving me that feathery look that i've always wanted. But let me tell you one thing why i sometimes get annoyed with fiber mascaras. Most often than not, those tiny black fibers could result to fallout which looks like it's flaking. There were even times when i would just feel like something is in my eye which makes me very uncomfortable.

I have never felt any fibers from the mascara on my eye since this one doesn't have an obvious fibers on. Yay!

The best thing that i like about this is that since this is watery, you can have achieve well-groomed, uniform-looking lashes easily. Again, this takes a while to dry so you can take your time fixing how your want your lashes to look. You can run a lash comb to separate each lashes, or clump them together to have that falsies effect. You can't do that with fiber mascaras now, can you?

Another thing that i like about this is that since this a fiber mascara, you can easily take it off by just using water! But since i am using a waterproof primer underneath, it's pointless, but if you use it alone, removing it is just a breeze!

Now, one thing that turns me off the first time i used it is that it has a weird scent. It has this chemical-scent that i find a bit disturbing. It will go away later though, at least it's not something so awful that will give me a migraine. I'm ok with it since it disappears in time & not really overwhelming.

Another thing that makes me go meh! on this is the drying time. It doesn't dry as long as high end ones. Those waxy, good-for-nothing, "uncurling", mascara from most western cosmetic brands that i've tried dries forever. Well, this is not like that, fortunately, but this still takes a while.

Just make sure that you don't rub your eyes while this is drying,ok?
But once this is dries, it's really dry. No flaking or smudging!

Those are my issues, but this is nevertheless, a great mascara.
It's a keeper in my book!

As always, i'll leave the price to you.. it's sold for $12.10 at

  • funky & cool-looking packaging (you can choose diff colors)
  • no obvious fibers so no fear of it poking your eyes
  • buildable
  • lengthens & "volumizes" the lashes
  • no smudging & flaking (once it's dry)
  • can be removed very easily!
  • takes a while to dry
  • disturbing scent
  • could weigh the curls down (use either of the method that i mentioned)
  • available online (but they offer free shipping worldwide!)

I would put this on my products-to-try again list!

Have a great Saturday,hunnies!

Crystal Gale said...

Cool! Your lashes became longer and fuller ^_^

Have you tried Blink mascara? Is this the same?

Awesome review... I don't like mascaras that takes a long time to dry, they often smudge easily.

Alenski711 said...

Wow thanks sa review sis :) how much sya? Hehe

Thiamere Brea said...

no,it doesn't
you can work with it while it's wet naman so it's easy to decide if you want spiky-looking lashes or full-looking lashes

Thiamere Brea said...

nah,i haven't tried blinc yet but i think the price is something that wouldn't make me buy it..haha

i always make it a point to never spend more than Php500 for a mascara e

Thiamere Brea said...

yeah, they do..
good thing that the DMF (dr mascara fixer) is able to hold my curls or else i'll have smudges!

Thiamere Brea said...
